Creating Appointment Availabilities in Coyote Connections


How to create appointment availability in Coyote Connections


  • Coyote Connections


Setting up availability defines the days and times you will be available to meet with students. It is important to note that locations and services were created by the Coyote Connections Implementation Team. Because we cannot include every room number in the entire campus, the default location for office hours is My Professor’s Office.


Note: For those who wish to set up calendar availabilities for meetings with advisees during the advising period and/or for other purposes, there are a series of three instructions that need to be followed in order. 

  1. Calendar Sync with Outlook Exchange
