Google Calendar keeps getting better and better… recently GCalendar added color-coding of events, and now they’ve introduced appointment slots which allows you the flexibility to accept appointments.
Or as Google’s post put it:
Google Calendar has become indispensable for organizing my own time and sharing my schedule with friends and coworkers. But what about letting others know about my preferred availability? Likewise, when I look at my hairdresser’s online calendar, I wonder why I can’t just book the open slot instead of remembering to call during regular business hours. Now, with appointment slots in Google Calendar, any individual or business can manage appointment availability online 24/7.
First, you define appointment slots, and then the next step in the process is that someone with access to your calendar signs up for one of your appointment slots. Now you can schedule appointments with your friends, clubs you’ve joined and businesses can accept appointments.
