Easy, Set It & Forget It, Manage Appointments Within Google Calendar!

I’ve been using Koalendar for a year with 147 bookings & counting. I coordinate experiments for my lab & the back & forth of scheduling required SO many emails at all times of the day. Giving colleagues the power to view my availability & schedule themselves has been incredibly freeing. They can book at any time of day, any day of the week (I have mine set to allow this, but you can limit how far out people can book). Koalendar is a constantly being updated & new features are always being added. I have 4 booking pages (for different “tasks”) & had a linkt.ree to let colleagues choose the appropriate page - but now Koalendar has a feature that does that for you! One less thing to manage! It might take a bit of playing with the settings to get it the way that works best for you & your team/customers - but the little time it takes to work out is WELL spent & once it’s set up, you may not even need to look at your booking page again! Importantly - you can cancel & reschedule appointments *directly in Google calendar*. I almost never go to the Koalendar website proper because I see the appointments on my Google Calendar. I’ve sent 2-3 emails to Koalendar & the emails are answered *the same day*. They also genuinely want & appreciate feedback re: current and new features. I filled out a survey about potential changes and actually asked to keep something the same - and it *was* kept the same!

PROS

It’s easy! The free version worked well for my needs, pro is even better (<$7 a month? $84 a year) - and I’m actually just happy to pay for this service since it has improved my work life so much! Your opinion actually matters (re: feedback on features, etc.), emails are answered promptly (same day!) & new features are constantly being developed & added! It’s so refreshing to use a tool that is actively being updated. I use a different tool for managing inventory & that tool has a graveyard forum for requests…that is NOT the experience with Koalendar. Your feedback truly matters & you genuinely feel like your opinion impacts the development. I can’t say enough good things.

CONS

Gosh, nothing. No cons. I’m a die hard Koalendar fan & honestly can’t say enough good things. Anything that helps you streamline information is A+ & the price is great. (P.S. I just saw that there’s also a discount available for educators and non-profits!) The only 1 thing I can think of - which is solely due to my organization - is that it’s not compatible with the organization’s Outlook accounts by default, and it would require people to individually allow access to Koalendar. BUT this is NOT an issue for the folks who use Google Calendar within my organization.

MY search paid off - I found exactly what I was looking for. Simple and efficient solution.

Being a teacher and a consultant - it's imperative for me to help people get in touch with me in a simple and organized way.

PROS

Intuitive, user-friendly, great UI. It does exactly what I need it to do - enables people to book slots with me easily, even those who are not tech-savvy. On the other hand, I can choose to have more than one person booking a slot with me at the same time. I was so happy to stumble upon this awesome calendar that I have subscribed to, bookmarked, and told everyone about it.

CONS

It took me forever to find it! Had I not been stubborn and determined to comb the internet for the right product - I would have never found it. My search lasted for about 10 days, in the Internet era - that's forever, many would have given up (we are used to getting a million hits in a single search). It might have been my poor description of what I needed while searching for it, but such a great tool should be on the first search page when I type calendar in the search box. Also, I expect Koalendar to make it to the list of Best Calendar Tools 2021 on many different websites. :)

Reasons for switching to Koalendar

Google couldn't provide what I needed, having the option to book more than one person in one time slot;

Koalendar Review

PROS

The interface is very simple and it was really quick to set up and I loved how it seamlessly integrated with my google calendar

CONS

I’ve had difficulties integrating it another google calendar outside my organization. The paid version is too expensive for for the additional features it provides. Doesn’t really provide justification to pay almost $10/monthly for the upgrade.
