Create a Personal Event on Your Square Appointments Calendar

Personal Events in Square Appointments are designed to give you flexibility to block off a period of time to show unavailability, to create a personal event, or to create a recurring scheduled event.  When your customers view your online booking page, they will not be able to see your personal events. They’re just for you to see! Customers will only see available booking times.

Create a Personal Event From the Appointments App

To block off time for a personal event from the Appointments app:

  1. From the calendar view, tap + > Create Personal Event.
  2. Add an event title (e.g., busy, meeting, available). Block Time should automatically be enabled. If it’s not, simple toggle on to remove online booking availability.
  3. Enter the date, time, and duration.
  4. Tap Save.

Note: If the event was originally created in a synced personal calendar, all edits and updates must be added in the original calendar.
