We use Calendly and send the data to Airtable using Zapier so we can have
records of everything.  That setup may be a bit more complicated than what
you need though.

This article will explain and help you set it up, if you're interested:

Calendly on its own is very helpful and they have a free option.

>> We are a DIY shop, and we have insurance. Our insurance does cover

>> It's tempting to believe that since our organizations tend to have

>> opening your staff, board, or volunteers to liability.
>>
>> We'd also like to think that our friends and guests aren't the suing
>> types. But people don't sue because they're jerks (okay, some do), but
>> because they're desperate. They sue because our health care system sucks,
>> and they'll be bankrupted by bills,

>> And it's not hard to demonstrate in court that we are trusted resources
>> who should know better than allow someone to install their own front wheel
>> without making sure they understand how to use that quick release, the part
>> responsible for more lawsuits than any other component.
>>
>> On this topic, I'm wondering a couple of things. We have a ponderous
>> waiver for people to fill out, and I'd like to trim it down.
>>
>> Do most community shops use waivers, and is there any template?
>>
>> And, maybe more to the point, have any of you ever been sued, and, if so,
>> did a waiver help at all?
