Okay, so how do I put things on my calendar?  I have tried but I can only show the time I am available for work, not that I am already booked that day or that I am on vacation or not working?  I thought that if you use the Instant Match that it would see the date of the request from a customer and look at your calendar to see if you are available?  I can not update my calendar with anything other than working hours?  It would be nice if I could attach my Google calendar.  Any thoughts or help with this??

Hi there @DrJay. Although connecting your Google calendar isn't a feature right now, I can see how that would be helpful and will submit your feedback. If you use Instant Match, it does go off of your calendar to see if your available on the date the customer is needing the project done.
I looked at your calendar and it is all white, which means you don't have any times blocked out. In order to block a time out, you just need to click on the day and time and when you see it turn blue, that means that you're busy or have a job during that time. Here is a great article that walks you through the process: https://help.thumbtack.com/article/pro-calendar. Check it out and let me know if you have any questions.

 Please please please… What would it take to have the ability to put different hours of operation for different days of the week? It seems like such a simple fix and I can’t believe were still talking about this… It’s a no brainer that people hours of operation may vary from day today, I’m surprised they’re has not been more of an uproar about this.  As it stands, I literally have to go through every single week of the year and block out times each day, which is a royal pain! Can you please address this as soon as possible? All I am proposing is simple starting and ending hours following each day of the week.

I have some great news @pastadeej. Pros like you told us that they wanted to be able to set different business hours for different days of the week and now you can! Just go to your Services and select the service for which you want to set your business hours. When you edit your business hours, you’ll see that you can set business hours for each individual day of the week. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Ok, Under services and hours of operation, I still only see opening and closing hours on one line and then the days of the week you can check. It does not seem to give me the option to have different hours for each day of the week. Am I missing something?
