Blocking times with Setster, Google Calendar, Outlook and iCal

Pro version users of Setster can block their unavailable times when using third party calendars like Outlook, Google Calendar and iCal by using a published calendar. So, if you make a calendar entry in Outlook on your desktop for example; it will block that time from being available to your clients in Setster.

Here’s how it works. Every time an appointment is set up, an email is sent to both the service provider and the client that includes an .ICS file. ICS stands for Internet Calendar Standard. The ICS file is used for exchanging calendar information between calendar programs the run on your PC and online.

When an appointment is made, an email is sent to both the service provider and the user. The email includes all the information about the appointment and an ICS file that again, has all the appointment information. The ICS file is automatically imported to your calendar application where the appointment is available to view.

Once you publish your calendar, Setster is able to view and subscribe to the published calendars updates, which will let us know your available/unavailable times and blocks or opens times for your clients.

You must have a Pro Version subscription to use this option.  The following blogs provide specific insutuctions for each Google, Outlook and iCal calendars.
