Appointment Scheduling Handbook

Calendar Sharing on a Website

Appointment Scheduling apps are a huge success in the software market and the apps stores are swamped with competition among them. It can be quite intimidating to select one from so many and decide which suits you best. However, if your priority is integration of your calendar on your website you must consider the white-labeling features of the app. Apps like Zoom, Zoho, Calendly, Karen and Cronofy can be integrated in your apps or websites for appointment scheduling purposes.

API integration on website from Cronofy scheduling app

Cronofy is the most popular choice when it comes to website or app integration. With Cronofy you can use their API to integrate your caledar in your website or any application. They also provide embeddable UI Elements and SDKs for Python, .Net, Ruby, and PHP as well as community libraries for other languages. Cronofy fits all SMB suits with ease and allows immediate access to their Developers Dashboard.

Zoom provides the client with a vanity URL that can be customised in your own way to add your schedule and zoom conference calling link to your website. You can change the background image, brand name, color, size and much more in the settings. However, it is not so much a scheduling app and does not pool calendars.

Zoho offers both embedding and domain mapping where you can completely remove all Zoho logos to customize it to match your brand’s style and objective. You can also integrate with their payment portals and collect your appointment fess from the website directly.

Calendly also uses an API to provide programmatic control over their client’s data and allows customization. However, to carry out the changes you will have to register as a Calendly Developer and it requires some technical expertise. You can also integrate your PayPal or Stripe account to collect consultation fees from the embeded widget.
