Facing conflicts in meetings between your personal calendar and Bookings with me appointments? Don't worry. Consider following the steps in this article and you are all set!

What is the reason?

Sometimes, the Bookings with me page displays users as available even when their calendar is already booked for the day. The reason behind this is, when you create an all-day event, your status defaults to Free. So, Bookings with me consider you as available since you are free. 

Troubleshooting the issue

To check if you are having any conflicts in your meetings, follow the steps below. 

Access your calendar page

  1. Go to

  2. Check your appointments. If you see any meetings are coinciding like the image below, proceed to the next step.

Change how an appointment, meeting, or event shows on your calendar

  3. Change the status to Busy and your slots on Bookings with me for that day will disappear.

    Tip: When you create a new meeting/appointment by selecting specific time range, your status defaults to Busy, so the slot will not show in Bookings with me.
