Event types are a powerful tool to standardize the meeting types that will be offered on different Booking pages. We recommend associating your Booking page with at least one Event type. This enables better modeling of advanced scheduling scenarios (for example, multi-User scenarios using Pooled availability) and provides a better scheduling experience for your Customers.
When you associate Event types with Booking pages, some of your scheduling settings are related to the Event type and some are related to the Booking page.
The table below shows the settings that are related to each:
|Event type||Booking page|
|Scheduling options||Associated calendars|
|Time slot settings||Recurring availability|
|Customer notifications||Date-specific availability|
|Booking form||Location settings|
|Payment and cancel/reschedule policy||User notifications|
NoteIf you prefer that the Booking form section and Customer notifications section are related to the Booking page, even when you are using Event types, you can change this in the Event type sections.
To associate Event types with a Booking page, you must have permission to edit the Event types section of the Booking page.
