Pros: I loved that they had a free version and seems reasonably priced for added features. It was easy to sync with google calendars . I loved that I could block out what times I was available and when I was not.

Cons: I abandoned using it because it didn't sync with software that I used. There's probably a way to do this but I couldn't figure it out.

Pros: Clients can quickly understand what slots on our calendars are open and the user interface is very clean and non cluttered. I also have to mention that they recently integrated with google analytics which is something that wasn't present before which is super helpful.

Cons: I have no complaints about this software. Initially, this software could only look at 1 calendar to determine availability but I was able to resolve it with setting up sharing in Google calendars to fid this.

Overall: Rather than the back and forth emails about when someone is free, you can simply have them sign up for an open slot on your calendar via website, link or a pop-up widget, all of which look highly professional with a clean UI. I was able to cut down on the back and forth and get more phone meeting with clients due to the reduction in steps for scheduling an appointment.

Pros: I'm constantly scheduling meetings with new customers. Calendly has made scheduling so much simpler and avoided the monotonous back and forth emails trying to book appointments.

Cons: Obviously they have a freemium model, so there are some great features I'd love to have that are part of the premium version. Customizing the layout/theme of Calendly's page would be nice too.

Overall: Calendly allows me to send a simple link to all customers I have to book meetings with. This saves me so much time by avoiding additional email communication and streamline's our onboarding process.

I've used the free version for over a year now. Perfect

Pros: It's extremely easy and intuitive to setup and it's also easy to use. I love that anyone can sign up to chat with us at any time without any hassle or back-and-forth that just wastes time.

Cons: We use this product to find time to discuss with customers anything they want to bring up to us. If they are intimidated by this product then we don't get to talk to them, but we haven't seen any reason to believe this stops them from contacting us. It's just a concern we have more than a con.

Pros: I love the look and feel. When comparing the actual customer/client experience of Calendly next to other alternatives, it's always an easy choice in aesthetics alone.

Cons: I've had some issues integrating the scheduler into more complex environments. There weren't as many customized options for a multi-person team or for a complex web-page redirect in a funnel environment. These are things you'd want as a larger business that Calendly lacks in.

I have used Calendly to schedule clients efficiently.

Pros: Calendly is free if you don't mind using their branding and are only looking for 1 event scheduling type. This solution works great for my current business needs. What's great about Calendly is that you can send a link to someone and they can select an available time to meet. Once they do so, you will receive an email notification and the meeting will automatically show up on your integrated google calendar.

Cons: I wish the free option had some more of the features offered in the premium plan. The premium plan costs /month. For more complex appointment setting, this may be the way to go for users.

Cons: I find it is a bit fiddly to set up the available times when they are different on various weeks, however, spending time doing it helps to figure out the bits that aren't as intuiative as expected.

It has saved me a lot of time in back and forth with customers trying to find a mutually convenient time to talk, now they just click on the Calendly link in my email signature or website and in less than a minute they can select a time that works for them.

Cons: I am not a fan of the round dates in the customer-facing schedule, it's just a minor cosmetic thing but I wish that there was an alternate skin for it.

Pros: Well first, we use the free version, and it's very user friendly. It is very useful when it comes to scheduling high-volume meetings. For instance, we schedule 1:1 coaching sessions with our clients. With certain clients you are talking about 60 people. It is too cumbersome to exchange multiple emails with each individual person to find a time that works for both parties. It's helpful to just provide the availability and people can grab what's open. It saves time (by eliminating the back and forth email nonsense).

Cons: It would be great if it could somehow integrate it with our Outlook calendars. We will use calendly to get people scheduled, but we rely solely on our Outlook calendars to check for meetings, reminders, etc. People sometimes forget to go into calendly and look.

Overall: Definitely saving time as it relates to scheduling, because scheduling can take a LOT of time that could be better used elsewhere.

Pros: Incredibly easy to use, links right to your Google account. You can send the link to any of your clients so that they can add themselves to your calendar. Users can choose 15, 30, or 60 minute meetings. You receive email and pop up notifications so you never miss a meeting.

Cons: Limited options on the basic platform. You cannot use the "group" option unless you have a paid account which means you cannot allow multiple invitees to the same event.

