Setting up Appointments in Google Calendar

As the Semester winds down, and you get more questions from students, my tip for today is to use Google Calendar to set up Office Hour Appointment slots. This is easily done in your Google Calendar.

The following video will walk you through the process.

If you still have questions on setting up or sharing appointment slots here is a link to Google Calendar appointment slots from the Google Help Center.

The important part of this is to not send a Google Calendar link, as if you are inviting someone to a meeting, but to click on the Block of appointments on your calendar and then click on “Go to appointment page for this calendar.”

Once you do that, you will be taken to the page showing the slots. Copy the URL address, and then paste it into an email or, for Office Hours, into a class announcement. And don’t worry, only the appointment block shows up when anyone else opens this link – they don’t see the rest of your calendar.

I hope this tip is one that helps you out. Have a great weekend, and thank you for reading the FLC.
