    Phone call

    1. Choose I will call my invitee or My invitee should call me.

    2. Select Update.

    Tip: To reduce no-show rates, opt for I will call my invitee. This option places less responsibility on the invitee to call. Calendly will automatically add a phone number field to the booking page for your invitee to fill out.
