Here are the new enhanced appointment features:

You can use this feature to set reminders for yourself and add them to your calendar, whether you use Google Calendar or Outlook, and send yourself a detailed reminder message. This is a great way to keep you on track following up with leads and prospects and customers, or just use it as a reminder for other business needs.

It’s also a great feature for creating an appointment with a contact, and not only sending them text and email reminder messages, but adding the meeting to your calendar so you can easily send a calendar invite to them with all your appointment details.

The appointment feature also integrates really well with external calendars like Calendly or Book like a Boss, or any of those tools where you have people booking appointments with you. Now you can flow that directly into CLOSEM.
