We use YouCanBook.Me (YCBM) as part of our online scheduling and reservation system for academic spaces inside our main campus. This is part of our core unit that delivers technology services and facilitates activities such as videoconferencing, online cousres, webinar hosting, etc. It helps us automate the process of our users requesting a specific time/date for an activity, by allowing us to confirm it via automatic emails that we get when someone fills an event form in a calendar slot inside our portal.
  • Great at synchronizing with your enterprise calendar (Gsuite, outlook, icloud) that updates changes to events (creation, rescheduling and cancelling) both in a quick and reliable way.
  • It simplifies the reservation process by sending you and your clients automatic email messages to confirm, reschedule or cancelling a requested appointment, activity or event.
  • Youcanbookme integrates to your website in a seamless way. It allows you to fully customize it's layout and graphic style to fully match that of your company's website.
  • It has many options for creating workflows that meet your company's specific needs, it works great with third party APIs (via webhooks) and is supported in Zapier to easily work in conjunction with a bunch of other services.
  • The new billing method is not convenient at all, because it you pay on the amount of calendars linked to your account. This limits how you can take advantage of many features, and you have to be very careful on how many calendars you will be paying for every year.
  • Youcanbookme forms are easy to setup, but it would be really great if would be really helpful if one could incorporate a little logic into them. For example, if yes is answered then display this question but if no, then go to the end of the form.
  • Handling email addresses for youcanbookme reservations is a hassle because there is no option for the user to upload them from a spreadsheet or CSV file, instead they have to manually input them and this gives a lot of room for human error.
Youcanbook.me is great for small businesses or for self-employed professionals who need an easy-to-use and cost-effective solution for handling large numbers of clients. It's great for eliminating inconvenient miscommunication and tedious back-to-back emails in order to set a proper date and/or meeting details. However, if you need a more sophisticated system that fits into your company's IT procedures and carries sensitive data, an in house solution would fit best.

We were looking for a tool that would allow people to sign up for a demo of software that fit their schedule. We looked at a few options, but ultimately found YouCanBook.Me, and the results have been great. This integrates with our existing calendar so I never miss an appointment, and it allows our customers and potential customers to choose the time that works best for them. It's priced great and it really works!
  • Allowing Customers to schedule meetings on my calendar.
  • Calendar Integrations.
  • Vacation/Away times -- there's not currently a way to just block out a day without doing it through your calendar.
If you are allowing anyone else to schedule appointments on your calendar, this is a perfect solution.

This app allows us to schedule appointments "automagically." It just works! If you need a tool to permit automated appointment scheduling, this is my favorite. And I've tried several.

Without hassle, once the tool is set up (which is simple AND easy) it takes into account in real time whichever calendars you use to indicate your UNavailability. That presents your clients to find one of your preselected times that works in THEIR schedule. This saves untold hours of back-and-forth to arrange a time to meet in person or virtually. Then, it sends as many reminders to you AND your client or colleague to help make sure that connection occurs.

YouCanBook.Me also allows you to have multiple pages and multiple meeting specs for various audiences. Its ability to also include "stories" to provide background and promos of whatever you wish to promote.
  • Coordinates calendars in real time, including from disparate providers (e.g., Google Calendar, Outlook, iCloud/Apple) at no added cost (unlike competitor practices)
  • Makes it simple to create multiple pages and types of appointments to offer, with unique looks
  • The user experience for clients is simple, intuitive, and professional
  • I'd LOVE to see the ability to have multiple parties find a coordinated time to hold a meeting within the context of YouCanBook.Me
  • The UI for the backend might also be clearer with the names assigned to various functions
  • Even more contemporary landing page options would be welcome
This is ideal for an automated appointment setting tool. Once set up, it allows others to arrange appointments when it fits their calendar in the context of your availability.

If you are coordinating a time for MULTIPLE parties at once, YouCanBook.Me is not useful.

We use YouCanBook.Me across a few teams within our organization. It is most heavily used by our recruiting team to schedule calls with prospects and applicants for our internship program, but since we are an international organization it is also sometimes helpful for scheduling calls between our US office and team members in other places. It makes it really easy to schedule calls across time zones and sync them to your calendar.
  • One really helpful feature of YouCanBook.Me for our organization is that everyone can see appointment times in their own time zone. We frequently schedule interviews with applicants nationwide, as well as communicating with team members located in 32 different countries, so this has really simplified scheduling.
  • We rely heavily on Google Calendar for staff scheduling, so it is great that YouCanBook.Me can sync your availability straight from your calendar as well as automatically adding meetings to your calendar when they are booked.
  • We use YouCanBook.Me to schedule follow-up calls with people we meet at conferences and other recruiting events. It's really simple to have someone sign up for a call, and this has been a really effective tool for us to stay in communication with prospects.
  • I honestly can't think of anything I have had trouble with. YouCanBook.Me has served all of the functions I have needed it to.
YouCanBook.Me has made it really easy to schedule calls with applicants and with team members scattered across the world. We use it a lot to schedule follow up calls with potential leads from conferences and other recruiting events, which has been really key in converting leads from those events, and we direct applicants for our internship and staff positions to YouCanBook.Me to schedule interviews. We also use it to schedule calls with team members internationally. It is most useful for scheduling a call between two participants.

Youcanbook.me is being used by our project management team to schedule online moderated interviews between our researchers and our test participants, or between our test participants and our customers. It helps a lot with our scheduling because it syncs with Google calendar, and it sends our participants automatic reminders. It works a majority of the time. There have been a LOT of bugs with it, and we've constantly had to contact support, but it's getting there!
  • Automatic reminders sent to scheduled individuals.
  • You can customize reminders and confirmations sent to individuals, and customize a lot of other parts of the messaging.
  • You can use it to mass schedule a lot of individuals into various time slots. It's fairly complicated to train someone on, but easy to use once you get it.
  • We loved the old version of youcanbook.me. Once they updated the site and functionality, we hated it. We kept reverting back to the old version, but now we cannot use the old version anymore. The new version has made it much slower to set up a new profile and fill in all of the reminders.
  • If they made it faster to populate a new profile by limiting repetition, that'd be awesome. We have to edit the titles of calendar events, emails to us, emails to participants, etc.
  • Working with Google calendar is sometimes frustrating, but they've recently updated it to make it easier for us to duplicate calendar events. Youcanbook.me syncs with Google calendar, so making all of the calendar events set to "Free" (previously, "Available") is pretty annoying.
It's well suited to send to a bunch of people to schedule interviews, appointments, massages, etc. It's not appropriate if there are just a few people you need to schedule. Recruiters can use this to schedule candidates in for interviews with individuals. If the interviewer provides the recruiter with calendar time slots, then the recruiter can use youcanbook.me to schedule in those candidates.
