Recurring Reserves are used to block out times when you will not be available for Appointments and can be created when scheduling Appointments via Site Administration. The Recurring Reserves feature is enabled by default for all accounts, however, if you have disabled the ability to create Reserves, you will need to make a quick preference change to your AppointmentPlus account.
NOTE: Due to the high level of customization available when creating time slots, the Recurring Reserves feature is NOT available when using the Multiple Appointment Per Time Slot (MAPTS) version of the AppointmentPlus scheduling system.
