Set up your booking page in 5 steps
Follow these steps and have your booking page ready for the public in no time.
1. Link your Calendar
YouCanBook.me will read your linked calendar for free and busy times to display your correct availability. We need at least 1 calendar linked to your account to look for availability and create new events.
You can integrate as many calendar accounts as you need on the Integrations page.
Under Calendar & teams make sure we are checking the correct calendar on your desired calendar account. Click Edit to change the calendar.
Select the calendars you would like YouCanBook.me to search for availability - and then which calendar it should write new events to. Selecting more than one calendar will impact your monthly subscription price and may impact the availability shown on your booking page.
2. Choose your booking page link
When you initially set up a booking page, the system will suggest a booking page link for it. You can edit it by going to your Dashboard, clicking Edit settings on your booking page, and editing it under General.
3. Set your Availability
Under the Times & availability select Repeating availability and edit your working hours. These are the general times you are available to be booked from week to week. YouCanBook.me will display these times as available for booking every week, but will automatically block out times you already have meetings or events on your linked calendar.
You can also set up a lunch break that occurs every day, or set a fixed start and end date if you only are available for a specific range of dates.
4. Set your meeting duration
On the Times & Availability > Duration & display section, you will set how long your bookings will be. Set your Grid display first - this will be the increments or blocks of time displayed on your booking page. The minimum increment is 10 minutes. The booking duration can be any multiple of your grid display. By default, these are set to 60 minutes. The duration of your bookings is dependent on your grid display.
5. Check the timezone for your booking page
YouCanBook.me will automatically detect the timezone of your booking page from your linked calendar. If this timezone is wrong, you can edit the settings in your own calendar account settings, or uncheck the box Automatically detect time zone from my calendar and select the correct timezone from the dropdown box.
You will also want to decide if you want to automatically detect the timezone of your booker. If all of your bookers are in the same timezone as you, you can uncheck the box Automatically detect booker timezone, and everyone will view your availability in the same timezone of your booking page.
