Calendly is appointment scheduling software from the company of the same name in Atlanta, Georgia.Calendly saves you time, reduces drop offs, and increases the amount of meetings bookedCalendly provides Dyknow with an easy and frictionless scheduling experience with those outside of our organization. It is used by our sales, marketing, and services teams. Calendly reduces the time-consuming back-and-forth between prospects, clients, external consultants, and vendors with our internal teams on getting meetings scheduled. Calendly allows the recipients to pick a convenient time that works best for them that live-syncs with our internal calendars ensuring we are available at the time they select.,Live-calendar syncing with our business calendars. We use outlook and have other technologies that constantly update and change our internal schedules. Calendly has NEVER messed up by syncing inaccurate times or failing to update. As you update your business calendar, Calendly will work seamlessly in the background to show available times to external people wanting to schedule meetings. Calendly reduces the time it takes and the constant back-and-forth with external people to get meetings booked. Just shoot them your link and they pick the best available time listed on your calendar. Calendly is set it and forget it. I manage all of our marketing technologies at Dyknow, and it is refreshing knowing that I don't have to go into Calendly unless I'm adding a new hire. You set it up and forget it, and it just works.,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.,10,Reduces the time it takes for prospects to book demos and free trial calls with our sales team, resulting in less drop offs, higher engagements, and more meetings. Reduces the back-and-forth effort between internal and external individuals on trying to find a time that works for both parties. Calendly is 100% reliable, which I can not say about many of our other technologies. Once you set it up, it's set it and forget it. This allows you to work on other initiatives that matter.,Drift and Zoom,Google Analytics, Canva, Google FormsScheduling FreedomWe use Calendly to make it easy for outsiders to book meetings and schedule calls with us. As a company, we use it for all senior staff as it solves a big problem of getting outsiders to book appointments without going back and forth through email or phone calls. In the past, there was this steady back and forth, but Calendly gives everyone real-time access to the calendar, in their own time zone, and making an appointment is a breeze.,The interface is easy to use. There's no need to read any setup instructions. They now have a mobile app!!!! They include location information in the setup with your calendar. It integrates with Google Calendar.,Needs an SMS feature to notify when an appointment is made. Needs a time zone calendaring function for international scheduling. Meeting options should offer color coding.,10,I find that Calendly is a time saver. Calendly's integration with Google Calendar makes my life easier. Now that there's a mobile app, I'll be using it a lot more as more of my day is mobile than desktop/laptop.,Doodle and ScheduleOnce,Slack, Basecamp, G Suite, Dialpad, UberConference, TripIt, Zoom, WordPressCalendly makes scheduling simple and efficientI started using Calendly this past year as a means of creating a CTA with people I wanted to speak with or meet with. I use it within emails as well as in my email signature. I also use my Calendly link as a CTA in custom videos that I create in Dubb. It's incredibly useful that it can be easily synced with my Google calendar and automatically update my schedule. Once I started using it I recommended it to my partner who began using it as well. It has served us very so far in allowing us to set up meetings passively by giving our contacts the opportunity to schedule a time to speak at a time that is convenient for them.,Calendly syncs instantly with my Google calendar. So not only do I automatically know when I have new appointments scheduled, but if I input a different event onto my google calendar Calendly knows that I'm not available at that time. The direct link that allows people to schedule a time slot with me is great. It makes scheduling simple and painless, and make sit easy for me to create a clickable CTA. I love that I can collect payments through the platforms either via Stripe or PayPal. both of which I use. It makes the platform more "all-in-one" and makes for a seamless experience.,The free version of Calendly limits the amount of event types you can make available. You can only have one even type. So if you choose a 15 minute meeting slot as your single event type and you want to schedule something for 30 or 45 minutes, the person scheduling with you has to schedule multiple consecutive time slots instead of one longer meeting period. I understand the need to limit features for those only using the free option though and so it's not necessarily unreasonable. It's pretty standard in SaaS platforms. This is a little nit-picky but the trial period to try out all features is only 14 days. It would be great if they could up that trial period to 30 days. It's a much more reasonable time frame to be able to get a handle on the platform and see if the paid options are necessary or not. It would be great if Calendly could sync up with more than one calendar at a time. If someone keeps different calendars (for example, one for home and one for work) or two different calendar platforms (for example, apple calendar and google calendar) it would be great if it were able to pull information from both calendars. If Calendly is already able to do this, I'm not aware of it.,10,I can say that Calendly has allowed me to schedule more phone calls than I used to in the past. It has gotten people on the phone with me way more than what I used to be able to do when requesting a phone conversation in an email. Calendly has also reduced the amount of time I need to spend scheduling meetings and phone calls. I no longer need to go back and forth with people. I can just leave the Calendly link for them to click on and they choose the time that works best. It cuts down on a lot of back and forth time. And as we all know, time is money. Internally, it has allowed us to schedule meetings with each other as well without needing to discuss available days and times. Simply clicking on my partner's link and scheduling myself in for 15 minutes makes it easy for us to know when we need to sit down and chat or go over things.,,Gusto, MailChimp, TaxJarSave Hours with CalendlyCalendly is being used by our customer success team for new customers to schedule their onboarding meetings with their success rep. This includes an initial call and then a training session, but we also use this for schedule one-off trainings with current customers. A custom link is sent out from each individual rep to their accounts they're working with.,They have a very clean and simple interface for the admin user as well as the person scheduling a time. You can customize how the scheduler determines open times. The customization is very well thought out and very flexible. If you upgrade to the paid version, you can set up several different meeting types which would be very valuable for teams with multiple users needing to schedule varying sessions.,From a design perspective, it would be nice to customize the look of their pages to match the admin's brand more. If you have open time slots in your calendar, it looks at sessions based on the hour and half hour rather than 15 minute increments. For example, if I was booked from 1:30-2 and 3-4 and asked to put a 15 minute cushion between meetings, 2:15-2:45 wouldn't show up in my scheduler however it would be a time that would work for me. I wish they had a bit more conditional logic built in when booking a time.,10,It's saved our team hours of scheduling meetings with customers throughout the week. It's allowed our customers to schedule times that work for their entire team well in advance and also let's them schedule with one of our team members in advance if that team member is out of the office. Their Chrome extension and email selector tool is so easy to use and reviews our calendars in real-time so we aren't double booked.,Assistant.to,UberConference, RingCentral, Zoom, GoToWebinar, Emma, MailChimp, Google Drive, Google Domains, Kindful, Eventbrite, Intercom, Zuora, Wistia, Assistant.to, Appcues, JIRA Software, Populr, Vimeo Pro, Employee Navigator, Evernote, Todoist, Groove, Slack, LastPass, Basecamp, Asana, Trello, Typeform, Gusto, Stripe, Fundraising Report Card, Shopify, Zapier, IFTTTThe perfect solution for all your scheduling woes!I work with clients that are located in different countries and, therefore, different time zones. So, setting up meetings was always an issue. There were time zone related problems in addition to the usual back and forth of trying to find common available time. I installed Calendly off the recommendation of a colleague. And boy has it completely changed the way I schedule meetings. It's a great tool.

