Appointment Scheduling

Calendly Helping You Get Organised

Calendly is a powerful yet simple automated scheduling tool, as well as so much more. It saves you time by scheduling digital meetings without the back-and-forth emails! Simply put, it takes the work out of connecting with others so that you can accomplish more. Furthermore, it is fully automated. As a result, I never need to be informed before a digital meeting is scheduled with me, nor do I need to send emails to cancel appointments. Calendly simply does the running around for me.

Millions of users benefit from an enjoyable scheduling experience on this platform, and I don’t doubt that you would too. It goes without saying that in this new freelance economy, digital meetings are becoming the norm, and Calendly provides flexibility to accommodate individual users and large teams alike.

Before writing this article, I asked myself why I consider this to be the number one scheduler (so that I could answer it for you in creating this content). One such reason is that Calendly works with Google, Office 365, and Outlook calendars so chances are you don’t need to change what you’re already working with. In addition, Calendly embeds within a website super easily soyou can be certain that your co-workers, clients, and suppliers will be impressed too… And from sign-up to actually using Calendly is probably about 5 minutes or less. It’s that easy to start setting digital meetings!

There are both free and paid-for versions of this scheduling tool. The paid-for version allows multiple types of digital meetings to be live at the same time. Another benefit of the paid-for version is the ability to take payments using Stripe for a seamless user experience. Furthermore, you can also deliver an experience that aligns with your brand by removing the Calendly branding and customising your profile.

Digital Meetings Made Easy

With so many different appointment scheduler platforms, digital meetings are becoming more difficult to arrange. Technology should make our working lives easier and not more complicated! This is where Calendly comes in and streamlines your digital meeting schedules. Simply create an account, add your availability, and send an invitee a link. They can then click the time and date that they’d like, and it is then emailed to you both.The selected time of the meeting is shared across all your calendars to ensure you are never double booked.

Personally one of my favourite features is that Calendly makes it so easy for both myself or the other party to cancel scheduled appointments and postpone to a more convenient date. This is a great feature for any business owner where things can crop up and alter your availability. Moreover, in any business environment, it can be easy to forget scheduled activities. However, with Calendly, this doesn’t happen. Its handy notification reminders ensure I am always on the ball with what I need to do next.

As if those aren’t enough reasons to give Calendly a try, it also auto-detects your own time zone. This is a huge benefit when setting up digital meetings; if you have international calls, there won’t be any confusion about what time it’ll be. It also means you can easily hire freelancers from Fiverr from all over the world, and use Calendly to easily check in with them from time to time!

In conclusion, I think it’s more than fair to say that Calendly is not just any old scheduler, but a hub for scheduling meetings professionally and efficiently, eliminating the hassle of back-and-forth emails so you can get back to work. Give it a try and let me know how you get on.
