Using Appointment Scheduling Blocks

Use Appointment Scheduling Blocks to embed Acuity schedulers that visitors can use to book appointments without leaving your site.

Although you can integrate the Acuity scheduler with your site, Acuity Scheduling and Squarespace are separate platforms. You'll manage your bookings and payments through Acuity Scheduling account, which you'll need to create before you get started. If you don't already have an Acuity account, sign up.
