Different event types are used for creating a new event/meeting

- Multiple Slots: The meeting is segmented into multiple time slots. The participant is required to sign up.
- Single Slot: There is a single time slot for an event/meeting; the number of participants can be limited or unlimited and the participant is required to sign up.
- Announcement: There is a single time slot for an event/meeting and sign-up is not required for participants.

Lock or cancel a time slot
Lock/Unlcok: Once the time slot is locked, participants can no longer sign up; however they can cancel their appointment. Unlock reopens the time slot.
Cancel/Restore: Once the time slot is cancelled, all participants associated with that time slot will be removed (including those on the wait list), and participants can no longer sign up or add themselves to the wait list. Restore will reopen this time slot but it will not restore the former participants.
