You can customize your booking window time to allow guests to book only within a time frame.
Note: The booking window time is not fixed. It is rolling and will be shifting as dates pass by.
The default booking window is set as 1 day from now to 14 days from now.
Assume today is April 15th, the booking window time means that:
- the earliest available time slot that a guest can book with you is 24 hours from now (April 15th), and can only book time slots showing on April 16th. In this way you won't get "surprised" bookings on the same day of the time slots.
- the last available time slot that a guest can book with you is 14 days from now (April 15) or on April 29th. In other words, if you have time slots on April 30th, it won't be showing on your calendar because your booking window end time is set to end on April 29th.
However, you can edit your booking window based on your needs. For example, if you want to allow guests to book on the same day, then you can adjust the booking window start time to 2 hours before the occurrence of the event.
To do that:
- On your booking page, click on the event type that you want to edit.
- Click on the button
Availability Settings, then click on Booking Window (please note that Booking Window will only appear if you already have added availability)
- Under Booking window start, click on the drop-down menu, then select the time that you want. In this case, if booking window start time is 6 hours from now. Then your guests can book the meeting with you as late as 6 hours before an event happens.
