Before you start...

Start time increments are fixed and are only available up to every 60 minutes. If you need to set  specific available start times, we suggest you set intervals or time frames that you are available to take a meeting. You can do this from editing your schedule or setting custom hours.

  1. From your Calendly Home page, locate the event you want to edit and select it.

  2. Expand the When can this event be booked? section. At the bottom of the section, select Additional rules for your availability.

  3. At Start time increments, select the frequency. The shorter the frequency, the more start time options your invitee sees.

Set your event's time zone

Calendly will automatically detect your time zone as well as the time zone of the invitee, so you don't need to adjust it yourself! If you are meeting in-person, we recommend locking the time zone to the location of the event. timezone.gif

Make an event secret

You have the option to make your event type secret. This will hide the event from your main scheduling page, and only make it available to invitees with whom you share the event type's link.secret.gif

Specify the date range in which others can book with you

  1. From the Calendly Home page, find the event type you'd like to edit.

  • Within a date range, then select the box to choose a specific range of dates on the calendar.
  • Indefinitely into the future, to allow others to book time any time in the future.
