Pros: TheThe best thing about Calendly is the ability to set schedules for specific event types! You can set blackout dates, available times, control meeting lengths, automatically add buffer time, limit the number of events scheduled for a single day, and more. This is perfect for setting up live events or meetings on an ongoing basis, but giving yourself enough heads up and flexibility to be in control. You basically give prospective customer the freedom to choose a date and time--but ensure that it fits in your schedule, too. Use this to schedule live demos with clients, training events, or even webinars. It's a great tool, especially for small sales teams that need a controlled flow of sales calls/demos.

Cons: Calendly is restrictive in analytics; for instance, I can't easily see how many people clicked to schedule an event, but didn't follow through. It's also difficult from a user interface standpoint. I find myself looking for settings and menus that are hidden within the slick, clean interface. On the scheduling side, it's pretty easy for clients to schedule events, but you can't customize the date picker--and that's really unfortunate, because I'd like to use it in more places but can't customize the look and feel or functionality.

Overall: If you schedule live events with clients on a regular basis, Calendly provides a clean interface to easily show others your available time slots and allow them to schedule an event. This has proved invaluable for our sales team to do live demos with prospects and not get too many scheduled at once. It also has allowed us to not schedule demos back to back without buffer time in between. That's huge!

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: Scheduling meetings is easy, and I don't ever have to rely on coordinating crazy google calendars with people. If you are setting it up for yourself to have people schedule meetings with you, it's easy to block out times that you are available or unavailable. It's also really great if you work with teams across different time zones as it takes your timezone into account when scheduling times with person/or vice versa, overall it's just one less thing to worry about.

Another super handy feature is the ability to request certain information from the person booking time with you. This makes it easy to request an agenda about the meeting or to perhaps ask a series of questions for recurring meetings with people.

Cons: The only problem I've had is mostly user error. As the one requesting a meeting, I wish there was an easier way to add calendar events to your calendar. I have on a few occasions forgot to add the scheduled time to my calendar (the option is there, I've just missed it a few times) would be awesome if it was automagically added some way to your Google Cal. :)

Overall: We've been using Calendly for a little over 6 months at my company. This app makes finding times to meet with colleagues an absolute breeze. Working at a remote company with 90+ people, and specifically on a team of about 20, searching for available time slots in Google Calendar can be VERY time-consuming and challenging. With Calendly you are instantly shown the times available for the person you'd like to meet with. You can choose a time, and instantly add it to your Google Calendar. It sends them a reminder to their calendar as well.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are scheduling time with someone, be sure to follow the last step and add it to your calendar, so you don't forget! :) If you are setting up times to have people schedule time with you, be sure to play with the timing a bit. For example, you may want to add more intentional blocks of time in your day with no meetings, or if you work with folks in different time zones, you may want to have availability to account for that.

Pros: I really love how flexible Calendly has to offer, if you need a one-on-one Schedule, Calendly can give you that.

If you have a Team and you need them to schedule a meeting with your Prospects, Calendly has your Team.

If you need one member of your Team to schedule a separate meeting with your other member, Calendly will help you do that.

The integrations are also great, you can integrate Calendly with other meeting software like Zoom for a discovery call, GoToMeeting for Webinars, or even monetize discovery calls with their integration for PayPal or Stripe. Calendly will have those integrated easily.

I cannot stress enough how Calendly can customize your experience if you love certain Branding to be removed or to add, Calendly can do it for you.

There's so much to say but one thing stood out for me, the Timezone is already integrated with the Timezone of your Prospects, meaning, no more late, no-show meetings.

Cons: As much as I love Calendly, there are certain features that I don't like, well, every Software isn't perfect and we do have different take and opinion.

The Availability function to your Calendar, this is for me is confusing, you need to highlight first the day you want to be available until the date of your availability. I just wish Calendly can have a feature where you can just input a certain Date up until your Availability, more like a drop-down menu.

But that's just me, I still love how easy to use this software.

Overall: I love the simple UI and UX of this Software.

Pros: I can share my calendly link with clients and contractors and they can easily schedule a meeting on my calendar without me having to be involved. It is user friendly for them and seamless for me. It requires no attention or maintenance on my part. You can connect calendly to your current calendar so that your availability automatically syncs as you make changes to your day. And this platform is highly workable for all of my needs without having to use a paid version! There are tons of customizations you can set, such as a buffer time to allow for travel between meetings, automatically blocking off or allowing specific times for each day of the week, disallowing bookings within __ hours, etc.

Cons: The ability to figure how exactly where and how to adjust all of the setup preferences is a little quirky. Some of the settings are "hidden" as sub-sections under other preference pages. I took a good bit of time setting and navigating through all of the customization options, but now that those are set, I don't have to think about or touch anything to keep Calendly working for me. With the free version, you can only have 1 meeting time for clients to choose from (for example, using my link, clients only have the option to schedule a 45 minute meeting with me). This is actually preferable to me though, as I don't want my clients to have to make more choices or spend more time in Calendly than needed. Using the free version keeps things simple.

