Need to set yourself or another staff member as unavailable during a set time on the online scheduling menu? Set up a blocked off time.
Setting a blocked off time will remove you or another staff member from availability on the online scheduling menu for a set time period. You can set blocked off times for only yourself or for additional staff. This is great for any business that has multiple staff members, that would like to add a blocked off time for more than one of those staff members for a time slot.
Example: If you want to have a team meeting and need to block yours and other staff members calendars in Thryv for that meeting, you only need to create 1 blocked off time, and select the staff members that should be in the meeting. The staff members will see the blocked off time on their calendar.
Only staff roles, collaborators, managers, and admins can set blocked off times for other staff members.
How to set up a blocked off time
Navigate to Calendar View
- Select Schedule New
- Select Blocked off time
Enter details for blocked off time
- Start time
- End time
- Staff members (this field will pre-populate based on which staff member is currently logged in)
An individual block will appear on each staff member's calendar.
Quickly add Blocked Off Time to your own calendar
To quickly add a blocked off time for only your own calendar > Navigate to calendar view, highlight the time slots you'd like to block, select blocked off time.
