Calendly Is the Personal Assistant I Need.

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Calendly is my favorite app in my tech stack. I love the high level of easy to implement customization in appointment types, availability calendars etc. In addition to inbound appointment setting, I have used the meeting polls feature to schedule group sessions and it simplifies everything creating an efficient and speedy process. I highly recommend Calendly.

Pros:

Calendly is very clear and easy to use and customize. In the time I have been using it, they have improved clarity and increased the level of customization possible. I never get frustrated with Calendly because the way to accomplish what I want is either right in front of me or easily explained in the very accessible resources.

Cons:

I would love to be able to add my brand colors and fonts to my scheduling interfaces. I am able to customize most messaging and add my logo to the pages but being able to carry the color scheme across would be *chef's kiss*

Good piece of software

4.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Good support, solid product that does what it says on the tin.

Pros:

The allocation of resource based on a scoring system. I needed a calendar solution that would allocate my team ahead of me so I could focus on mgmt tasks rather than customer demos

Cons:

It's not cheap and the allocation functionality could be improved for the price to do different things. As a team manager I was hoping the app would let me see all of my teams bookings and diaries in one place

Sales team promise but don't deliver

3.0 2 months ago New

Comments: The actual app is excellent. Support is very poor and unprofessional causing me to waste my time

Pros:

It's a good app that I'm definitely going to use! The creators did a great job!

Cons:

However, the hired staff promise but don't deliver. The agent I was chatting with assured me that the account would be in trial until 7th March. However, it was disabled on 2nd March. I think she either forgot or didn't bother after the conversation finished. Very disapointed!

An essential tool for global teams

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: 10/10. Calendly has saved me countless hours, money, and mistakes in my business!

Pros:

Calendly helps me effortlessly schedule with clients around the globe without having to manually schedule meetings. This saves me time and money, and gives me the peace of mind that I will never make mistakes with time zones, especially during daylight savings!

Cons:

I would love it if Calendly developed the function in the future for someone to book one recurring meeting out of an option of many meeting times, and then not be able to book again for another meeting. This would be ideal for setting up group coaching programs and allowing coachees to pick the time that works best for them, without double booking in other groups as well.
