Overall Satisfaction with Calendly

We use Calendly to solve scheduling for consultations. With its simple and clean interface, Calendly makes scheduling an appointment without frustration. It gets straight to the point for what the client came to do: Make an appointment.
Marketing automation for the next steps is the business problem it addresses for us. Instead of taking several steps to accomplish one thing, we are now able to do that in one click.
  • Sign up is super fast.
  • User Experience (UX) is incredible.
  • Embed Calendly within a website easily.
  • From sign up to actually using Calendly for an average user is 5 minutes or less.
  • If you have more than one company, you cannot use one account. This is the most difficult hurdle to me but still one I am willing to jump over considering all the benefits of Calendly.
  • Adding custom color ability on event types. Example: One of my companies doesn't use any of the color choices. I would like to be able to color code those to my brand.
  • Brand/Asset kit would be a wonderful addition. In profile settings, have a place to upload brand logo, assets, and brand color codes.
  • Limiting number of appointments per day
  • User Experience and how easy it is to use
  • How fast I can add a new event (scheduling) type
  • I have never had someone say they don't understand how to schedule an appointment.
  • Lessened my stress for sure!
  • We are much more productivity with Calendly.
Square Appointments I like it as well it just doesn't have the robust ability that Calendly does. Personally, if there were an ability to do that, Square Appointments could give Calendly a run for their money for their own customers. I don't see how they could move the compete with customers that aren't theirs.
Not only do I personally use Calendly but I see it all the time in my business email. It is literally few seconds to schedule. When I see Calendly, I am relieved immediately. That is how easy it is to understand their platform.

Calendly is well suited for companies that need to put a calendar in place that doesn't want to waste time on the details. They want to get to business.
Accelerating the sales process and lead generation are reasons I feel it is well suited. The simplicity of Calendly helps the brain to make better decisions because it is not distracted.
Calendly would not be well suited for entrepreneurs who have multiple companies. It would also not work well and tend to be confusing for holding company or any organization requiring multiple domain/extensions.
