Appointment Slots allow you to list available dates and times on a public calendar, so that current and prospective clients can request a scheduled session from you. 

 

If you are an Account Administrator, you can request that this feature be added to your account by contacting support@securevideo.com. Please include the name of the Account Service(s) that users can request an appointment for. If you have not yet created one, please include the information we will need to create one for you: name, description, payment required (if applicable), and scheduling duration.) 

 

This support article will go over the process for adding out of office slots to your calendar, which are exceptions to any appointment slots you have already added (or may add) in the future.
