Appointment, Personal Event and Personal note in your Calendar.

Your calendar serves as a great scheduling software tool to easily see appointments, organize your staff and manage your business. Although showing appointments is its primary function, it allows you much more. It enables you to schedule your own events for any particular day or edit the existing ones.

Appointment

A classic scheduled appointment that was either created online by a client using your mini-website or by you or your staff in the calendar. It can either be a single appointment or it can be set as a recurring one.

Personal Event

This is created by you or a staff member in the calendar. Personal Time feature enables you or your staff member to easily schedule absences, lunch breakes or any other types of personal time. Same as the appointment, you can also set is as a recurring event.
