Pros: Love the layout and design with this application. Nice modern and sleek templates. I am able to create a schedule, customize colors and layout design, and then share a link out with others to be able to book times with me. There are some settings customization options that help. For me, I used YouCanBookMe so that teachers can schedule meeting times with me without the need to go back and forth through email. Love that it syncs to Google Calendar that way I can stay on top of everything via my mobile phone.

Cons: This was a deciding factor for me. Unfortunately, being in the school setting, you have to pay a little price to get some better customizing features. One of which is the ability to create a truly custom schedule that isn't every 15/30/45/or 60 mins. For me, class periods are not equal time frame. I also need the ability to build in hall time, which isn't possible unless I pay for all of the premium features. I wish this was something that was offered to begin with.

Overall: Overall it was an effective application. I was able to find some workarounds or mess with how I created my blocks of time to best match my schools schedule. Teachers found it simple as an enduser to book time with me. Beats keeping track of everything yourself!

Pros: I have trialed a number of booking systems costing for a month. Youcanbookme beat them all and is a fraction of the price.

The level of customization afforded in communicating automatically with your customers is quite simply awesome. You can integrate HTML and apply logic arguments through the use of mailmerge codes to speak to different customers automatically in different ways depending on the nature of their booking saving you time, effort and giving an efficient and impressive service to your clients.

The UI was a bit creaky originally, but has been recently updated and is now very slick indeed.

Cons: This is a basically a very sophisticated calendar API with a load of automatic messaging functionality bolted onto it. It is not a database which is missing a trick quite frankly.

Youcanbookme should probably publicise the really clever aspects of their system better, can take a bit of digging to find the juicy stuff

Pros: In the Executive Search Firm, sometimes it is really hard to intertwine your time to the availability of a client and candidate to coordinate calendars, but YouCanBookMe made it easy for me to find sometime to chat. You can customize the YouCanBookMe link so that it will be easily categorized which call is which, and it will give the other person you are communicating with the flexibility to manage the most convenient time to meet up or to talk with you over the phone that matches your work schedule as well.

Cons: I don't have anything negative to say about YouCanBookMe because it helped me tremendously in managing times with clients and candidates that I need to meet or talk to.

Overall: Subscribing to YouCanBookMe is not costly and not cheap too, but you should try it! If your company drives revenue more in closing deals, and those deals happen when you successfully talk with a client or a candidate over the phone then I think it is worth the cost.

Pros: Ease of use...

Customizable scheduler...

Integrates with my personal calendar...

Eliminates the dreaded "email tag" game that can happen.

Cons: In the rare instance when I have to try and reschedule an interview (I use this system to schedule radio interviews), I find I have to actually "Cancel" the interview and ask the other person to reschedule...

I wish there was a way I could offer a "rescheduled" appointment from my end instead of asking the client to do so from their end.

Overall: I have used YouCanBookMe for almost two years now. Other than the comment in the "Cons" section, I have not had any issue at all with this software. Almost every person I have interviewed has stated how nice it was to use that system (almost 400 interviews in the last two years).

There are other schedulers out there...but I'm staying with this system. It has proven to be 100% reliable for what I am trying to do in my business.

I have used youcanbook.me for several years and it is very valuable in organizing my appointmens.

Pros: It is simple to implement and is connected to my Google Calendar. I can unschedule myself by simply removing a keyword from my Google calendar. The URL takes you directly to my scheduling page. I advise college students and provide office hours for the students taking my classes.

Cons: I cannot customize the front page with links, add pictures or prevent students from canceling my appointments at the last minute. I am using the free version, in the interest of free disclosure. My colleagues use a different system which they pay for, but I don't like the fact that in that system, it takes three mouse clicks to get to the page where you can see my calendar. Alas, they won't pay for another system, so I am required to use your free version.

Overall: I have an easy way for students to schedule me.

Pros: This offers a LOT of very useful features to organize meetings. My students love the ability to sign up for office hours, know that they have that slot blocked out for them, and get a reminder email the day before. I get much better utilization of my office hours and the student satisfaction has increased. I also use this for advising meetings and to sign up for shared equipment usage. In every case, the service performs flawlessly. I cannot recommend Youcanbook.me highly enough.

Cons: I would like to see a few more themes for the sign up pages and/or the ability to customize a theme. Otherwise, everything is fantastic.

