Overall Satisfaction with Calendly

I use Calendly to schedule appointments with current and potential coaching clients. It eliminates the back-and-forth "ping-pong" emails that I used to use when trying to set up times for meetings. Calendly gives real-time access to my calendar so clients can choose the date and time that works best for them when scheduling a meeting.

Pros

  • Gives clients real-time access to my calendar for scheduling appointments.
  • Allows me to set custom parameters for times I am available for meetings.
  • Gives the client "control" of when a meeting is scheduled.

Cons

  • The customer-facing interface could use some beautification, it is a bit vanilla.
  • The Google Chrome plugin allows setting up ad-hoc meetings, but you cannot edit those once the invitations are issued.
  • This works great for one-to-one meetings, but if you are trying to find a time that works for multiple persons to meet at the same time, this does not work. I have to use Doodle Polls for those cases.
  • This has saved me a ton of time by eliminating back-and-forth emails trying to find a time to meet.
  • The real-time interface with my calendar is fantastic. The available dates/times that a client sees are always accurate.
For anyone who schedules appointments with individuals, this is a great tool. You set the parameters when you are available to meet, and then the client selects the time that works best for them. Calendly connects real-time with your calendar so there is no over-booking. It makes scheduling a breeze and gives control to the client for setting a time.