Pros: If you hate the never ending "Let's meet, when are you available?" "Oh, I'm available now and then, but not then, what about you?" "Oh, I can do this and that time, which of those works best for you?" I think then works best if that's fine with you?" "Why yes, that works, let me send you one last email to confirm the time we have labored to settle upon in this abominable string of horrendously inefficient emails that utilizes a process that is barely better than the telegram." It's 2018. Why are people still doing this? If you're like me and want to see the world rid of the plague that is email meeting request chains, then take up your torch and set fire to this ancient practice and enjoy the satisfying feeling of symbolically watching every future email request chain go up in smoke (hey, chain smoke!).

Cons: It wasn't invented when email was invented, so people had to use the blunderously infernal back-and-forth method of scheduling emails for decades.

Overall: It makes scheduling meetings practically effortless.

Pros: I love Calendly, it is easy to use and have an excellent design. The program has helped us to schedule meetings in the office without going back and forth with our clients picking the right time.

You can also have team events, that help you to stay on the same time with your team.

Cons: Blocking dates on all calendars. If you have a day off or a vacation time you don't have an option to block that date in all the calendars.

Overall: I have recommended this product to other people. I am happy to have a tool like this to schedule meetings.

Pros: - simplifies my booking process for clients/vendors so that we can find a mutual time that works for them and avoids all the back and forth messaging to set up a call - I love that I can just put the link in my email signature or in an email and suggest people use it to find a time that works

Cons: - sometimes appointments get booked by clients or vendors that shouldn't be allowed per the rules in my settings. It's rare, but happens - settings aren't the most intuitive and it took me a while to get it set up the way I wanted. I don't have better constructive criticism as I set this up about 6 months ago and I don't remember what exactly was trouble, just that I had it

Cons: Some people don't like being on the other end of this tool and don't like scheduling through a bot - that is not Calendly's fault, but is something I run into with people here and there.

Pros: Really easy and quick to set up and link to your calendar/email account. Not difficult to figure out how to use. Setting up the rules regarding availability on your calendar is very straightforward.

Cons: The interaction between Calendly and the person who wants to schedule a meeting isn't the best. I've had a few customers respond back to me via email directly because they were confused on how to book a meeting.

Pros: Calendly is a simple to use scheduling application best suited for appointments. The free version allows for 1 event type to be used.

I love how simple and easy it is to use and set up. The interface is very intuitive for my clients and ensures I don't get double booked and customers are empowered to choose a time that works best for themselves.

Cons: Would be great to have more controls in place to help disperse appointments between days. Some of the more advanced settings are less intuitive to find and can be called out more.

Pros: Being able to offer clients the option to book a time for a call or meeting in addition to or rather than suggesting a time is terrific. By synchronizing with your calendar, you give the client the ability to commit to an available time and get it marked down on their calendar as well.

After setting up what types of meetings you'd like users to be able to book, this is largely a set-it-and-forget-it solution. The interface is stark (customizable branding is premium), but for the most part it looks good and is easy enough to use for most clients to figure out.

Cons: Integration with Google Calendar is free, but any further integrations are premium - understandable, but I would love to have Calendly schedule Zoom meetings without the need for licensing both solutions and Zapier. As it stands, you can have Calendly meetings default to Google Hangouts.

Overall: I'm able to provide my clients with my availability and the option to book a time on my calendar, so we don't have to go back and forth on when/where to meet.

Calendly has made is extremely easy to schedule meetings with clients and colleagues.

Pros: I love how easy it is to schedule trainings in with new customers. Before calendly, I had to manually check my calendar and then convert those availabilities into an email (SUPER time consuming when you're doing that 10-15 times a day!!!!) Now, it's linked to my calendar and I can send those available times off to customers. Also looks way more professional and organized on the customers end and diminishes all the back and forth emails. Love using Calendly!

Cons: The dashboard can certainly use a refresh, but nothing that would stop me from using it or recommending it to others.

Pros: Calendly integrates perfectly with Office365 and this plays right into my hands.This integration with office365 ensures whenever a client books a meeting with me ,the meeting appears on my Calender ; ensuring I am able to constantly put in my mind.
We have also recently introduced Calendly unto our website ,allowing customers to book 15 minute calls with a representative ,at anytime of the day.

Cons: I wish Calendly will allow me to have much more control of the details of every meeting.Right now ,I can only type a few words.

Pros: It's very simple to understand and use and it isn't very "Salesy" meaning you can use it to schedule time with prospects, to share with your family and schedule a vacation, to send to students and create your calendar, etc. Super non-invasive, easy to use, helpful and clean product.