Overall: This makes my job immensely easier and is a better platform for my students to use, also. For a laboratory with shared equipment, it ensures that every researcher has time blocked out for their use.

Pros: What is not to love about youcanbookme! In fact, I have recommended this software to fellow colleagues who are now using it. I was able to create appointment slots that carry over several months. I use the link provided in my email signatures and it allows everyone from upper management to my volunteers to be able to book an appointment or meeting with me. This software saves time and allows for better accountability!

Cons: This software has no cons. I have hear people complain, but that has to do with the levels. The more calendars you need to link, the more you pay.

In my case, with 1 calendar it is perfect!

Overall: Overall, I have been using this software since 2010! I love it, and recommend it to everyone in the volunteer management field!

Pros: My team and I work with clients all over the world providing language training. To have a platform for learners to book simply is very important. The key features that we like are that it integrates with calaners and has very granular controls. It also does all of the complex time zone adjustment for you. For us it is one of the central components of the service we provide! As all lessons begin with bookings.

Cons: It is difficult to find cons with YCBM. I spend about 6 months researching and testing many booking platforms, when I was designing the infrastructure of my product range. I chose YCBM, because it was perfect for my needs.

Overall: With this product as part of the infrastructure we use, we are able to make and take bookings from our learners in different countries. It has granular controls and integrates very well with the other platforms that make up our infrastructure.

Pros: The convenience. The fact that it is linked to my gmail calendar so people wanting to book a time with me can see my current availability and I can see all bookings in my calendar. I also get an automatic notification email every time someone books a time.

Cons: It'd be nice to be able to email back to confirm or change a booking using a link in the email message that is automatically sent to me when a booking is made. I now have to go into youcanbookme to do this.

Overall: I think this is a great online booking system. It has made things much easier and reliable when it comes to people making appointments to see me.

Pros: Students do not have to contact us in order to schedule appointments and we have information that we need prior to the appointment (ID#, reason for appt.). This allows us to proactively redirect students and prepare for appointments when necessary.

Cons: It would be helpful to have a drop down menu where students can choose from reasons for their appointment. If a students chooses a reason that requires the completion of a form (and not an apppointment), it would be helpful if that choice generated an email to the student with the necessary form. That way, students are only scheduling appointments for necessary reasons.

Is there a way you can contact me to let me know if this would be possible already? For instance, is it available in a more advanced version?

Pros: Overall, their free version of the software fits my work needs perfectly. I was able to set up all I needs -- appointment length, email notification text, blocked times, how the pages were structured, even API/custom field integration so i could pull in ticket IDs from our help desk software to maintain and organize my remote session appointments!

Cons: I can't say there are too many negatives, I would like to see some more choices for the theming and the ability to allow the user to customize the length of the session, but I know these are paid features, which our company may adopt over time. Overall, it's the best appointment setup app I could find.

Overall: Online appointment setup and integrations with our Outlook calendars-- for free, more than I could ask for.

Pros: The ease in setting up this system to be unique just to your needs. You can input the questions asked and various categories. You can block time out of your schedule for any reason (and the reasons may show up on YOUR smart phone calendar - but just appear as "not available" to those using the software to schedule an appointment with you. The software synchs with your smart phone and calendar system. It automatically updates within seconds (typically) when a client makes an appointment request or you either approve a request or block out time (for doctor appointments, etc.). Great system - I love it! Very easy to use!

Pros: YouCanBookMe is our primary tool in setting up appointments with clients and candidates. It is very efficient and helped us save a lot of time. The other party can select from the schedules you have provided and it will automatically book the time in your calendar.

Cons: The time zone can be a little tricky, so probably they can add a feature to convert time zones, especially if the parties involved are located in different locations.

Overall: Setting up appointments and interview schedules.

Pros: From a front-end perspective, I love how Youcanbook.me shows all the options available for booking. For example, users can see that there IS no 9am, because it's greyed out.

From a back-end perspective, there's a lot of really cool features. I love that I can set it up so when a client books, I can have it send a email, a text message, fire api code to send a message to me in Slack, etc. I love how much customization (and how easy) it is to modify the endpoints.

Cons: Their new UX update made the backend a lot easier to navigate. But missing is some power-user stuff. I have 150 appointments, and it only shows me 10 appointments per page. I have to very slowly navigate to see the others, or export it as a CSV.

