Organize your business! Exploit human resources that can be used in other tasks more efficiently.

Easy!Appointments is a highly customizable web application that allows your customers to book appointments with you via the web. Moreover, it provides the ability to sync your data with Google Calendar so you can use them with other services. It is an open source project and you can download and install it even for commercial use. Easy!Appointments will run smoothly with your existing website, because it can be installed in a single folder of the server and of course, both sites can share the same database.

  • Workflow and booking rules.
  • Google Calendar synchronization.
  • Email notifications system.
  • Standalone installation (like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and other web systems).

  • Create a new database (or use an existing).
  • Copy the "easyappointments" source folder on your server.
  • Make sure that the "storage" directory is writable.
  • Rename the "config-sample.php" file to "config.php" and set your server properties.
  • Open your browser on the Easy!Appointments URL and follow the installation guide.
  • That's it! You can now use Easy!Appointments at your will.
