Tree Hugging



It’s Earth Day! And we’re excited about it. In honor of the day, today’s post is focused on the eco-friendly ways that ScheduleThing helps you organize your schedule.

  • It’s paperless. This one is obvious, but if your schedule of appointments is all online, there are no post-its, half-filled planners, or scraps of paper to waste.
  • Your calendar is synced. ScheduleThing keeps track of what you need to remember and can take it straight from your iCal, if you want. No separate calendar necessary.
  • Email notifications. We’ll let you know when someone schedules or cancels a time-slot with you by sending you an email. You won’t have to write it down anywhere, because it will automatically update on your site.

So when you get back from planting trees, feeding birds, and all your other Earth Day activities, take it a step farther. Sign up for ScheduleThing today and innovate with a “green” (and free!) online booking site.

Bonus: take CNN’s Earth Day quiz to test your knowledge about our home planet! 

April Showers

We’ve already blogged about how spring is back and we’re all excited that the (seemingly) endless winter season is finally over. Summer is on its way and that’s definitely great news.

However, one of the not-so-fantastic parts of spring’s return is all the rain that comes with it. The gloriously sunny days are interrupted by unexpected showers and storms, and some days can be just downright gray. We’re not too gloomy about it, though.


While we’re not actually singing at our desks right now, it is about to start pouring down rain outside. If you google, “ways to be productive on a rainy day,” we bet you’ll get a lot of results. We definitely did. Here’s just one example: this website lists ten things to get done while it’s raining outside. Organizing definitely makes their list, and that happens to be our specialty.

During one of the many showers that will pop up throughout the month, we recommend that you take a few minutes to either sign up for ScheduleThing or to update the ScheduleThing site you already have. It’s free and easy to do, and we bet you’ll instantly feel like you spent the gloomy day well. What better way to be productive than by setting up your own online booking site?

It’s professional and affordable, so you’ll improve your marketability to clients without breaking the bank. Go ahead, while it’s raining you’re stuck inside anyway. Take the product tour and get started now, before all the April showers actually bring the May flowers they promised!

No Fooling Around

It’s April Fool’s Day! Whether you love the prank-laden holiday or love to hate it, we bet that you’re going to be involved in some sort of joke today— either as the trickster or the one falling for the trick. Even President Obama is getting in on the action!

Hopefully you didn’t walk in to your office this morning and find it looking like this:



but if you did fall victim to a prank today, we have some good news: we’re not going to pull one on you. As usual, your ScheduleThing booking site is free to create. It’s up and running in minutes, and you make the rules.

If you do decide to upgrade, you have several options in price as well. Whether you are a small business, a medium-sized office, or a large company, we’ve got you covered. With prices ranging from $19 to $129 per month, ScheduleThing the perfect booking software that gives you just what you need.

Sign up today to show you aren’t fooling around when it comes to appointments and reservations!

Spring Has Sprung

March 21st was the official first day of spring– even though it may still be snowy and cold where you are. There are a lot of great things about spring: flowers, warmer weather, and March Madness, to name a few. Something that’s not so fun about the coming of spring, though, is spring cleaning.

ImageHere’s the deal: no one likes all the cleaning out and sprucing up that comes with spring each year. Somehow the stuff in our homes seems to magically multiply over the winter and there’s so much to do! 

As a ScheduleThing customer though, there are some really easy ways to fix up your booking site! The best thing is, you won’t ever have to touch a mop or broom. Here are a few suggestions of ways to get your site ready for the new season:

  • Update your reservation types.
  • Sync your site to your favorite calendar software.
  • Upgrade your account to accommodate for new growth.
  • Enable email notifications.

You can make all of these easy changes and updates just by logging in to your ScheduleThing account. And if you don’t have one yet, what better time than spring to start fresh and sign up?

Spring cleaning doesn’t have to just mean vacuuming or de-cluttering. Revamp your ScheduleThing booking site and get ready for the new season now!

Your Lucky Day

After a brief hiatus, we’re back! We know you’re glad to see us, but our return isn’t the only reason why today is your lucky day. Even though St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone and you might still be recovering from celebrations (or from getting pinched for not wearing green), we’re here to make your luck last longer.


First, check out this Huffington Post article about how to make your own luck. Our favorite of these suggestions is #3 on the list, which suggests that taking the necessary steps to succeed is the most important way to increase your luck. As the post outlines, this is the best way to be “lucky:” by creating your own success. You can do this through both preparation and motivation. If these sound like good ideas but you aren’t sure where to start, we have a suggestion for you: ScheduleThing!

You probably know from our previous posts that ScheduleThing can help you organize your life and keep your appointments and reservations in check.

Case of the Mondays

We know, it’s Monday. There’s one thing we all have in common on Sunday nights: we don’t want the weekend to end! The work week is long and for some reason Mondays always seem like the longest days of all.


HowStuffWorks recently came up with some ways to make working on Monday a little better, though. Their “10 Ways to Organize Your Home Office By Next Monday” will help you de-stress and work more effectively— and these tips can apply to your office at work as well as at home.

Our favorite is #2 on their list, “Rein in your calendar and to-do lists.” We think we know a software that can help with that (hint: it’s us!). Instead of relying on disorganized post-it notes, planners, and desk calendars, streamlining with ScheduleThing is much easier and more efficient. When you’re less stressed about your schedule, it’s much easier to focus on getting your work done and getting Monday over and done with as soon as possible!

If you try these tips, let us know what kinds of results you get and what worked best for you. By this time next Monday, you could have a newly organized office, plus an awesome new way to keep track of scheduling and appointments!
