How YouCanBook.me works with your calendar
Youcanbook.me eliminates the back and forth of booking appointments, saving you time to do the important things.
Once your calendar is integrated with your Youcanbook.me account, we read the free and busy times, blocking out times that you're not available. Your booker visits your link, chooses a time, and that event is created directly in your calendar.
You can manage all your events scheduled by Youcanbook.me like your other calendar events. To reschedule an event, drag and drop it on your calendar. Cancel an event by deleting it from your calendar. Block out time or days you're not available by putting a busy event in your calendar. Manage your availability directly in your linked calendar, through a browser on your desktop or with your mobile device.
YouCanBook.me integrates with Google, iCloud and Microsoft Office 365 calendar accounts. Integrate your calendar and then decide which calendars on that account you want to link to your profile. To link to more than one calendar, you'll need to upgrade to a paid plan.
Because Youcanbook.me integrates with your existing cloud-based calendar, all of the data is stored on your calendar account, and is under your control.
How do I get started?
How do I change the calendar I'm linking to?
Follow the instructions on this page.
I don't see the calendar I want to link to on the Calendar & Teams page.
If you realize that the calendar you want to use is associated with another Google or Apple account, you have several options. You can either share that calendar with the account that is linked to your YCBM, or you can change the account altogether and integrate with a different calendar account. You can read about how to change the integrated calendar account here.
What's the difference between linking more than one calendar and integrating more than one calendar account?
One calendar account can hold any number of calendars. They can be your own (e.g In Google Calendar they are listed under My Calendars). Or they can be shared with you (e.g in Google Calendar they are listed under Other Calendars). As long as the shared calendars are shared at the level of 'make changes to events', then YCBM will be able to see them and add appointments to them.
So, if you are trying to work with a colleague's calendar, for example, they will need to share their calendar with the correct permissions for it to work. Or, you can integrate a completely separate calendar account, with all of its own and shared calendars. This might be a better option for individuals who don't want to share their calendars. Find out more about working with multiple calendars.
Note: The pricing is based on the number of calendars you link to under the Calendar & Teams page. You can integrate with as many calendar accounts as you need. But the price is based on the number of calendars we are looking at for availability.