Other appointment generators show it to me in calendar form.

The other con is that they allow markdown, but not pure HTML. I wanted the embedded form to trigger a custom javascript function on my site, but I couldn't do it. Granted, it's a bit advanced for 99% of users, but that was disappointing. I did have to do a work around.

Overall: I use the appointment feature for both online bookings and in-person bookings. It's powerful!

Pros: At first, I was hesitant to use this for scheduling appointments, but when I got the hang of it, I couldn't believe how efficient it has been in setting up blocks on our calendars. You can customize it to different time intervals, as well as how the entire page would be displayed. For a minimum monthly fee, you can use the full functionality of this tool.

Cons: The fact that not all not features are for free (which is understandable, although some are basic functionalities that should be available to all).

Overall: "Quick scheduling" says it all. It also allows me to customize a confirmation notification to anyone who reserves a slot on my calendar.

Not really integrated with anything directly. You need to go through zapier to get an integration.

Overall: Our customers are able to book apts every day from our website.

Pros: Automated process for booking, for reminders, etc. The integration with google calendar makes it a very useful software

Cons: See above. To expand on that -- we are photographers. We have categories for senior portraits (20 minutes), Communion portraits (1h15m). It would be great at certain times of the year if we can prevent senior portraits from being booked, while still allowing Communion portraits.

Overall: Ease of scheduling, many fewer phone calls.

This platform works wonderfully as long as you were scheduling 60 or 30 min appointments.

Pros: Automated communication to the client before and after each appointment is great. Also, the backend is easy to navigate and edit.

Cons: Does not have a 45 minute or 90-minute easy option for use. If you schedule on the hour or the half hour it works great. But if you scheduled for 45 minutes you're required to use in every 15 minutes option, which makes it confusing for the client.

Overall: Scheduling is automated and takes care of itself.

Our panel of volunteer professionals now get more done in less time and a big advantage is they have prior information about the application to be submitted.

Pros: Easy to use and for a free version, it does the job pretty well which is rare ! I managed doing the set-up my-self and it work automatically. I love not to waist time anymore to fix the appointment. People can see the date where i am available without having to ask me. That's awesome.

Cons: Well, i wish i could up-grade for a lower cost since i am not a "big user", less amount would be great for me for what i need for the moment and have more options available.

Overall: The top benefit is that i do not have to talk to people before their first appointment. They know the rule, they know what they can expect, they can book the appointment and then, when we talk, we work, we do not waist time doing ping pong to find the right date.

Pros: We have encouraged our department faculty to use this software so students can book office hours remotely, and if the faculty member is sick or has to cancel it lets them know. Also lets students cancel remotely. This has worked well.

Cons: Before the most recent redesign, several faculty took a lot of hand holding to understand how to set up the times and coordinate with Google calendars (most of us use Outlook so it is an additional step). Not sure if the new design is more user friendly, but the new cost structure ( allow basic functionality like giving an end date [e.g. end of the semester] for appointments) is not worth it to schedule a few office hours per week.

Pros: There are tons of options if you're looking for calendar appointment scheduling apps, and I've tried many of them. However I've settled on YouCanBook.me because in my opinion it provides the most customisable options of any product in this space. You get detailed control over appointment times, breaks, availability windows, etc. You get support for custom CSS and theming, integrations with other apps through Zapier, and the ability to easily have multiple booking URLs for various uses.

Cons: The pricing (you pay per synced calendar, even if you aren't explicitly scheduling to each calendar) so if you're like me and your GCal has several calendars that you spread events across (I have separate calendars for Personal, Business, Travel, Events, Meetings, etc.) you have to pay for each one if you want it to factor into your availability. It can also be tough to get started because there are so many features.

Overall: More powerful, customisable scheduling for interviews, calls, and other appointments.

As a professor, youcanbook.me has been an invaluable tool for managing my time.

Pros: It allows flexibility for students and colleagues, improves my time management, and almost completely eliminates any back-and-forth regarding the scheduling of meetings.

Cons: It would be nice if groups of people could independently join a time (i.e. Sam makes an appointment; Sarah asks to join; Sam says it's OK -- though I recognize that this would require choices around anonymity for the scheduler and participants).

Pros: It's very simple for people to use and makes my life easy! I love that it connects with my calendar.

