Calendly Assist - Conversational Scheduling (via chat) for one-offs

Calendly Assist functionality is used to create one-off meetings using natural language processing (NLP). One-off meetings offer a quick and flexible way to create a one-time meeting that doesn't match your regular schedule. 

Before you begin:

Calndly Assist functionality is powered by OpenAI and through contract agreement, OpenAI does not train on customer data. The input data submitted through Calendly Assist functionality is used solely to generate a response from the AI model and provide that response back to the user. The input data submitted is not used for model training, and content and usage data will be used according to Calendly's Privacy Policy and Beta Terms of Use.

Note

Calendly Assist functionality is currently in Beta and is continually evolving. As a result, there may be instances where the requested meeting setup may not entirely match the prompts given. In the event that this occurs, we have ensured that manual edits can be made when needed.

How to get started

  1. Select the Schedule with AI Beta flag from your Calendly homepage.

  2. Enter details about the type of meeting you're looking to schedule within the conversational scheduling window.
    • AI recommends meeting details available to use or you can add your own.
    • Recommended inputs when adding your own meeting details include:
      • Meeting type (i.e. coffee chat, product demo, review meeting)
      • Meeting date (i.e. this Friday, November 27th, next Thursday)
      • Meeting duration (i.e. 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours)
      • Meeting location (i.e. Zoom, in person, conference room B)

  3. Review the meeting details and availability options generated by the AI bot within the calendar view.
    • Adjust your event name, duration and location under Meeting details.
