Inspiration

Since many businesses (stores, restaurants, etc.) are limited to how many people they can have in a room at once, I thought that creating appointments would be much more useful than having long lines of people spaced out.

What it does

Allows customers to schedule appointments via text and records appointments on a google sheets schedule for businesses.

How I built it

I used Twilio to design a chatbot and connected that chatbot to a google spreadsheet.

Challenges I ran into

I had to learn how to use Twilio as well as how to code my google sheet to communicate with Twilio.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I was able to create a chatbot which can actually communicate with users.

What I learned

I learned about how different services can communicate with one another as well as the vast amount of services available to design pieces such as this Appointment Maker.

What's next for Appointment Maker

I hope to be able to edit Appointment Maker to treat the appointment times as variables, allowing for each time to be removed once it is taken.
