Schedule Once is one of the original booking platforms built. Launched in 2008, it was a leader back in it’s hay day. It seems as though the site, interface and experience still belongs a decade in the past however. It is extremely difficult to use, despite a series of welcome modals and videos that try and explain how to use this system. It’s pricing is relatively competitive, and it does reporting quite well and has a rather comprehensive (if extremely dated) notifications customization system. Yes, it can do many scheduling tasks, none of them take your breath away and it would not be surprising to see a mass migration of users away from this system.

Above we detail a comparison table of Schedule Once with Cogsworth features based on a December 2018 review kindly facilitated by our users.
This is why sites like Capterra, Getapp, Finances Online are driving so many people to seek and find alternatives to Schedule Once.
