Enter your default location for face-to-face meetings.
If you have a preferred meeting duration you can update that here.
Your work hours #
Working hours can change depending on our commitments and we want to make sure you can reflect that in the Scheduler. Working hours are displayed in green but you can change these by clicking on the hours and turning the colour from green to white or white to green where needed.
We know how stressful it can be having back to back meetings so we’ve included the buffer option. Here you add a buffer time before and/or after your event so you have time to prepare or recap on the event.
Scheduling period #
When setting up an event you want to make sure it happens in a timely manner according to your schedule as well as your invitees, this feature allows you chose the time period you would like to offer slots for.
For Example, having 14 days selected will only allow your invitees to pick a slot in the next 14 days.
Minimum notice #
Make sure you have time to prepare for all your events by having a minimum notice set-up. Minimum notice ensures you have set amount of time between sending out your unique link and the earliest available slot that can be select.
Once you are happy with your preferences hit the save buttom and this will update to your Scheduler.
You can update your preferences select: Schedule Preferences
