Acuity Scheduling

Description

Acuity Scheduling is online appointment scheduling software. This plugin allows users with paid accounts on Acuity Scheduling
(https://AcuityScheduling.com) to embed scheduling directly into their site. Use the [scheduling] short tag on any page
with the options described in the documentation to embed your scheduling site.

Documentation

This creates the [scheduling] tag to embed Acuity Scheduling into the page. Usage:
[scheduling site=”https://mysite.acuityscheduling.com”]

Options:
site: your scheduling site (required)
width: defaults to 100% (optional)
height: defaults to 600px (optional)
border: defaults to 0 (optional)

We recommend adding the tag in text mode instead of visual to prevent other formatting of the URL being
inadvertently added. Support is available at http://help.acuityscheduling.com/

  1. Download acuityscheduling.zip
  2. Unzip

This plugin allows you to embed an Acuity minisite within a wordpress site using iframes. I suppose it might be useful to a site owner who has never used WordPress, but anyone with basic WordPress knowledge can do that without a plugin. The support link just goes to the generic Acuity help, it doesn't mention wordpress at all, so it is essentially undocumented. It's not possible to create links to specific classes or events using this plugin. It's literally just a shortcode to create an iframe that shows the Acuity hosted site. Very poor. This plugin isn't listed on Acuity's own list of integrations and I can see why.

The writers of the documentation and CRM emails for this product make using it fun and cute. If you have a very basic need for scheduling where things don't get too complex, this can be a very reliable solution for you. One shortcoming of using Acuity is that your clients will have to register / log in separately for the booking service in addition to your WP site (if you have premium content or private pages for them). This is cumbersome and confusing to many of my clients. When multiple locations, calendars, and service providers start to get complicated, help is nowhere to be found. I have placed two inquiries in the past week with no response to either and there is no phone or chat support. I have to go elsewhere, my clients can't keep waiting to book appointments.

I have been using acruity for three months now and I love it. It's easy to use and tech savvy. I love the uniqueness of personalization the site offers and I love the price! I also love the personal options to block out your schedule or block out non compliant clients from scheduling appointments. I think it caters to the business owner without creating confusion for the clients, as he or she may schedule their appointments. I also love the free trial period and access to change anything at anytime to your site without going through an administrator. Love acruity!! Tracey Michele Owner, Glam Minks

I really did my research for the best scheduling plugin out there, and let me tell you Acuity wins hands down. It is very easy to use and incredibly intuitive. It's beauty lies in sheer simplicity You do not even need to install this plugin, just use the embed code from their website and it works like magic. Unlike lot of other plugins, they do not ask for credit card details while signing up for trial version (14days). Yay!. Their pricing is very competitive too. Almost 1/3rd of what vCita charges. Moreover, I found vCita to be rather complex, definitely more complex than Acuity. Also, Acuity had an option for discount coupon codes which vCita did not. I really love the intake form feature in acuity, it is very nifty. At the end of it, I would really not mind paying the amount they're charging. ($10/mo for single user business). They've really thought it out well. Look no more, go for this product, you'll be thankful you did.
