Testing online booking software
Each year after the GCSE results are released our careers advisor offers 1:1 meetings to students who need guidance.
As a school we’ve used Google Apps for a number of years, and staff are used to using the calendar to keep track of appointments. What we wanted to do is give students an easy way to book their careers meetings straight into the calendar, removing another paper-based system in the process.
Youcanbook.me appears to offer everything we need. We can customise the appointment times, avoid duplicate bookings, and it automatically syncs with the careers advisors’ Google Calendar. Students visit the page (embedded into our website), pick their time and get a confirmation email of the booking.
And, it’s free! Worth a look if you’re trying to do similar online booking tasks for your school.
