Introducing Calendly Connectors - Applications Open for June 2024 Cohort!

In March, we shared news that Calendly Collective was entering a “what’s next?” phase while we thought wildly, creatively, and ambitiously about the future of customer advocacy here at Calendly.Today, we’ve got some exciting news to share on what’s next.While researching other customer advocacy programs, gathering perspectives from advocates like you, and looking at Calendly’s needs, we kept noticing a recurring theme of wanting “more opportunities to have a meaningful impact or experience.” The individuals we talked to want to provide impactful feedback, have first access to new features, learn and innovate, build meaningful relationships, and more.The short overview is we’re closing down Calendly Collective and standing up a new advocacy program called Calendly Connectors. What’s new and different?While Calendly Collective had elements of a successful customer advocacy program, it was working double-time to be all things to all people. Calendly Connectors will be purpose-built, focusing on the needs of our customer advocates and aligning perfectly with what Calendly needs, too.Calendly Connectors will be an exclusive, cohort-based recognition program with unique opportunities and acclaim. We’ll celebrate your accomplishments with exclusive surprises and perks, access you can’t get anywhere else, and more. So what now?As you’ve likely noticed, activity is slowing down on Calendly Collective. We’ll formally shut down Calendly Collective on June 21, 2024, so be sure to redeem any rewards before then. Rewards not redeemed by then will be forfeited.Calendly Connectors will officially launch with our first cohort of 25 Connectors in mid-June, and we’d love for you to be a part of it. If you want to learn more about the program or nominate yourself for the first cohort, click here. Applications close on May 31, 2024.Thank you for being a part of Calendly Collective. We look forward to seeing many of you in the next chapter of customer advocacy at Calendly!

Some of the Reasons We Love the (Improved) Calendly Browser Extension

Do you ever get the low battery warning on your mouse or trackpad and a fleeting thought of “I just charged it. Again already?” floats through your head? It really shouldn’t be a surprise seeing as we toggle between different apps and websites 1,200 times a day. If you then add in how many clicks you need to make on each website or application, it’s truly a wonder our peripheral devices can make it as long as they do!Needless to say, we’re on board with nearly anything that helps cut down the “toggle tax” which is a big reason why we love browser extensions. But we especially love the Calendly browser extension. Why? We’re so glad you asked. (You were going to ask, right? Right.) Book Meetings Live on a CallIt’s fair to say we’ve all had that awkward moment of “Is next Tuesday at 2pm good? Yeah? Cool” and then realizing you were going to send over your Calendly anyways because it makes booking easier and workflows are life. But now you’re like “But we know the date and time!” which puts you in a bit of a situation. To Calendly link or not to Calendly link?But fear not… anymore. Our new and improved extension can help you skip the scheduling link and book that meeting in real time. Less awkwardness, more efficiency. And best of all? The meeting stays connected to all your glorious automations, including locations, reminders, and notifications.Learn more about scheduling in real time here.   Book Over Blocked Off TimeBut wait. WAIT! There’s more! Have you ever had that moment of “I actually can meet next Tuesday at 12 during my lunch block”. But you really just don’t want to go do the whole remove the block > send the link > someone nabs the open block thing? We get it. When you’re scheduling in real time, you (not to be confused with everyone else) now have the ability to schedule outside available hours, book over internal work blocks, and override rules like minimum scheduling notice - all from the full calendar view.Learn more about booking over meetings here. Keep Track of ContactsWe’re not too proud to admit that sometimes it’ll be about 90 seconds before a meeting when we realize “I have no idea who I’m meeting with and if I’ve met with them before” Queue panicked inbox searching. Did I do this earlier today? Yep.A new feature we’re entirely too excited about is the Contacts tab. This fancy little tab serves a few purposes ranging from saving you in that panicky 90 seconds pre-meeting to facilitating future meetings.If you’re preparing for a meeting, head on over to the Contacts tab and click on the name of the person you’re meeting with. This quick foray lets you see who you’re meeting with, skim contact details, and check out your scheduling history. Goodbye inbox searching!If you’re looking to grab a new chunk of time or plan ahead, Contacts also makes booking time so very easy. Book a new meeting right from your contact’s page from any of your available event types.Learn more about Contacts here.  Want to learn more about the extension and all the cool things it does? Head on over the Calendly Blog to read more.Don’t have the extension yet? Calendly’s extension is free for all users, and it’s available on Chrome, Edge, and Firefox.

Good news for admins: Connect Zoom once for faster team scheduling

Behind every organization that uses Calendly to schedule as a team is at least one account admin who’s taking care of things behind the scenes. We tip our hat to account admins — they’re in charge of inviting users, creating time-saving event templates and routing logic, and keeping up with meeting analytics to help their team schedule even more efficiently.One piece of feedback that kept bubbling up was that while account admins love our Zoom integration, their teammates were sometimes forgetting to set up their Zoom account. This means some teammates weren’t able to automatically generate Zoom links and details for their scheduled meetings, and admins needed to keep reminding them to set up their Zoom integration — not ideal all around.We’re excited to share that admins on Teams and Enterprise plans can now set up Zoom on behalf of their organization so all teammates instantly have access to their favorite video conferencing tool!Admins can connect Zoom for their organization to: Check off an onboarding step: Make it easy to start scheduling when Zoom’s already connected.  Solve for missing integrations: Give existing users who haven’t connected Zoom instant access.  Set it and forget it: Add Zoom once and future teammates get the integration, no action neededWatch Jacob show you how to set up Zoom for your organization in under 2 minutes, or check out the help center article for step-by-step instructions.  Want more? We have more admin-managed integrations in the works. Stay tuned!

Product Update - March 2024

Hiya friends! Sam here feeling lucky that the days have been getting longer and warmer. ☀️ Let’s get up to speed on this month’s Calend-news. Admin Managed Event Type Editor - RedesignedAdmin managed event types just got a make-over! While the admin managed event type editor previously followed the legacy editor style, we’ve updated it to more closely follow the current editor style. Settings are now configured in the current editor format, with Event details, Hosts and invitees, Scheduling settings, Booking page options, and Communications. Loving the uniformity here now! The formatting is now consistent with the event type editors of non-admin managed event types.  💡 Note: Unlike the non-admin managed event type editor, the admin managed event type editor doesn’t have a booking page preview. Depending on your permissions settings, you may be able to view a booking page preview in the event type editor from an assigned user’s event types page.  Little bit of background since admin managed event types may be an unfamiliar topic— Admin managed events are reusable event types that organization admins can edit, *lock/sync, update, and assign to users to help standardize meetings. They also provide admins more control over your organization’s scheduling experience.For more information on admin managed event types, feel free to take a look here. *users on our Teams plan and higher are able to lock and sync fields in admin managed event types. To learn about the features in each plan, feel free to check out our pricing page! Routing with HubSpot LookupNow available for Teams and Enterprise users, routing with HubSpot lookup lets you instantly match and schedule HubSpot contacts with their assigned account owner—directly from your “Contacts Sales” forms.For routing with HubSpot lookup, select Use HubSpot lookup when configuring your routing logic. While every HubSpot instance is unique, we recommend users new to HubSpot routing use the configuration steps provided in this Help Center article when getting started. 💡 Did you know? You can add HubSpot lookup logic to a Calendly-native, HubSpot, Marketo, or Pardot routing form.   🎉 That’s it for this month! We post these fun run-downs every month to help you stay in the know with all things new to Calendly, so check back in a few weeks to keep up-to-date with all things Calend-news 📰  - Sam