Overall: Each person in our company has a unique calendly link included under their email signature and available to share with clients as the need for a meeting arises. We save TONS of time using calendly and no longer waste time checking calendars, adjusting time zones, emailing back and forth, receiving responses after the proposed dates have passed, worrying we might double book, asking for phone numbers or addresses, etc. When a client schedules through calendly, the event apprears in Gmail with the location included and links to cancel or reschedule if needed. Everything we need "magically appears" without us having to lift a finger. Great asset to our work life and productivity!

Pros: When I first learned about Calendly I was sceptical a bit, as I did not know what to expect. Also, I doubted I need another application for a calendar. I had Outlook, didn't I? Well it turns out, that when you need to arrange meetings with people external to your company, it can be a bit tedious processes, especially, when doing so over email.

Once I had a need indeed to arrange for a meeting but did not want to play the email ping-pong to find the right time. I then created a free Calendly account. You know what? I loved it. It's really easy to register and set up. Arranging a meeting is really simple with this tool. You just set up your availability in a clever way, even when you work in shift patterns you can set different availability on different days.

So how does it work? You tell the app what time you are available on what days, you link your calendar and predefine time slots, e.g. 15, 30, 60 minute slots. You share your Calendly link to the party you want to meet with and they can book a slot in your calendar, of course considering events that are already there. Your events are not visible, only time slots are visible. Very simple, yet extremely effective. You don't have to exchange emails to find the right time to meet.

Cons: There aren't many downsides, the main downside for me is that the free account allows you to only predefine one time slot, e.g. 30 minute. This means, that when somebody wants to meet with you, they will only have a chance to save a 30 minute window in your calendar. If you want more options, you have to pay 8 bucks a month or 12 for the pro version. There are many extra options, but if you want something extra, you have to pay extra. Free of charge version is very good, especially when you meet externally only occasionally. For me the free version is just fine. I definitely recommend Calendly to anyone who meets with clients and other external parties. You can always get the free version and decide later whether or not to upgrade.

Overall: I honestly recommend Calendly to anyone who meets with external parties. This is one of those small things, that you had no idea existed, but once you start using it you never want to go back. It really can save you a lot of time and facilitate arranging meetings.

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.

The best scheduling tool I have ever used!

Pros: It has made my work life incredibly easier. Earlier I used to go back and forth in emails trying to find a common time and even when we managed to set up a meeting there were other issues like one party often forgetting to set up reminders etc. Calendly fixed all of that in a moment. I can set up my availability and sync it with my Outlook calendar. And just by using a link anyone can book a time slot with me. Like I said it syncs with Outlook beautifully so you dont have to worry about being "double booked". It also adds a reminder to you calendar automatically so you get notifications and dont miss any calls.

Its such a useful software that I honestly cant imagine going back to a point where I was not using it. It saves me a ton of time and a lot of back and forth emails.

Cons: I wish there was a way to integrate it with some of my meeting tools (video conference software I use for example). It does integrate with a few and offers API as far as I know but having ready to deploy solutions instead of API would be nice.

Not a major negative though. It works with Outlook and that is what most people would need 99% of the time.

Overall: One word - Amazing. It is super easy to set up. And after that you can edit your availability by just logging in. It is incredibly efficient and you will forget its even there at times. Very hands off but very functional.

Pros: The design was the first thing that got me attracted to Calendly, actually. I first saw it while booking an online appointment myself, and it actually was a good thing that the "host" was not using the paid version, because it was thanks to the branding that was included that I could research more about it. I was about to knock one star on my review for "value for money" because the free version comes with everything you need, and depending on the use, the branding might not be such a big deal for some people. So, there actually is quite a bit of value provided on the free version, so they should get the star for delivering it free of charge.

I love the fact that events can be edited and that they get their own custom URL, which I can share with prospective clients over the e-mail or text messages and they just book the time that works best for them through there. I also like that the local time is always converted to whatever the user needs to see, getting rid of eventual timing differences or errors in calculation. This is a very helpful tool!

Cons: There are no real cons for me since even with the free version, you get most (if not all) the functionalities you might need. I tried to come up with something for the sake of this review, but... no "cons" for me.

Overall: I use this daily to have prospective clients schedule online appointments for us to speak over the phone or through video conferences.

Pros: It is a phenomenally good scheduling tool. If you have worked in a large team or an office before you know how much of a nightmare trying to schedule meetings can be. Sending back and forth emails just find a common time slot can take up a significant amount of time. God forbid you have to do it multiple times a day.

Calendly is a really elegant solution to this problem. Just set up your availability inside the tool and then you can send people a link using which they can see when you are available and book a time slot with you. And the best part is that it syncs and integrates beautifully with your Outlook calendar. Just download their desktop utility and it automatically hooks into your outlook to ensure there are no conflicts of time slots.

