Best Battery Optimization settings for using Appointfix app

Mar 14, 2018

Due to restrictions from Google, reminders aren’t fully automated anymore under the Basic and Premium plans. One tap is required for each reminder to be sent. We’ll send you a push notification each time you need to tap for sending an SMS reminder, or you can go to Menu → Reminders each morning and send the reminders for the whole day. We’ve received lately feedback from few of our Android users (on the Basic and Premium plans) that some notifications are not received when they were supposed to.

When does the initial sync occur?  When you install the app on a new device, at the first login, the app will sync with our server and get all data back: appointments, clients, services, settings, basically everything.

Apr 10, 2017

We’re excited to announce that in the next few days we’ll be releasing the new Appointfix.

The update will be available as usual through Google Play and upon installing it, you’ll need to create your account, as the old app didn’t have user accounts.

Free alternative to StyleSeat for booking appointments

Oct 25, 2016

Appointfix allows you to keep track of appointments and automatically sends reminders to your clients. It is currently available as a mobile app on Android devices and we’ll soon launch for iPhone too. However there’s is…...

Jul 22, 2016

According to a recent study from WorkPlaceTrends.com over 1,000 working professionals, 45% of workers feel they don’t have enough free time; their job is colonizing their entire day, not just 9 through 5. Personal trainers are no exception to this, so let’s look at what can be done about it. 1) Use a mobile app to manage your appointments Instead of relying on the old-school pen and paper or on a desktop solution that keeps you tied to your desk, choose to manage your appointments using a mobile app. Once such an app is Appointfix, which presents itself like… Read More→
