Google Calendar: Appointment Slots

Before you start...

One exciting feature of Google Calendar is Appointment Slots. This feature allows you to block out sections of your calender for individuals to sign up for appointments. 

While there are many ways to utilize this feature, here are some common users based upon your role at the University:

Faculty

You can set your available office hours in Google Calendar with a recurring appointment slot and then share the URL for the appointment page with your students. This way, students can quickly pick and reserve a time to meet with you.
