Pros

The customer service's willingness to have conversations about features that are not currently offered and work towards current solutions to find what can and will work has been outstanding.
I was very impressed by this and in the future will absolutely recommend them to friends.
I love this platform because my patients and I all find it easy to use. It's been wonderful having my patients schedule online versus calling me directly.

Pros

I like how i can have a nice way to embed a schedule a time to talk tool right within my website. The free version is robust and easy enough to use that it will be sufficient for most basic users.
No longer do my reps have to go back and forth with prospects about when they can meet, that work is pushed to the prospect and both sides are happy. It is very much a win-win that way.
Cost, feature profile, ease of use, and dedicated application make Calendly an outstanding scheduling option for nearly any business.

Cons

Clients found it confusing at first based on our previous system. We switched because of the added costs and lack of integration with our calendar.
I am very uncomfortable with putting this information in. It should go back to not requiring payment info or at least integrate with PayPal.
Unless you call mindless hours clicking on appointments to determine whether or not a session has been paid for each and every session for each and every client.

Cons

The biggest inconvenience was setting up my work hours after the initial setup. The flow for finding what you need feels disjointed and you can get lost when trying to find the setting you need.
I found that some people - notably older clients - had trouble navigating the software on their end. If your clients are less than technologically literate, this might be a problem for you too.
The biggest problem is I once had a phone interview that I missed because the calendar invite would not load. I did everything I could to find out when the meeting was.

Calendly

A Quick, Drop-In Solution for Basic Scheduling

Reviewed 7 months ago

I utilized Calendly for scheduling interviews for a non-profit organization that I work with on a regular basis, and the site is extremely easy to get set up and create your first scheduling task. As long as you have a single task owner whose schedule needs to be used, the time from initially signing up to sending out your first scheduling task can be as little as 5 or 10 minutes. However, as soon as you need additional features, those upgrades can add up quite a bit quickly. As a result, I recommend Calendly more for users who have basic scheduling needs, rather than large teams who need the advanced features that come with a higher cost. As long as this fits your use case, Calendly is an approachable, easy to use solution that lets you start working right away.

Pros

Quick to get set up, makes it easy to set up new scheduling tasks, portrays a professional image to those who are scheduling tasks

Cons

Upgrades can get expensive rather quickly, does not have the easiest system for scheduling around multiple people's schedules

Calendly is a sleek and good-looking Calendar scheduler

Reviewed a year ago

Calendly allows us to schedule appointments quickly, easily, and without any hassle or confusion.

Pros

Calendly has a lot of customer-facing value by having a very simple and easy-on-the-eyes approach to the calendar. No fluff or extravagant colors to distract or confuse the customer.

Cons

Calendly has a somewhat lower range of options for scheduling appointments across an entire organization, and is better for more single-use/insular appointment scheduling.

Scheduling management

Reviewed 8 months ago

By far time saver for people who are setting up a time to collaborate. For that it saves time than it has been before and more time to focus on other important tasks in the administrative role.

Pros

I loved the fact that it was hassle-free when managing appointments. This reduced the inefficiency of back and forth emailing and phone tagging to set up an interview appointments, which then the reminders is sync to Google Calendar.

Cons

Calendly could combine people's schedules so you can organize timing better. Having a more broader outlook for group scheduling would be awesome, but good start.

Great way to help others schedule meetings with you

Reviewed 4 months ago

Allowing others to schedule time with me with very little communication.

Pros

Easy to set up and hook to a Google Calendar (one or more). It has a nice set of integrations that help connect it with other systems.

Cons

I sometimes wonder whether people actually want to schedule meetings this way - it's not always just about scheduling. It's also not very good for multi-party meetings.

Doesn't schedule well

Reviewed 2 months ago

I don't be continuing with this program. If the free version doesn't work as described I wouldn't pay for the next level.

Pros

It is easy to set up, customize and use. The free trial even allows you to put a picture in for your business.

Cons

When you block off certain times people are still allowed to schedule. I customized each of my days based around my availability, when I had someone go in to try and schedule none of those times were accurate at the scheduling end. Doesn't do me any good if people can schedule when I am not available and I have to track them down to reschedule.

Calendly has scheduling meeting a walk in the park!

Reviewed 2 years ago

1. Like that calendly allows me to schedule a 1:1 and group meetings. I do a lot of recruitment and this software has helped me to seamlessly schedule meetings over a period of one month or two. Calemdly has made me so efficient in my role.

Pros

1. It can easily sync up with my personal G-calendar 2. The client don't get to see other meeting in my calendar but only empty timeslots and schedule a meeting by a click of a button 3. It allows me to schedule 15 through to 1-hour meetings.