It lets you automate a significant chunk of your time that you would spend trying to set up meetings.

It is such a good tool that I dont think I can ever go back to doing things the old way.

Cons: The initial set up can be a little confusing. Their web interface is a little clunky. Also I would like to see more integration options. I havent had a chance to use their API though, perhaps that solves the integration problem.

Overall: Its fantastic! It is one of those tools where once you start using it you will think "How did I used to get by without it". And since you can use it for free, I can highly recommend that you at least give it a shot.

Calendly puts more time in my hands.

Pros: Simplicity is what I like the most as a Calendly user.Calendly makes it straightforward and simple for partners to find a free time to meet with me at the office or talk to me over the phone,without necessarily first calling me to confirm if I am free.

It doesn't matter what country the partner fixing a meeting is based,he/she is shown my available time in his/her local timezone.Calendlys sms reminder further ensures that after scheduling meeting appointments,my partners do not miss the scheduled appointment by reminding them about the appointment via a text message,one hour before they are scheduled to meet with me.

Cons: Calendly meets all of my expectation from a scheduling software and offers me functionalities beyond what I even need.

Overall: Calendly addresses the problem of finding a time when I am free,while trying to fix appointments with my business partners.

Since I started using Calendly,I have been able to save time for other productive activity, off the time I normally would had expended on back and forth email exchanges,in a bid to find the perfect time for a meeting.

There are very few 'life savers' out there, but calendly is one of them.

Pros: I started using their free one meeting type for about a week before it was worth the money for unlimited meeting type. It is super easy to organize the many meetings I host and keeps my calendar from becoming a Jackson Pollock painting.

I do a lot of hiring and training for my company. The hiring process has multiple steps to it and even after we hire someone I have to meet with them for their orientation. I do most of my work online and I don't have a secretary doing anything for me. Calendly lets me create multiple meetings with different availability. If a time spot is taken then it removes my availability for that time in all my other event types. Its fantastic and my job and life have become more organized because of it.

Cons: They came out with an app recently. Sadly, its complete garbage. Their mobile website is better than their app currently and I think they might know it. I deleted their app hours after it was installed, because it made the service harder to use.

I also really didn't like a survey they sent me asking about what other apps and meeting software I use and it was really forward about asking me about how they should price their services and at what point would the cost not be worth the service. There is a good chance I wouldn't like their culture if I got to know them better.

Pros: I have people scheduling appointments with me on a daily basis,and I have also had to schedule appointments with people using Calendly on a few occasion.Therefore I have experienced both sides of Calendly and I feel it is a pleasant and time saving solution.

Nothing beats being able to send an email to a client and simply stating "please schedule a meeting via this link" as against having to put back and forth calls across to people,before scheduling a meeting and on some occasions ; the other party forgets a meeting was even scheduled.

I love Calendly for how it has saved me time,and also how it reminds both sides of an existing scheduled appointment : thereby reducing the chance of any party to a scheduled appointment missing it.

Cons: I like every part of Calendly and I have never questioned my choice of this program.

Overall: Calendly enable me fix appointments with customers either for video conference,over the phone or physical meetings without the stress and time wastage which usually accompanies the appointment scheduling process.

Calendly let me manage my time at work efficiently.

Pros: I like how Calendly synchronizes with my Google Calendar ,thus automatically updating all scheduled appointments on Google Calendar as scheduling occurs on my Calendly page.

Calendly forwards text message reminders to parties who have a scheduled appointment with me,one hour before the appointment is due to start.This ensures they are unlikely to forget about appointment and thus will only miss such appointments for other reasons ,rather than because they forgot.

Cons: There is no way for multiple people to schedule the same time for an appointment with me. This kind of functionality comes into play on occasions when I am having group meetings with different people at the same time and will want them to schedule an appointment on Calendly,so that they are reminded of the event.

Overall: Official appointments scheduling.Using Calendly ensures I always have access to a list of people I am meant to meet on a daily basis and allow me better plan my time and delegate tasks.

Pros: Calendly makes it super easy for me to organise customer interviews. I can set up events that relate to various topics that me and my team are interested in finding out more about, and as customers engage with us on various topics that match I can send them a calendly link for that specific event via email - which for anyone who has dealt with the insane back and forth involved in scheduling a time knows, is a way more respectful use of my time and theirs. I like that there has been a lot of thought put into the various optionalities that you may need every so often, for instance, being able to set 'bumper time' between schedule events so that you are not caught out in back to back events. The ability to grab additional information on even sign up has been invaluable for helping context set before I go into an interview by known a little bit about who I will be speaking with, their role and how they typically use our product.

