If you use Drupal and thought it might be nice to have anApple-style Genius Bar that allows your customers and prospects to scheduletime with you, you’re in luck. TimeTrade, which specializes in online appointmentscheduling, has released a Drupal module that makes it possible at this week’sDenver DrupalCon.

Click to Schedule for Drupal

TimeTrade’s new Drupal module makes it easy for site owners to offer users a tool to schedule an appoint with sales, support or other staff. Instant scheduling could provide a more streamlined user experience than having visitors send an email or use a contact form, which typically require multiple follow-ups and could lead to a lost opportunity. According to TimeTrade, 

Embedding self-service scheduling into websites not only enhances the visitor experience, it has been proven to significantly accelerate customer engagement, conversion and loyalty, while simultaneously boosting customer satisfaction.”

To use the Click to Schedule module, site owners need to install it, add users and connect the users’ Outlook or Google calendars. Once the TimeTrade Click to Schedule module is installed and configured, it creates a button labeled “Click to Schedule” on the site. The scheduling button’s size and color can be customized to blend with the site design.

Learning Opportunities

Additional details on the new module are available on the TimeTrade product page.
