As an account owner or admin on the Enterprise plan, you can set up Single Sign-On (SSO) to create a simple and secure way to control access to Calendly for your organization. Benefits of SSO include:
Increased security and access control
Members use a single set of credentials to access multiple applications
Quick and simple sign-on
Reduced need to remember passwords
Eliminates weak password use
Calendly uses SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) to enable SSO and transfer members' identity from an identity provider (IdP) to Calendly.
We support these identity providers
Identity providers create and maintain identity information that's used for SSO. Calendly supports:
Microsoft Azure or
an enterprise IdP using SAML 2.0
If you want to use multi-factor authentication, you can configure it with your IdP.
To set up SSO you'll need:
your Entity ID (provided by your identity provider)
your identity provider's SAML HTTP Request URL (which is used to verify SSO)
the X.509 certificate for SAML authentication (which allows Calendly to communicate with your IdP)
If you want to enable SAML SSO and your company has multiple Calendly accounts, you can configure each Calendly account separately to work with your IdP.
If you have guest accounts
We don’t recommend using SAML at this time, otherwise your guests can’t log in using their email address and password.
What to expect after you enable SSO
Current and future members will automatically use SSO to log into Calendly. To inform your members that SSO is enabled, we recommend that you send an email such as the following:
Subject: [ Action Required ] Log back into Calendly
This is to let you know that [ Your Organization Name ] is changing to the way we access Calendly. Going forward you’ll be able to log into Calendly using your [ IdP ] credentials.
We made this change so you can access Calendly and other applications using the same username and password (this way you don’t have to remember multiple passwords). If you're unable to log in using your [IdP] username and password, please let your network administrator know.
[ Signature ]
Logging in with SSO
Once SAML SSO is enabled, members who are logged into Calendly’s web or mobile apps are logged out and will need to use SAML SSO to log back in.
Any members you add after SAML SSO is enabled can log in using your organization’s SSO credentials after they accept your invitation to join.

Removing members once SAML SSO is enabled
To remove someone from your organization, remove them from your IdP and Calendly.
