Google Calendar/KEAP App, blocking a 24h window

I’m using the Keap App as a CRM and Calendar booking tool. It is AWESOME but only allows a four hour blocking window for clients to book. So sometimes I don’t get too much of a headstart on client appointments - for example it might be noon and they can still book for four or five pm the same day. I would rather have a 24 hour window, given the nature of my business and how I need to prepare.

I have contacted Keap and they are pretty useless in the customer service department for this issue - saying I need to manually block off my Google Calendar every night. Ummmm, no, this is the whole point of automation! Another agent said I could use Zapier, which I already pay for, for other things, but I don’t know how to create a zap in my Google Calendar to extend a block-off every night?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi @rrchapman42 

Perhaps look into using a scheduling app such as Calendly or Acuity that integrates with GCal and has more robust calendar controls.

I’m already using KEAP which is phenomenal for all aspects of my business. This is the only quirk. They sent me to you guys to see if I could “Zap” a block into my Google Calendar every night for the next day. Any suggestions? I don’t know how to do that.
