Availability and scheduling limits by appointment type

Squarespace Scheduling allows you to create groups of appointment types that have their own individual settings for availability and scheduling limits, even though the different groups are on the same calendar.

We've merged the Acuity Scheduling Help Center with the Squarespace Help Center. This guide applies to both versions of Scheduling.

Create groups of appointment types

To create groups of appointment types:

  1. In Scheduling, click Availability.
  2. Near the bottom of the page, click Set different hours for certain Appointment Types…
  3. Check the boxes next to the appointment types that you want to put into one group, then click Save Appointment Types.
Tip: If this is the first group you have created, the appointments you checked will be turned into a group called Group 2. Those you didn’t check will be turned into another group, called Group 1.
  1. Set your availability.
  2. Click Client Scheduling Limits and enter your scheduling limits.
  3. Click Save Limits, then click the X at the top right.

Note: If you have multiple groups of appointment types available at the same time on a single calendar, once a client schedules an appointment in a time slot, only other appointments from the same group will be available for that time slot.

Edit groups of appointment types

To add or remove appointment types from an appointment group:

  1. In Scheduling, click Availability.
  2. Locate the appropriate appointment group, then click Edit Group.
  3. Ensure only the checkboxes next to the appointment types that you want in the group are checked.
  4. Click Save Changes.

To move an appointment from one group to another:

  1. In Scheduling, click Availability.
  2. Locate the group the appointment type is currently in, then click the gear icon beside the appointment type's name.
  3. Use the drop-down menu to select the group you want to move the appointment type to or click Create New Group to create a new group.

Classes and groups of appointment types

Classes are always automatically placed in Group 1. You can add other appointment types to the group at any time. Because classes are offered at times that you manually choose, they aren’t affected by Group 1’s availability settings. However, they're governed by Group 1’s scheduling limits.