Cons: Don't like that you have to essentially start over everything you need to change something. Every page is unique, so you can't just readjust a time-zone or chosen time-slot, you have to go all the way to back to your previous page and start over.

Overall: Makes scheduling a time with anyone, for anything, extremely simple.

Pros: I like the fact that clients can schedule their own appointments without the back-and-forth of calls or emails to discuss availability. If something comes up they can also cancel and reschedule all within the tool.

Cons: I have experienced that clients are often confused once they select a time for their appointment. If they are in a different time zone than me, the time they get back in there confirmation email is often not in their time zone although the time they selected is correct.

Pros: This program makes it easy and fast for other people to set time up on my calendar. This helps avoid the back and forth to see what time works best for others, you can just send out the link and they can choose the time that works best for them.

Cons: Some options are limited, you have to be careful about making sure that your calendar is updated. It would be nice if you could put more controls in place so that everyone doesn't choose the same day.

Overall: Fast and easy way to get others to set up time on your calendar with minimal effort.

I mostly appreciate how user-friendly it is and that you can adjust the settings accordingly so your calendar doesn't get filled back to back if you don't want that.

Cons: Sometimes it seems that people get confused when you share the link with them, in which cases I end up scheduling them directly by sharing availability.

Pros: Calendly is simple, free (for 1 calendar event type), and makes my life a lot easier. As a recruiter I'm constantly scheduling phone calls with people, and was really tired of the back and forth. I tried out Assistant.to, and even X.ai for an AI driven appointment scheduler, and just came away unimpressed. If there are times to click IN the email, or the AI has to go back and forth - people seem confused and the process just ends up taking longer.

With Calendly, it's simple enough that people understand it and I almost never have someone have a problem with it. I just say book a time here, and put in my link then boom a few minutes later it's on my calendar.

Has saved me a lot of time with the back and forth of scheduling, and fortunately all I schedule day in and day out is phone screens so I can get by on the free software for now.

Cons: Some of the settings for your calendar control are a little hidden and unintuitive. For example, I didn't have a 15 minute gap between calls for a long time because I didn't see the setting and didn't bother to go digging for it for awhile.

Overall: I save a lot of time using this tool, and it makes my email life a lot simpler (no more 5 emails back and forth to figure out a time)

Pros: Ease of integration with Google calendar, simple and quick event design & customization. The ability to clone an event and just change one part of it, such as date and/or location, was a real worksaver.

Cons: More color choices to distinguish events from each other. These are highlighter colors so I realize they can't be solid colors. Maybe some other method of distinguishing events, like emojis.

Overall: Makes it very easy for people to plug themselves into my calendar without having to reach me in a timely manner by phone, text or email.

Pros: Calendly was super simple and easy to use, anyone with a computer could use it within 1 minute. A about 3 clicks in and you got the job done.

Cons: Calendly just seems like a more built out version of Google Calendar, you don't have to manage all the contacts so thats nice but beyond managing your contacts and schedules it doesn't do a lot more than that. Other scheduling software bares in mind round robin style schedules so large sales floor can keep an equal amount of meetings going from SDR to AE. This is important at our organization but not be huge to others.

Pros: When I was getting interviews for interns and potential hires to come in- calendly saved me hours of back and forth and headaches. I've always hated trying to figure out someone else's schedule and it's even worse when someone can't remember what their own plans are. Putting a calendar system in place others to work around me has been great. I got sales guys using it at the last 2 companies I've worked with and it's changed the way they do business as well. I can't imagine going without it now.

Cons: Of course it;s not free but I wish it was a little cheaper. I think additional integrations in slack and FB would be cool. I love the idea of being able to use it via a chatbot but realistically your product works great and I've been happy with it.

Pros: My favorite feature that Calendly provides is the ability to setup team scheduling. Being able to setup a link for clients to schedule a call with an entire team's availability, that is then assigned by round robin, and is fully integrated with everyone's google calendar rocks! I highly recommend Calendly as a great scheduling tool. It has a clean and easy to use interface and very good integration options.

Cons: I only ran into a small bump with my time zone settings, but the Calendly support team was fast and friendly to help me get it fixed. It was somewhat cumbersome when I tried to provide a feature request idea I emailed to the support team. Instead of the support person gathering and passing along the idea, I was sent a link to a 'General Products Ideas' where I was instructed to find an idea similar to mine in a giant list to be able to include it.

