I have connected my calendar and my booking page and 1:1 don't show when I am available. What's happening?

Your booking page and 1:1 links work hand-in-hand with your connected calendar to only offer time slots where you're not already busy, which will prevent double-bookings on your calendar. If your participants are unable to see available times in the booking page or 1:1 pages, it is likely because you have events on your calendar at the same times that are marked as 'free' and not 'busy'.

Check in your connected calendar to make sure that any events during the slots you are offering are marked as 'free' and not 'busy'. Alternatively, you could delete those conflicting events from your calendar, if appropriate.
