First, hover over any time slot in the calendar to change its availability. 

1. If the time slot is Away or Offline (aka: unavailable for booking), click "Online" to open it up. 

2. If the time slot is open/available and you need it to be unavailable, hover and click "Offline" or "Away" so clients won't see it as an option for booking.

3. You can even override Closed times directly in your calendar, without having them affect your Operating Hours. Just hover over a "Closed" time slot and click "Online".

These changes appear immediately and save automatically in your calendar. And you can always undo them by hovering and choosing a different status, if you've made a mistake or your availability changes.
