Sometimes we want to schedule appointments with a specific start time. This article outlines how to set that up.

I find it best to explain this by using a specific example. Here is the scenario. You offer your 30 minute "No Sweat Intro" appointment on Mondays at 3:00 pm, 4:00 pm, 5:00 pm.

Initially, we would think to create a block of availability from 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm in the platform. However, by doing that, you will allow any 15 minute increment to be booked for a total of 30 minutes. Meaning that a contact could book at 3:00 pm, 3:15 pm, 3:30 pm, 3:45 pm, as long as there were 30 minutes available. Since we want them to book on the hour, we need to set our availability to match that.

This screenshot shows that you need to set up the 30 minute blocks and always leave a gap between each appointment. If you wanted to book on the half hours (i.e. 3:00 pm & 3:30 pm), then change your appointment duration to 15 minutes in total length and set availability from 3:00 pm - 3:15 pm & 3:30 pm - 3:45 pm.
