You can set the availability of your practice's configured locations and practitioners, from the Availability tab in Settings. A room's availability will appear in the General view of your practice's Appointments calendar.

Note: If you want to edit your practice's availability, you must be assigned a role that has Availability editing permissions. For more information on roles, see here.
