Prevent surprise meetings and limit events scheduled per day
IN THIS ARTICLE:
Set a minimum scheduling notice to prevent last-minute meetings, limit the number of events scheduled each day, and add before or after buffers to scheduled meetings.
When you are in your event type settings, click the "When can people book this event?" bar:
Then scroll down to "Show advanced settings":
Add a minimum scheduling notice
Enter the amount of time you would like to give yourself before a meeting can be scheduled.
Note: The default minimum scheduling notice for all event types is 4 hours, but can be left blank if you don't need it.
Add a before or after buffer to events
Use "Buffer before/after event" settings to:
- Account for meetings running long
- Give yourself adequate time to commute>/li>
- Adequately prepare for a meeting
- Regroup, take notes and send follow-up
Note: Adding buffers allows time to be tacked onto 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.
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.
Note: 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.
