Scheduling One-Time Events & Webinars

Leadmonk simplifies scheduling one-time events like webinars or conference appointments. You can control available booking times, ensuring attendees can only register for your designated date and time. Here are two options to achieve this:

Option 1: Specific Date Availability

Step 1: Create an Availability Profile

Create a new availability profile and name your profile as "Webinar" so that it's easy to identify later.

Step 2: Specify the Webinar Date and Time

In the "Specific Date availability" section of your availability profile, select the date and times that you want to schedule your Webinar. You can select the start and end times, as well as the time zone.

Step 3: Set Weekdays as Unavailable

To ensure that your Webinar is only available on the specified date and times, make sure to uncheck all weekdays as available days in the "Available times weekly" section. This will ensure that the Webinar is only available on the specific date you've chosen.

Step 4: Save Profile and Link it to Meeting Type

Once you've created your availability profile, save it and then link it to the event type relevant for your Webinar. Go to the "Meeting types" page, select the Webinar meeting type, and click on "Availability Preferences" tab. Select the "Webinar" profile that you just created from the dropdown menu.

That's it! Now, when someone goes to schedule a Webinar event, they'll only be able to select the specific date and time that you've set up in your availability profile.

Option 2: Date Range Availability

You can also assign availability profile with all available weekdays but you can show the availability only for specific date(s) as shown below in the event type customization i.e. by specifying the date range for the field "With in a date range". Here you can also default timezone of conference venue in the meeting type so that guests can see the availability only in that fixed timezone.

Use Case: Centrally Managing Shared Resource Bookings in Leadmonk

In this use case, each resource booking is independent of other shared resource bookings such as meeting room bookings. You want to manage bookings of all the shared resources centrally. To manage bookings of multiple shared resources, such as meeting rooms or gaming devices, centrally, Leadmonk offers two options to meet this requirement.

Option 1: Using the standalone feature in Leadmonk

To use this option, you can follow the below steps in Leadmonk:

1. Create an Meeting Type for Each Shared Resource

Create an Meeting type for each shared resource, such as meeting rooms, that you want to manage centrally. Customize each Meeting type by adding the resource details, such as name, description, and booking duration.

2. Create Availability Profiles

Create availability profiles with each resource name for easy identification, and maintain the shared resource availability in that profile for booking. Specify these availability profiles in the relevant Meeting types created earlier.

3. Select "Standalone" Option

In the "Availability Preferences" section of the Meeting type, select the "Standalone" option. This option lets the Meeting type behave as a standalone calendar for free-busy availability checks while showing open appointment slots to the invitees. In this case, a connected Google/Outlook calendar is used to add appointments to the calendar and not for availability checks.

4. Add Invitee Questions

Add invitee questions to the Meeting type if required to collect the details you want from invites as part of the resource booking.

5. Add Reminders

Add email/SMS/WhatsApp reminders to the Meeting type to reduce no-shows. You can also make use of workflows to send appointment notifications.


6. Clone Meeting Types

You can clone the Meeting type to quickly create new ones with minimal changes such as name, description, and availability profile for other shared resources.

7. Publish the Booking Page

Publish your booking page wherever clients find you, such as embedding Leadmonk on your website or adding Leadmonk to your emails, text messages, WhatsApp, or social media profiles.

8. View Appointment History

You can easily see the appointment history of clients in Leadmonk. You can filter appointments by name/email address/mobile number/appointment type, and export appointments to an Excel file for further analysis.

Note: The availability of resources is determined only based on the bookings done in the Leadmonk application. If you make a resource booking outside of the Leadmonk application, then Leadmonk doesn’t consider that while determining the availability check as it does not refer connected calendar for that.

By following these steps, you can efficiently manage shared resource bookings centrally using Leadmonk's standalone feature, ensuring that resources are booked correctly and conflicts are avoided. The process is streamlined and straightforward, saving you time and effort in managing shared resource bookings.

Option 2: Individual Leadmonk User Accounts for Each Shared Resource

If you prefer managing your shared resources using separate user accounts for each resource, Leadmonk provides you with that option. Each shared resource can be managed using a distinct Google/Outlook calendar. Here are the steps you need to follow to set up shared resource bookings using individual Leadmonk user accounts:

  1. The owner/admin of the organization creates an organization or workspace in Leadmonk and invites other users using the email address of each shared resource. Check out the help page on creating an organization (workspace) in Leadmonk for more information.
  2. Once Leadmonk accounts are created for each shared resource email address, the owner/admin creates a team page and adds these users to be part of that team. For more information on how to set up your team booking page, refer to the help page.
  3. Create team event types such as a collective event for each shared resource by adding the Leadmonk user account that represents a shared resource. You can refer to the help page on how to view the team page and create team event types for more information.
  4. You can easily track the appointment history of each shared resource in Leadmonk. You can filter appointments by name, email address, mobile number, or event type. Additionally, you can export appointments to an Excel file for further analysis.
