Blackout Dates are days that are blocked off in your Booking Calendar completely for all Appointment Types.
If you’re using Team booking, you’ll also have the option to apply blackout dates to individual team members.
Potential Use Cases
- Vacation days
- National holidays
- Any other days where you’re unavailable for appointments
Using Blackout Dates
To use blackout dates, set the toggle to on in the Settings tab. Then click Edit Settings.
Adding and Removing Days to the Blackout Dates
To add a blackout date, just click a day in the calendar. You’ll see it appear under the Selected Dates list. You can add as many dates as you’d like.
To remove a date, click on the red trash can to the right of the date. Or, click on the orange box on the calendar of the date you’d like to remove.
When you’re finished selecting dates, click the Save button to save your dates.
Picking Future Months or Years
To change to a different month or year, you can either use the left and right arrows.
Or, jump directly to a month or year by clicking on the month or year in the calendar header to open a selection menu.
Blocking Off Partial Days
At the moment we don’t have a solution to directly remove only part of the day. But, we do have two workarounds to help you achieve this.
Manually Book Each Time Slot
To block off part of the day, book the time slots that you’re unavailable.
Sync with Google Calendar
Available in the Plus, Pro, and Business Editions.
Or, you could sync all your Appointment Types with Google Calendar. You could create a new Google Calendar dedicated to blocking off vacation or reduced hour days.
Then you could have all your Appointment Types check that calendar for conflicts. So that your Booking Calendar can automatically block off the entire or partial day.
This can also help you block off multiple days, weeks, or even recurring days all at once.