Pros: It saves time and confusion. I hate chatting with people trying to find a time and date that fits both parties, in order to book a meeting or call. Calendly solves this with a simple link you can share with anybody. No more "are you free tomorrow?" or "does Monday work for you?". Just send a link and let people book you when they are free and so are you. All times are displayed in your local timezone, which is great to avoid missing bookings.

Cons: The settings interface could be simpler to use. They recently updated the way you set up your booking availability and it's been great. They could revise other parts of the setting process as well.

Pros: Calendly helps you save a ton of time (through email correspondence, trying to find a time that works for both parties, etc) by giving you an easy link for people to book a time with you in your calendar. You can set up different lengths of meetings (i.e. a 30 min meeting, 1 hour meeting, etc) and it automatically syncs with your calendar availability. The person booking the meeting can then cancel or reschedule if needed, learn everything they need to know about the meeting (location, etc), and you can even require them to fill out custom pre-set questions upon booking as well (i.e. "how did you hear about us?").

Cons: Calendly seems to be ideal for individuals, not teams, as it can only sync with one calendar. If you want someone to book a session/meeting that is more "general" and not tied to a specific individual, this isn't the best app for you.

Pros: Calendly has a nice interface. Your scheduling page/options can easily be shared with others to make scheduling easier. It also provides automated reminders.

Cons: The functionality is lacking. Simple features like being able to change a meeting location after the meeting has been booked are not currently available.

Pros: Calendly makes it really easy to set up meetings. I no longer have to figure out via email or phone with a client what's the best time to meet. They just simply go to my calendar and pick the best available option. It saves a ton of time.

You can customize your availability however you want. It is absolutely flexible on that and it is time-zone smart. I usually talk to people sitting in every continent. It makes it easy for them to translate the options into their timezones.

Additionally, calendly is fully integrated with my calendar apps. Both iCal and Google calendar work perfectly with it. For example, it automaticaly blocks the spots when you create events from other platforms.

Cons: Calendly is really good and is really easy to use. I don't dislike anything to be honest. Maybe the UX of the dashboard can be improved, but it is not a deal breaker.

Overall: Before calendly I remember that there usually was more than 4 emails going back and forth just trying to find a feasible option for the parties involved. Today I just give them a link and they pick whatever available spot they find in my calendar which works best for them, so they make their own choices. That results in a lot of less no-shows.

Additionally when people want to have a conversation with me and someone else from my company, instead of going back-and-forth in emails trying to figure out options for 3 people, I can just send them a link with a merged calendar showing them only the options that work for me and my co-worker.

Pros: What I liked about the idea of this software was you could automate scheduling in your emails. As a chiropractic office our business thrives on getting patients scheduled for appointments, so anyway we can make that easier is a bonus.

Cons: The problem with this software was I found it wasnt overly user friendly. I got confused on how to get the links to work in my email and connect it to my software.

Overall: Didnt see the benefits

Pros: Is it so easy for my occasional clients to set up video conference calls or one-on-one counseling calls, or group meetings with my company and our various producers spread between Tx and Ca.

One link, and it sends the appointment to my email AND Google calendar, and has a feature that allows the client to reschedule if needed. Another huge plus is the buffering. I can allow for meetings and calls that run extra long. This is very flexible and I can change it on a daily basis.

Set up is fast and easy, you can have multiple events that can be scheduled.

And that's the free account. If you upgrade, you can integrate with many apps and even book paid appointments through the system (Stripe only, tho).

Cloud based, so you don't have to download (yet another) android app. That's a big plus for me, as I do 95% of my work in a browser on a PC.

I have yet to need to contact their customer support, so I gave then 5 stars there, as I find it easy to use.

Cost to use is quite low, compared to other scheduling websites.

Cons: One big issue I have is, I use Opera as my main browser and it dislikes Google. So to use Calendy you need to use Chrome or Firefox to set things up and access all the features.

This is more of a Google issue, not Calendy.

In the paid appointment extra, they only take "Stripe" - if they ever add Square then it'll be well rounded out.

Payment for the level you want is on an annual basis, not month-to-month, so I consider that a negative.

Overall: Almost too numerous to list. I even use it to schedule meetings with producers about projects, not just my counseling clients. Custom links, buffering and limit to events per day. Its awesome!

Pros: Easy to use, easy to configure, one of the best when you are a team that work together on an activity.

Cons: The biggest problem is lack of "integration" with Google Analytics. We are not able to track our success or lack of the same driving our customers to set up training or demo sessions. Many customers has been requesting this from Calendly for more than 1,5 year .. but still no plans to implement. This force us to find an alternative.

