Private Beta Feature

The ability to book over scheduled meetings is currently in private beta. During private beta, this functionality can only be set up to book over non-Calendly created meetings. Once this feature is fully released, functionality will also include the ability to book over Calendly created meetings as well.


These event settings allow you to open up more time within your calendar than what is typically indicated as free. This provides you with more flexibility in setting and managing your availability within Calendly.

Before you begin

  • This functionality allows you to: 
    • Book over/override reserved times on your calendar
    • Book over/override events where you are optional to attend on your calendar
    • Book over/override events 60 days into the future

  • This functionality does not allow you to:
    • Book over Calendly scheduled events
