Booking with approval mode

In Booking with approval mode, you get to review and approve each booking request before it is scheduled. See a demo

To set Booking with approval mode, go to Setup -> click your Booking page -> Scheduling options section. If your Booking page is associated with Event types, the Scheduling options section will be set at the Event type level.

When you select Booking with approval mode, you set the number of times your Customers must suggest. The more times you ask your Customers to suggest, the more flexibility you will have when you pick the final time. Once a Customer submits his booking, you are notified to review the suggested times and approve the booking request. Booking with approval mode works in 15-minute increments. If you need shorter increments, Automatic booking works in 5-minute increments.

Booking with approval mode is available in all plans. It differs from Automatic booking mode, where scheduling happens automatically.

Note: When a Customer selects a few times on your Booking page, these requested times will not block your availability yet, since they have not been scheduled. Only when you schedule the time will it become busy time and block your availability during that time slot.

Booking with approval mode gives you the control over the time that is selected. It is good to use this mode in the following cases:

  • When there is a high degree of variability in your schedule
  • When you want to approve each request before it is scheduled
  • When you don't have many meeting requests
  • When you have a high degree of variability in the types of meeting requests
