Use Google Calendar Appointment Slots + Google Meet for Remote 1:1 Meetings with Students
You can set up a block of appointments on your calendar and invite your students to reserve time to meet with you during designated times.
Appointment slots are useful when you don't know who needs to meet with you, but you want to make yourself available. You can offer students a block of time on your calendar that they can book time slots within. For example, you can set aside 2 hours that you're available to meet with people in 15-minute slots. Others can then book one of the 15-minute slots within that time that works best for them. Here's an article with details on how you can set this up.