Cons: My only gripe is that I found it difficult to differentiate my events on the dashboard, as they are represented by very small cards. I only have about 4 or 5 event types at any given time, so the poor use of space really stands out to me. This is exacerbated by the fact that I use many similar titles because all my event types relate to the same product and are all customer interviews. Lastly (maybe this exists but I haven't found it) I wish that a recurring event type would also put a block in my calendar so that team members do not book during that time. I would rather always use those blocks to talk with customers and push team meetings to other parts of my day. Currently I am doing this manually, which is fine, just could be more seamless.

Overall: Easy calendar invite management for customer interviews and external meeting organisation

A simple scheduling tool that makes it easy to plan and organize online appointments.

Pros: The interphase and design is simple yet elegant. I am able to customize it with my company's logo, colors, and additional texts. I love the way the timeslots are displayed, as well as the cirlces for the days in the calendar. By adding it to Gmail, it is really easy to keep track of appointments because they get automatically added to my Google calendar. This way I can organize my online meetings with my real-life commitments making sure that I have plenty of availability for each.

Cons: I tried thinking about a "con" but I have nothing. It does what it should, and it handles appointments seamlessly! When I hadn't signed up to the paid plan the branding was displayed, which is normal for any free tool that unleashes its full functionality for non-paying users (at least, see the branding, right?).

Overall: I use it to setup online Skype meetings and phone calls with prospective clients, by sharing custom event links with them through the e-mail.

Pros: Calendly really is a set it and forget it product! It takes no time at all to set up an account and get started. It's so easy for our team to use, and it's effortless for our clients as well. You don't even have to think about it once it's set up, because it works so seamlessly. With a click of a button, a client or prospect can book a meeting without the hassle of a back-and-forth "what time works best for you?" conversation. We've saved so much wasted time and headache implementing this product!

Cons: There are really no cons. It's affordable, easy to set up and implement, painless to use, and our clients love it!

Overall: We've been able to shave off hours and even days of wasted time trying to set up phone calls. With Calendly, a client can easily see availability and select whichever time works best for them. You can also set parameters so that you only get call requests when you want them. This platform is a no brainer for anyone who works with clients or prospects!

Pros: Calendly sports a fine suite of tools to help you achieve your scheduling goals. From individual schedules to Team schedules that can be fine tuned to schedule using a round robin feature or set who gets more than the other. You can also create your own URLs to keep different types of schedules organized and easy to share with clients. Lastly, they offer you a script so you can display the calendar right on your website and everything is integrated with Office 365 just by signing in.

Cons: This software can be difficult to set up as individual and teams work separately and you have to create the events on each one separately. I've had to contact support for help many times because the UI just doesn't make sense to a new user and even as an experienced user you can easily make mistakes in the setup so there is a bit of trial and error.

Overall: Overall the software works as expected and I have and will continue to recommend this software to my colleagues. The setup and UI does need some work but overall and with the monthly cost, this software works better, has more features and costs less than many competitors.

Calendly wins me extra time on a daily basis.

Pros: I use Calendly to let people book meetings with me easily ,without the merry-go-round process of exchanging multiple phone calls and emails just to schedule a few minutes meeting.

I like that it integrates well with my Google Calendar ,therefore saving all of my events on my Google Calendar.Thus for every time Calendly notifies people I am meant to have a meeting with about their scheduled meetup with me ,my Calendar also reminds me about the scheduled event.

Cons: Calendly does not have a mobile app. on the Android playstore. Why a Calendly mobile app. may not serve many uses,I still have to logon to my Calendly account once in a while to check up on past event information and will rather prefer doing it on an app.

Overall: Since I started using Calendly over two year ago,there has been no need to constantly check a physical Calendar on my table trying to find open time for a meeting.This has earned me extra productive time.

Absolutely makes me more productive.

Pros: I like that Calendly assigns me a personalized Calendly link which I get to create myself ,thereby making it memorable for me to direct partners ,friends and customers to it ,to enable them fix an appointment with me.

I find it very affordable ,both for individuals and organizations alike. The sms reminder notification system is a great part of Calendly and it has ensured everyone I have got an appointment with ,gets a text message an hour before the appointment, reminding them of their scheduled appointment with me.

Cons: Nothing. Calendly should be used by all professionals.

Overall: I use Calendly for appointment scheduling.My use of Calendly has greatly reduced the number of people who miss their appointments with me,simply because they forgot. Calendly has saved me a whole lot of time by removing the back and forth emailing process,which used to be a necessary but time-consuming part of scheduling appointments with me.

I couldn't run my business without Calendly. Seriously.

Pros: Setting appointments is quite possibly one of the most tedious and time consuming parts of anyone's day. With Calendly (I pay for a premium plan) I can set as many custom appointment types as a I need and just pass out links to the people I need to meet with. Scheduling an interview with a potential hire? Here's a link. Brainstorming with a partner on a new project? Here's another link. Want to meet for coffee in person on Thursday? Sure. Pick a time using this link. It's essential and saves all the needless back and forth and wasted time of trying to manually find a mutually convenient time.

