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.

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.

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

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

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!

I agree and might determine why I keep or remove the Sales Pro tool.

Ability to select a date range when creating a meeting link. Presently, you only can choose 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks out etc.. all that does is give a big option for people to choose from.  But, if you are targeting a specific week or weeks to book meetings (example, week commencing 24 April and W/c 8 May) - it would be great to have the abilty to ONLY provide those options, and thereby setup the meeting link that either has one date range ( 24 - 28 April), or even better abiltiy to setup mulitiple date ranges: (24-28 April, and 8-12 May all in the same meeting link.

This would be really helpful if we could have this functionality for scheduling full days of meetings on specific dates in the future.

This needs to be created. I cannot currently use the calendar as I am in different cities each week.  Please developers create.  Thanks!

This feature would be incredibly helpful.  For anyone that travels to conferences and wants to make only specific days available this suggestion is right on point.  Think in terms of the same process for selecting days to check-in/out on a hotel website.  I would envision the same sort of UI and then pick times.   Super simple design would add so much flexibility to the tool.

It would be awesome to have the ability in meetings to define a specific date range for a meeting link. The use case I have for this now would be to set meetings up during a conference in-person only on the dates that the conference is running and at specific times during the conference.

I agree - This would be a great feature for all of us concerence / exhibition organisers

I agree - being able to specify a date range for meetings would be ideal for conference and event situations where we want prospects and customers to schedule a meeting with us within on certain dates and within a certain schedule only.

Voted. For context, the main value of date controls for us is around convention meetings. We want to let attendees book meetings with our sales team during a specific week

I concur, very very neat if you're doing a lot of conferences. Please let me know asap when there is a beta available.

I agree and we also need the ability to set the meeting range more than 11 weeks. This is deal breaker for us.

I agree. I am trying to set up meetings with my sales team who are attending an event in a fortnight's time. This is painful.

AlexChered

Need this. We are in the software services outsourcing industry, and I and other sales team members often go on a 'roadshow' - visiting one or multiple cities in specific dates. Being able to limit dates for these specific ones is really crucial (TBH I bought a paid Sales subscription as I thought there is one).

+1 here as well - what's the status? ETA?

This is a very important feature that would be a huge added value.

I concur.  This is a welcomed feature of a product that I use daily.  It is such a great tool and timesaver.

Our sales team will often visit a specific city or region for one/two days and want to fit as many meetings as they can in that amount of time. It is beneficial for them to send out an email with a meeting link so that contacts book their meetings on that sales rep's calendar. 

 

However, there is not an option to select a specific date so that contacts are required to schedule a meeting on that day in the future.

 

For example, John Smith is visiting Houston on January 17 and wants to send his contacts in that area a meeting invite ONLY FOR THAT DAY. Why is that not an option?
