This tutorial explains how scheduling works in StudioCloud and provides the various options for setting it up.

What is a Calendar Type

Calendar types are the brains behind the calendar. Using calendar types you can select what type of appointment, session, or event you are scheduling and setup lots of different actions based on the type of calendar type. Some of those actions include CloudAlerts, automatic personalized email and text messages, confirmation emails or text messages, as well as pipelines to track what needs to be done before or after an appointment, session or event.

StudioCloud also support running reports based on the type of calendar type so it is important to setup calendar types in a way that supports running financial reports.
