How to share Calendly link with users
When the time comes to schedule an appointment or book a call you could share Calendly link with your users. It is much easier than asking more questions (i.e. when is the best time for your interlocutor to book a call, etc). Just select Calendly icon in your Inbox tab.
If you have already linked your Calendly account, you'll see a list with all your appointments. You can select any of them and it will be sent to the user with a suggestion to select any time slot for the appointment.
There is also a way to use the integration without linking your own account. You could just paste a link to the appointment and Dashly will show information about it.
When the user clicks the button Calendly widget will appear in Dashly's chat widget. The user could select any available date and time among suggested time slots.
❗It's important: If this user's name and email are unknown to Dashly (not recorded to the user's card), they will appear right after they are filled in Calendly form by this user. If the user's data is already there, we will not renew it.
Once the user successfully submitted the form, you'll see a message in the Inbox tab which will reflect the time and date of the appointment. All this information will appear in Calendly as well.
