Book online appointments from Matrix leveraging a Datastore schedule

Use this recipe to publish available appointment times on your Matrix site so your customers can book online, automatically sending a Zoom meeting to all participants. In this extended version, appointment slots are managed in Datastore blueprint book meetings.

Implement this recipe to enable your customers to easily book online appointments with your team, according to a schedule managed in Datastore.

Both the customer and your staff member(s) will automatically receive a Zoom meeting invitation for the selected time minimising overhead and human error.

The Datastore schedule is updated automatically after a slot has been booked to prevent double bookings.
