"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."

Most popular feedback for Sched

My first experience with Sched was as a speaker on a conference event being organized by our foreign collaborators. As my first foreign speaking engagement, I was naturally extremely nervous, but Sched made collaborating with the organizers so easy and that I felt very much at ease and ended up delivering an exceptional session. After that experience, I recommended trying Sched for our own subsequent conference events.

Most popular feedback for Calendly

I was pleasantly surprised by Calendlys performance. My job has multiple functions, one of which is scheduling for my team and our attorneys. This is often a tedious and daunting task, however Calendly has streamlined the process. There are drawbacks such as the lack of customer service accessibility and some inconveniences in the way the software is set up. When analyzing both the pros and cons, it's evident that the pros drastically outweigh the cons.

Sched reviews

Communication is the main problem that Sched solves. It's an at-a-glance snapshot of an entire evening that easily drills down into specifics. It invites interaction, so that's another communication problem solved/helped. I couldn't be more thrilled to have Sched working on my event's behalf. Thank you!

We used to publish our own website with conference info; it had the basic info, but it was hard to keep the pieces consistent. Now we link to the Sched site from our event page and attendees find everything there. Speakers can post their pix and handouts and complete/update their profiles and send e-mail blasts to all who signed up for their workshop. We got good reporting and from it (and Google Analytics) see a high engagement rate (not just page views; over half set up accounts and created a personal schedule). This is all from their lowest service level/tier; higher levels integrate more with registration/payment etc., but we already have an online store and used it for front-end registration.

- James C. Technical Evangelist

It wasn't too difficult to get everything set up, but we needed a human to help us select the right package to purchase. It was way too difficult reaching someone and we were actually told that no one could assist us for at least another week because that department was going to a conference.

Calendly reviews

I love the integration with google calendar and the reminders and automation. In fact, the workflows are so well done, it's saved me so much time!!

- Ze W. Mindset Coach

Calendly served its purpose well. A few years ago, I started using it again. However, the product didn't actually change during that time. The market was flooded with new items that performed the same functions, but at a lower cost and with superior features. It's a bit of a one-trick ponies in that regard.

- Sarah J. System Engineer

Not good, it was a terrible experience and I have been in contact with many others who have had the same or similar experiences.

Pros & cons

Sched

Pros
Love the easiness of selecting which sessions I wanted to attend
It then stored it and made it super easy for me to know exactly where to go
My district uses Sched to schedule our entire district professional training
This is fabulous I love that it emails me my schedule and I can access it all day as I attend trainings
I also love the ability to email attendees from the platform and how they also get a daily reminder
It is also wonderful how we can personalize the system with our own branding and images
This was a perfect option for our needs this year, and now that we know more about how it can be used, it will be used more often for our future conference needs."
Cons
We have received many complaints within 24 hours of launching the service
The lack of Spanish interface, because we are in Peru
It is difficult to find your meeting sometimes
There are so many meetings scheduled
Small landing/home page with limited customization."

Ease of booking appointments on a shared calendar is super easy to manage
Great software without hassles
It has a beautiful and light design, it is fast and I love the (free) possibility of connection with zoom
Its have been a good experience
I usually recommend it to my clients when they want to automate their appointment settings without paying for any other software or tool
My overall experience has been great
I have used other software similar but this is by far the best and very efficnet."
Cons
The biggest inconvenience was setting up my work hours after the initial setup
The flow for finding what you need feels disjointed and you can get lost when trying to find the setting you need
The app tends to crash occasionally which can be a pain
The software is Very basic, should consider upgrading its functionality
This makes it confusing for both myself and the person trying to schedule the meeting
It is not built for Outlook 2019, so have been having problems with the desktop plugin."
