Navigate to the Calendar page, and if calendar integration is already set up, Busy times should populate across your calendar in a plum color. If not, select the Subscriptions tab at the top of the screen and follow the instructions to set up your integration with Outlook Exchange or Google.
Once this is setup, busy times should block off your schedule to prevent double booking. For more questions about Calendar Integration and to ensure that your institution is set up for this please speak with your Consultant or Business Analyst.

Choose a Service Category (if applicable) > choose a specific service > choose a location (only locations with that service applied will populate) > choose advisor(s) (there are two settings here that could change who will show up on this list on the Service settings -- one to allow student to see only their assigned advisor, or the student could see any advisor at that location that has this service available) all open times for the week > choose a day that works > choose a time that works.
Now the appointment confirmation page should display. On this page, confirm the location, service, and user. On the right side, choose the options to send an email and text reminder -- the student email address and student cell phone number (if applicable) will populate.
