If you want to update a setting for multiple appointment types at the same time, you can choose to bulk update settings. Here's how you can do this.
Where to find the bulk update settings?
Go to the Appointment types section and click on Bulk update settings
Now you can toggle and edit the settings and select the appointment types where the changes should be made
How does it work?
When you've opened the bulk update page, you will have to perform three steps in order to successfully change the settings in one or more appointment types.
Activate and edit settings
In the first step you will have to update one or more settings.
Toggle the button next to the setting you want to edit. If it shows green it will be activated when confirming the bulk updates eg. Duration
Fill in or select the correct data for the settings. Eg. Duration = 30 minutes
Perform the above steps for all the relevant settings. You can do this for:
An active or inactive appointment type
Show availability in increments of x minutes
Allow bookings up to x days in the future
Minimum buffer before booking
Booking start & end date
Buffer before and after meeting
Choose appointment types to which the settings should apply
In this step you will need to select all the appointment types to which the changes in step 1 should be applied.
If you and your team have created a lot of appointment types, you can use the filter to search for very specific appointment types.
If you select a team appointment type, this will be edited for all the hosts!

Team admins vs non-admins
Both admins and non-admins of a team can bulk update appointment types, but there is a difference between which appointment types they can update.
Team admins can bulk update all the appointment types in the team. This includes:
their own personal appointment types
personal appointment types of other team members
team appointment types
Note: in the above image 'My name' is a team admin and 'Chris' is a non-admin.
Non-admins are able to bulk update their own personal appointment types.
