Required is a lead time that will prevent appointments from being scheduled if the requested appointment falls within that lead time.

Minimum Appointment Length
You can optionally set a minimum appointment length on your listings to help your sellers understand what to do with a day full of appointments.
As a requesting agent, you will see the minimum and maximum appointment lengths when scheduling on desktop and mobile. You will only be able to select appointment lengths that match these settings when scheduling and/or rescheduling appointments.
Maximum Appointment Window that you would like agents to schedule. Please be aware that if the option has been set to None, agents will be open to schedule appointments which may seem abnormally long as agents view the length of the appointments in two ways, as a time frame for a showing or as an appointment arrival window.
Allow Overlapping Appointments
You have 3 options to choose from:
- Yes, No need to inform the buyer's agents
- Yes, Please tell the buyer's agent ahead of time
- No, exclusive showings only
Maximum Number of Concurrent Appointments
When overlapping appointments are allowed, the listing agent can determine how many parties can be in the home at the same time. Options include 2-10 appointments maximum as well as no limit. Once the maximum number of overlapping appointments have been scheduled for a time slot, that time will show as blocked/unavailable on the scheduling calendar. However, the listing agent still has the option of scheduling on behalf of another agent in that time slot.
