Traveling to a different timezone for a fixed amount of time

In this solution, you'll create a new Google or Outlook calendar in your account that will hold all of the bookings for the period of time you'll be travelling, for example if you are based in New York, but need to take bookings for a conference you're attending in Berlin. 

In Google calendar click  + next to Other calendars, and select Create new calendar. Edit the name of the calendar, and set this newly created calendar to the timezone you'll be taking bookings in. To confirm creation, click Create calendar. 

In Outlook, click Add new calendar and select Create Blank calendar

In your account, you'll create a new booking page on your dashboard just for this period of bookings. This will be the new booking page link you share with your bookers for this period of time. 

On General, setting the booking page title, and booking page link for this new page you'll share with bookers.

On the Calendars & teams page, select the newly created calendar - that is where new bookings will be added. 

Under Times & availability > Language & Timezones section, make sure we are detecting the correct timezone from your newly created calendar. If all your bookers will be in the same timezone as you for the event, uncheck "Automatically detect booker timezone."

You'll also want to do some customization of your availability under Times & Availability, like:

You can also customize the confirmation and reminder emails related to bookings made on this special booking page. 

When you're ready, make sure the booking page is online and ready for bookings. New bookings will go into your newly created calendar in the timezone of that location.

Managing your schedule for regular travel between time zones

If your travel requires you to regularly be in different time zones taking bookings and you want just one booking link, you'll want to use our  Custom Availability feature. This will allow you to set your working hours across time zones, all on the same linked calendar. 

To first set this up, navigate to Times & Availability > Language & Timezones, and confirm is automatically detecting the timezone from your linked calendar, and that the detected timezone is correct for your home location. 

Under Times & availability, select Custom Availability and set working hours to accommodate all the timezones you'll be taking bookings in

For example, travelling between Europe and the United States, make sure your starting hours cover Europe hours and your ending hours cover US hours. 

Select a Custom Availability key phrase you'll use to signal to you're available for bookings. 

Finally, add events on our linked Google or Outlook Calendar at the times you will available in each timezone. 

At the beginning of the week you are available 8am – 5pm in New York, but at the end of the week you'll be in London and available from 9am - 5pm (which equates to 4am - 12pm in New York, you'll setup Custom Availability slots for each location.

Come back into settings and refresh your browser to see the times populate. 

When you travel between time zones, your linked calendar timezone updates automatically. So the Custom Availability times shift - and make perfect sense in the correct timezone.

Managing team members in different time zones

You can allow your team members across multiple time zones to take bookings on the same booking page, using Custom Availability.
