Overall Satisfaction with Calendly

I've used Calendly off and on for about 3 years. I most often use it to set up appointments with existing customers for product interviews. These interviews may include other members of my team. It is fairly difficult to try and arrange this manually - lots of back and forth with the customer. Calendly makes that super easy - I create a shared appointment calendar for anyone I want to include, and send the link to my customer. They can then pick any available appointment slots.
  • Great for setting up external meetings.
  • Particularly good if you have multiple people from your organization that you want to include.
  • Has all of the settings and configurations that you might need - I haven't run into a problem that I couldn't solve yet.
  • The user experience has always been it's downfall, particularly when you want to set up appointments with multiple people from your team. It just isn't intuitive.
  • Definitely saved time setting up complex appointments!
  • The paid version is completely worth the cost.
More recently, I have started using Meetingbird by Front. They are essentially the same product, but Meetingbird has a decidedly better design and user experience. It's just easier to use. Also - the product is free because Front is just using it to generate leads for its marketing platform. So honestly, I prefer Meetingbird at this point.
I can only remember needing support once. It was fast and accurate, with no complaints.

Calendly is great when you want to book appointments with someone outside your organization. Once you set up your appointment slots, you can just hand out the link to anyone.
