The perfect tool for solving the scheduling back and forth
Comments: I love it. I use it every day. I tell everyone I know to use it. It solves the biggest problem. There are a few AI-powered exec assistant tools, but... why bother? That still forces the other person to do the multi-email "what times work?" "oh not for me, how about these" "okay, where do you want to meet" dance. This is a single email.
Pros: Calendly does exactly what you need it to do: it takes scheduling a meeting with someone down from a 6 or 7 email affair to a 1 or 0 email affair. This is transformative. I can simply send my lunch URL to someone and let THEM book a date that I can guarantee is up-to-the-minute accurate, ask the questions I want to ask (where should we eat?), and gather additional contact information, all without the risk of it getting lost in the shuffle. I did 135 networking lunches last year, entirely powered by Calendly. It's brilliant, because it ends in the result we all need: a mutual calendar invite that we both agree works for us. Add things like buffer times, clever event types, and linking up with my contacts with Zapier and man is this the easiest $8/mo I could ever spend.
Cons: Nothing. It's basically perfect. I wish that, when using someone _else's_ Calendly to book, it'd look at my schedule and black out bad dates, but that's a nit to pick. I'd also like it to auto-advance to the next available window if there are no more dates on the initial screen.

Probably the best appointment scheduler. Simple and Cost Effective.
Comments: Calendly allows to quickly set up and manage an appointment based system for ANY business. I like the software and I would recommend to other. Clean, simple, effective and does what it says on the tin!
Pros: Calendly is easy to setup on first use and very easy to use generally. The basic features of the software are offered for free. So you get a chance to get a good use of the software, whilst also having access to some pretty neat basic features. If your booking a high number of appoinments per day/week then, the paid features and integrations just make it all that better!
Cons: All team abilities are part of the paid features, however I feel this could work better having maybe up to two users for free, provided they are using the same company domain. I say this because many small business will have one person responsible for booking appoinments, or may want to allocate to a PA/VA.

Comments: I am able to keep up with my appointments and my clients are able to schedule an appointment at any given time.
Pros: That my clients can see when I am available and choose a time that works for their schedule as well.
Cons: if I could have a feature where the client can pay at the time of the appointment or give them capability to put a deposit down and if the appointment is kept it is automatically refunded.

Bad technical support team - made us lose money AND now asked fro upgrade
Comments: I was fairly happy with Calendly, even though it was more expensive than its competitors. It looks great on mobile and pretty simple to set up. However, we had a very unique situation with our booking and I reached out to their team about it and explained it all. Of course, since I was not a paying member, all the answers were "yes you can" ... and they even showed me how to do it. I thought all was working, until a few months down the road, I found that actually, we have been losing booking (paid) potentials all along because of some conflicting issues their team forgot to mention (or just made a mistake in their advice). I reached out and their solution was for us to PAY MORE for another user account. They even owned up to making the mistake of giving bad advice. I offered them a compromise and they stayed with their position I need to pay for a whole extra account. Now we are stuck with them.
Pros: Looks great on mobile. Easy to use. Allows capture of utm_source
Cons: At the time I signed up, there was really nothing stopping me... until I found out their support team led me to paying 2x than I should be.

Versatile and extraordinary programming tool that can be used by any company.
Comments: Thanks to Calendly, it is much simpler to arrange meetings between teams, colleagues or clients and this is because the emails that arrive late are left aside to warn that you have a meeting or an interview, and take a pleasant experience of automatic programming that makes that the user is aware of the time available to be able to use it in the correct way.
Pros: Calendly greatly facilitates the programming needs of any professional or company and this is because it is a tool with a very versatile interface that makes it an easy program for anyone to use, it is able to integrate with fairly common tools such as Microsoft Outlook for an optimal organization, as well as an easy way to maintain a communication or start a meeting with a client, because for this it is only necessary to send a link to whoever you want, the day that suits your time more so that you do not know see any activity interrupted, because all this is possible because this tool gives the user the ability to customize everything according to their available days.
Cons: Calendly could implement new functions that make the user's life even easier, since it is not possible to establish different places for the same time.
