While you are running your business and building a community of your own, it is tough to manage your time. It becomes even tougher when you have multiple calendars, schedules and offerings like classes and workshops where you have to make sure no two activities clash.

To ease your work, Exly has provided a tool where you can manage your schedule effectively.

Read on as we walk you through the steps of effectively and easily managing your availability.

Step 1: On the Creator Tool page, click on the Workflow Tools menu. From the drop down options, click on My Schedule.

Step 2: If you use google calendar too, it is suggested to sync it with Exly.

To do so, click on Manage Availability, then click on Allow Blocking From Google Calendar icon in the bottom right.

On the pop up, click Save to integrate google calendar with Exly.

From the screen that opens, click Proceed. It will redirect to a Sign In with Google page where you can choose the email ID whose calendar you want to connect.

Once your calendar has been connected you’ll get a pop up for enabling blocking. By doing so, any event on you calendar that wasn’t created by Exly will be then blocked. This includes events created by you or any other scheduling tool that you use. Toggle the Enable Blocking button to enable this feature

After a successful integration, you should be able to see any blocked events from your google calendar.

Step 3: You cannot take booking on time slots that are marked as blocked after syncing your google calendar.

However, you can free this slot to enable booking in that time.

To do so, select the time slot that you want to enable taking bookings for and click on Free this slot present in the bottom right of the card.

Step 4: You can also block new slots for yourself that will help you manage your schedule and take time for your personal events.

Click on Block A New Slot button on the top right of the screen.

A calendar will open where you can select the date for which you want to create a slot for.

Click on the date to select it, on the right side of the screen you’ll now see an option to select the start time and the end time of the event.

You can choose to book more than 1 slot on a day by clicking in Add Time

Click Done button in the bottom right of the screen. If you have any team members added, you can select if you want to book this slot for yourself or for your entire team.

Click Confirm and the selected slot will be booked.
