Let’s go back to our menu within our account screen here. And this is truly our primary page here on the home screen where you can add and modify existing events. I’ve got 2 occasions that I’m utilizing at the moment but let’s go and produce a new event from scratch. We gon na choose that new occasion type, which is gon na open up a new screen. We have actually got two options here, we can either create an individually conference or a group conference. Now a group meeting lets multiple guests meet you at a single time. This might be terrific for an instructor or if you are supplying a group webinar or something along those lines here. However most of the times, the majority of people are utilizing Calendly for one-on-one meeting.
So let’s say develop for one-on-one. On this screen, the first thing that we need to do is offer it an event name. Now remember, this is more than simply your referral. When they land on your Calendly page, this is what individuals are gon na be seen. So I’m just gon na call this one, Consulting with Scott, really basic here. I can identify, oop, Satisfying with Scott. Let’s keep that therein. Our 2nd step is to add a place and you can see we can tell our users upfront, is this an in person meeting, a call or is it gon na be a specific conferencing conference such as using Google Meet, Zoom, GoToMeeting or possibly something custom, something that’s not even listed here. In our example, I’m gon na choose telephone call in this case. And oftentimes, depending upon the choice that you choose, you may have some extra alternatives waiting for you. For instance, do I wan na choose if I will call my guest in this case, it’s gon na need the individual who’s booking that time to list their telephone number. I require to understand who I’m calling or I can select this choice, my invitee should call me. In this case, I can add my wanted telephone number here and the excellent thing with Calendly is that it’s not going to display this number up until they have actually scheduled the visit. If somebody is considering booking time with me, it’s not as if they’re gon na see my phone number or my dial in number right away, it’s just after they’ve booked 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 inquire to supply their contact number. I’m gon na state update, that’s gon na save that option here. Down below we can include a description which is something you don’t wan na overlook especially if you have multiple occasions that you’re gon na be using to your users. So I’m just gon na say, this is a conference with Scott for a consulting session, something like that, just something so they can distinguish what this event is about compared to possibly some of the other occasions that I have offered. And then just listed below the description, we have our event link. Now we already talked briefly about having your domain or your business name or perhaps your complete name to get them to your main Calendly page however this is something that you can share in addition, a separate URL. In this case again, you wan na try make it as particular as possible. Possibly I’m gon na state, fulfilling Scott, something like that, something that’s so simple for me to identify but also if I just copy and paste this link, they know what they’re getting.