Cons: I would prefer to pay for upgrades individually. I don't need a full package, but there are some one or two items that would be a little more help. (adding in travel time automatically)

Overall: It saves a lot of time. I do not have to go back and forth with people through email trying to find a time that works for both of us.

Cons: I wish there were more styling options to make it look more customized to your brand/company. Even basic things like changing colors and such would be good. Also adding additional calendar providers would be useful.

Pros: This is a super easy to use online calendar tool that lets us book calls and demos with our clients. It is perfect for what we need - no frills, no fuss.

Cons: I understand that support is reserved for those who upgrade to the paid tool, but some kind of email support would be great for the free tool. I've had to resort to Twitter, which is my least favorite way of getting ahold of a company.

Overall: This is an easy-to-use calendar/booking tool with a free and paid version. The free version is great and works for what we need, which is a way to schedule calls with clients.

Pros: I finally got tired of the back-and-forth emails just trying to figure out when to meet with someone. What a waste of time! YouCanBookMe gives me an easy link to share with anyone who can easily select a time. The other person gets an email confirmation and it goes right on my calendar. It couldn't be easier!

Cons: I wish it would make me coffee in the morning! Seriously, I don't find anything missing from YouCanBookMe.

Overall: I save hundreds of hours a year that I used to waste scheduling meetings with people. Now I just send them a link, they pick a time, and away we go!

I work in student affairs as an academic professional, so youcanbookme works great for my needs.

Pros: almost everything. except apple integration. product was easy to use and flexible. great customisation

Cons: We're writing to alert all users connecting their iCalendars with YouCanBook.me about an urgent issue with the integration. You are currently using iCalendar with YouCanBook.me, and you may need to take action to continue taking bookings.

iCalendar's ability to communicate with 3rd-party tools like YouCanBook.me just changed and iCalendar can no longer reliably communicate with tools like YouCanBook.me.

iCalendar's issue will likely cause problems for you, and we want to make sure you're aware and able to take the appropriate action as soon as possible so you can continue taking bookings.

At this time, we cannot recommend continuing to use iCalendar. Our alternative suggestion is to switch to Google Calendar.

Overall: diary use

Overall a great experience. Some room for improvement.

Cons: I needed a very simple affordable option and this worked perfect, so I have no complaints

Pros: It has quite a lot of functionality, even on a free account. I really love when I can try things out for a while before deciding whether or not to invest long-term.

Cons: The general design of the backend is not great. It's definitely a winner for ease of use on that front (nowhere near as confusing as Acuity, for instance), but it leaves a lot to be desired.

It's also far too challenging to go from a free account to a paid account; I eventually gave up and moved on to another platform. Very odd! Not my least favorite thing, but worth noting.

Pros: We utilize YouCanBookMe to schedule our demos. It is a great way to hit the masses with one link and allow people to schedule the time that works best for them. It can be completely ad-free and has your branding. It's a great tool for people who want to schedule several appointments.

Cons: Unfortunately you can't block specific days (i.e. the 20th & 21st) off the calendar, it has to be by day of the week (Monday, Tuesday)...which is a bit of a disappointment. However, on the whole this is well worth the cost.

Overall: Great scheduling tool

Pros: It looks good on a website, and it's really customizable. I've used it for about 10 different clients, and it has nearly all the functionality that you need to customize it to specific use cases. The way it integrates into Google Calendar is really powerful.

Cons: Has some limitations that make it a not so great fit for some applications, like the max amount of time you can set up an appointment for is 24 hours. It's probably not a problem for most people, but if you want to set up intensive 3-day workshops or something like that, it would be really nice to have.

Pros: YouCanBook.Me (YCBM) is great for creating a booking software page that allows clients to book easily and from anywhere. The designs looked great, the teams feature works well, and clients found the software easy to use. There are lots of advanced features like reminders available, but things like SMS reminders require credits that other similar programs offer for free.

Cons: The free version has lots limitations that mean the options to expand are more limited. The biggest limitation on the free version is that you don't have any main dashboard access for all your appointments that others offer for free. That's a huge value for money problem since it means you have nearly no control over appointments once they are booked.

Mostly works.

Pros: It does everything I need to automate and customize my workflow. It does more than any other online booking system. It solves every problem I throw at it and saves me 10s of hours every week.

