A high-quality technical documentation ensures an optimized customer satisfaction. This is why the New Year is also the best time for good resolutions: our Sagenda API has already set its goals and built strength for 2020. Here are the key changes:
When is your agenda due to start? Would you like to display the daily calendar and hide the monthly calendar? You have already defined these settings in your Sagenda account so you may now have access to plenty of settings using the API.
Recently, the Sagenda API allowed access to the list of free events so users could book, cancel or block any of them. Now, you may have also the list of information concerning existing bookings. Thus, you may automate (import/export/synchronize) bookings using your various business applications and Sagenda.
A car without wheels doesn’t get you anywhere. Providing a clear explanation, a detailed documentation and a testing sandbox is as important as ever for an API. Therefore, we have replaced the former Sagenda documentation with a new version readily available from the PostMan platform: https://documenter.getpostman.com/view/3283093/SW7aXT2M?version=latest

Sagenda Scheduling for Android Is Now Available on Google Play
Sagenda is now launching its online scheduling app for Android devices. Making online reservations has never been easier: from booking school classes, outdoor activities to massage appointments, it’s all done online and most of it on mobile devices.
Therefore, Sagenda for Android fills in the gap of an existing need requested by our loyal customers: mobile apps drive the growth of cross-industry online booking due to high smartphone penetration. Since Android accounts for 76% of the worldwide mobile market share, Sagenda as a scheduling app targets a mature and ever-changing mobile economy leading to complex revenue opportunities.
According to recent reports, one third of people use mobile booking apps while most of last-minute bookings are made on mobile handheld devices. These are strong indicators that desktop bookings will no longer dominate the market of online businesses. In line with this trend, Sagenda for mobile may be used across the entire Android ecosystem. All you need to do is open Google Play, search for “Sagenda Scheduling” app and click “Install” on your Android device.
Easy to use and boasting a sleek design, Sagenda for Android allows users to display their existing bookings or appointments. In the near future, additional features will be available such as real-time booking management for cancellation, removal or inclusion of new bookings.
Imagine you’re already on holiday away from your desktop: how convenient to edit or cancel your reservation right where you are. Get onboard and install “Sagenda Scheduling” for Android!
Sagenda Scheduling for iOS Is Now Available from the App Store
Sagenda is now launching its online scheduling app for iOS devices. Making online reservations has never been easier: from booking school classes, photography lessons to massage appointments, it’s all done online and most of it on mobile devices.
An iOS app generates 83% more revenue compared to Android. Therefore, it makes sense to launch a Sagenda scheduling app for iOS considering the profit share on iOS is much higher. Furthermore, iOS is less time-consuming thanks to Apple’s user-friendly graphical interface.
Sagenda is an app that may be used across the entire iOS ecosystem. All you need to do is open the App Store, search for “Sagenda Scheduling” and click “Install” on your iOS device. Easy to use, Sagenda for iOS allows users to display their existing bookings or appointments.

New Sagenda Features: Registration Closed Earlier and Concurrent Event Management
Usually, an improved time management is all you need to enhance your work productivity. As a result, Sagenda has just come up with two features for the online booking process: on one hand, the option of closing registration at any given cut-off time and on the other hand, the option of blocking concurrent events to maximize ROI on an item-exclusive booking event.
Close Registration at the Right Time
To achieve a better flexibility, you may now enable a feature in order to close online booking at a specific cut-off time. For example, imagine your concert event does not sell well: you can close the online registration at the very last minute; in case of a sold-out chalet, owners may close registration well in advance.
For each event pattern, registration can be closed at any given time: X minutes, hours or days ahead to ensure flexible planning and improved client communication.
Multitasking is nothing but a myth debunked! Online booking processes are often supported by short-staffed departments. Although most companies offer a wide range of services, which are easily handled by an online scheduler, booked services often exceed offline process management.
For those of you who would like to focus on an item-exclusive booking event, you may now enable a feature to block concurrent events. For example, an understaffed spa center may choose to focus on massages and temporarily block other services.
Why not give it a go and let us know what you think of the latest Sagenda features! For questions or suggestions, feel free to contact our technical support.
