Delete available time slots

Important: When you delete an appointment schedule:

  • The appointment schedule is removed from your calendar.
  • Booked appointments stay on your calendar and the person’s calendar who booked the appointment.
  • Links to booking pages you shared no longer work.
  1. On a computer, open Google Calendar.
  2. Click the appointment schedule you want to delete.
  3. At the top right, in the appointment window, click Delete appointment schedule  .


  • To make changes to your appointment schedule, such as removing a time block, you need to edit the appointment. 
  • Booked appointments on your calendar remain unless you cancel them.

Cancel a booked appointment

Important: When you cancel a booked appointment:

  • The appointment is removed from your calendar.
  • A cancellation email is sent to the person who booked the appointment. 
  • The cancelled appointment time appears available on your booking page.
  1. On your computer, open the booked appointment on Google Calendar.
    • If you use a third-party calendar, you can cancel your appointment from your confirmation email. Or, you can RSVP “no” to a calendar invitation to cancel an appointment. 
  2. Click Cancel appointment.
  3. On the booking page that opens, click Cancel your appointment.
Tip: If you or the person who booked an appointment with you forwards the appointment confirmation email to someone, the recipient can cancel the booked appointment.
