SavvyCal vs Acuity?
Since getting acquired by Squarespace, Acuity is known for being error-prone, support can be difficult to get a hold of, and they haven’t shipped new features in quite some time. SavvyCal is the Acuity Scheduling alternative that makes scheduling collaborative instead of a nuisance.
“SavvyCal makes scheduling calls and meetings so easy for us. I wish we had this years ago.”
“I use SavvyCal so my customers can easily compare my availability to their own. Making their lives a little easier is a treat I’m happy to pay for.”
“My favorite is the personalized links. SavvyCal links feel more natural and save everyone time.”
Acuity was a great start. SavvyCal picks up where it left off.
It’s been almost two years since Squarespace acquired Acuity. Not much has changed since then, but that’s also part of the problem. They’re slow to roll out improvements (if at all), it’s very difficult to get a hold of support, and they’ve been known to be error-prone.
Who wants to use a product that doesn’t innovate and isn’t reliable? Even though SavvyCal wasn’t even around when Acuity was acquired, we’re already running laps around them. New features are released weekly, you can get support directly from the founder, and it goes above and beyond where Acuity left off.

With Acuity, you have to send the same ol’ link to everyone.
Instantly find a time that works for everyone.
With SavvyCal, recipients can overlay their calendar on top of yours to easily find mutual availability.
With Acuity, the burden is on the recipient to switch back and forth to find a good time.
Adjusting availability should save time, not waste time.
With SavvyCal, you can quickly make changes across multiple meeting types at the same time.
With Acuity, availability has to be manually changed for each and every link.
Set preferred times you’d like to meet.
With SavvyCal, you can optimize your schedule by presenting availability windows in a particular order.
With Acuity, recipients are limited to just one availability window.

With Acuity, new links have to be created in order to adjust availability, which completely negates the purpose of creating preset links in the first place.
Select which calendar to use for storage on a per-link basis.
With SavvyCal, you can check for conflicts across multiple calendars and set which calendar you want to store each meeting in.
With Acuity, every meeting is stored on the same calendar — don’t they teach you not to mix business with pleasure?
Offer multiple duration lengths for each link.
With SavvyCal, recipients can book as little or as much time as they need.
With Acuity, you have to create a separate link for every duration variant you want to offer.
