Appointments, unlike Sessions, are usually made for more "unofficial" purposes, e.g.: Private Counselling sessions with Faculty, Room Bookings, Rehearsal Rooms, etc.

Appointment Type determines the Appointments available for selection within the Appointment Scheduler.
|Name||The name to be given to an Appointment Type.|
|Active||[ TRUE/FALSE ] Determines if the Appointment is available for selection.|

|LocationOnly||Removes Faculty selection list in the Appointment Scheduler.|
|LocationRequired||Determines if a Location is Required to make an Appointment.|
