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.

CH

Chris H.

I liked the ability to schedule meetings with the calendar and the ability to share it with others to schedule on your calendar without having to have outlook or google calendar.

AS

Ann S.

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.

Pros

It's VERY user friendly, has a lot of options for personalization and is great money for value. The customer service is also very friendly and reactive.

DB

Daniella B.

They are so helpful and accommodating to the members. They continue to make BLAB better, it's the best scheduling software with lots of flexibility.

Anonymous Reviewer

It's been a great, user-friendly experience. I love how it integrates with Google Calendar.

Cons

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.

AR

Anonymous Reviewer

Disappointed with this and strongly recommend against going down this road. The Outlook integration is broken, the patch does not work.

KC

KYLE C.

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.

PS

Phil S.

Cons

It was a little hard to get set up initially, both within the software and integrating with my Google calendar. Having multiple places to change the same function was frustrating at times.

Jason C.

It's also frustrating that partial payments/deposits cannot be set up through the system.

GC

G.D. C.

Their calendar widget loads AFTER the header and footer has loaded. It may confuse someone who is looking on such an app for the first time.

Calendly

The most used Calendar for bookings.

Reviewed 2 years ago

This is the booking calendar I regularly use for basic meetings with leads. Eventually when my business grew i changed over to more advanced options.

Pros

This is one of the most used booking calendars in the market and it is very easy to use. A lot of the options on the free version are what you will most probably need in a small business operation.

Cons

Lacks several useful and advanced features that other competitors like ScheduleOnce and Book Like A Boss have.

Book Like a Boss - Full Featured Calendar Scheduling

Reviewed 3 years ago

I've been using it for over a year. I switched from Calendly and haven't looked back. More bang for my buck with Book Like a Boss.

Pros

The calendar page has tons of features including: Contact Information About Section Ability to book multiple types of appointments. Special follow up messages for each appointment type. Unique buffer times and availability for each appointment type. Testimonials for credibility

Cons

Due to the large number of features, you need to be careful when setting it up to ensure everything is setup properly.

Book Like A Boss

The last booking tool you'll ever need

Reviewed 3 years ago

I love everything about them. I've replaced Calendly, paypal and checkout pages with them. I just send a client a link to my booking page, they book and pay, and it's all done. Before I had to send them to a checkout page, then once they paid, I'd need to send them a calendly link. It's made scheduling and consulting so much easier. I'm a Boss for life.

Pros

- Customers can pay and book at the same time - Complete customization of the booking pages - Granular control over times availability and dates available. - Can connect my Zoom account, rooms are created automatically - Can setup as many reminders as I need - Easy for me or clients to reschedule if needed - Connects to all my google calendars - Can connect my own domain

Cons

- can't customize the emails. Not a big deal because I like the emails as they are, but still would like to be able to customize them.

Vendor response

Thank you Aaron, it is truly an honor to have you on board! Keep Rocking the SaaS!

A Nice Cheap Booking Platform

Reviewed 2 years ago

It's been good so far and no complaints in set up or use!

Pros

The biggest plus is I got this on an Appsumo deal for $49 lifetime and it's good booking software that has a lot of the standard features and functionality with a little more design leeway.

Cons

It's still not as streamlined and easy to use and set up as something like Calendly is but also feel this gives more of a personal feel to the customer.

The Boss (but not the replacement)!!!

Reviewed 3 years ago

I have people scheduling time with me through my BLAB link MULTIPLE times per week. It's amazing!

Pros

BLAB (as it's known) works REALLY WELL as a personal calendar. As a CEO, my time is valuable... but for certain people, I want them to have access to me. This allows for that, very easily. I also LOVE that they give you your own mini website, that more or less acts as a personal site if you want it to.

Cons

It's not built for team scheduling, and doesn't have some of the more advanced features you'd get from other apps like Calendly or ScheduleOnce. BUT... it is really good at what it does (see 'Pros')

A BREEZY SCHEDULER

I have recommended it to over 50 of my friends.

Pros

I love being able to set up appointments and embed the code into my website with it. The details on customization is stellar and I just LOVE BOOK LIKE A BOSS. I have officially switched from calendly to Book Like a BOSS.

Cons

It does have a lot of options that are not necessarily intuitive

Book Like A Boss: Not Perfect, but Close!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Book Like A Boss is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a product that can schedule, market and sell—all at the same time. If you're looking for a wunderkind that does just one of these things, you can probably find a SAAS product that would be less expensive overall, but you can't go wrong with Book Like A Boss, a product that really can do it all.

Pros

At its core, Book Like A Boss, as its name implies, is primarily an online appointment SAAS solution, ala Calendly, You Can Book Me and the like—but it goes well beyond these basics to add group scheduling, products and services with online payment, a mini-web page, client database and more. Flexibility is its best attribute.

Cons

This isn't exactly a "negative," but the company's aggressive product roadmap means you're signing on for changes always oriented toward customer improvement.

Just what I needed

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

I was using Calendly and switched to Book Like a Boss a few months ago. It has allowed me to consolidate two products into one as I can not only show my booking calendar, but have people fill out a custom questionnaire at the same time. It's really hard to beat for the price. I love that it syncs with my Google calendar.

Cons

Sometimes the interface is a little confusing.

BLAB is a Completely Game Changer

Reviewed 3 years ago

Phenomenal, I'm a big fan!

Pros

I was a big fan of Calendly before BLAB came into the picture but being the early-adopter that I am, I decided to take the plunge and WOW, was it worth it. I've been using BLAB for an entire year and I don't any reason to leave. The team is very responsive and the software works perfect for my needs. I am always referring my clients to BLAB.

Cons

I wish I was able to edit the email messages that are sent from BLAB so I can make it more personal. I also wish there was an zapier action to cancel a booking.

I've been using book like a boss for close to a year, and love it!

Reviewed 3 years ago

I've tried using multiple other calendars (acuity, you can book me, calendly, etc), and love book like a boss over the rest of the other ones. Some of the main points I was looking for were: Facebook pixel integration, ease of use, pretty interface with sections to load content into (videos, images, etc), and robust reminders built in. To my knowledge, this is the only platform that will allow you...

Pros

- Facebook pixel integration - texting and email reminders are incredibly robust - multiple time options and customization for thank you pages - simple and easy to use interface - calendar iframe embedding works great

Cons

- Multiple calendar options on the main page can offer too many calendar options to everyone, when you might want to constrain it to certain scenarios - creating a thank you page redirect requires you to use a different platform versus a built-in native thank you page builder - simple and easy to use interface doesn't allow for more customization, which can be a blessing and a curse
