Pooled availability combines availability from multiple MeetMe pages into a single booking calendar and enables two important scenarios:
- Automatic member assignment: Customers select a time and a member is automatically assigned – Either randomly or according to a set priority. Automatic assignment of members comes in handy when members are equally capable and the selection of time is more important than the selection of a member. Automatic assignment is not limited to members only, it can be used with resources, locations or any other selection criteria.
- Find member by time: Customers select a time from a combined calendar and see all members that are available at that time. Find by time comes in handy when there are many members or when members are equally capable and the selection of time is more important than the selection of a member. Find by time is not limited to members only, it can be used with resources, locations or any other selection criteria. Learn more about find member by time
Pooled availability can be used in multi-user and single user modes. To use pooled availability in multi-user mode you will need to purchase user licenses for the Enterprise plan. If you want to use pooled availability in single user mode you will need to purchase the Enterprise plan with one user license and then add MeetMe pages for users.
Improved handling of variable booking duration
When customers are allowed to choose a duration there will now be a duration pop up on the MeetMe page - Just like there is a time zone popup. The reason is that the selection of a duration is an important step that is sometimes overlooked by the customer. Once the selection of the duration is done with a popup, we can rest assured that it will not be overlooked by the customer.
