Descripcion

Schedule Meetings in under 30 seconds without searching through your calendar and all the back-and-forth emails.

Check the website – https://wpcal.io/

HOW IT WORKS:

  1. Set your availability (One-time setup)
    Let us know your availability by either setting it up yourself or by connecting your calendars.
  2. Send your clients a link to your booking page
    To schedule a meeting with someone, share the link to your personalized booking page via email.
  3. They choose a convenient slot
    Your clients can choose an available slot by selecting a preferred date and time.
  4. Voila! Your meeting is scheduled!
    Your meeting is scheduled in just a few clicks. No checking calendars or sending emails back and forth.

Never ask “what time works for you?” again.
Your clients can quickly view your real-time availability and self-book their own appointments—reschedule with a click, and eliminate all back-and-forth emailing.

WHAT YOU CAN USE IT FOR?

FAQ

Can my invitees book an event with me from their mobile devices?

Yes, of course. Please check out the mobile mockup in the screenshots section.

How can I avoid last-minute booking of events?

You can set a Minimum Scheduling Notice when creating an event type. For eg. if you set the notice as 24 hours, invitees will only be able to book slots that are 24 hours or more into the future. You can also avoid new bookings after, say, 11pm of yesterday/2 days ago.

How quickly can I expect replies to my support requests?

I have been using WPCal.io to schedule meetings, consultations, and trainings for my business for approximately 60 days now. It makes it so, so easy to connect your Google Calendar and find a common available time with your clients, schedule a meeting, and connect it to Google Meet for a video call (which as been super-helpful during the COVID-19 pandemic!). There was a glitch at first, a very unique issue that required some one-to-one troubleshooting. The plugin developer connected with me via video, performed some tests, and within a day he let me know that an update was available. I could not be more happy with the support, the plugin, and the roadmap for future developments. I highly recommend this plugin for all of your scheduling needs.