Cons: Calendly does not have an option to auto-redirect the person booking an appointment to another page. That means you can't accurately track conversions when running a campaign where the goal is a booked appointment. Considering that a page redirect is one of the simplest javascript functions to implement there's no excuse for not having provided this functionality to their users, when its nearly a default for any of their competitors. The only reason I keep using them vs. another tool is because they have the best UI, which I feel reflects well on me when sending a link to a booking out to someone.

Pros: Email scheduling (back and forth) is a waste of everyone's time. With Calendly, I am able to say, "please let me serve you by giving access to my live calendar and we can prevent the usual back and forth that transpires with email scheduling). I also like the reminder features (email and texting) and the onboarding class (best practices) really helped me to set and forget with minor update and changes. I started with free, went to premium, and today upgraded to Professional. It has definetly given me my time back and brought a level of professional automation that compliments my business model.

Cons: There is no affiliate or referral program. Because folks love my scheduling system, I have referred a bunch of folks this past year and it would have been a nice customer/affiliate touch if there was discounts or referral savings off a subscription. I have written to them about it and the suggestion was shelved. I would be more intentional about referring if there was incentives.

The answer to all your scheduling problems.

Pros: The thing I like most about Calendly is how much time it saves me on a daily basis. Setting up a meeting or a conference used to take multiple back and forth emails to try to find a common available time. And then I used to have to deal with the problem of working with people in different time zones. Calendly solved that problem by simply letting me set up what times I am available and letting others book a time slot by just clicking on a link. The other great thing about Calendly is that it syncs with my Outlook so I never end up with issues where I might have set up multiple meetings at the same time. Its amazing.

Cons: Their website is a little confusing to navigate. So it can take a little time to set things up. Or if you have set things up once, it will take a little fiddling around to change those settings. Its not a major negative though because that is not something you will be dealing with daily.

Overall: I have come to depend on Calendly like few other softwares. It just works. I love it!

Pros: I like the Calendly easy to use interface. My clients use Calendly to book appointments with me ; allowing them pick meeting time and date ,depending on times when Calendly shows me as available.

With Calendly ,I get to have multiple meetings setup with different time schedule and duration ,and none of my meetings or appointment ever gets to overlap with each other.

My clients receive automated email reminders ,ensuring they do not miss their appointments , with the option to reschedule an appointment with just a few clicks and everybody gets an email to confirm a meeting reschedule or cancellation.

Cons: I have had issues making older clients use Calendly to book meetings with me. They always prefer to call me directly on phone ,over using Calendly. So maybe Calendly does not appeal to the older generation.

Pros: My days can be very busy and filled with meetings, phone calls, emails and other tasks which can be difficult to keep track when your next appointment will be. There are times when some stockbrokers can't meet me face-to-face and would rather communicate by a video call. Calendly provides the option of scheduling video conference calls. Whether we have group sessions or one-one calls, Calendly is able to set-up all your appointments. I also like the fact that it syncs in with my calendar and sends me reminders. A cool perk is that it saves everything on the cloud. Overall, a very user-friendly program.

Cons: Don't have any major issues with this software. My only concern is when other people schedule appointments with me using another software, and I wish they too could use Calendly.

Pros: Easily share your availability with external partners. You can be as restrictive or as open as you'd like when sharing your calendar. You can set times when you are never available and you can black out entire days. Easy to send a link to your entire calendar to someone. Rather than typing out your availability, you can just send them a link and your availability will display. If you have a previous commitment, the time block will not be available to select. When meeting times are selected, your connected calendar is updated automatically and you are notified via email. Likewise, if someone cancels a meeting created through Calendly, it is removed from the connected calendar and both parties are notified.

Cons: The free version limits you to one calendar connection. I can't use my outlook calendar and my google calendar so users have to be careful that their main calendar is up-to-date with any other calendar they are using. Sending links via email, particularly to people you might not be familiar with can be viewed suspiciously. When I first started using it, I went to great lengths to ensure the recipient knew it was a valid link and they were safe to continue through the process.

Overall: Love the product, it has been very helpful as I deal with many folks outside our office. I get asked for my availability almost daily and manually typing out my availability or sending a screenshot of my calendar led to other issues. This tool makes it very easy to send my available times to internal and external constituents alike.

Pros: Calendly is very much straight forward and easy to use.I love how I get to integrate Calendly with my icloud calendar , therefore making sure I am never booked twice by clients and customers.

Also the ability to set buffer time frame between one schedule and another ,has ensured I am able to create provision for meetings continuing beyond their pre-planned time schedule.While also sorting out time zone differences between my organization and clients ,ensuring there is no confusion and all parties pick the correct time in their own time zone.

Cons: We have received very few complaints from some of our clients ,complaining they did not receive a reminder notification from Calendly. I woudn't know how true this was, or probably the email ended up in their spambox.

