If you see this popup, please select the highlighted checkbox to give permission to manage appointments (schedule/reschedule/cancel meetings) in your calendar.
If you don't select this checkbox, you may get an error message in Leadmonk application saying "Missing permission for calendar. Please ensure to enable calendar permissions during calendar linking".

After logging in to the Leadmonk application, you’ll land on your account's Home Page. From here, you can edit or share your event types, see your upcoming appointments, and more.
When you log in to your Leadmonk account, if the calendar is not yet connected to your account, you will see the below message on the home screen.
NOTE: Connecting the calendar is a prerequisite to making use of the appointment scheduling feature.
Click on 'Connect' button highlighted in red color box in the above image to connect Google or Outlook calendar(s). Once you connect your calendar(s), you are good to proceed further with event types customization.
Step 4.1: Event types management

You can make settings in Event type such as meeting duration, meeting place (Video or in-person), preferred availability, lead time, invitee questions, reminders, etc.) in the event type.
We got you started with a few popular event types.

Step 4.2: Event type and Booking pages Details
Step 5: Appointment Booking by Invitees
Share your appointment booking link via email, on social media sites, or embed them on your website and let your invitees schedule time with you at their convenience.
When your invitee book an appointment by selecting a time, the Calendar (meeting) invite is sent from your connected calendar to your invitees. Everyone is reminded before the appointment to avoid no-shows.
By default meeting host (organizer) gets email notification sent by Leadmonk as soon as invitee books an appointment. You can customize the email or SMS notification flow using workflow feature.
Invitee can view/reschedule/cancel appointment easily using the appointment link (highlighted in red color) specified in the meeting invite. Appointment details are mentioned in the calendar invitee.
Similarly Organizer can also view/reschedule/cancel appointment using the appointment link specified in the meeting invite.
Organizer can do the same using the appointment link specified in the notification email sent by Leadmonk and within Leadmonk app as well.
Step 6: Manage Scheduled Appointments in Leadmonk
After an invitee schedules an appointment with you, the details are added to your Home page under the Bookings menu.
Upcoming Appointments are shown in the Upcoming tab and past appointments are shown in the Past tab.
Clicking on a scheduled appointment will show its details. You can reschedule/cancel the appointment from the appointment details page.
Step 7: Personalize your Booking Page URL (Optional)
You can customize your scheduling links or booking links any time.
Go to Settings->Profile page. There look for Booking Page URL field
Click the EDIT button to edit the booking page URL.
Username has to be unique across the Leadmonk scheduling platform, and it must be of minimum 3 alphanumeric characters.
Once you make changes to your booking link, make sure to share (or embed in website) the booking link(s) again as earlier booking links become invalid.
