I have actually got two occasions presently that people can pick from and when they click on one of those occasions, they are likewise gon na see my branding here. We gon na choose that brand-new occasion type, which is gon na open up a new screen.

This is what individuals are gon na be seen when they arrive on your Calendly page. So I’m just gon na call this one, Meeting with Scott, truly simple here. I can identify, oop, Meeting with Scott. Let’s keep that therein. Our second action is to add an area and you can see we can inform our users upfront, is this a face to face meeting, a phone call or is it gon na be a specific conferencing meeting such as using Google Meet, Zoom, GoToMeeting or perhaps something customized, something that’s not even listed here. In our example, I’m gon na select call in this case. And in a lot of cases, depending upon the choice that you select, you might have some additional choices waiting for you. Do I wan na choose if I will call my invitee in this case, it’s gon na require the person who’s scheduling that time to note their phone number. I need to understand who I’m calling or I can pick this option, my invitee must call me. In this case, I can include my wanted contact number here and the excellent thing with Calendly is that it’s not going to show this number till they have actually reserved the appointment. So if someone is thinking about scheduling 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’ve booked the time will this number be revealed. But in this case, I’m gon na state, I will call my invitees ’cause I’m gon na inquire to provide their phone number. I’m gon na state upgrade, that’s gon na conserve that alternative here.
