Connect your Calendar with your 24sessions availability page
To prevent double bookings, connect your Google, Office365 or Outlook.com calendar* to synchronize it with your 24sessions account:
First enable the Calendar Integration addon from ‘Addons’ → ‘Market’
Now, in your availability page, click on the calendar you want to connect, select your account and allow the calendar to be synced with 24sessions availability.
You will then be redirected to a page where you will be asked to:
- Check calendar for conflicts: click the options you want 24sessions to check for conflicts.
- Add new events to calendar: click to add all new events scheduled by 24sessions to your connected calendar.
Save your changes. You can always edit your calendar settings or disconnect and reconnect it via ‘Manage settings’ and ‘Disconnect’.
Customize your availability
24sessions availability section works with blocked times. That means that the times you choose to block will be the times where you will be shown as not available in your calendar.
There are some already blocked times in ‘Company’ when you first create a 24sessions account. Bare in mind that settings under ‘Company’ affect all other availability pages. If you are the only user of your 24sessions account, it is recommended to delete the blocked items from ‘Company’ and set your availability only in your ‘Me’ section.
You can edit your availability two ways:
- Go directly in your availability box → drag and drop.
- Pick day and time at the top of the availability box to block it. If you want to set your availability from 23:59 to 00:01 you need to edit two times. For example, if you want to block times from 19:00 pm to 8:00 am next day you have to block:
- 19:00 - 23:59
- 00:01 - 08:00
You can repeat the availability daily, weekly, monthly or yearly for every slot by clicking on it. This is where you can also remove a blocked slot.
Remove blocked slots in bulk
You can remove blocked slots in bulk, depending on their repeat interval. If a slot is 'blocked daily' and you remove it, it will be deleted from all coming days. For example, if you have blocked it weekly on Thursday and you remove it, it will be deleted for all coming Thursdays and so on.
The default blocked company availability is blocked weekly so you would have to remove the blocked slots one by one (that would be 5 times if you want to remove the weekdays).
