Refining Your Scheduler Availability

The create/edit scheduler interface lets you set one availability window each day: If you need more flexibility, here is a technique that will allow you to
  • Block time on your scheduler without blocking that time for internal scheduling
  • Setup multiple availability windows in a single day
  • Set your availability on-the-fly directly from your calendar
  1. Create a new calendar. In one of your Microsoft of Google Accounts, create a new calendar and name it something like “scheduler block.”
    Scheduler Block calendar added to Google Calendar Account
    “Scheduler Block” calendar added to Google account.
  2. Add the new calendar to your scheduler. Edit your scheduler and add the calendar to the list of other calendars to check:
    Add scheduler block calendar to other calendars
    “Scheduler Block” calendar listed in other calendars to check for the scheduler.
  3. Manage your availability directly from your calendar. You can now block off time on your scheduler without blocking off your real calendar simply by adding a busy event to the  calendar:

    Slots filled with gold events are blocked on the scheduler but not in the user’s primary calendar seen by internal colleagues
