Overall Satisfaction with Calendly

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. I just send the link to whoever I want to set up a meeting with and it automatically shows them when I am free in their local time. 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.
  • 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.
I was using Google Calendar before this to track my meetings but this one has several advantages over that. It syncs better with Outlook. It is easier to use. And you can automate a large part of your meeting set up. I don't know if any other software can do all of that.
It is the perfect tool if you have been having issues with switching between time zones for meetings. It is also a great way to save a lot of time and email correspondence by simplifying how meetings can be set up. Plus it integrates with Outlook and syncs with your calendar. But, conversely, if you don't set up a lot of meetings or if you set up calls through your email client, I think you can get by without it.
