Allow Meeting start times to flexibly change with availability and selected durations

When setting custom availability from 11:30 - 2:30, with duration to of an hour. I would hope a recipient could choose options for 11:30, 11:45, 12, 12:15, 12:30 etc. However, because the meeting duration is an hour, the recipient can only choose 11:30, 12:30 and 1:30.

Is there a reason we don't display the in-between times (like noon or 1)?

There are other calendar tools, Calendly and Appointlet, that let you set the start time offsets. So you could display your available times in increments of 30 minutes. And then the available times will update accordingly if meetings are booked.

Hi all! I'm very pleased to announce that we now calculate available times to optimize booking opportunities for you! As part of the beta, we heard feedback from some of you that the increased flexibility hindered some use cases where you want meetings to still only be available at the top of the hour, etc. so we have also introduced a new setting, "Start time increment" under Configuration > Advanced settings. Thank you for your feedback!

Just make a checkbox of 0-55 in 5 minute increments.

 

If calendar time is available AND duration + buffer time is free is less does not equal booked time, allow recipient to book.

This feature is definitely needed. People need to be able to have flexible start times in their day and still be able to book meetings on 30 minute, 15 minute, 45 minute, and hour marks. Otherwise this is severely limiting.

I'd like to see this functionality as well as the ability to set increments other than 15 minutes. We run a sales operation that has more calls happening that 15 minutes increments.
