Calendly is My Favorite Scheduling App

Used weekly for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2020-07-14
Review Source: Capterra

My overall experience has been great. Calendly has allowed me to schedule meetings with many different people in an organized manner.

Pros
I like the ability to share a link and have people find the times I am available to meet with me. It's perfect because it syncs with my calendar and will notify me when I have a meeting.

Cons
I would have to say the price to upgrade is the only thing I wish was cheaper.

A contender in the crowded marketplace of appointment schedulers

Used occasionally for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2020-11-10
Review Source: Capterra

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.

I am using for more than 1 year and I do not think about other option.

Pros
I think it is the cheaper (or free!!!) option with the best features possible to online bookings of meetings. It has a beautiful and light design, it is fast and I love the (free) possibility of connection with zoom.

Cons
The price is ok, but they could offer a better price for non-profits. And when the user removes an event, could be possible to change to another hour and send invitation to the person that requested it to confirm.

Almost free calendar scheduling service

Used weekly for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

Calendly has a good intention to bring free scheduling software to the market, but I think I would be happier if there is more features.

Pros
Calendly is free for individuals but it also has an enterprise option for a very cheap price. This tool provides a good automated scheduling and other services for free and makes it easy to schedule and reschedule the meeting.

Cons
The free option only include some barebone features, it is good for individuals but the gap between business version and the free version is big. There is also a limit in the free version.

Pros
Calendly, is a good idea, but it is too expensive for the limited functionality they provide. If you have a Gsuite account you can make a public calendar so that people can schedule during the times you allowed.

Review Source: Capterra

Overall positive, it works well for quite a few industries, our operational structure was just a little different that it didn't mesh super well together but still a good option.

Pros
I liked having a free trial to play around with it and get used to it. It's a popular system and I knew many people who had used it. Plus on a small business level the pricing is really low cost.

Cons
I tried setting up one of my people with two calendars based on existing clients and new clients that we wanted to keep separate. After a long time looking on the support docs with no success I emailed support, they were helpful and what I found out was that we needed two separate calendars for the same person whereas I know other scheduling software had the option to separate them out so we switched.

Review Source: Capterra

I use Calendly to embed a "Book an Introductory Meeting" conversion on my landing pages. Way better than an "Interested? Contact me now!" form. The service integrates with my Google Calendar so that meetings only happen when I'm available, and the meeting shows up on my calendar after it's booked -- no need to check appointments in the Calendly admin panel. The integration with Zoom and Hangouts is awesome. My client and I both get a link auto-emailed so there's no need for me to send a followup with details of how we'll meet.

Pros
Free tier features feel like you have a full plan Zoom and Hangouts integration is awesome Easily embed minimally-branded widget in your own website Calendar integrations with Google Calendar, Office 365, Outlook and iCloud

Cons
Free tier can only book a single appointment type. For me, this is totally sufficient and the first paid tier is really reasonably-priced. If you need multiple appointment types, you can probably afford the monthly cost

Great scheduler, really nice user interface

Review Source: Capterra

I really like Calendly and their interface, I just wish their freemium service was more robust. I would have definitely chosen them if I could have done more with the free version. Overall, I've only had good experiences with them, as both a business and a user.

Pros
I really like Calendly. I think their UX and UI is great and I like how easy it is to customize the UI. I think they're reasonably priced and make it easy for businesses to manage their scheduling. It's also really easy for users to schedule time and the calendar integration is great.

Cons
I didn't end up going with Calendly only because I'm a solopreneur and the freemium offering wasn't robust enough for what I needed. I am now paying for a service, but when I started I needed something cheap (free) and that would solve my bare minimum problems, unfortunately Calendly did not do this.

Calendly filled a gap that previous auto-scheduling vendors could not solve by providing a simple and cost-effective integration that has allowed us to schedule over 2000 meetings in the last 4-5 months, saving hundreds of hours for our teams.

Accurate - integrates with calendars quickly, with no instances of double-booking Real time - appointments show up immediately once booked Easy integration - a few clicks and you're ready to go! Trial - 30 day free trial, great for testing and getting a good sense of how it works
