Overall Satisfaction with Calendly

We 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.
  • 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.
Calendly worked from the very start. The others all had some startup woes so I stopped using them and waited for something better to come along. Once I saw Calendly in action, I knew right away this would be a useful scheduling tool for me to be using in my daily life for both work and personal appointment setting.
It is great for people who don't have an assistant to manage their calendar, or who are tired of playing scheduling tag.

It is not good for people who like to "personally" schedule every appointment as once someone has your scheduling link anyone can book an appointment with you and it's on your calendar. For busy people, remote workers, or anyone who wants to make life easier for others, Calendly is for them.
