I want to use Bookings so my students can schedule office hours with me. Unfortunately, when I test what  have set up I keep getting this message: "This person isn't available on this date. Please choose another date or person." I've checked absolutely everything over and over. I am the only staff person, but I am listed as bookable and free for the hours I have set aside for office appointments.  I can't find the glitch.

@mhnicholas I had the same problem and figured it out. I had already blocked off the time in Outlook. So Bookings was reading my Outlook schedule and saying I was busy. Once I removed my office hours block from Outlook, the appointments appeared in my Bookings.
