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.

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: 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.

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.

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.

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: 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: 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: Calendly enable selected high profile clients and customers to schedule meetings with anybody in my team. With Calendly we have been able to avoid the usual back and forth emails ,or phone calls which is very much synonymous with trying to arrange meetings.

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.

Amazing tool to automate your calendar scheduling.

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: 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.

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.

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.

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: Clients are able to book their own appointments without having to go back and forth. Th software will sync to your calendar that way you can let clients know when you are available and they can book it based off your availability. The software also sends them a calendar invite and a reminder! Perfect way to allow busy clients to quickly schedule a demo with us. You can also use a link to add it to your website, emails, etc.

Cons: Software if perfect. It has made my scheduling life way easier to manager. There is nothing I dislike about the software.

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: I have tried to find something better than Calendly, and I just can't. They have the user experience down to a science, the team booking works great, the notifications and integrated google calendar are perfect, and it's bug-free.

Cons: The lack of having a custom domain and custom outbound email. They have had that on their feedback site and lots of votes and interest, but after over 1-2 years they have never implemented it.

Overall: Calendly has optimized my personal schedule and support team schedules and make the booking process easy and with less friction for us and our customer/end user.

I like how I can now integrate my Calendly with Office365 ,ensuring that once a meeting is booked via Calendly,it automatically reflects on my Calendar,ensuring I get a reminder.

Cons: I will like to exalt more control on content I include on Calendly such as important notes about meetings, and even the freedom to upload images and files too.

Pros: Simple user interface. Easy to bolt on to existing software. Solves the niche problem of helping customers schedule across large sales team in an automated format. We've received customer compliments for making the scheduling process easy and quick.

Cons: Currently offers limited customization in terms of controlling queuing requests based on specific variables. For example it is not possible to funnel customer requests to various sales reps based on title. User interface is simple but not particularly visually pleasing. It onto to have a few templates to choose from in terms of design.

Overall: Reduced costs by automating the demo scheduling process.

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: - 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

Calendly has been a fantastic tool that myself and team can greatly depend on.

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: This calendar is really easy to set up and use. The items link directly to your calendar( we use Gmail) and sends your admin notifications for when the appointments are booked. This is much easier than the call in system we used to use. More organized and fair to everyone with a 24 hr booking notice.

Cons: IF the admin has an item on your calendar already, it will not let you or other people to book a time for that slot. This is a bug we have reached out to the support to try and fix but they do not have an answer for us. We just created a new email that this program is tied to with a blank calendar and it seems to have fixed that issue.

Overall: Love this systems because of its ease of use and fairness to all employees in our company. We have streamlined meeting room reservations to the point it is almost effortless to insure the rooms are being use fairly.

Pros: We have daily site deployment requirements that are a nightmare to schedule with our clients and customers. Instead of endless back and forth wrangling over scheduling a time that will work, the client can instead see which blocks are available and reserve that block. This tool has given our customers a great insight into our availability and really helps set expectations so that everyone can be on the same page. Its all about communication, and Calendly smooths out a huge portion of what used to be a large part of our work day.

Cons: What cons can I say? Calendly knows what its doing and integrates their software nicely in their niche. The licenses are reasonably priced, the interface is great, and the support has been phenomenal when needed. I have nothing negative to say regarding their product or their support.

Overall: Lots of organizations have communication issues whether they know it or not. We were trying to schedule so many tasks from our clients is became a point of contention and stress both for us and the client. Calendly has smoothed over all the communication issues that had been there previously for us, cant recommend it enough if you have a need to schedule and assign tasks between lots of clients and lots of engineers.

At its simplest, a great booking tool to use for your calendar.

Pros: How simple and easy it was to set up for simple appointment booking processes.

Cons: That they hold a Google Analytics integration in an upgraded plan, and you can't integrate Google Analytics without the upgrade. Therefore, it made me pretty upset that they would not allow us to build our own Google Analytics integration and force us to upgrade for a simple feature. Not good business practice and will lose customers because of it.

