Existing appointments may be rescheduled. An appointment should be arranged with the applicant beforehand.


You use the calendar integration Plus? Then you can simply tell the applicants when moving appointments that they can reload the appointment booking page for updated appointment selection. Thanks to automatic redirection, the original link remains valid even after the appointment booking has been processed.

If you reschedule an appointment to book a different room, you do not need to inform the applicant by sending new correspondence - this information should remain internal.


Moving appointments requires at least one correspondence template with the Available at: Move appointment. If necessary, first perform the Create correspondence template step. When composing the message text, use the placeholder row Old Appointment to specify the appointment data before the move, and New Appointment to specify the updated appointment data, if necessary.

  • Moving appointments can be done by all users
    Users with access to the Activities tab in the Application, can move appointments. Appointment postponements can thus be performed independently of the appointment organizer. If another user moves the appointment, the following message is displayed:
    The appointment is moved on behalf of the organizer First Name Last Name. The organizer is not informed about it separately.
  • Changing an MS Teams appointment to an on-site appointment

    If an appointment is set as an MS Teams appointment, it can be moved.

    However, the appointment cannot be changed to an on-site appointment. To do this, the old appointment must be cancelled and a new one created.

  • Calendar of the appointment organizer is disconnected
    The appointment cannot be moved. The following message is displayed:
    The calendar of the appointment organizer First name Last name is not connected. Initiate reconnection or cancel the appointment and create a new one."
    If the appointment is canceled, the following message appears:
    The calendar of the appointment organizer First Name Last Name is not connected. Therefore, the appointment will not be automatically removed from the participants' calendars. The participants will be notified by e-mail. 
  • External participants are those to whom the appointment was forwarded outside d.vinci.
    They will be retained when the appointment is rescheduled and cannot be deselected. Their availability is also not taken into account, since the calendars are not connected to d.vinci. Please check the availabilities of the external participants in your company calendar before.
  • The appointment status of the external participants will be reset to Pending when the appointment is rescheduled. 
  • The applicant will receive an email with the correspondence regarding the appointment rescheduling. 
  • Appointment participants do not receive any information about the appointment postponement by e-mail. The new appointment appears in the calendar without notification.
  • Appointment postponement is listed in the application history.
