    Why do users choose Calendly?

    What would users change about Calendly?

    Pros
    The ability to control your calendar is second to none, add that to some great integrations like with Zoom and it is really a great productivity tool. Easily add a widget to any webpage.
    I love how easy it is for me to be able to send a link to clients for them to schedule an appointment to speak with me. It's very customizable, and connects seamlessly with Google calendar.
    I love this product -- one of the handful I am so happy to pay for. It saves me so much time scheduling meetings, and I love the customization and automation.
    Cons
    Disappointed with this and strongly recommend against going down this road. The Outlook integration is broken, the patch does not work.
    Honestly cant think of much to dislike. The only thing that comes to mind is that sometimes the app that is supposed to sync my outlook calendar with my Calendly will crash for no reason.
    I got a little confused at one point when people were unable to schedule time with me because the time for the appointment was too close to the time of scheduling.

    Paid for itself 1000 times over

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Calendly is like having a virtual assistant that costs me pennies per day, but helps me earn significantly more income because it allows me to skip wasting any time playing schedule tag with people. Now that I've realized how amazing it is, the fact that I ever got caught up in playing "schedule tag" with people seems mind boggling. I book everything from client calls, sales calls, podcasting recordings and even just networking conversations with people.

    Pros

    Calendly is simple, clean, and a MASSIVE time saver. For what a few hours of a VA might cost, Calendly has paid for itself after the first few bookings. It's very easy for the client to use as well, it's not cluttered like some other scheduling software programs are, and having an APP is solid gold. I love being able to get real time notifications of appointments and cancellations and handle all of that from my phone when necessary. The ability to customize availability and create multiple availability calendars for different events is another brilliant asset. I can integrate with PayPal and take payments for appointment bookings, it's simply brilliant.

    Cons

    Workflows are a useful tool, but still feel a little bit clunky. I like that they are there, but setting them up could be a little bit smoother. mind you, perhaps I'm comparing this to something like Zapier which is an incredible task management software.

    Solid App with Robust Features, UX Leaves Room for Improvement

    Reviewed 2 months ago
    Pros

    I love Calendly's configuration flexibility, ample feature set, and no lack of customization options. The booking interface is clean and simple—as it should be—and the drip email capabilities are fantastic.

    Cons

    The user interface on both the desktop and mobile sites leaves something to be desired at this price point. In particular, the menu to configure options for Event Types is clunkier than it needs to be—and requires far more clicking than necessary. I'm surprised this hasn't been addressed. Meanwhile, the recent refresh of the Workflows menu was a major step in the right direction.

    Missing key features, sneaky billing for empty seats

    Reviewed 5 months ago

    Awful. Lots of lost time and money. Now we need to start over with implementation of another system (likely SavvyCal), plus pay for both for at least a month or two for overlap during the transition.

    Pros

    It was our first foray into using meeting scheduler links. It was a time saver for scheduling client meetings, and it streamlined communication with clients. No more going back and forth to negotiate dates and times. It was better than Squarespace's built in Acuity forms (at least based on our experience with those in 2021), but that's not saying much.

    Cons

    There are dozens of other tools out there that provide this same functionality, and Calendly makes zero effort to come out on top. Deal breakers include 1. not being able to edit availability or any other settings for one-off meetings after you click the button (can't count how many times I had to start over from scratch); 2. not relaying the chosen event title to the calendar event; 3. forcing this...

    Great Scheduling Tool with lots of features and a clean look.

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    I haven't integrated it enough into my business model, but I plan to much more in the coming months as we continue to grow!

    Pros

    I love the look of Calendly. It's visually appealing. I like how it integrates with my Google Calendar seamlessly. It's automated reminder and follow up system is fantastic and saves me a ton of time!

    Cons

    I had some trouble at first not having duplicate appointments post to my Google Calendar, but I seem to have fixed it, and I believe it was more user error than anything. Not a knock on Calendly.

    The reference in calendar appointment software

    Reviewed 2 months ago
    Pros

    Calendly is dead simple to implement, use and publish so customers can book appointments. You can have any number of appointment types, each customized with required fields, questions, etc. so when you start an appointment, you have all the information you need.

    Cons

    Nothing to dislike really! It's affordable, simple and intuitive.
