Appointments: Overview

You are here:
< All Topics

A main feature of Qbitt is the ability to book appointments online. You can use the feature in a variety of ways. You can book time with friends and businesses. Also, if there’s something you want to plan, you can add it as an appointment in Qbitt and receive notifications so important items and deadlines aren’t forgotten. These are some examples of what you can set up as an appointment.

Appointments with:

  • Qbitt friends
  • A business

Reminders to yourself to:

  • Complete a task
  • Schedule an appointment too far in advance to book now (for example, some medical appointments)
  • Make a payment (for example, tax payments)
  • Complete and submit paperwork for life events (such as school vacations and meetings, and college admissions and related tasks)

Appointment Types

Qbitt provides three options for setting up appointments: Myself, Friend, and Business. These are color-coded on the calendar so you can determine at a glance what type of appointment is scheduled for any particular day.

Myself

You can use this option to set up appointments to remind yourself to complete a task, complete and submit forms and paperwork, pay a bill, create an errand list, schedule family activities, or anything else you can think of. Once you add an appointment, you receive text message notifications to remind you so you don’t forget some important task. You can also book something far in advance, as you can scroll through months and years ahead. Only you can see the appointment you schedule using this option.

Friend

Arrange to meet a Qbitt friend at any time and add the destination to include information about where to meet. To arrange a recurring meetup with your friend, you can schedule in advance. The friend needs to be set up with a Qbitt account for you to use this feature. Note that a Qbitt friend can be any person in your life who has signed up for the app. Examples include but aren’t limited to a friend, family member, colleague, or acquaintance. Two people can see the appointment: you (the originator) and the Qbitt friend (the recipient).

Business

Some businesses are included in Qbitt. Business owners can go one step further and set up and verify their business in Qbitt. They can also add employees and services. Then you can make appointments with businesses. When you do so, you can identify the service for which you want to book and a particular person as well – on a day and time that works for you. Multiple people can see the appointment: you (the originator), the business account (a recipient), and the person at the business with whom the appointment is made (a recipient).

Calendar Module

The main section in Qbitt to view and book appointments is the Calendar module. This is identifiable via the calendar icon, which is in the lower navigation bar on mobile devices. On the desktop, it’s in the left navigation bar.

  • Blue: myself
  • Orange: friend
  • Green: business
