How do I create a 'blocked time' event on my calendar? I want to be unavailable for a certain period

You can set yourself as "unavailable", using the "blocked time" feature. A blocked time event means you're not available to be booked by customers; let's say you have another obligation, doctor's appointment, pick up the kids, etc. You can set a specific time as "blocked" by using the steps below:

Step 1:

Log in to your business account, and head to the Calendar page, then, click on the general area you'd like to "block" off.



Step 2:

On the next page, choose "Blocked Time", and complete the form by entering the title (note that this is a required field) selecting the options for which professional you'd like to block time for; choose the date/specific time, and if it's a repeating session or not. You may block the entire day by clicking the "All Day" slider. You may also add a "Block Time Description" on the right side. Click "Block Time" button at the bottom when done.



Step 3:

Remember the empty spot on the calendar before? Now, it's blocked!



Step 4:

Click on the blocked time event to see more details or remove it.


That's it! The blocked time event prevents anyone from booking a calendar event (class or appointment) during that session.

Note: Also, the blocked time does not show up on your calendar for clients to view - we don't want them seeing when specifically you're unavailable - they just can't book that specific slot. Only YOU and your BUSINESS can see your blocked time event.
