YouCanBook.Me is a free service that integrates into your Norse Calendar and allows for many of the same features as Google Calendar. It can be used as an alternative for the regular appointment slots in Google Calendar.
These settings can be adjusted at anytime by repeating steps 8 – 17.
Note: If the information entered in the On Duty Events box is changed (i.e. from ‘Office Hours’ to ‘Tutoring Session’), the previous appointments will no longer be available for booking. Thus, you cannot have two different appointments available at the same time (i.e. Office Hours on Monday, Tutoring on Tuesday).
These instructions have been gathered from Jack Dougherty at Trinity College, Hartford CT. You can find his instructions (complete with images) by visiting his site. The information has been simplified and adjusted for the Luther community.
Once you have shared your YouCanBook.Me link (Ex: http://helpdesk.youcanbook.me/), users will be able to see and book in the slots that you have designated. Users do not need to have a Google or Norse Mail account in order to book appointments. Once booked, appointments will show up in your Google Calendar automatically.
If you wish to book multiple appointments at the same time (i.e. group tutorial sessions, etc), it is possible to do with the Units Per Slot feature.
Example: A professor needs to invite 20 students to attend tutorials in groups of 4. She simply creates one of our calendars with 5 times marked as available and sets the units per slot to 4. As soon as a particular slot gets booked up, that time gets grayed out on the grid.
YouCanBook.Me has additional features which you can find by exploring through the Dashboard and Settings.
