Event type editor sections

When creating Calendly managed event types for your team, you are creating a set of parameters for when you want meetings to be booked. Within our managed event type editor, there are 6 different sections that can be customized to ensure you book your meetings as desired. These sections are:

1. What event is this?
This section of your managed event editor is where you can change the following settings:

  • Event name
    • Assign what you would like the event to be called.

    • Scheduling conditions
      • Set up a specific amount of time that is required to be notified before an event takes place. If you like requiring a 24 hour notice, this is the setting for you.

    • Maximum allowed events per day for this type of event
      • Limit the number of times a particular event can be scheduled per day.

    • Time zone display
      • Calendly will automatically detect the time zone of invitees when they visit your booking page. However, you do have the option to lock the timezone for your event which we do recommend for in-person events.

    • Secret Event
      • Set an event as secret to ensure the only invitees who are able to book with you are those you share the link with. The secret event setting gives you the ability to prevent an event type from displaying on your Calendly booking page. This means only invitees you have manually sent a scheduling link to can access this specific event.
