Why Choose
SavvyCal vs Calendly?

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.

Calendar overlay

Adjusting availability should save time, not waste time.

With Calendly, availability has to be manually changed for each and every link.

Availability presets

Set preferred times you’d like to meet.

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.

Show more times

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

Buffers and Limits

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.

Link editing

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

Calendar routing

Offer 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.

Variable duration
