Why choose

Calendly vs SavvyCal?

SavvyCal is the Calendly alternative that makes scheduling collaborative instead of a nuisance. Finally, a meeting scheduling tool both the sender and the recipient will love.

Calendly was a pioneer.
We’re picking up the baton.

Calendly is a great company with a truly pioneering product. Modern scheduling tools like SavvyCal wouldn’t be what they are today without them.

That said, you’re here for a reason. And the fact of the matter is that Calendly is a generic tool meant to appeal to a vast number of audiences, needs, and industries.

If you’re okay with sending out a generic link that forces the recipient to jump through a few hoops to meet with you, SavvyCal probably won’t be a good fit for you. But if you care about providing an enjoyable experience for anyone booking a meeting with you, you’re in the right place.

“SavvyCal makes me feel better about finding time to meet with clients, partners, and colleagues. It goes beyond similar tools by removing the awkwardness of imposing your schedule upon others.”

Make personalization a priority

With SavvyCal, you can create personalized links in seconds to make a great impression while also reducing the steps needed to schedule a time.

With Calendly, the burden is on the recipient to switch back and forth to find a good time.

Optimize for preferred times

With SavvyCal, you can optimize your schedule by presenting availability windows in a particular order.

With Calendly, recipients are limited to just one availability window.

Protect against meeting overload

With SavvyCal, you can limit how many meetings can be booked per day, week, or month.

With Calendly, you might wake up to 10 back to back meetings on a Monday.

Customize availability on the fly

With SavvyCal, you can preview and manually allow or block off time before sending.

With Calendly, “ad hoc meetings” have to be created in order to adjust availability, which completely negates the purpose of creating preset links in the first place.

With SavvyCal, you can check for conflicts across multiple calendars and set which calendar you want to store each meeting in.

With Calendly, every meeting is stored on the same calendar — don’t they teach you not to mix business with pleasure?

Multiple duration lengths for each link

With SavvyCal, recipients can book as little or as much time as they need.

With Calendly, you have to create a separate link for every duration variant you want to offer.

“Officially cancelled my Calendly and upgraded my SavvyCal. Allowing my invitees to overlay their own calendar to pick a good time is game changing!”
