Scheduling Meetings

Aug 16, 2023
For our August newsletter we looked at online tools that help us get things done.

We're going to be looking at tools for

  • scheduling meetings (including scheduling time with Karel)
  • scheduling content on your website

ChatGPT (another online tool ;-) ) wrote us a short history paragraph about online scheduling apps:

The history of online scheduling apps dates back to the late 1990s. Initially, online scheduling was limited to basic calendar tools. As technology advanced, more sophisticated online scheduling apps emerged, offering features like appointment booking, automatic reminders, and integration with other digital platforms. The rise of smartphones in the late 2000s further fueled the development of scheduling apps, making it easier for users to manage their time on the go. Today, online scheduling apps have become an essential tool for individuals, businesses, and organizations, streamlining the process of managing appointments, meetings, and events efficiently and conveniently.

Let’s look at a practical example of the use of an online scheduling tool:

You want to check Karel’s availability at short notice. You’d like to speak to him tomorrow, but it is already after hours. No worries - just use the online book-a-chat functionality on our website!

In much the same way as you can book your next restaurant visit via Dineplan (isn’t it just great, and proudly South African), you can see in real time which of Karel’s time slots are available, and book with one click! Another task done. And if your calendar is set up for it, you’ll get a reminder shortly before the meeting is due to start.

Most of the apps even have functionality for receiving payment for booking slots, which is useful for those of you who bill by the hour.

Contact us if you'd like to integrate booking calendars into your Juizi-built website.
