5 features you probably didn't know about Koalendar
Some features of Koalendar are not obvious, so here's a short article showing you a few things you might have missed:
1. Your link displaying all your active booking pages
On your dashboard, click on the link below your account's name to open public listing page.
2. Switch to mobile preview
On your booking page editor, click on "Desktop Preview" above the current preview to switch to mobile preview.
3. Pre-fill the booking fields for your invitees
Make it faster for your invitees to book a meeting with you by pre-filling their name and emails for them.
Click on Share on one of your booking page then "Prefill" on the top right:
(Here I've pre-filled the name as "Google" and email as "firstname.lastname@example.org")
Then copy your link and share it with your invitees.
After selecting a date and time on your scheduling page, instead of having the booking fields being empty, they will now automatically be filled with the values you've provided.
4. Delete multiple bookings at once
To gain some time when managing your bookings, select all the bookings you want to delete by clicking at the top left.
Once they're all selected, click on the red button "Delete all selected".
5. Block time slots, days, or weeks in 20 seconds
If you've linked at least one Google Calendar with Koalendar (this is usually by default), any "busy" event that appear on the linked Google Calendars will be taken into account when showing your availability on your Koalendar booking page. This way, you won't be double-booked.
So you can take advantage of this for making yourself unavailable when you don't want to accept new bookings.
Open Google Calendar, and create a new Out of Office event:
You will now be unavailable for appointments on all those selected days.
You can also create a normal Google event, but make sure to have its visibility setting set as "Busy":
Bonus: Customise your booking page link
Make your booking page link short & easy to remember, so you can share your link with ease.
To do so, open your booking page editor, and click "Show advanced configuration" in the first section:
Once updated, click the ✅ next to your new link to confirm.
