Have you ever tried to plan a meeting or a catch-up and found it tricky because everyone is busy? Sometimes, you send a message saying, “Can we meet at 3?” and get a reply, “No, can’t do 3. What about 4?” This back and forth can go on for a while and ends up being a bit of a mess and a waste of time.




Calendly steps in to make all this easier. It’s like a friendly assistant that helps sort out when you can meet people without all those messages going back and forth.

When you use Calendly, you tell it when you are free. Then, it gives you a link. You can send this link to anyone who needs to meet you. They click on the link, see when you are free, and pick a time that works for them. No more back and forth!

Getting Started with Calendly

Getting started with Calendly is really easy. Their website talks you through each step, so you don’t get lost. You just tell Calendly about your free times and how long your meetings are. Then, it gives you a special link that you can share with anyone you want to meet.

So, what’s the good stuff about using Calendly?

  • Saves Time: You don’t have to send lots of messages to plan a meeting.
  • No Mistakes: Sometimes, planning gets mixed up because of time zones or forgetting times. Calendly knows about all the different time zones and helps avoid mix-ups!
  • You’re in Control: You only share times when you’re actually free. So, you won’t get a meeting when you wanted to take a break.

Is it perfect?

No tool is perfect, and Calendly has a couple of tiny drawbacks to keep in mind:

  • It’s Online: If you or the people you want to meet aren’t great with computers or phones, it might be a bit tricky at first.
  • Free Version Limits: The free version is awesome, but if you want all the extra cool features, there is a fee.