Overall: Good, outside of the fact that an upgrade is required to use a basic needed functionality.

Pros: I like that it integrates with your Google calendar so that appointments you already have scheduled are automatically blocked off from the available scheduled times that you've set up in Calendly. Likewise, appointments that clients set up through Calendly are blocked off in your calendar. I believe it also integrates with other email providers such as Outlook. It integrates easily into my WordPress website and is very easy to setup and use. Also the free option is more than sufficient for my needs, however if you need more customization or just don't want to see the Calendly branding, it is relatively inexpensive to upgrade.

Cons: I wish you could choose custom colors for event types. There are only a few preselected colors to choose from to differentiate your events.

Overall: I don't have to play phone or email tag when trying to schedule meetings with my clients. They can simply pop onto my Calendly calendar and choose a time from my available slots that works best for them. It saves me a ton of time and headaches.

Pros: I love the elegant simplicity of Calendly. Send your calendar link to someone and let them schedule time with you at their convenience. Set up your availability, sync to your own calendar, and you're off to the races. You can also set up different types of meetings with different durations, and requesting different information from users based on what event they select.

Cons: I wish they offered the full solutions on a limited event number basis on a freemium model. I feel that the initial premium trial of 14 days is not enough to evaluate whether or not base or paid option is right for your business needs. For example, let's say I only schedule 3-4 meetings per week, or even per month, I would think a plan option of free, with ALL features but limited to 5 meetings per month, would be more conducive to getting people to upgrade.

Overall: I can't really say enough good about Calendly. Between this and a few AI vertical agents, scheduling meetings has become a pretty much automatic task that I pass of to software completely.

Pros: This allows me to book solid follow ups with leads in my pipeline who are generally pretty busy people. The link gives them a chance to book a time that works with both of our schedules in a few clicks of a button. On my end it's very customizable in terms of appointment requirements, and when I allow them to be scheduled. Also updates your calendar in real time.

Cons: Sometimes when working with international clients the timezones don't coordinate and they end up booking something that isn't at the time they intended. I'm not sure if this is something that can be addressed on Calendly's end, or if its on the end of the person booking the follow up.

Overall: This software allows me to easily coordinate with my clients who are more reachable via email and get them on the phone.

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 love the fact that I can kick out my calendar link in emails to new leads as they come in. It makes the whole process of getting people scheduled for demos so much easier. I love that you can add questions in the calendar link as well. This makes my job so much easier when someone does schedule for a demo, I already have 2-3 questions answered so I can prepare the call accordingly.

Cons: Honestly there's not much that I don't like about it. Again, it's so simple to use and the fact that I can add questions when people schedule makes everything worth it.

Pros: I love that Calendly links to my google calendar, allows for buffer time between appointments and automatically adjusts for timezone. It has made working with international clients very easy to organize.

Cons: Sometimes when sorting through availability (these show up as little time bubbles for your client) people have clicked next a few times and not realized they were in the next month.

Overall: Calendly solves the awkward problem of emailing back and forth with clients trying to figure out a time that works for you both. I've used it as a client and as the professional hosting my hours and its awesome as both.

Calendly allows my team to maximize time and be more efficient with scheduling demos with Prospects.

Pros: We have an auto email sent to each new lead that has a Calendly link to schedule we have a lot of clients auto schedule from that first email.

You can create custom links and block out time when you aren't available

Cons: I wish they had the ability to add blocks of available time vs a link to click through but other than that it is great.

Overall: My team is more efficient with inbound leads and save a lot of TIME!

Pros: We use this software to help with scheduling phone interviews and it works absolutely great. The fields are customizable so that whenever we receive an invite, all the necessary info is neatly available. Having the ability to have multiple calendars (mixed availability, different process) is a huge asset as well.

Cons: Honestly I can't think of any - it did exactly what we needed it to.

