    If you use Google Calendar you can just create an event in that calendar (not via Calendly) that blocks the specific date/time you want to show unavailable in Calendly.

    Is there a way to do this?

    Agreed. This needs to get done. Any other scheduling software I have used has this feature.

    This is REALLY important.

    As a user, I have in-person meetings this week at 2:30pm, but my calendar is showing 2pm as available. But I'll be traveling. It's annoying to have to make an extra calendar event to block the time.

    Ideally, the user could open the Calendly interface, and simply "x" or "turn off" those time slots, basically making them unbookable for other potential appointments.

    PLEASE ADD THIS!

    Schedule an appointment with yourself and then that time will be occupied.

    Also, blackout across calendars (for those of us with multiple calendars/links). It's arduous to update each and every one of them every time our calendar needs an adjustment. 

    Is there a way to do this? thanks,

    It would be great if the blackout dates could be applied to all event types at once, instead of having to adjust every event individually for the dates we'll be gone.

    THIS is ALSO exactly what I need too! I work at a school and part of my job is training teachers in a PD capacity. I would like to have them schedule these OPEN media tech times according to the times in OUR schedule....forty-five minute intervals which vary according to the particular date and day.

    Is this possible to create a calendar a week at a time and post so users can see what is available at a weekly glance? It may be , but I haven't figured this out yet!

    I agree. I would love to be able to block out a time within a day since I may not always want 9-10 off, but one day I have an appointment or something. More flexibility would be helpful.

    Yes without the ability to blackout specific times on specific dates calendly makes it difficult to be used as a true live scheduling tool.

    I agree with Jamiah, if you have multiple calendars, syncing is not an easy answer.

    Allowing the user to block out times on individual days is key.

    I'll echo the thoughts/sentiment with the OP, and piggy-back on to it by saying I'm sorry, but the "official answer" from Amanda Lynn is not a very good one. I shouldn't have to clutter up my google calendar or outlook calendar with extra data to have this functionality. 

    It's beyond time for calendly to integrate a feature that allows, within calendly, the ability to blackout specific dates across ALL event types. Period. It stands to reason, quite simply, if you can turn it on for specific event types, you should be able to make it universal for all event types. Again, I don't want to do this in my google/outlook calendars - I want to do this in Calendly.

    Hey Dan -

    Really sorry for any confusion. The link in my comment should redirect to this article (https://help.calendly.com/hc/en-us/articles/223194148-Date-Specific-Rules) on how you can block time within Calendly. In the meantime, please know that we are evaluating a number of ways to make managing your availability even faster, so I'll gladly share your feedback with the Product team. 

    - Amanda
