Manage advanced availability rules
IN THIS ARTICLE:
Customize start time frequency
Your availability increments determine how often your time slots appear. For example, if you set up a 60 minute event that starts every 30 minutes, your event start times will appear as:
If an invitee schedules the 60 minute event for 9:30, then the next available time slot will be 10:30. Because the 60 minute event is from 9:30-10:30, the 10:00 time slot will disappear from the scheduling page.
Limit the number of events scheduled per day
Use the "Max number of this event acceptable per day" setting to prevent days filled with back-to-back meetings. Defining a maximum number of events will be applied to that event type only. If you need to maintain control over the number of events scheduled, then you will want to ensure each event type has a limit.
Add a minimum scheduling notice
Enter the amount of time you would like to give yourself before a meeting can be scheduled. The default minimum scheduling notice for all event types is 4 hours, but can be left blank if you don't need it.
Add buffers before or after events
Adding a buffer allows time to be tacked on to scheduled events. If you would like to add gaps of time between start times, then you'll want to edit your start time intervals for that day's availability. You can use buffer settings to:
- Account for meetings running long
- Give yourself adequate time to commute
- Adequately prepare for a meeting
- Regroup, take notes and send follow-up
