Setting a minimum and maximum advance notice for bookings
Avoid last-minute bookings or appointments scheduled too far into the future by simply setting two limits: one for the minimum notice you need and the other for the maximum distance in the future that you want to be booked. This is a rolling setting based on when the booker views your availability. No time slots will be available to book outside of these limits.
This setting is found under Times & availability > Duration & display.
[If your account was created before May 2019, you will need to click Times & availability > Duration & display > Show additional display options.]
Your minimum booking notice will stop people from booking too close to the start of an appointment. The standard setting is 2 hours but you can increase this to prevent same day bookings.
Your maximum advance booking notice will stop people making bookings that occur too far in the future. The standard setting is 365 days but you can reduce this to keep people from booking more than a few weeks in advance.
Important: Your minimum and maximum notice settings can often be the cause of times not being available even when you have availability on your calendar. For example, if you set your min notice to 4 hours, anyone looking at your availability at 9am will not see any available times before 1pm. If you set your max notice to 4 weeks, your availability will not show past 4 weeks from the day you're viewing it.
