    Hello all,


    Thanks for all the great feedback about this very popular request. While I don’t have a target date on when we will support proxy booking for your invitees, I can say that we are actively investigating this problem.

    Best,
    Hannah at Calendly

    Hi,

    Sometimes I need to schedule an event outside of my availability or settings, so I have to temporarily change my settings in order to do that, and then change them back again. It would be helpful if I could manually enter an event in my calendar as the owner of the calendar so that I could bypass my settings in order to schedule an event outside of the availability I have set for clients. I know it's possible to link my Google calendar so that any events on my Google calendar will block time off on my Calendly availability, but then this doesn't prevent my maximum number of events from being scheduled in a day. This is where I run into trouble!

    Thanks.

    I would also like to be able to manually override the settings to accommodate a special scheduling need.  This should only be available with the administrator's login.  E.g. I set a buffer between meeting times to allow travel time, but if the meetings are in the same location, I would like to be able to do them back to back.

    I would also like as an administrator on my own calendar to be able to schedule an event outside of my availability. Sometimes I make adjustments for certain people, but it's such a pain to have to change my availability on my calendly just to add their appointment. I specifically schedule through calendly and not just on my outlook calendar so I can auto-send the confirmation emails, reminders, etc.

    For us, we would see this feature under the Dashboard, a new "Schedule Event" button and we could fill out a form to set the date/time and other information.

    Also, under the Dashboard, details of an Event, we would like to see a button "Add Invitee" under "Edit Invitee Limit" so that we can quickly add an extra invitee at the select time.

    I would also love to see something like this.  I work with students and often schedule appointments at odd hours but don't want them open all the time.  It would be nice if I could quickly add them manually outside of my open hours.  Right now I have to add the time I want for them and then go in and quickly book on their behalf which is a hassle.

    Totally agree ...we need this. Please Calendly - can you add a 'Schedule New Event' to allow us to manually add a new event and override days and time?

    I agree, from your dash board you should be able to simply block out time slots easily.

    This is incredibly basic functionality, and should have been a part of Calendly at launch. It's pretty disappointing that they've been dragging their feet on a simple need for over a year.

    Any update on this? Seems like this should be the first thing an online scheduler would focus on....A calendar.

    Yes! I have to add meeting manually sometimes and it’s duch a pain to have to go in add that time slot and then add the event. As the admin we should be able to have our own button to override the unavalible times and add events

    Yes, I set so many, if not most of my appointments over the phone. I need to have the availability to manually add one event. Also, need it to be able to override anything else I have going on at that time. Unless I don't know the trick, it is difficult if I am not around my computer, to add a clients name, phone number, email without clicking a few buttons to get there.

    +1... it would be very handy to manually schedule items in blocked zones occasionally.

    I can't believe this feature doesn't exist.

    I have 'ideal hours' that I offer others... but regularly need to book clients myself and stretch to accommodate them at times that I don't want to openly promote.

    It's a total pain to have to work around this limitation!

    all of this would be helpful.  When I try you're work around it appears the event is scheduled for me which mean automated emails won't go to the client.

    Adding to this: I went in through the link I offer applicants, with their email and phone number in hand, and created the event for my calendar and theirs. It worked perfectly.  TBH a button that took me to that screen is all that'd be needed for this feature to work, but the workaround of going to my calendly/andrea-schwartz link is simple enough and easy to remember.