Pros: I just love Calendly! One of my peers told me about Calendly so I tried the free version that very day. Let's just say I've saved so much time from getting away from back and forth emails about scheduling a meeting. I simply send my Calendly link with what's open on my calendar and my clients just schedule. Plus it's such a cheap software, and it's worth it. If you don't have this you are not using your resources.

Overall: Saves me time, keeps my calendar in order. Allows people to cancel or reschedule their meeting.

Pros: I like that Calendly is very visually pleasing, especially in its integration with my website. The fact that you can click on a day of the week and choose an available time feels so nice and professional.

Cons: I only use the free version of Calendly at the moment and it does exactly what I need it to do. It would be nice to upgrade eventually because the free version does not send reminders to you or your client about the scheduled meeting.

Pros: It eliminates the need to go back and forth with clients or even team members to be able to book a time for something.

Cons: It only allows you to have 1 type of appointment for the basic level of the software which I was hoping would be a bit higher.

Overall: It saves time in the booking process. We use it for our training program to have applicants sign up for different aspects of their onboarding.

Pros: Calendly has been an absolute lifesaver for me. I started using it a few weeks ago because we've been running a little shorthanded in our HR department and I needed something to help facilitate interview scheduling. Previously, I had been scheduling interviews the old-fashioned way -- that is, by playing phone tag with candidates. Calendly has made it so I can blast out some emails and then the software does the rest of the work. It has seamlessly synced with my Outlook calendar with its plugin and now I wait to see my calendar slots fill out up without having to do the front-end work.

On top of all of this, Calendly was the most cost-friendly solution I could find like this, and the only one that offered a viable free option. I plan to continue to utilize Calendly and am excited to see what other ways I can use it.

Overall: Calendly has allowed us to more efficiently schedule meetings with individuals outside our organization -- specifically scheduling job interviews with our recruiting team.

Pros: What I like the most about this software is that it is beautifully designed, which is very important to me being a webdesigner. My clients see the tool that I'm using to interact with them as mine so... the look is very important. Of course, design is in addition to the great functionalities.

Cons: I would like to be able to customize it more than it is currently possible and would appreciate to be able to organize events by type.

Overall: Calendly is perfectly integrated with the other tools I'm already using in my business.

Cons: It took a little bit of a learning curve for me but that is because I would not consider my self a "techie". However, that being said, I was able to figure it out through utilizing the help feature and testing.

Overall: It helped me automate the qualification and scheduling of appointments with prospects.

Pros: - Saves an enormous amount of time scheduling calls
- Slots people into times of day that are most ideal for me to speak
- Very simple interface for choosing a time

Cons: - Cannot email multiple people on receiving end of appointment-making (e.g. only I receive a notification someone scheduled on my Calendly. Would be nice if a team member could be added
- Rescheduling function doesn't delete old appointment, or provide a prompt to ask if you'd want to
- There is no temporary scheduling of events (I think?) which would be useful

Overall: - Saves an enormous amount of time scheduling calls. I rave about it all the time to other people. Who flashes their Calendly first has become a thing! And there's certain etiquette about not giving it to someone who is 'higher status' than you, which is interesting.

Pros: Very easy to setup. Doesn't take long to setup the system to allow your clients to schedule out times to meet with you.

Cons: There aren't any cons that I can personally think of. We did have an issue once when trying to setup appointments for a trade show we went to but I think it was user error and wasn't caused by the application.

Overall: We were able to quickly and efficiently set up appointments.

I use Calendly to book meetings easily and without the back-and-forth hassle of comparing schedules.

Pros: Calendly allows you to link your calendar and share your available times (per your desires) to those trying to request a meeting. It is impossibly easy to share the link with those wanting to set up a meeting. Once a time is chosen, the meeting can automatically be integrated into both parties calendars for a seamless scheduling experience.

Cons: The only dislike I have about Calendly is that sometimes I get duplicate meeting additions to my calendar (one from a download and one emailed directly).

Overall: Meeting scheduling is streamlined; you get what you want done faster!

Pros: It is a great tool to schedule meetings, either regularly or when you need to schedule a bunch of meetings at once. Great for setting up interviews with job candidates, or for allowing clients to have a window of time at-a-glance to set up a meeting.

Cons: The interface can be a little tricky as it is not always super intuitive to figure out how to change certain features. I wish that you would be allowed more than one meeting option in the free version.
