Meetings, appointments, phone calls, interviews, presentations, you name it. Running a business without efficient scheduling is simply not an option. There are more scheduling apps out there today than ever, but we'd like to show you one that's especially practical and powerful.
How Does Calendly Work?
The core function of Calendly is pretty simple. First, you set your availability and scheduling preferences. It then allows you to send a link to whoever you want to schedule with so that they can confirm a date and time based on the information you provided. Upon confirmation, the arrangement is added to your calendar. It's designed to prevent double-bookings and conflicts, in addition to many other functions that optimize scheduling efficiency. Calendly is offered as a free Basic version or paid Premium and Pro versions. Depending on which one you subscribe to, you'll get different degrees of versatility from its feature set.
Integration & Compatibility
In addition to its simplicity, Calendly is known for its powerful and practical integration features. It works perfectly in conjunction with Google, Office 365, and Outlook, and with the Pro version you get integration with Salesforce, Stripe, and PayPal. Compatibility is also notable when considering Calendly. Whether you're using a desktop computer or a mobile device, it's designed to function on multiple device types. Fortunately, the people you send your invitation links to won't need to be subscribed to Calendly, ensuring usability for everyone you schedule with. You can even embed it into your website to provide instant access for your visitors.
No matter how powerful or sophisticated it is under the hood, a piece of software needs a sharp and usable interface. This can make or break its success as a tool. Fortunately, Calendly is beautifully and ingeniously designed. Its user-friendliness is impressive considering the flexibility and range of features it offers. As mentioned above, the interface works just as well on a smartphone or tablet as it does on a desktop computer. This is a must-have feature for any professional or business owner who needs a practical scheduling solution without having to be at their desk. If it sounds like a tool you've been needing, give it a try!
