You can host the calendar in a page or generate a scheduling link like this one. https://calendly.com/investglassmedia
This is an external site, so you might prefer to add an iframe into your website.
An iframe is a great option because you can keep your branding on the site and offer a unique experience to visitors. Inside InvestGlass client portal, you can also add the iframe with scheduling links added to your profile page. The calendly url can be your team url or your own. The pop up widget will help to set the meeting.
Is it difficult to setup your Calendly account?
Each team members account settings are centralized into a admin panel where you can setup event type fort your whole team. You will setup the Calendly url, and round robin.
Round robin is very useful when you have a team in different time zones. Round robin will check multiple calendars and facilitate one on one event on a particular calendar. Team events are now easy.
The event type can be invitee, organizer or both. Each event type should have a comprehensive description. The setup can be sometimes trick to automatically create the right meeting room. You can create unlimited event types.
Invitees will see the event when they receive an invitation and click on it to accept their spot. The employee is still able to edit the other events if needed.
Calendly page will also include a picture of your staff. Everything can be setup inside Calendly dashboard.
