Appointments: Customize your personal booking limits

In this article

The Booking Limits for your personal Appointments settings allow you to customize the limits for the number of appointments that an individual patron can make with you.  You can choose to respect the system-wide limits, override the system-wide limits with your own custom booking limits, or disable booking limits entirely for yourself. While Admins can set the default limits, the values that you select for your account will override those defaults.

The limits set here work together, for example, you may wish to enforce a maximum of 20 appointments per month and also enforce a maximum of 10 appointments per week. Set a value to 0 to disable that limit. These limits all relate to an individual patron, identified by either an email address or LibAuth username.


To manage the booking limits for your appointments:

  1. Click on Appointments from the command bar.
  2. Click on the My Settings tab.
