How can I use my calendar's busy time in ScheduleOnce?

When you connect your personal calendar account, ScheduleOnce is able to read any calendar in that account to see when you are already busy. You can tell ScheduleOnce to block any time when you're busy on your calendar. No one will be able to book with you when there is already an event on your calendar. These busy events are also factored into any buffers you set between ScheduleOnce events and busy time on your calendar. 

Different calendar integrations have different terminology for referring to busy time. For instance, the Google Calendar integration shows events as either Available or Busy. In comparison, Outlook and Office 365 have many more settings for showing an event's status, including Tentative, Out of Office, and more. The same setting that is 'Available' in Google Calendar is set to 'Free' in Office 365 and Outlook.

You can see your connected calendar account by going to Setup and opening the left sidebar. Then select Integrations -> Calendar integration. After you've connected your calendar, you can specify which calendar or calendars should be used for retrieving busy time.

Each Booking page can have its own calendar configuration, retrieving busy time and booking in whichever calendars you specify in Setup -> relevant Booking page -> Associated calendars. Your main booking calendar automatically retrieves busy time. You can also retrieve busy time from any other calendars in your connected account, so long as you select them within this section.