Pros: Calendly makes it easy to schedule an appointment with someone, whether it's with an academic advisor, a customer support agent, or a sales rep. It increases conversions by allowing people to schedule right away, instead of having to convince them to call or email someone.

Cons: Sometimes the calendar gets double-booked and doesn't reflect it; hopefully that bug will be updated soon.

Pros: Out of all the booking software like schedule once, acuity, vCita and many others we've used Calendly is by far the best. Because it is beautifully designed, it is mobile first, it is easy to setup and use, the website users can easily book what they want and, finally, the free version is much better than their competitors paid version.

What we like the most is the client facing part, that's really easy to use and well designed.

Cons: We've used the paid and free version of most famous booking software and Calendlyy beats them all. Based on our use (letting people book city tours) there's nothing I'd change or request.

Overall: Beautifully designed, easy to setup and use, amazing UX for visitors.

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.

Pros: Ascetically Calendly is the best. I've looked at at least 12 other scheduling softwares and nobody has a cleaner customer facing page.

It's fairly flexible once you know how to work on it.

Awesome customer reminder features.

Cons: They absolutely need to be able to duplicate event types and apply these to different teams. This would save me hours of time on re-creating the same events again and again. Also, all customer service is done over email. I get the no phone line thing, but a chat option would be nice for a qucik answer when you are working on something.

Overall: Excellent. Fairly simple to use. Clean look. I would and have and probably will continue to recommend recommended calendly to anyone.

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: Apart from the immense simplicity for tracking availability and linking with google calendars and salesforce i like the landing page we have been able to put on our website that lets visitors book a consultation with us directly and automatically confirms the appointment by email.

Cons: Calendly serves its purpose for scheduling basic level appointments and is not google calendar but it does with its simplicity the job it has been created for.

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.

Cons: I do not like that the same customers can use old links. I have submitted numerous request to create an expiring link feature but that is a no go with them. If another software with similar design is out there that can do this we would probably switch

Cons: I don't know if it is real deal or not but sometimes partners from different timezones booked meetings with me not in my timezone but in theirs and our calendars did not match. However, I assume this issue is fixed now.

Pros: I really like that it's pretty much a simple system and yet so important and vital because it makes scheduling meetings with my team and clients so much easier, without me needing to worry about sending out confirmations, or reminders about meetings. Calendly does that for me! It automatically detects the client's timezone, so I don't have to worry about making the wrong timezone conversion each time.

Cons: I only wish Paypal and Stripe were included in the Premium plan, versus having to get the higher tiered plan for these 2 payment integrations.

Overall: Calendly has saved me and my team a lot of time and effort. No more back and forth with confirmations and reminders.

Pros: Calendly has made scheduling between a big team so seamless and easy. Used to be that I had to look at my team's calendar and try to sync a slot that works for both attendees--now the attendee just picks a slot for them! It's super easy to use. Interface is great and there are so many features that even let you customize someone's calendar who works in another time zone. Support is always helpful and responsive, which is always nice.

Cons: I've already submitted this to Calendly, but it would be nice if there was a feature to attach a PDF to the invite that gets sent out.

Overall: I don't waste time trying to find a time that works for all attendees anymore!

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.

Cons: "In Practice" I find that I have a depressed response rate. I don't know if people are soured against automation tools, or are just afraid to click anything, but I get a higher response rate when I just say "reply to this email" and let them do it the old-fashioned way. Go figure.

Pros: This software is great to time-block appointment availability, and saves time on "I'm available this time, does that work for you?" email exchanges.

You set up your appointment type, your availability (time of day and days of the week) and you send your personalised link to those who wish to make appointments with you. You can also set the days of the week that you are unavailable, so you don't have to decline appointments, your calendar already makes it clear when you're not available.

The setup is quick and easy, and the interface is lovely to work with. It's easy to learn to use as well.

I also like that the system is "set and forget", in that you set up your availability and can leave it to run on its own, until you'd like to adjust your available hours on specific days.

