The Front Desk Web Appointment Book provides easy to access your appointment book in a web browser - whether you're on a computer, smartphone, tablet and even older PDAs, the Web Appointment Book can be formatted for your device. It is great solution for staff who need access to their appointments not only inside the practice but when they're outside of the practice as well.

You will need to have fully installed the Web Appointment Book software before reading any further. More info on how to do this can be found by clicking here

Once installed, to access the smartphone version, simply add /mobile to the end of your Web Appointment Book URL in your browser e.g. https://smartsoft.com.au/webplusdemo/mobile
