I'm in control of my appointment with Calendly

It allows me to keep in control of my appointment and saved us a lot of time.

Pros

I like how Calendly integrates to icloud. Its simple interface and easy-to-create events features makes it a must-have app for all your appointments (also great for paid consultation/lessons as you can collect money from the app (paid version only)). It is easy to create an event type (one-on-one or group), and there lots of options available : event duration date range, even time zone. I like how easy it is to apply an appointment to dates / intervals / specific recurring days and how you can implement buffers (before and after events) You can ask invitees questions before the appointment, which is nice to have, since it allows you to save time once your client is online. I immensely appreciate how Calendly offers all types of notification options (email reminders, follow-up and text reminders.) When creating an event, you can choose what type of location you want (in-person, phone call, google meet, zoom.) You don't have to get in touch with your invitee to tell them how you want to meet them. You can add Calendly to your website (even the free version) through a small widget, which makes it easy for your clients to get in touch.

Cons

Most integrations are only available on paid plans, and the free version is very limited but the company also needs to make money, so that's very understandable.

Reasons for switching to Calendly

too expensive (Motion). Missing functionality (doodle)

My Go-To for Scheduling

When I first selected calendly, I was using doodle, and someone recommended this as a better app to schedule meetings. I was surely in for a surprise. This app is efficient, customisable enough, and just does the job right. Since starting, I now have an automatic response when someone mentions wanting to meet up - I identify the correct calendly link to send. "The right link" actually means something here. I have a few appointment types: - Zoom meeting - In person meeting - Paid consultation - Recreational meetup Sometimes, I meet an old friend, and it's so much easier to have them select a time and suggest it, but calendly automates it, because now I can set parameters and they can schedule that hang-out at a mutually convenient time. It requires some discipline, because you will need to put your engagements onto the calendar (I've had double bookings because I didn't put my plans into my calendar before) but now I understand the benefit, it works perfectly.

Pros

My favourite part of calendly is the ability to set a variety of appointment types, and even include paid appointments which all integrate directly into my calendar

Cons

I'm not sure there is a con here. I wanted group scheduling for meetings, and now they have it - even though I haven't used it as yet.

Reasons for switching to Calendly

Doodle is nowhere close to being as effective as Calendly, and at the time, I was usign Doodle to schedule group meetings, and didn't have a personal meeting scheduler, which was integrated into my calendar. Calendly did that.

Very Easy To Use

It was okay, I may try them out again at the ending of the year.

Pros

This software is much easier to use compared to the others, but I was looking to combine my social media pages and this software wasn't listed as one to do that for me.

Cons

Cannot link to social media pages so customers can book that way.

Reasons for switching to Calendly

Customers couldn't send deposit while booking at the same time.

Not User Friendly for Invitees

Glad it is not my primary scheduler. Your feedback does not allow for screenshots to be attached. Frustrated end user.

Pros

This software is used by an organization I volunteer with. It does not provide enough information to the invitee to make it functional to use on our end. Basically, I do not like this software, and which they would use Google Calendar, Outlook, or any Doodle Poll instead.

Cons

Every time I get an invite from the organization I volunteer with, it does not show the date or the time but does give me the option of canceling or rescheduling a meeting for which I have no information. It does not provide me a link to add to my calendar (Google Calendar), which is extremely important to the invitee.
