Have you ever put an interactive public calendar on your website?
I'm trying to add a tutoring section to my website where potential students can come to my website, look at the calendar and schedule themselves in. Have you had experience with this. I can grab the html from a google calendar and add it in my website builder, but I'm wondering if one calendar is more successful than other. What is YOUR experience with this? Cheers, Billie
I have a computer business and considered doing this. It seems to make sense in your situation, however in mine I am concerned about security. I know I have the capability to show a public Google calendar without showing appointment information, however even Google themselves also warn about the security implications of making calendars public, so I've been very apprehensive with doing this. My initial thought was that doing so would make my online appointment scheduling easier, however, I rethought it and also decided that I didn't want customers to see all of my potentially-available time (I like to have weekends off for example, etc). So, I've stuck with my old-fashioned way of doing it and responding to form emails with possible appointment times.
