The due to my support in the Google Help Forum I’ve learned quite a bit about fellow educator’s needs. Recently an educator asked, “Can I keep Appointment Slots Confidential”. The concern was if they share Google Calendar Appointment Slots publicly will other parents see when a parent signs up for a meeting. The teacher became excited about using appointment slots after learning the appointments remain private between the appointment setter and teacher.
Once a parent chooses an appointment slot and fills in their details the slot disappears from the public calendar. The appointment is then scheduled on the parents personal Google Calendar as an event. Bonus is the teacher can view who registered for which appointment slot on the appointment slot calendar. One more timesaving tool provided by Google for Educators to use.
