Define Blocks of Availability - Online Catholic Speaker

Booking Duration

This is where you set up your appointments through “blocks” of time.

Customer defined blocks means the host can decide how many consecutive blocks (how long) they want to book you for.

Fixed blocks means there is only one choice in how you are booked.


  1. A speaker who is flexible in the amount of time they are booked and wants to charge $15 per 15 minutes of time, would choose Customer defined blocks of 15 minutes.  A host could then sign up for a 45 minute time slot and be charged $45.  
  2. A speaker may want to be booked by the hour and for only an hour.  They charge $50/hour.  They would select Fixed blocks of 1 hour

Requires confirmation? means that you have the option to require your approval before a speaking event is booked.
