Creating Appointment Slots in Google Calendar

What Are Appointment Slots?

Appointment Slots are times that you can create in your Google calendar to simplify people booking time with you. It can be especially useful in setting up meetings with outside parties. You set up certain availability and then people can sign up for a time to meet with you within those specific time periods in your Google calendar.



  1. Open Google Calendar

  2. Click Create

  3. Find and select the Appointment Slots Tab (Fig. 1)

  4. Edit the time frame or duration limit of each Appointment Slots

    1. We recommend increasing your time duration by an additional ten or fifteen minutes to prevent appointments from running over and providing you an opportunity to stretch, breathe, or respond to urgent matters
  5. Choose a title for your appointment slots

  6. Select more options to set a time zone if there is the possibility that you will share this link with others in different time zones

  7. Click Save to create your Appointment Slots

  8. Upon hitting save you will be taken to a new page, which should display your calendar and your new Appointment Slots

    1. While you can see your full calendar, others will not be able to do so. They will only see the appointment slots and the remainder of your Google calendar will be blank

  9. Share the link that was generated in the url bar with people to enable them to sign up for your available meeting time

Please note, you can always grab this link again by clicking on the box grid icon from your calendar (Fig. 2)  and reopening the URL (Fig. 3)
