- What can I use the Virtualvancouver.com Appointment Scheduler for?
Virtualvancouver.com allows you to create an on-line Appointment Scheduler that can be integrated into your existing website or used alone.
- Who should use the Virtualvancouver.com Appointment Scheduler?
There are many instances where a quick and simple on-line Appointment Scheduler can be useful. For instance, if you run a club, you can create a simple Appointment Scheduler to handle booking of the club boardroom or scheduling of interviews for prospective club members. Virtualvancouver.com's new Appointment Scheduler allows you to do this and more.
- How does it work?
Basically there are four steps:
A. You register. You register for our service.
B. You enter the times and activity choices. Using our simple interface, you tell us what times (or ranges of times) are available and what actvities can be scheduled. For instance, to book prospective club member interview times, you specify the date/times (or date/time ranges) you are available and how long the interviews are to last. We create the Appointment Scheduler for you based on your information requirements and we tell you the Scheduling Page URL.
C. You tell your visitors. Tell your visitors about your on-line Appointment Scheduler. In the case of the club member interviews, you would tell club members to go to the on-line Scheduling Page URL to book a time. If you have a web-site you can have a link from it to the Scheduling Page URL. Another good way to make your users aware of the on-line Appointment Scheduler is to include the Scheduling Page URL in all club posters and other advertisements.
D. Users (or you) book a time using the Appointment Scheduler. When your visitors (or you) complete the on-line Scheduling information, the information they input is stored for you. When you are ready to see the scheduled appointments, just login.
- Do I have to install software?
No, just compete the information in our simple interface and you're set.
- Can I use the service if I don't have my own web-site?
Yes. Since you will be provided with your own customized Scheduling Page URL where your Appointment Scheduler can be found, just tell your users to go to that URL to schedule a time.
- How do I get users to use my Appointment Scheduler?
There are many ways you can do this depending on what sort of scheduling you are doing. If you are scheduling club member interview times for instance, you can:
(1) Add a link from your web-site to the Scheduling Page URL
(2) Include the Scheduling Page URL in all your advertisements
(3) Print the Scheduling Page URL on business size cards and hand it out at your Club Days or other events
(4) Post the Scheduling Page URL on your club events board
- How much does it cost?
It's free (see our mission statement to understand why). In the future, we will be offering premium services for which there may a be a charge.