Pros: I've been looking for alternatives for a long time, not because I'm disappointed, but because competition is inevitable. But it seems anyone in this space just isn't as good. Not only does Calendly offer the best free option for individuals who just need a quick way to give their customers and contacts the ability to easily book a meeting with them, but the premium offering is the best out there. For teams, you can create shared calendars, shared appointment types, co-operative appointments, and even round-robin for sales teams and customer service teams. Simply the best tool out there.

Cons: There's not much to dislike. I think their marketing site is short selling the potential of the product, and upon initial visit, it's a little unclear all of what you can do with the product. It's great that they have free basic accounts, but it would be better if you could really test or demo the premium stuff.

Pros: We often set up meetings with potential clients at our business. One of the biggest annoyances has been how many back and forth emails have to go through to set up one meeting. Getting two people to sync up their calendar can be a problem. Try having multiple people do it and its a nightmare.

Calendly was the perfect solution for this problem. You can set up your availability calender and people can then book meetings with you by just clicking on your calendly link. And the best part is it syncs right with your outlook. So any meetings that are set up in Calendly immediately reflect in outlook and any meetings set up in Outlook are blocked out on your Calendly availability so people dont book that slot.

This set up saved us so many back and forth emails trying to find a common time slot. Now we just send a Calendly link!

Cons: The user interface is kinda confusing. Trying to do simple tasks can be a little confusing. For example it took me a while to figure out how to block off a day I was taking off so people wouldnt book something with me. Stuff like that should be super obvious.

Now to its credit, you wont be using Calendly's interface everyday. Its more of a fire and forget solution. But when you do need to interact with it, I feel like its navigation should be a lot better.

Overall: Once we set everything up, its been a breeze. The free version they offer has more than enough functionality in it to suit most people.

Pros: What I like most about this software is that it allows you to add several members of your team to a calendar and also allows you to select the round robin option which gives every sales person a fair amount of customer leads and appointments.

Cons: The fields that you can create should have more specific input areas because often times the people entering the information don't enter it in the correct format - which in turn makes us need to edit that information in OnePageCRM when the Zap automatically adds a new contact there.

Overall: It's been helpful to our company because it automatically sends an email to the customer after they set the appointment. They can also reschedule or cancel on their own without having to deal with calling our office and asking someone to change it. It puts the customer in control of their appointment.

Pros: Intuitive and I can login to my Calendly account from most device types. Calendly connects well with the Calendar on my ios device. My partners are able to auto-schedule appointments with me,edit the scheduled appointments, and receive prompt reminders via email and text ,message about their scheduled appointment.

I successfully connected Calendly with Zapier,resulting to my getting notification text messages whenever someone schedules an appointment with me over Calendly.

Cons: Although Calendly can be used for free ,to fully enjoy the diverse functionality and feature this appointment scheduler provides,one has to pay.

Overall: Booking appointments with partners. Eliminates back and forth email exchanges or calls ,which used to be a necessity before fixing an appointment.

Pros: Calendly allows users to set schedules with several easy steps!

All you need to do is log in to Calendly, set your schedule, which could be daily, weekly, monthly or on certain dates, and share your Calendly link to your colleagues. Whenever your colleagues want to meet you, all they need to do is click the link, book appropriate time convenient to you both and that meeting is going to appear in your schedule! Very easy and handy.

Cons: The free version only allows one type of meeting. This does not diminish the value of Calendly, though. It is still a very useful application!

Overall: As a lecturer, I have to divide my time for teaching classes, research activities and meeting my research students . These are truly overwhelming at first since I had to allocate extra time to arrange my schedule, extra time which I do not have!

With Calendly, I can ask the students to book particular session, according to their needs. This has made my whole professional life easier!

Pros: Calendly is an easy scheduling tool to use. We integrated this on our website ,allowing customers to book sessions with our sales agents on Calendly via our website.

It has greatly reduced the time spent to fix appointments via back and forth phone calls and emails. While also enabling us save financial resource that used to be expended communicating with customers on the phone ,trying to ascertain the best time for a meeting with a sales person.

Cons: The support team at Calendly is very slow to respond to any query we have sent to them in time past. Most times by the time we get a response from Calendly support , we would already had fixed the problem ourselves.This shortcoming need to be worked on.

Pros: Before I started using Calendly to schedule appointments I constantly found myself hopping back and forth between various calendar and scheduling platforms. A time consuming and usually unsatisfying adventure each and every time.

Calendly changed the game for me though. Creating calendars is a breeze and I love the fact that I can embed them. It makes scheduling meeting with current clients and consultations with prospects a breeze.

Oh yeah, one more MAJOR plus for me is that Calendly reminds my client as well as myself about our meeting. I haven't had a missed meeting or client no-show since I've started using it!

Cons: Possibly the perfect cloud scheduling tool there is. No cons.

