Block time in Online Appointments

Block out a specific time, date, or date range on your calendar so that time is not available for your customers to book.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Scroll down to Websites + Marketing and select Manage next to your site.
  3. In your Dashboard, select Appointments, and then Calendar.
  4. Select Block Time.
    OLA Block Time button highlighted
  5. Add an optional Title to the block of time for your personal reference. This title will not be visible to your customers.
  6. Set the Start and End time that you want to block. Block off any amount of time including entire days and even multiple days in a row.
  7. (Optional) To choose how often you’d like the blocked time to repeat, select Repeat.
    • Choose how frequently the blocked time will repeat (Day, Week or Month), and then select specific day(s) of the week or month.
    • For Example:
      Let's say that you need to block time on the first Friday of the month, but only every three months.
      Repeat block time interval - months example
    • Or maybe you need to carve out specific days of the week every other week.
      Repeat block time interval - weeks example
    • After you've selected the repeating interval that works for you and your business, choose when you'd like the repeating blocked time to end.
      Repeat block time interval - Recurrence ends
  8. Select Block.

The blocked time will now appear on your Online Appointments calendar and prevent your customer from booking during that time.
