The rapid rise in remote work has come with a new set of workplace challenges. Many companies are recognizing this growing trend and have built tools geared towards solving the specific problems remote teams face. One such tool that has been widely adopted by remote employees and office employees alike is Calendly, a platform that streamlines the scheduling process. 

However, sometimes sending an email with your Calendly Scheduler attached can feel a bit impersonal- especially if you’re trying to remotely engage sales
prospects. At Kommute we recognized this challenge, so that’s why we integrated with Calendly. We believe that combining the personal, persuasive power of video with the convenience of online scheduling will help you schedule more meetings when compared to sending an email that includes your Calendly link. 

Even when scheduling a meeting isn’t the challenge, some meetings could benefit from an introductory message to better prepare participants. By attaching your Calendly scheduler to a short video message, you can introduce key discussion points or meeting agendas items beforehand to make the actual meeting more productive. 

Finally, our Calendly integration can also help you make some meetings completely optional, saving you time and keeping your calendar clear. For example, if someone is asking you to meet because they have a question, you can record a video message with your answer but still provide the option to schedule a meeting for further clarification. 

New, Video-Enabled Use Cases 

The ability to attach your scheduling widget to a video message creates interesting, new use cases for Calendly that make everyone more productive:

  • Account managers can schedule onboarding meetings by sending a friendly introductory video message with the ability to book time using Calendly.
  • Salespeople can answer a prospect’s question by sending a recording or their webcam or screen while simultaneously asking to schedule a follow-up meeting via Calendly. 
  • Customer support reps can send a quick video message to answer a support question with a screen recording, complete with the option to schedule through Calendly if needed.
  • Recruiters can send introductory video messages or interview invitations to job candidates requesting they schedule time to chat via a Calendly widget.
  • HR leaders can onboard new hires using video messages that include a message from the employee’s manager, links to useful information, and a request to schedule an onboarding discussion through Calendly.
  • Everyone can introduce key discussion points or meeting agendas items beforehand by attaching their Calendly scheduler to a short video message, making the actual meeting more productive.

While Calendly streamlines the scheduling process, Kommute helps make the scheduling process feel more personal. Whether you’re engaging prospects, supporting customers, or recruiting talent, our Calendly integration helps you schedule more meetings with better-prepared guests.
