Custom date range control for Meetings links

I am interested in setting custom availability in the meetings tool, specifically when it comes to customers setting meetings with us at special events.  These events would not be part of our usual default availability and currently custom availability appears to be limited to the current week.  It would be ideal to select Friday January 6th to Sunday January 8th for example, in order for customers to forecast out and select meeting times with us for a future event.

I'm very excited to announce that Meetings now supports the ability for paid users to choose a custom date range for their availability to show. To set this up, edit a link > Configuration > Advanced Settings > at the end of the `When a meeting can be scheduled` drop down list after the weeks based options is a `Custom date range` option.

If you would like to see this functionality expanded upon in another way (I've seen some comments here about adding a "this week" option), please file a new ideas post so we can gauge customer interest!

Like many other contributors on this thread, I'd love to have the ability to create Meetings links for specific events like a several-days-long trade show or conference so that leads can book time on those dates only.

 

I want to maintain an open schedule for meetings before that trade show or conference for non-conference-related meetings.

 

Thanks!

@sam_cibelli I have been informed quite some time ago that we are now able to do this.

@sam_cibelli - here are the instructions from Hubspot:

 

To set this up, edit a link > Configuration > Advanced Settings > at the end of the `When a meeting can be scheduled` drop down list after the weeks based options is a `Custom date range` option.

@hroberts Thanks for that new feature! But one question: Now I can select WHEN someone can book a meeting in advance (certain no. of week or the custom range functionality). Thats good! But how can I configure the calendar in a way, that someone can only book a meeting in my calendar for e.g. just Sept. 12th and Sept. 13th on the DMEXCO fair. All other dates should not be available in the calendar.

Hey @ChristianRieck! If you use the custom availability option, all other dates not included in that selection will be blocked off there Smiley Happy

100% agree.

 

I may have to move back to Calendly if this is not added soon

Hey @Andrew-Dreamit! Check out the idea status Smiley Wink This functionality was delivered in July. If you have another request, please feel free to file a new idea!

Thanks but that is not quite what I was looking for. 

 
If I want the meeting link to be active for 2 weeks but to be available all of Monday in week 1 but only noon-5pm on Monday in week 2, this won't let me do it. I would have to create 2 separate meetings, one for week 1 and the other for week 2. 
 
(btw, the ability to 'clone' an existing meeting - create a copy with all the same settings, modify it slightly, and save would be *very* helpful)

Thanks for clarifying! I'm going to recommend you file a separate idea for that, as it would require quite a big change to how our meetings availability currently works, since day of week availability is currently for one week only. You are not the first person to request cloning ability! I'd recommend upvoting this post https://community.hubspot.com/t5/HubSpot-Ideas/Clone-Meeting-Links/idi-p/219229.