I have integrated it with my website and placed a shortcode in my footer to allow people to book with me directly from my website.

Cons: It's a little bit disappointing that the free account only has one kind of appointment available to create. I know that you can get more kinds of appointments with the paid version.

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.

Comments: I use Calendly for my student consultations when they want to schedule time with me in office hours. It's so easy to just send them my Calendly link and they can find a time they can call me when I'M AVAILABLE because Calendly syncs with my other calendars and checks for my free time.

Pros: major "scheduling" timesaver because I don't have to go back and forth and back and forth with someone on what time/day works for a simple scheduled phone call or video meeting.

Cons: not able to accept payments in the free version level, no native iOS app, and only able to use one type of appointment at the free level

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: I like how easy this product is to sync with your calendar and set up, only takes a couple of minutes!

Cons: The only thing I find that is a bit of a struggle with this product is when others book a call with me through the tool it does not sync to their calendars and they tend no show.

Pros: Well thought out for one-to-one meetings scheduled by individuals requesting a time with the customer. Flexible and it works. New features to add questions by appointment type and also to redirect people to a page after completion look cool!

Cons: Can't send 3 or 4 times to a friend and let them pick one and I can't setup a meeting with a group of people to see what time works best. Also Zoom integration.

Overall: I hope they continue to improve the product. It's best for people who want others to schedule appointments with them easily.

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: Before I was always calling and trying to schedule a follow-up and juggling between me and a prospects calendar and now its made my job easy. I insert the link into an e-mail and say "Pick a time that works out best for you and I will reach out" making it super simple.

Cons: For my use working as an SDR the only issue I have seen if there is an update, I have to resync my Gmail account but that's only happened once or twice.

Overall: scheduled way more follow up chats with prospects easily making me destroy my quota every month!

Pros: Calendly is one of the main reasons why I have demos everyday. The majority of my calls and demos are scheduled through Calendly. It is the easiest tool for people to schedule through.

Cons: My only complaint about Calendly is that it doesnt allow you to send your available times in an email. It only allows you to send the link.

Overall: Great software

Makes my life SO much easier

Pros: I know some people think it's rude to use a calendar application -- that it seems so impersonal. But, I am absolutely in love with Calendly. There are so many useful functionalities, and it instantly adds appointments to your calendar.

Cons: I think there should be an opportunity to approve of requests before they're added to your calendar, if needed. I keep Calendly in my email signature, and sometimes there are things I know about that aren't yet on my calendar, and there's no way to stop it from being added. Then, there's an uncomfortable back-and-forth with someone (a client, vendor, etc.) to find a time that works (which is sort of the opposite of the point of the software). It's only a minor deterrent from using it, thoguh.

Overall: Calendly has vastly improved my company, and it's cut down on the amount of time wasted trying to make phone or meeting appointments.

Pros: The key here is simplicity for something like this, and that's where Calendly shines. You don't need a ton of bells and whistles when it comes to having a meeting scheduler integrated into your existing calendar and email and Calendly fits the bill well here. It just works and is priced affordably.

Cons: I can't come up with any tangible con when it comes to this software. It's a simple concept and really doesn't lend itself to any complicated issues at any times.

Overall: I use it for all my meeting scheduling.

Pros: What I like most about this software is that I have multiple ways to organize day to day and month by month appointments. I have a lot of color options to categorize appointment types or to block out unavailable times.

Cons: The only consequence I can think of to use the software is that when it updates I'm not sure where the features I constantly used were moved to. It only took about an hour to get over.

Overall: I don't know how I managed without this software before.

Pros: Calendly has a great free level plan that lets you try it out for a good long time. When you pay to get more features, the quality of the software is consistent with the free trial (which is terrific). In my mind, Calendly has the best, most human, easiest to use, and best designed product in the meeting scheduling space.

Cons: The free trial only allows for one meeting type (which is more than enough). It says a lot when the only complaint is that I want more from the Free Trial. :)

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.
