By Setmore Appointments
Free, powerful online customer scheduling for businesses of all sizes.
Welcome to the new Setmore blog! (This was going to be a New Year’s reveal but we couldn’t wait.) In addition to the shiny new coat of paint, we’re delivering some critical updates to our Android and iOS apps. Now you can upgrade to Setmore Premium from any supported platform, and we’re bringing Spanish and Portuguese language support to Android. Keep reading for details.
Premium Power on your Android phone
You can now upgrade to Setmore Premium from your Android phone! Unlock the power of text reminders to help reduce your no-shows, recurring appointments to keep your customers coming back, and two-way calendar syncs to manage your time better.
It all starts when you go to Account > Premium.
We also offer Premium upgrades on our web app and iOS app. Learn more >
Setmore em Português (y Español tambien) para Android!
We’ve added support for Spanish and Portuguese language settings in the Setmore Android app! This means you can get full back-end localization for the Setmore Agenda and Calendar view, and all menus and submenus in the Android app, in your preferred language (so long as that language is English, Spanish or Portuguese).
And if you didn’t know, your Booking Page, where customers book appointments with you online, supports dozens of languages already. Learn more >
Organize your team with staff login settings for iPhone
Previously you could only activate staff logins through the Setmore web portal. Now you can activate and manage your team logins from your iPhone, from anywhere. All settings are located in each staff profile under Account > Staff.
- Add a unique email address for each staff profile. (We’ll let you know if the email address is already in use.)
- Activate the staff login and set access levels to Staff, Receptionist, or Admin.
- Your team member will receive an email invite with instructions to create a password for their account.
