Assistant.to

Assistant.to is well suited for anyone working with a large number of clients at once who need to schedule multiple meetings. If those clients do not have a background in online scheduling, then using this tool may not be the best solution. Assistant.to is a great tool for quickly scheduling meetings with options across 3 days, but for those wanting more flexibility you may want to consider Calendly.

Calendly

Calendly is a great all-around scheduling app. It's really great if you need more than one team member to attend a certain meeting type because it can show only slots where both teammates are available. The free version is great if you only need one event type. If you use Zoom for meetings, Calendly can even assign a one-time meeting room for the meeting. Be aware that those meetings will not be saved in your Zoom account though.

Pros

Assistant.to

  • Their Chrome extension is very user-friendly. It allows you to quickly insert times into an email by selecting available timeframes then automatically converting them into individual links for each available time based on your meeting length preference (15 mins, 30 mins, 60 mins, etc).
  • Assistant.to automatically creates a calendar event and sends an invite when a recipient chooses a time. It also allows someone to quickly rebook a time or select an option if no times that were sent to them work with their availability.
  • You can customize your meeting settings but only send options for 3 days at a time. This is actually helpful in my opinion because it simplifies the selection experience so our customers choose a time sooner.

Calendly

  • Scheduling is simple and intuitive.
  • Customized reminders help clients and co-workers keep their appointments.
  • Reschedule link right in the invitation means clients and co-workers can reschedule their own appointments.
  • The ability to include buffer time before and after events helps avoid meeting overlap.
  • The ability to schedule two team members at the same time (paid accounts only) is awesome.
  • The Chrome extension allows for selection of specific/custom time slots.

Cons

Assistant.to

  • The app currently does not save the availability times that I select, therefore I have to re-select my availability every time I sent meeting options.
  • The app does not have the ability to customize the theme or styles of the meeting times. It'd be nice to allow users to choose between a set of themes to better fit their company's brand.
  • If Assistant.to had a scheduling link option like Calendly has, that would be another improvement. Sometimes we'll have customers who cannot meet until the following week, so having a scheduler link would be helpful in those situations.

Calendly

  • Integrations. We use Drift among other calendar booking technologies, and because we love Calendly so much we would like to solely use their platform for booking. However, due to the lack of integrations with marketing technologies we use we are unable to solely use Calendly.
  • Client marketing nurturing and product updates. Speaking of integrations, they have come out with some integrations over the past couple of years, but we weren't made well aware of it or the benefits the integrations provide. If they nurtured their customers more then we would be faster at optimizing the platform across all the possible marketing channels.
  • Calendly is an individual booking platform. I think it would be cool if Calendly came out with team features. So book a time with our "Sales Team" and show all available times for that team, giving external people more booking options.

Support has been great, luckily there have not been any bug issues that have taken us away from our regular day to day, but when we do have issues they are quick to respond and are alway willing to listen when it comes to product enhancement requests. As someone that works on the support side, that is greatly appreciated

Alternatives Considered

Assistant.to

When I first started at my current company, I used this tool because it was what the rest of the team used. However, since I learned about Calendly, who recently released a feature similar to Assistant.to, I've actually switched to Calendly. Calendly also has the ability to create a scheduling link where someone can choose a time based on the parameters you set. This has proven to be more helpful for certain clients.

Return on Investment

Assistant.to

  • The app has saved our organization time through less email replies in order to schedule meetings and also not having to review your calendar in a separate before replying.
  • We're able to onboard accounts more quickly through providing options only for the next three days. This forces customers to schedule their meetings sooner, which helps move our pipeline.
  • Since we do have some customers who are not technically savvy, it has caused some delays in scheduling for those that do not understand how to use the links provided to the customer by using Assistant.to.

Calendly

  • Frees up time
  • Fewer 'missed appointments'
  • Inexpensive- free version works well for the single user.