Pros: I came across Calendly last year when I was invited to book an appointment with another professional through an email and I Immediately fell in love with this idea.

All you have to do is update your availability in the application and share a link with your audience.

It lets them easily browse through your availability and select a day and time to schedule an appointment, all within a couple clicks.

Calendly is well integrated with other services. For example, if you receive an invitation through Gmail and end up setting up a meeting, it automatically adds it to your Calendar.

Cons: So far my experience with Calendly has been very solid and smooth. No problems so far.

Pros: As a freshmen mentor at my university, this is instrumental in setting up times to meet with students. I have my own classes I have to attend and my students had their own crazy schedules. It's annoying to have to go back and forth and say "when would be a good time to meet" and they say "tuesday or thursday" "what time?" "anywhere between 3:00 and 5:00" "Oh I have class until then, does 6:00 work?" blah blah blah...Calendly lets you just send a link, and they see when you are available, then they choose a time when they are available. It's really good.

Cons: My only issue is that it work of takes some time to figure out all the tools. Which in some ways is good because there are so many tools you can be very precise in scheduling. But I don't understand some of it.

Overall: Overall this has helped me be way more efficient and made my job easier.

I like the automated email reminders my team and clients get ,which keeps all parties informed of the meeting schedule and this makes it difficult for any party to miss a scheduled appointment,because they forgot.

Cons: A few of our clients in different timezone from ours have had one or two complaints,as they would rather prefer if Calendly can automatically update the time to their own local time.

Pros: The concept is so simple but yet somehow it took someone like Calendly to come along and change how we schedule meetings. It is great for freeing up time and cuts down on email clutter. On top of that, I get to block off the time that I want, and prospects/colleagues/anyone can pick a time for meeting that I set up a week in advance. I've been able to have a lot more time for "deep work" now instead of several meetings scattered throughout the day. It also integrates seamlessly with google calendar, no manual input required

Cons: There aren't many negatives. I just wish it was more widely used. Perhaps sending notifications when an appointment is booked would be a useful feature, I haven't come across that yet. Overall, it does what it says, and it does it well.

Overall: Calendly has been amazing and has actually freed up time in my day to block out times to work, and times for meetings, with the added benefit of everything already being scheduled for me with less administrative tasks trying to schedule everything in.

Pros: I love how easy it made scheduling for me. I just send people a link that shows them my availability and they can set up a time themselves. It is the simplest thing in the world. And the best thing is that it integrates with Microsoft outlook. So it will automatically pick up any existing meetings to ensure there is no "double booking". You can also set it up to send out reminders before a meeting to all participants. And rescheduling is just as easy as setting up the initial meeting.

Cons: Not much to dislike. Their web interface could be a little cleaner but that is not something you will need to work with too often.

Overall: Perfect. I really cant imagine not using it. You can use it for free (the paid version offers some really good features) and I always recommend it to people that tell me they hate trying to schedule meetings. It is amazing.

Pros: Its a great tool to set up meetings with people. Normally that requires a lot of emails to try to find a common time. Calendly fixes that by allowing you to set up times when you are free so the person on the other end can easily find out when you are available and schedule something using Calendly.

And the best thing about this is the Outlook integration for me. I loved how easy it was to sync this to my Outlook calendar. So now whenever I send someone a calendly link it automatically checks to make sure I dont have a meeting or a call booked for that time slot.

I love it so much that I have now made it a permanent part of my Outlook signature!

Cons: Their website layout is really messy. I wish it was easier to set up and later on make changes to. Thankfully that is not something you would do frequently.

Overall: It is amazing! Once I started using it, I couldnt fathom how I got by without it. I recommend this to people quite often. Just a fantastic utility all around.

Pros: We use a receptionist company that takes all of our business calls and whenver a customer wants to schedule a free estimate, the receptionist uses Calendly. We have sales reps that are assigned these customers in a round robin way. The appointment automatically gets added to their calendar and all of the customer information is included.

Cons: We don't have any cons to say about calendly at this time. So far it's been working great.

Overall: It's making scheduling appointments much easier with our customers. The customers also get an email after the appointment is scheduled so they are able to cancel it or request a day/time change if something comes up and that day/time no longer works for them.

Pros: Why wouldn't you use Calendly? It makes it so easy for my customers and prospects to immediately get time with me without having to go through the rigamarole of sending emails back and forth about what times work. It even lets you block out time for PTO or vacation so that you're not accidentally booked for something you can't attend. With a FREE VERSION, it's a no brainer.

Cons: Even though it has all the tools to make scheduling easy, I do sometimes wish there was a "confirmation" feature, just to make sure there is not a conflict that I have no put on my calendar yet. Finally, I would love an auto-response feature that would allow me to customize the "Thank You" email.

Overall: Again, complete no brainer. I am now always available to anyone who needs me. And as the saying goes, "the best ability is availability."

