Ensure clients can only book time with you when you're available. 

For full control over your schedule and when clients can book with you, set your hours for each calendar. You can have the same hours every day, or choose specific times for each day. 

Note: The instructions below include links to Acuity settings separated by the kind of account you use to log into Acuity. Which kind of account do I have?

To set specific hours for groups of availability types, visit Availability and scheduling limits by appointment type

Set regular weekly hours

If the calendar stays the same from week to week, set regular weekly hours:

  1. Open the Availability panel: I log in with an Acuity account | I log in with a Squarespace account
  2. If you have more than one calendar, click Edit Availability/Limits on one of them.
  3. Leave This service group has regular hours every week checked.
  4. Enter your hours in the fields for each day of the week. For help formatting these hours, review Formatting hours.
  5. Click Save regular hours.

Set different hours for each day

If the calendar has different hours every day, first remove the regular weekly hours:

  1. Open the Availability panel: I log in with an Acuity account | I log in with a Squarespace account
  2. If you have more than one calendar, click Edit Availability/Limits on one of them.
  3. Uncheck This service group has regular hours every week.
  4. Click Save, switch to specific days.

Then use the calendar that appears below to add override hours for specific days. Any days left blank won't be bookable by clients:

  1. Click a day on the calendar.
  2. Enter your hours for that day, then click Set Hours. For help formatting these hours, see Formatting hours.
  3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 until your schedule is complete.

Formatting hours

When entering hours on your calendar, you can set a range of time you’re available, list specific start times, or combine the two methods. Use the table below for help formatting hours.
