In our example, I’m gon na choose call in this case. And in many cases, depending upon the option that you pick, you might have some extra alternatives waiting for you. Do I wan na pick if I will call my invitee in this case, it’s gon na need the person who’s scheduling that time to note their phone number. I need to know who I’m calling or I can pick this option, my guest must call me. In this case, I can include my desired phone number here and the terrific thing with Calendly is that it’s not going to show this number up until they have booked the visit. So if someone is considering reserving time with me, it’s not as if they’re gon na see my contact number or my dial in number right now, it’s only after they have actually reserved the time will this number be revealed. However in this case, I’m gon na state, I will call my guests ’cause I’m gon na ask to provide their phone number. I’m gon na state update, that’s gon na save that option here.
