ScheduFlow

CNET Editors' review

What's better than business scheduling software for keeping you on time, on track, and on your toes? How about business scheduling freeware? Duoserve's ScheduFlow 12 is an enterprise-quality calendar, scheduling, and contact management program that replaces paper-based calendars and appointment books. You can share calendars, appointments, and other data with networked users via a LAN or the Internet using e-mail or Web posting. It offers a full range of top-drawer features, including mobile device integration that syncs data with Outlook and most devices, Reports, Resource Utilization features like 3D Charts, and productivity applications such as Contacts, Timelines, and Appointment History.

ScheduFlow's setup wizard involves several important steps, including different installation options such as whether to install both the ScheduFlow Client and Server, depending on whether the software will be installed on a single computer or multiple computers and different network configurations. Since we installed the program on a single PC, we needed both parts. Given that it's freeware, you get a lot with ScheduFlow, and it takes a little longer to install and set up than more basic tools; for example, it includes specifying whether you use a firewall, and, if so, what type. We could configure port settings manually, too. ScheduFlow's installer offered clear explanations of every step. The somewhat lengthy and detailed setup process finished with a server connection option (for networked installations).

With its Office-style Start button, ribbon toolbar, and tabbed menus, ScheduFlow 12 will fit right in to most business environments. The user interface is based around an efficient, colorful daybook view that we could configure in sample themes or customize to suit. We could click Templates on the right-hand toolbar to call up a list of available calendar templates, including a sample Appointment template. Once you've configured your templates, you can drag and drop them into ScheduFlow's main window. You'll still need to add your Contacts and other data, but pop-up wizards make that easy, and you can access the data from other PCs once it's in your database. Ample help information is available. We were more than impressed with ScheduFlow 12 in our brief but productive time with this powerful, flexible business tool.

    "Not Freeware, Too expensive for a calendar."

    March 4, 2014  |   By kctree

    Version: ScheduFlow 12.0

    Pros

    Great looking calendar and software.

    Cons

    Google calendar is every bit as good as this. The top of the article said,
    "What's better than business scheduling software for keeping you on time, on track, and on your toes? How about business scheduling freeware?"

    I know the CNET window says it is 30 days to try, but you still can't call that freeware can you?

    Summary

    I just wanted a real freeware calendar that isn't google. I suppose I'll keep looking.

    "A must have for freelancers or those with many to-dos!"

    July 4, 2013  |   By JosephBeckham

    Version: ScheduFlow 12.0

    Pros

    The most intuitive task scheduling program I've ever had the pleasure of using. I can easily keep up with hundreds of jobs I've got keep up with and each with it's own deadline. I can easily see whats coming up this week and whats approaching it's deadline for my clients. It doesnt get any easier than this. And I can even keep up with tasks from home or from my tablet and smartphone. Totally a WIN software here.

    Cons

    Really none that I can think of.. I would say the initial setup is time consuming but thats not really a con.. I just have a LOT to keep up with :)

    Summary

    If you are looking for a program that can help you keep up with appointments , dates , tasks , multiple clients and then some... This is the software worth taking a look at. They offer a 30 day trial period and I have been able to easily implement it into any system and any machine I currently use. ScheduFlow is a must have for those needing to keep up with many tasks from many different clients even if you use different platforms like PC , Tablet , Smartphone. A great system here!

    "Amazing piece of software"

    February 9, 2013  |   By lowapgar

    Version: ScheduFlow 12.0

    Pros

    As a medical practice (american reproductive centers) we have been using this software from its early iteration. We continuously updated to the newer versions. I came to write this review because i feel sad that I'm leaving scheduflow. The good news for all my staff is that we are moving to scheduflow-Online. Same great software my staff is used to but now online. And since we expanded our practice to two new locations having the desktop version work via an online database, my staff and I can access our schedules from home, work (either office), or even our phones. With real time updates occurring while you watch on your screen. I don't believe there is any other scheduling software that can do all that (desktop, mobile, tablets + a database that is in the cloud) for the price we pay.

    Cons

    Its a shame that the reviewer below didn't actually review what this software can actually do for a business. I don't understand why setup.exe gave him such Bizarre reaction.

    Summary

    If you are a small to medium size business and you need excellent scheduling software this would be it. You can expand to mobile and to other locations with a simple click

    "Give me a break"

    August 10, 2012  |   By Jim Harmon

    Version: ScheduFlow 12.0

    Pros

    It looks interesting

    Cons

    Come on, folks - is every company so lazy that they cannot even take the time to name their file something other than SETUP.EXE? Like this is the only file I'll ever download, and that I won't forget what it's the setup program for?

    Summary

    Sure, I CAN rename the file when I download it (and I did), but first impressions are important - and this is a very poor one. ALL files should be named the same as the program - AND should include the version number in the filename. That is, this should have been named ScheduFlow12setup.exe

    "EXCELLENT PRODUCT"

    July 20, 2012  |   By lmdiduch

    Version: ScheduFlow 12.0

    Pros

    Love the software, it makes it so easy to schedule and share with my assistant, my desktop, my laptop, etc. My schedule is avaialble for both me and my assistant anytime we need it and changes in real time for both of us. I have been using it for about a year now.

    Cons

    Can't really think of any.

    Summary

    Sometimes a person gets the best customer service and I just did. I had a problem (my fault) had it solved via email in under an hour and Scheduflow went above and beyond, they even credited my account and I was the one who made the mistake!! Definitely can't beat that for customer service. I am so very impressed.
