Dynamic Appointment Scheduling

  • Availability times, min/max appointment durations, and padding between appointments
  • Appointments are synced with staff members' Outlook calendars
  • Each department has a custom appointment registration form
  • Some departments have elected to combine their scheduler with a unique webguide to include pop-up chat widgets for general questions
  • Detailed statistics on the all appointments
  • LibCal provides auto-generated confirmation emails, reminder emails, and follow-up emails to students
  • We have linked the JSCC Zoom with LibCal so that meeting links are auto-generated for both the staff member and the student and these links are provided in all email communication with the student
