40 min meetings but only start on the hour or half hour?

In YCBM is it possible to allow only 40 minute meetings and only to start on the hour or half hour?

One of our departments is interested in YCBM but this is a requirement and it’s not clear to us that it can be done. Calendly apparently supports this.

Thank you,

@max welcome to the Forum! Right now folks can use Custom Availability to control the start times they need each day. (Setting specific Start times) The challenge with offering 40 minutes is that everything is built around the grid display increment you have set. So by default with a 40 minute duration and increment you can only have start times every 40 minutes. If this is adjusted to 10 minutes that will allow start times at the top and half hour. Coupled with the Custom Availability times this will allow for more start times while having a 40 minute duration.

Our product team has been looking at scoping out a solution that will allow users to select a specific start time or internal (top and half hour) and a duration so make them separate. What other requirements do does your team need?

Hi @Ben. Thanks for the response. This is the primary requirement they could not achieve with YCBM currently. It’s good to know you guys are looking into it. I’m assuming you don’t have an ETA yet, but let me know when might be good timeframe to check back.


@max no ETA as of yet, but our design and product team are mapping out all of this to expose the firction and explore new options. We will be sure to update you once we have more information.

Sounds good, thanks Ben.
