"Karen blew my mind! I was hoping to find something like this, but was only looking in a traditional scheduling application. The support team is friendly, and the software is a breeze to use."

We’ve All Suffered at getting Scheduling Right. Have You?

Each time you get stuck working with a complicated scheduling software, there’s always that fear of how you could make it easier.

  • Will there be a bot that could do all the scheduling heavy-lifting on its own?
  • Can I schedule recurring, and group events easily?
  • Does it integrate with Slack, Zapier, Zoom, and Wordpress to name a few?
  • Can I get analytics of my meetings on a weekly / monthly basis to measure my teams’ and my productivity?
  • Will the support respond and go beyond the call of duty to resolve issues?

If your scheduling solution got you answering NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, maybe it’s time to switch to Karen.

What Calendly customers say
How Customer Support works at Karen
Calendly is restrictive in analytics; for instance, I can't easily see how many people clicked to schedule an event, but didn't follow through.
We have detailed email analytics sent in through mails so that you can optimise the time spends per vertical.
The ability to figure how exactly where and how to adjust all of the setup preferences is a little quirky. Some of the settings are "hidden" as sub-sections under other preference pages.
There is just one settings tab, and does it all the magic.
“The free account allows you to only predefine one time slot, e.g. 30 minute ”
Free account is free as in free pizza, create as many event types as you wish.
The initial set up can be a little confusing.
Our guided tour makes it a cake walk. Well that's what our customers told us.
Their web interface is a little clunky.
We have a bot, incase you don't want to click all the buttons.
Also I would like to see more integration options.
Major integrations like Slack and Wordpress lacking in Calendly is covered here.
They came out with an app recently. Sadly, its complete garbage.
Our new app is WIP, it will be much better.

They introduced a fee to pay, I always have stuck to the free version which has been great for me. I wish you were able to book in multiple time durations and not have it split up, also I wish that you could integrate it with more platforms such as Wordpress.
Verified review oncapterra1
One thing I dislike is that it does create the event as if I created it,so the user can not cancel it. Sometimes the other person cancels the event but the event still appears us available in my calendar.

" I had to configure everything again when I moved from 1 company to another - which is only an inconvenience not an issue. "
Verified review oncapterra1
"I do not like that the same customers can use old links. I have submitted numerous request to create an expiring link feature but that is a no go with them. If another software with similar design is out there that can do this we would probably switch
Verified review oncapterra1
"The free version limits you to one calendar connection.I can't use my outlook calendar and my google calendar so users have to be careful that their main calendar is up-to-date with any other calendar they are using.
Verified review oncapterra1
This software can be difficult to set up as individual and teams work separately and you have to create the events on each one separately.