Pros: 1. It can easily sync up with my personal G-calendar

2. The client don't get to see other meeting in my calendar but only empty timeslots and schedule a meeting by a click of a button

3. It allows me to schedule 15 through to 1-hour meetings.

Cons: If a candidate or a client or candidate doesn't find a time that works for them I have to manually schedule for more empty slots.

If you forget to schedule times that you don't want to have a meeting e.g during lunch break - a client can schedule at that time. As a user, you have to be extra careful when scheduling a meeting via calendly.

Overall: 1. Like that calendly allows me to schedule a 1:1 and group meetings. I do a lot of recruitment and this software has helped me to seamlessly schedule meetings over a period of one month or two. Calemdly has made me so efficient in my role.

Pros: This is far and away the best way to automate your calendar appointments. You sign up and download a little utility and that syncs with your Microsoft outlook. After that you just send your calendly link to anyone you want to book an appointment with (or in our case, use it in your email signature) and anyone with that link can see your schedule and book an appointment.

Initially (before we were using this) we used to waste so much time going back and forth in emails trying to find a common free time slot to set up a call or a meeting. Once we started using this, all of them immediately got fixed. Now we just send a calendly link and sit back and relax. Its fantastic.

Even the free version is fully feature packed and will get you or your team going immediately.

Cons: Nothing much to dislike. Its crazy useful even if you get the free version.

Overall: One word - Amazing. Cannot do without it now.

Pros: Calendly is simple and does the job it's made for. You can get up and running in no time and it will save you and your team time and money by getting calls booked quickly. They even have features that help to remind your clients of the upcoming calls with helps increase hold rates.

Cons: I wish there were better features for teams. They have the basics but advanced team features would be great. I spend a lot of time managing the same meetings that included myself and a rep. They also lack some advanced features that we have found on other applications such as allowing leads to scheduling right from your website quickly and easily.

Overall: Calendly was the first scheduling app that I used and it was a game changer. I loved not having to go back and forth with my clients trying to work out a time.

Super easy to use, great way to schedule!

Pros: I am able to completely customize my availability within the system. It also links to my google calendar, so it updates itself when I make certain times busy on my schedule. I also like that it sends an automated accept from the person scheduling with me, that way I don't have to scratch and claw to grab that accept.

Cons: I wish Calendly synced with my gmail to create a full calendar view within my email so my clients don't have to go through the trouble of clicking the link, then finding the day and time.

Overall: Saves me several back and forth emails to find a time. This is not only time saving, but stress relieving.

So simple, people can book me without back and fort conversation about timing

Pros: It is simple to setup and even simpler to use. This piece of software allows you to schedule your days really easy. And it also allows you to share it with external people so they can book time with you. You can create different types of events like 10 min, 15 mins and 30 mins meetings. The software will show the available spots when the person selects one of the meeting types.

Cons: One thing I dislike is that it does create the event as if I created it, so the user can not cancel it. Sometimes the other person cancels the event but the event still appears us available in my calendar.

Calendly: A Decent Scheduling Option

Pros: Calendly helped me schedule meetings with those outside my organization. I typically use it to schedule interviews for potential candidates. It's a great tool that integrates with my Google Calendar that I use to schedule my work day. Instead of the back and forth trying to schedule a meeting, it shows what availability I have. You can set up the tool to define what a work day looks like so that others are not booking during times outside the normal work day.

Cons: Calendly becomes confusing when meetings need to be rescheduled, people don't have their calendars set to the appropriate time zone, or when alternative needs come up. I've had several occasions where people would show up at the wrong time for a meeting because they did not have their calendar on the right time zone. This led to a bit of frustration as you wouldn't be fully prepared for the meeting when they would show up hours before you thought it was scheduled. You cannot just assume people know how to use technology, so this could create confusion.

Overall: Overall I was generally happy with Calendly and would recommend it for business.

Pros: - Enough options within the tool & platform to create a nice way to "gate" yourself while allowing scheduling of a variety of meetings - Integrates nicely w/ tools such as Zapier, Google Calendar (GSuite), etc. - Good pricing structure for what you get included in their plans

Cons: - Going to be replaced by voice search & scheduling assistants (i.e. Alexa or Siri) in my opinion - They need an enterprise or small business (team) level solution in their pricing structure (i.e. so that you can create scheduling links per team member) - Pretty limited functionality, but does the job

Pros: Having gone through a lot of the other big names, I used Calendly initially for myself before spreading it to my whole team and it's been absolutely perfect. The way we can sync not only with whatever calendars but also with each other, have custom landing pages and choices for different client categories, branding options, etc., has been totally flawless. I've never once had a technical hiccup and I really appreciate some "little touch" features like different availabilities for different services. Bravo, A+, will continue to use.

Cons: Does get a little pricy once you rack up the features and users but still either less expensive or competitive with any other solution in the category while being much more user friendly.