Cons

If a candidate or a client or candidate doesn't find a time that works for them I have to manually schedule for more empty slots. If you forget to schedule times that you don't want to have a meeting e.g during lunch break - a client can schedule at that time. As a user, you have to be extra careful when scheduling a meeting via calendly.

Calendly

Great Scheduling Tool for Recruitiers!

Reviewed a year ago

Calendly has been a wonderful tool that we added to help cut the time spent scheduling phone interviews and remove the manual work involved with scheduling. With the amount of interviews we do on a weekly basis we needed some sort of tool where we could remove the unnecessarily exchange of e-mails to navigate schedules and agree on available times to chat. Calendly has done a great job in meeting our needs at an extremely affordable cost!

Pros

Removes the manual work and communication it takes to schedule a meeting. Dramatically reduces the time it takes to schedule. Scheduling is immediate vs. having to wait to hear back on confirmation. Allows you to collect some basic info such as correct phone number to call so that everyone knows how to proceed. Connects seamlessly with our ATS Greenhouse. Auto populates calendar invite directly to my outlook calendar.

Cons

Would love to see a better re-schedule feature from the Account side. As is, if you the account manager and someone has scheduled a meeting through your link - they have they option to re-schedule based on your open availability. However, the account manager only can re-schedule for a time he/she selects with no ability to give the person who originally scheduled the meeting a choice of new meeting date/time. Would love to be able to see re-scheduling options that could be sent from the account asking the person to select a new time from list of current/future availability.

Multiple Calendars and Great Value!

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Before I started using Calendly to schedule appointments I constantly found myself hopping back and forth between various calendar and scheduling platforms. A time consuming and usually unsatisfying adventure each and every time. Calendly changed the game for me though. Creating calendars is a breeze and I love the fact that I can embed them. It makes scheduling meeting with current clients and consultations with prospects a breeze. Oh yeah, one more MAJOR plus for me is that Calendly reminds my client as well as myself about our meeting. I haven't had a missed meeting or client no-show since I've started using it!

Cons

Possibly the perfect cloud scheduling tool there is. No cons.

Time-Saving Meeting Scheduling Software

Reviewed 9 months ago

I work for a television show where we have to schedule multiple weekly meetings between 4-6 executives to discuss notes and scripts, and Calendly makes this process extremely easy and pain-free, where before it always involved a long group email-chain and multiple back and forths to get a time that worked for everyone. I strongly recommend using it to schedule meetings with co-workers.

Pros

I like that it makes the process of scheduling a meeting with multiple people extremely easy and quick. You just mark and send out your available times, every recipient chooses the times that work for them, and you're done. Simple. I also like that the program automatically sends a reminder to everyone and allows you to request anything from a member of the meeting so everyone is prepared with the right material.

Cons

The re-scheduling functionality is a bit clunky and could use some reworking. As is, unless you start a brand new meeting invite, you aren't allowed to re-schedule the original meeting with a bunch of time options, but rather just one selection. And if that selection doesn't work for everybody, you are back to square one and have to send out a different selection. It would be helpful if the re-scheduling function worked exactly like the normal scheduling function, just with a clarifying note that this is a re-scheduled meeting.

Excellent web service for to let the public schedule appointments with you

Overall, a very positive experience. Now that I know the ropes, I can use this service quickly and easily. I'll also be able to show others how to use it.

Pros

I like the fact that Calendly works well with Zoom. I found Calendly's tech support to be outstanding.

Cons

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. Calendly helped me change their setting to let people schedule my time closer to the time of the appointment.

It helped decrease the back-and-forth emails for scheduling one-to-one appointments with my students and saved me lots of time.

Pros

I like the fact that the software is user-friendly and very practical as a scheduling tool. I used it in one of my courses where my students scheduled appointments with me choosing spots from the time frame that I set before and sent them the link for scheduling. It was very easy to figure the features and I enjoyed the availability of different settings.

Cons

There is nothing that I did not like about the software. I am not very familiar with other scheduling tools, but this one should do the job for most scheduling purposes.

Will make your life super simple

Reviewed 2 years ago

Great meeting scheduling software that solves most of the transnational issues with manual scheduling and other tools

Pros

As a user if you need to schedule multiple meetings all day with clients/candidates/external people: this is the tool. The best feature is sharing the up to date calendar link with the external stakeholders and let them decide the meeting time. It sends confirmation mails once meetings are scheduled and saves lot of time and energy going back and forth.

Cons

- If you are trying to schedule a meeting with multiple people at once in different time zones, this can be little tricky - As a user sharing Calendly invites one has to make sure that the calendar is always up to date
