Spruce Summer Quarterly: News and Updates

Spruce Happenings

It’s time for your quarterly dose of all things Spruce! We’ve rounded up the noteworthy happenings since our last update to keep you in the know. Read on to find out more about the newest Spruce features and enhancements, quick tips and helpful how-tos, a look into our community, some new content we’ve created, and events where you can find us!

New Features

We continue to develop new features that are intended to make your experience with Spruce even stronger. Two standouts this quarter are Dark Mode and Schedules.

Spruce Dark Mode

This highly anticipated feature has been designed to improve the appearance of the user interface and reduce eye strain, particularly in low-light environments. Learn more about Dark Mode, now available on all platforms.

Expanded VoIP Phone Support

We’ve added support for more VoIP phones, including models that natively support WiFi and Bluetooth, for easier connection and less expense. You no longer need to be hardwired or procure an adapter for a consistent experience.


In exciting news, if you’re a Spruce Communicator subscriber, you can now create and manage your own schedules from your Spruce settings! You can use schedules to control auto-replies and phone trees, so that they will automatically toggle to a different behavior at a designated time. Includes flexible support for holidays and one-time exceptions to your practice hours. Learn more about schedules.

Spruce API

We’ve officially launched the Spruce Public API, and the functionality includes syncing your contacts across all systems and enabling you to have events in other systems automatically trigger messages that get sent through Spruce. This could be used for things like appointment reminders, check in messages, and new patient welcome info. Learn more about integrating with the Spruce API.

In Exciting News

In exciting news, we’re thrilled to announce that Spruce has been recognized again for Best Usability, Most Implementable, Best Relationship, and Best Results awards by G2, a leading source of software-industry user reviews.

“Rankings on G2 reports are based on data provided to us by real software buyers,” said Sara Rossio, Chief Product Officer at G2. “Potential buyers know they can trust these insights when researching and selecting software because they’re rooted in vetted, verified, and authentic reviews.”
