Depending on the appointment duration (the minimum duration is 15 min), available time slots are displayed in the calendar for your clients. Time slots do not overlap and are dedicated for one-time use, meaning that one time slot is dedicated to one client.
For example, if you sell 30 min online consultations and your working hours are 9-5, the client will be able to choose from the following time slots:
11:00–11:30, 11:30–12:00, etc.
Your specified working hours are set based on the timezone of your device. When it comes to your clients, available time slots are displayed based on their timezone.
So, for example, if you're located in London and have a free time slot on Feb 1, 10 AM (UTC), your potential client from Chicago will see it available on Feb 1, 4 AM (UTC-6).
