    Hi Alexander,

    Thanks for reaching out to Jotform Support. For your first question if you can set a period yourself, yes, you can set the start time and end time in the Google Calendar integration setup. If the appointment duration will take more than one day, you can set up two Date Picker fields that will serve as the Start and End dates.

    You can then select these fields as the Start and End times on the integration setup.

    Please note that you can set limits on the Date Picker field if you only want certain dates to be selectable.

    For your second question, the Google Calendar will not detect if there's an overlap in appointments. After the submission, a new event in the calendar will be created regardless if there's already an event plotted on that date from a previous submission. You have to make sure that there are no overlapping appointments that will be plotted on the calendar which can be done using the Appointment field. The Appointment field lets you set limits where a timeslot will be disabled if already selected to avoid overlapping appointments.

    For your third question, I'm not sure what you're referring to since it seems to be incomplete.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.
