To avoid conflicts with your Google calendar events, you can simply disable the time slots easily with Workstream’s conflict avoidance feature. To do this, take the following steps:

Note that if your Google Calendar is not linked to your Workstream calendar yet, refer to this help article for guidance.

STEP 1: Log in to your Workstream account then select the gear icon located at the very bottom of the left menu.

STEP 2: Select Account.

STEP 3: Under Account Settings, select Scheduling.

STEP 4: Scroll down and enable Conflict Avoidance.


  • If you disable your time slots, the applicants won't be able to schedule it.

  • If you already have a scheduled time slot, and later, something is scheduled on Google Calendar, the event and time slot will still be there and active.

  • When you choose a time slot that is in conflict with your Google Calendar event, this is how it would look like:


Q: Why can applicants still schedule an interview even when I blocked a specific day/s in my Google Calendar?

A: In Google Calendar, if an event is created without a "Start" and "End" time, such as All-day or Multiple days, the Call Avoidance feature in Workstream will not work. To enable Call Avoidance on the days that you wanted to block, create an event and set a "Start" and "End" time.
