    Invites created while composing emails

    These are Meeting Scheduler invites you can generate while composing the email which is unique for that email and recipient. The meeting availability for these invites can be customized per email / per recipient. For example, “let’s meet for a coffee”, “here is my availability for this phone call”, “I’m in the city only in afternoons so let’s meet for dinner”, etc.

    You cannot send this invite to different people. The instructions are here.

    Here is a short video explaining how this works: Unique Invites

    “Book Me” links

    You can also configure the “book me” link. This link is not unique. You can add this link to your LinkedIn profile or your website. This is your “public” availability. Settings in “book me” link will not affect invite created while composing emails – this is your “public” availability.

    Here are short instructions on how to set up “Book me” link: Setup Book Me link.

    The settings you specify for “book me” link has no influence on your unique invites (the one you create per email).

    Once someone has already reserved a slot, this would automatically be reserved and marked as busy.

For both types, make sure that your busy schedule are marked as busy in your main Google calendar: marked busy in Google Calendar
