Mobile App Access 

Tip: The easiest way to download the ShowingTime app is to enter your email address and click Send Authentication Link. Open the email and download the app. You can also download the app from Google Play or App Store, but it is a longer process. The app provides all the same scheduling features as the desktop version, and with added mobility. An app is available to sellers and controlled by you.


Appointment Download Service Key (not frequently used)

If your brokerage uses another online scheduling company and appointments need to be forwarded to them, this is where you would add a service key, so it knows not to handle the appointment for you. Removing this key will allow ShowingTime to then again handle appointments going forward.