And I get a notification when someone books a meeting with me in my local time. Plus, it integrates with my Outlook so I don't have to worry about meeting conflicts. It is an absolutely amazing software that I now recommend to anyone who needs a better way to set up meetings.,Makes it really simple to schedule meetings even between different time zones. Integrates with Outlook. Solves the problem of back and forth emails trying to find a common free time slot. It is really easy to set up. The basic version is free and contains the full functionality you would need.,Some integrations are divided between two paid tiers. I would like simplified pricing.,10,Saved me time and effort by automating a chunk of the meeting/setup process. It has also made it easier to keep track of my meetings since it syncs with Outlook.,,PayPal Payments, Squarespace, TeamViewer, Zoom, DocuSign, Slack, Kaspersky Endpoint Security, Golden Frog VyprVPN

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use it to schedule sales and consulting meetings for multiple business units in our organization. Currently, it is being utilized in two of our business units. I has helped us address the need to sync our scheduling software with Salesforce and GoToMeeting, as that is what we were using for our CRM and video conferencing solutions. It also had a complex enough teaming capability to pool availability and also prioritize consultants within that pool. Their customer service has been second to none, and they helped us get our pretty complex scheduling requirements up and running within a week. I highly recommend this software.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I primarily use Calendly for my own personal scheduling for work. As a recruiter, a lot of my time is spent figuring out the best times to talk to a candidate to schedule an interview so Calendly greatly helps to cut that time down. Instead of going back and forth three or four times to figure out a time and then sending out a calendar invite, I just send out the Calendly link and the rest falls in place.

This is my go-to tool to set up meetings. I work with clients across multiple locations and different time zones and trying to schedule a meeting meant a lot of emails trying to figure out what time would work for everyone. Calendly is a fantastic solution to that problem. Create a alendlyC link and anyone you send that link to will be able to see what your availability is like. And because it syncs with your Microsoft Outlook, it means it can even keep tabs on meetings that were scheduled outside of Calendly so you don't end up being double booked. You automatically get notified when someone books a meeting with you and it even adds it to your calendar. It just saves you an incredible amount of time. It almost feels like having a personal assistant setting up your meetings.

As a freelance consultant, I use Calendly for all my meetings. I also recommend it to all my clients, most of whom switch away from their current solution because Calendly is so comprehensive and competitively priced.

I have created numerous appointment types (events) so I can share them with various segments to better structure my day around the type of work and meetings I want to batch. The custom notifications and reminder messages make follow up and confirmation that much more effective, reducing the rate of no-shows to essentially zero for me.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Calendly in sales and marketing. We felt that rather than forms being filled out by prospects with the back and forth of "when are you available, can you meet tomorrow" we could simply have the client choose a time on the calendar of one of our consultants. The meeting invite is set up, the conference bridge information is shared and it removes any hesitation of meeting with a prospect. Usually, our prospects are very happy to work with us after the initial consult and so getting that initial consult is made far easier with something like Calendly which is easy to use and engage with on both sides.