Cons: The UX and UI need a bit of work. Sometimes it's not completely obvious how to solve a problem with YCBM. It can do, but sometimes I need to figure out how. The upside is that they have AMAZING customer support to help me through these issues. Of course, with better UX they wouldn't need to help me. :-)

Pros: Easy to set up and use. The dashboard is in general very user friendly. The offer of different looks for the calendar is really nice. Is affordable and easy to use for the customer.

Cons: The appointment settings are a bit confusing. For example, if you want to remove a certain day from the month (4th of July) to look as unavailable, you have to set your own calendar as unavailable in order for youcanbookme to take it out of the calendar view. Even trying to do this was not accurate all of the time and not very easy to coordinate. It would be ideal to have a feature that allows you to block out any certain day you may need.

Overall: It connects directly with my google calendar

Pros: I searched online for such a product and only YouCanBookMe can do the scheduling in the way that really satisfied me. I tried to make workarounds with different calendar apps, but this still is way better than those. If you need a tool to have something like a 24x7 prayer scheduler, this is the best tool to use! Nothing compares to it, I've tried others!

Cons: I haven't used the paid version, maybe there are more to explore for added features. The free one, however, is good for what it's worth.

Has potential to be great.

Pros: Works on top of Google Calendar. No "synching" BS - Google Calendar is the calendar - You can book me adds a layer of easy to use UI. Largely easy to use.

Cons: It is so bad that only parts of the software are translatable. C'mon guys!

Also, simple features such as appointment padding and discounts/surcharges based on booking form fields are not available.

But the worst part is that they don't have WordPress etc plugins and require embedding via iframes!

Overall: People can book my services online.

Great starting calendar to schedule your bookings

Pros: It's fairly easy to set up and has a basic feature in the free plan. I like how when booking a time, it shows the whole calendar view instead of choosing a date and then seeing the available times.

Cons: This may be shallow but I really don't care for the name. It's long and tedious to type out when sending someone the link. I also think the paid plans are a bit pricey for what you get.

Very good experience so far!

Pros: You have a free calender sync function. This is the main reason I decided for YouCanBookMe. Most other providers charge for this.

Cons: The software doesn't look super clean, based on the 2017 web standards. Also, I would like to have the user select different languages, not just time zones.

Overall: I do not have to send time suggestions for meetings out anymore, but only one link Very handy.

Pros: * Text Message Reminders

* Automatically Integrate with Online Calendar

* Accepts Payments

* Email reminders

* Multiple calendars (very helpful!!!)

Cons: No PayPal, only Stripe for payment acceptance.

No tracking of packages of services.

I wish there were a live chat box response, rather than waiting... waiting... waiting...

Overall: Clear boundaries with needy clients.

Pros: While I like the free version of the software, I wish there were some more attractive calendars. I do like and appreciate the ease at which you can embed the calendar on your site - making it seemless for you clients to schedule.

Cons: I would really like to be able to search multiple calendars so that you can see it all in one place.

Pros: I like it a lot and my contacts really appreciate that we don't have to go back and forth to find a suitable date/time to connect for a phone call or to meet in person. The appointment is added automatically to my calendar with an option to delete/decline it. Highly recommended!

Cons: Is there a way to customize the "gmail" text label on the upper right hand side, For the calendar entry, I am hoping to be able to customize it instead of just the default "booked: First name Email". It would also be great if there is a way to bookend an appointment to allow for travel time without actually blocking them off on your calendar.

Overall: Saves me and my contacts a lot of time!

I have used YouCanBookMe to assist clients who call in and need to set up an appointment

Pros: You can immediately see the availability of the person by going to this link without having to send multiple emails especially in the busiest hour of the day when you know your boss can't reply right away! This allows both parties to be notified the confirmation of booking.

Cons: The only concern I have is that it only allows to book a 30-minute meeting, because sometimes there are short meetings that would only cost 15 minutes or as long as 45 minutes. I hope they have better plan for this in the future.

Overall: This is an awesome application that lets you manage your meetings with ease and notification is also great!

Pros: I like the customizable scheduling options. You can schedule for an individual or for a group, can automate a consecutive schedule, customize the reminders and it has calendar sync with google, iCloud and Microsoft calendar, so you can sync more than one calendar. You can create workflows and add your emails directly as a completed task.

Cons: You get charged if you want to add more than one calendar. In my case, I have two different calendars: one for my personal appointments and one for my work. It has problems with apple devices.

Overall: Very easy to use and very fancy.
