Calendly Product Update – June 2024

AUTHOR: Jeff Hardison Head of Product Marketing

Add Calendly to Your LinkedIn Profile

Have you noticed hundreds of LinkedIn users adding “Book a Meeting With Me” Calendly links and buttons to their LinkedIn profiles? We believe it's important for your scheduling tool to integrate with your other favorite tools, so I had to try it out:

Some of my friends have LinkedIn Premium Business subscriptions, so they're able to take it next-level with an eye-catching Calendly button:

Imagine how many more meetings you could book with customers and recruits visiting your LinkedIn profile. Give it a shot, and let me know how it works for you.

If you want some help, I've created a short instructional video:

And, for those of you who send heaps of LinkedIn messages, remember, we make it easy to access all of your Calendly Event Types — 30-minute phone call, 45-minute video call, etc. — via the official LinkedIn Messenger + Calendly integration.

In order to add your Calendly to LinkedIn Messenger, you'll need our browser extension. Once you download the extension, read our post on integrating Calendly with LinkedIn Messenger to get some helpful tips.

Tip of the Day: Automate Pre- and Post-Meeting Emails and Texts

Albert Z. asks, “Anyone [had] someone book a call, but then doesn't show up?” Pretty much my entire life before I discovered Calendly Workflows (available on all paid subscription plans).

Be like marketing consultant Henrito Palomo, and set up a Workflow to send reminders 24 hours in advance, an hour in advance, 10 minutes before — you get the idea. You can also set up Workflows post-meeting for thank-you notes and follow-ups with helpful links (a customer case study is my favorite), saving you time and improving the meeting experience for all attendees.

Screenshot of a threaded social media conversation between Albert Z and henrito. They are discussing how arranged meetings are poorly attended and how Calendly reminder workflows are used to make this better.

Check out these two new Workflows blog posts to learn more: Calendly Workflows: Automate communications before and after every meeting and How to reduce no-shows with Calendly meeting reminders.

If you're an administrator — or know one! — of a Calendly account, we've recently made it easier to standardize how your team uses these reminders and follow-up notifications with what we call Managed Workflows. Now, you can ensure all of your salespeople send a reminder one hour in advance of a demo, or recruiters always send a thank-you note after a screening call.
