The Google Calendar app offers a range of advanced features to customize scheduling according to your business needs. Whether you want to book multiple appointments per time slot or send confirmation emails to customers, the advanced settings section has got you covered.

Appointment Padding

Appointment padding provides you with some time between each appointment to relax before moving on to the next customer. You can even choose to display the padding in a separate color on your calendar, making it easy to visualize your schedule.

To activate appointment padding, simply click on any of the colored squares next to the padding time. Also, make sure to set your limitation to "Unlimited" and ensure the padding time is equal to your appointment frequency or duration. An incorrect setup will trigger a pop-up message when you try to save.

Booking Multiple Services

If you have services activated in your Google Calendar app, you can also enable the multiple services feature. This allows SAS agents to schedule multiple services simultaneously. For instance, if you have 5 doctors available for daily appointments, you can specify 5 as the number of appointments per slot. The operators will then be able to schedule 5 patients based on your selected frequency or service.

To activate this feature, toggle the Multiple Bookings option and choose the number of bookings that can be scheduled within a single time slot from the dropdown list.

With multiple services enabled, operators can check off the relevant services during scheduling, and the combined length of time for the appointment will be blocked.

Cancellation Limits

If your scheduling policy restricts cancellations within a specific timeframe before the appointment, you can set a cancellation limit. This will prevent operators from canceling appointments on your calendar if they fall within the set limit.

First, select minutes, hours, or days from the drop-down list. Then, enter a number indicating the time period before which cancellations will not be allowed.

Check for Conflicts

If you have multiple calendar layers configured in your Google Calendar, the "Check for Conflicts" feature becomes handy. Enabling this feature allows the system to check for conflicting appointment slots scheduled in your other calendar layers, ensuring that appointments do not overlap.

Save Configuration

Once you have set up the advanced settings section, click the blue Save button located at the bottom left corner of the Google Calendar app. Your configuration will be saved, and you can now integrate Google Calendar into your script.

In the Google Calendar script block of your choice, go to the Options tab, and select your configuration from the Google Calendar Layer drop-down list.

Once done, click Save. If you were editing an existing script block, you're all set. Otherwise, you will need to create the rest of your script blocks, sections, and the script itself. For detailed instructions, refer to the relevant articles on script blocks, script sections, and script creation.

Now you have the knowledge to make the most of the advanced settings in the Google Calendar integration. Enhance your scheduling capabilities and streamline your business operations with these powerful features.
