Appointment Scheduling Blocks

Use Appointment Scheduling Blocks to share your scheduling page from Squarespace Scheduling so visitors can book appointments without leaving your site.

You'll need a Scheduling account to use this block. To learn more and sign up, visit Getting Started with Squarespace Scheduling. If you use Acuity Scheduling separate from Squarespace, you can also use this block to share your Acuity scheduler. This guide covers both options.
