Create bookable appointment schedule pages to let anyone choose a time to meet with you
Previously, if you wanted to automate how someone booked an appointment with you, you would have used a third-party app because Google Calendar didn’t offer a function to let people autonomously book appointments on your calendar. The app would connect to your Google Calendar to show a booking page to your contact with times you are available to meet.
As of April, there is no need to use a third-party service; Google Calendar now has native appointment booking.
Appointment booking or “Appointment Schedule” is enabled for all Google Workspace accounts, excluding essentials, business starter and frontline editions.
If you have ever used the Appointment Slots feature in Google Calendar, you will need to activate Appointment Schedules in your Google Calendar settings by placing a tick in the box “Create appointment schedules instead of appointment slots”.
Set up a schedule and booking page for your Google Calendar.
To create a new booking page for your Google Calendar, you need to:
There will also be a link to your booking page to send to people who want to book a meeting with you. Save this page to your bookmarks to easily access it and share it.
You have now completed setting up your Appointment Schedule.
Wherever you have an Appointment Schedule running, you will see a narrow event running down the left-hand side of each day that the schedule is active. Click on this event, and you will see the option to edit the schedule.
