Create and edit meeting types

When onboarding on Sendinblue's Meetings, you set up your booking page, and you can create your first meeting type, but you can always create new ones or/and edit them later. Meetings types are meeting templates you can use for your booking page.

  1. Choose a Start time interval
    A start time interval is the interval you allow between each meetings during an availability period. 
    For example: you want to allow your clients to book meetings every 30 minutes because you know meetings won't last more than 20-25 minutes, you can choose a start time interval of 30 minutes. 
    If you choose the Based on meeting duration interval, your interval between available slots will be the duration of your meeting. 
  2. Choose a break length between meetings. 
  3. Choose when to send a reminder to participants. 
    The reminder is an email, but can also be an SMS. 
    To learn how to send SMS reminders to your clients, check our dedicated article Send and receive meeting reminders
  4. Customize the end of the meeting type's link.  
    If you don't customize it, the end of the link will be the meeting type's name. 
  5. Choose a redirection link
    This link will redirect people who book your meeting to the external website of your choice.
