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.

Pros

Google Maps is a superior directions service due to its ability to provide biking directions, while still maintaining the same (or better) quality of directions to its competitors.
Great experience I would highly recommend it to anyone family or friend cause I know it would be a great experience.
Traffic and satellite views are very helpful. Directions are the best in google maps, has turn and lane directions that are very helpful in big cities.

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.

Cons

Some highways, the instruction can be unclear which causes me to take the wrong exit or wrong lane.
My only issue is the arrow has problems with calibration. So sometimes it shows me that I'm heading a direction that I'm not headed and I end up getting lost.
The app has some issues with crashing at very bad times(when I have no idea where I am). Also this app has taken me to the wrong house very often.

Pros

I use calendly for my in market sales trips. Its been a very useful tool to organize meetings.

Cons

On android it does not allow for the address listed in the meeting to be clicked, I have have to manually type the address to maps. But my coworkers uses it on apple and it works fine.

Once you learn to use this, you'll love it

Reviewed 6 years ago

I love how the people that make an appointment with me don't have to create a Calendly account. It also sends me and the other person a confirmation when the date has been set.

Pros

Checks all my Google Calendars for availabilities, reads across multiple Google accounts.

Cons

Just recently, Calendly started reading my Google Calendar all-day events (which were daily reminders) as me being busy all day, which blocked out my entire day of availabilities. Setup can be a trial and error process because the blocks of time can vary based on how you set it up.

I have not used it as an administrator, so my overall experience has been neutral.

It is a nice way to give others access to make an appointment without giving them access to your calendar.

A contender in the crowded marketplace of appointment schedulers

Reviewed 2 years ago

A satisfactory product but it does not really stand out in the crowded field of appointment schedulers ranging from free and up. It's strong integration with Google Calendar helps makes this a platform that is worth looking at if your office relies on Google Calendar like ours.

Pros

Easy syncing to Google Calendar is vital in preventing double bookings of appointments. Integration with Google Calendar is strong on this platform.

Cons

The user interface has a cheap feel to it and while its price may seem low, it's only an appointment scheduler so it's surprising they do not try to do more to make the interface more robust feeling.

Not the Best

Reviewed 10 months ago
Pros

I've used Google Calendar since forever ago. Maybe I'm too loyal at this point. One of my direct supervisors started using Calendly so I was asked to help manage their calendar a bit. It got the job done but it wasn't all that. I tried to use it for myself but it also didn't do more than what I already get from Google.

Cons

Compared to Google, Calendly did not offer appointments during open slots. I know you can control what availability you have but even with open availability, it was not showing that my supervisor was available even when their Google calendar was. I worked around it but it didn't make me feel like I could trust it the same as Google.

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

Reviewed 4 years ago

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

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.

AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME

Reviewed 2 years ago

It's been great! I know that people can schedule seamlessly and that I can connect Calendly to Google Sheets or Google Calendar to know who has signed up and which slots are filled.

Pros

I love Calendly. I was setting up a scheduling tool for the Superintendent to have 7 people sign up for 15-minute timeslots at a time, and it worked beautifully. I love that I can limit each person to sign up once with a single-use link, eliminating the worry that one person will schedule more than one slot. We also automated with Zapier to fill a Google Sheet so that others could have access, and that was awesome.

Cons

Can't complain; I love it! Calendly could enable automation with other tools, but that's just a suggestion for future use.

Calendly eliminates all your appointment hassles

Reviewed a year ago

All in all, for a company that owns Microsoft Office 365 subscription and does major functioning using platforms like Microsoft Teams, Outlook, etc. Calendly is a good option due to its easy integration with Microsoft platforms.

Pros

Calendly is seriously turned out to be my hub for scheduling meetings efficiently. I really love the fact that now I don't have to write emails mentioning my availability. All those hassles have been eliminated from my and my teammates' work life.

Cons

While it supports integration with Microsoft Teams and Zoom, I feel that Google meet should also be there as an option. Due to the lack of this, my Google workspace seems a little useless to me.

Great experience!

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

After looking through other similar programs, I found Calendly to be the one that could offer me exactly what I needed and at a competitive price. Not only does Calendly allow me to schedule multiple events with subsequent follow up emails and such, but it also links up to my Google calendar so I am always up to date about what is going on. I love that it is user friendly and that I am able to navigate very easily though my dashboard. The only time I encountered a hiccup, with some event dates appearing as unavailable when they should have been open, I was able to resolve the issue myself using their "Help" page.

Cons

The only con I would have is that it doesn't seem as if I can separate my events on Calendly to separate events on Google Calendar. It only allows me to link to one calendar on Google.
