Standing Appointments

Learn what Standing Appointments are, when to use them, and how to create them

When a client comes in every other week for a manicure, or every 6 weeks for a haircut, setting a Standing Appointment will tell the program to automatically schedule a repeating service for this Client. All you have to do is select the option once and the program will schedule every other appointment for you. You can also remove the standing appointment series which removes all future appointments in that series.

If dates fail to book when creating a standing appointment, Envision Cloud will alert you with a popup window.

Standing appointments usually fail to book when a slot is full, an employee is not scheduled to work, or the business is closed.

✏️ Edit Standing Appointments

You can change a single appointment in a series without impacting the other Standing Appointments. Just change the appointment as you would normally for any individual service (like dragging and dropping on the schedule). 

Block times may also be entered as Standing, creating repeating times that employees are unavailable for booking, like lunches or regular absences.

Right-click over a block time and select Manage Standing.manage standing appt-1

Edit the details of the standing appointment as needed and click Save Changes.
