API stands for application programming interface. An API is a way to programmatically interact with other software components or resources. Vendors that provide Appointment Scheduling and Booking software may offer APIs to their customers to allow custom interfaces or workflows. Typically, these are Enterprise solutions that can provide Software as a Service (SaaS) and allow more complex capabilities than offered "out of the box". See Vendors that provide API Capability
An Appointment confirmation is a message that is sent immediately after a user schedules an appointment or booking. Typically, these messages are sent via Email, and may include an .ics file attachment. In addition to email, the user can request an SMS text message, which requires an explicit opt-in from the user and a mobile phone number.
An Appointment reminder is a message that is sent some period of time after a user schedules an appointment or booking. Typically, these messages are sent via Email. In addition to email, the user can receive an SMS text message or voice message as a reminder. Scheduling software usually allows configurable rules for when to send a reminder, or how many to send. For example, a rule might be set to send a reminder 24 hours in advance of the appointment, and again one hour before the appointment.
Appointment scheduling allows a business or person to offer an appointment invitation to another person, from a calendar showing available dates and times. The person receiving the appointment invitation can then pick a date and time convenient to them. Appointments may have different durations, and may be either a specific physical location, or via a phone call or video conference meeting. Learn More about Appointment Scheduling
