To note for multi-user Calendly organizations:

Users must individually connect their Google Meet account
Users must connect their Google Calendar before they can schedule personal or team meetings. Admins cannot connect a Google Meet account on users' behalf. If you're a Calendly admin, feel free to share How to schedule a meeting with video conferencing with your users.

Dial-in numbers

By default, Google Meet adds a U.S. dial-in number and a web conferencing link to calendar invitations.

To use international numbers, you must subscribe to Google's G-Suite Enterprise or G Suite Enterprise for Education. If you select multiple countries, Google adds a link in the invitee notification that displays dial-in options for other countries.
