    Hi all -

    Thank you for submitting this idea! While I don’t have a target date on when we will be able to view these subscription holiday calendars as busy, I can share your suggestions with the team to discuss further.

    Best,
    Hannah at Calendly

    This should really not be that hard to do, just add the option of importing a public holiday calendar that a user has setup in Google Calendar and let them specify to auto-block all these days.

    This is quite a disappointment... If you are asking for customer feedback, I think this is one!

    It is now 2019 and yet this problem is still not resolved... The reason why we choose to use Calendly is to save time, and now you are asking your users to manually duplicating all public holidays every year because your engineers are too lazy to extract public holidays from Google's calendar. How hard can this be???

    1. Extract public holidays via Google Calendar API --- surely someone has done it before

    2. Add a flag to automatically mark all holidays as busy

    Co-signing on the suggestions listed here. It should not have taken a year for the Calendy team to address this topic. I imagine we won't be getting this any time soon which does affect how long I'll continue to be a customer.

    Ditto - agree with this post. Holidays should be blocked off automatically or give us the option to opt in or out.

    Totally agree with this post.  I am shocked Calendly doesn't fix this.

    I'm shocked Calendly is not fixing this. Are you going to fix it or not? It's really really simple... if not explain why is not?

    Neither iCloud Calendar nor Google Calendar feeds are options. So I have to manually block availability for national and regional holidays. Seems like this should be prioritized as a new feature. Add my name to the list of otherwise contented users wanting it.

    Based on this we've decided use another service. Subscription is renewed a few weeks ago but disabled auto renewing. Sorry guys!

    I have the opposite problem. I use this app to book my second job, but my clients cannot book for upcoming Sept 30 because it's a holiday. It seems from what people are saying that people CAN still book on a holiday, but my clients cannot. Suggestions?

    Being able to organise public holidays in a scheduling app is not just a nice-to-have feature, its very important. Why calendar integrations when public holidays in those same calendars are ignored?

    Wow... it has been almost two years and this problem is still not fixed...

    Once again, you've made my client book on a holiday. Thank you Calendly...

    Start searching for a replacement now.

    In this screen here, you can add an optional drop-down to select a holiday calendar. This way people can customise their availabilities for different event types.

    Hi,

     

    Is there an ETA for this?

     

    Thanks

    We would love to see this added or an equally efficient workaround. We removed all of our holidays from the calendar in January, but someone updated our calendar and overrode all the changes so we just had clients book times on Memorial Day.

    I then had to go in and mark each holiday as unavailable for each event we have listed – a lot of manual work for something that may get overridden again.

    Adding my plea to this topic. Please add this feature, it's a major pain-point. Thanks

    How is this not a default feature?? Just had to reschedule a meeting because Labor Day was not already blacked out.

    Move this to the top of the roadmap

    How is this not a feature? This seems super basic.
