Are you Available??

Written by Trevor Hanson on April 14, 2016

You know what’s fun? Killing two birds with one stone. No, no, I don’t like throwing rocks at our feathered friends, but I do love it when I’m able to get two things done at once. It just so happens that when we set out to build features to increase functionality for groups (wait, did someone say groups?), we also saw the need for more tools around online scheduling. So while this might be necessary for groups, we found that it’s also super helpful for the solo-clinician.


We’re bringing some amazing upgrades to Online Booking in SimplePractice to give you more control over your availability, while giving more flexibility to allow clients to schedule when it works for them. Introducing… SimplePractice’s Availability Scheduling!




With Availability Scheduling, not only are you able to indicate the times you are available so your clients can schedule their own sessions, you can also specify the services you provide during your availability blocks. We’ve integrated our Call-to-Book feature as well, which allows you to designate certain times or service codes as available to book by phone call.


Now, I know some of you are thinking, “Oh my gosh, I can’t wait for this!” But I also know some of you might be saying, “Yikes! This seems scary! I don’t want my clients to take over my schedule!” Don’t worry! Change might be scary, but this change is good because it gives you complete control of your schedule. SimplePractice’s Online Booking is the simplest way for you to be available to your clients and to make it easier for new clients to see you.


Stay tuned for some informative help center articles about Availability Scheduling once we release these features in the next couple of weeks!
