    Is this feature available? It is the only feature preventing me from using this platform.

    There's already an open request for this from 4 years ago here: https://help.calendly.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115000864988-randomize-black-out-times-so-i-look-busy

    Get over there and upvote it.


    I'll add what I said there:

    "As a web developer - I can assure you that this is a very real and possible thing that could happen.

    The key is - that you don't need to actually "book" any meetings. The array of timeslots could be set to always look 30% booked. Those timeslots aren't really 'booked' - but can be set programmatically to be 'buffer: true' - or something. You could then set a threshold of min/max - and always have a little bit of padding around - so that you don't look desperate. As your dates fill up - then the buffer blocks can open up. It's really a very simple functionality IF you don't actually book those times. Then - when you are past your threshold the rest open. So, maybe it's just about changing the expectations for how it's implemented.

    I'm not saying that lightly - or to just "say it's easy" - but if it's not - then please explain what I'm missing. I can build you a prototype in a CodePen."
