Need a Appointment booking platform/Calendly

Hello all!

New bubbler here and learning a ton as I go. I have gotten a bit stuck with the development of my web app.

I need a calendar view on one of my pages where users can book appointments through my pre set time slot availabilities and then have a link sent emailed to them with the video call invite after they have booked.

I researched and thought Calendly would be the best option for this. Google Calendar doesn’t let me use the appointment slot feature because I am not an educational or business account. However, I am having a hard time getting the Calendly plug in to show on my app.

Do I need to gt a HTML code from Calendlys platform and then put it in an HTML visual element on my app? I do not see an option to add that plug in directly on my designer tab. So far I have downloaded the plug in and entered my key.

Any help with this would be great, but if you have suggestions on building a custom calendar or a different plug in that would be better for my needs, I’d be happy to hear those options as well!

Thank you

Hey @KylePuma

I had the same dilemma (choosing between Calendly and a custom built calendar) when developing an app a few months ago. It was exactly the same use case:

  1. Professionals define time slots
  2. Users book slots within those time slots
  3. When booking is confirmed, they receive a link to a video-conference room

I personally chose to go with the custom-built calendar as it’s a lot more flexible, and leaves the option to add features as you scale. This may help you get started: [Tips] Let Users setup their daily availabilities

Hope that helps

Yes. Custom build as much as you can. Clients will always have requests and doing it yourself gives control. Good tip for the OP.

Thank you so much for the help @ambroisedlg

This definitely sounds like the route to go. As a new bubbler with limited experience, it may take a good amount of time to build it out myself but the benefits should outweigh that.

Thank you @josh10 I am going to do my best to build this out myself.
