Deployment Notes: February 2019.
This year is shaping up to be our most productive year yet. On the heels of the most expansive payments integration launch in Setmore’s history, we’re excited to announce the next big thing. Also, there’s yet another batch of stability enhancements and bug fixes to ensure that your Setmore experience remains top-notch and super smooth. Continue reading for details, below.
The next big thing is around the corner
We started 2019 by unveiling our Setmore-Square integration, allowing you to take payments with the free version of Setmore. Now we’re pleased to announce that the Setmore app for iPad is currently in closed beta! Our team and a few courageous Setmore-powered businesses are helping us stress-test the latest build for bugs and glitches. Additional invites to participate in the closed beta will be sent to select people in the weeks ahead.
The Setmore app for iPad will have the full functionality of the mobile Setmore platform, with the ability to:
- Book appointments across multiple staff calendars
- Manage your customer list for your entire business
- Take payments with the Square or Stripe integrations
- Get automatic reminders for upcoming appointments
- Share your Booking Page with customers, and more!
We can’t say for sure yet if there will be a public beta test, or when the tablet app will makes its public debut. If all goes well, it could be in a few months or sooner. (Note the Setmore app for Android-based tablets will be further down the road.) Watch this space – updates will be forthcoming.
The Squish List: bug fixes and refinements

- Updating a label or making a minor edit to an appointment will no longer trigger an “Appointment Rescheduled” update in the activity stream.
- Updating the Reminder Lead Time to a shorter duration will now affect appointments that were already scheduled on the calendar.
- Payment History has been improved and will now load data faster than before.
- Fixed an issue that sometimes allowed customers to skip adding a payment when booking a class session.
