    Thank you for your comments and engagement on this post! We know that you need a solution for recurring events, and we are currently researching what that solution could look like in a way that meets the majority of your expectations. In order to do this, it’s important that we understand who you are and what recurring events mean to you. Could you please fill out this survey to give us some more insight? For those who agree to it, we may also reach out to some of you individually to learn more in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check back here for updates as they become available.

    Yes! Right now I periodically go in to add more blackout dates and it's annoying and has caused some scheduling conflicts.

    Hi all -

    Thanks for sharing your specific use cases, as it helps us understand more as we look into solutions. While I don't have a target date for when we will support recurring events, it's a popular request that is on our radar. Will gladly share your feedback with the Product team.

    Hi!  I too would really appreciate the recurring event option.  I have clients who schedule their recurring sessions up front.  These are usually for 6 months or 24 weekly sessions.  It really is poor customer service on my end to ask them to schedule 24 sessions in order to secure the same day/time for their sessions.  I just enrolled for Calendly and am disappointed to  find that it doesn't have this feature.  Thanks for sharing the feedback with your Product Team.

    Thanks Zach and everyone else for submitting this request.  I love Calendly's user interface, and the absence of recurring events is a challenge for my business as well.  Creating a way for clients to schedule multiple sessions within a program would be optimal, and I'd also appreciate a way to have the system autotrack 1/6, 2/6, 3/6, etc. . . so both my client and myself as a practitioner knows which session number they're on within their program package.  
    If anyone has found a workaround for any of this, please share. . .

    Thanks.

    This will be huge for me as I get new coaching clients; recurring appointments seems logical and look forward to seeing it added soon. :)

    This issue comes up for all types of coaches who meet on a regular basis with their clients. I would LOVE the ability to easily set up recurring appointments, as I can do in Google Calendar.

    one more vote from me too. I have to stay on another platform until this is addressed, unfortunately.

    Please advise if recurring is on the road map? If not we will have to move on. Seems like that would be 101 for a calender app. 

    Thanks

    Crucial to have recurring events during deployment phase.

    One more vote for recurring events.  I use them a LOT in my coaching/ consulting and I have had a LOT of negative feedback about my process being too difficult for my clients. Any idea on when this may show up on the product roadmap?  If not, that's ok too, however just trying to set my expectations appropriately :)

    The ability to schedule recurring events and bundle the payment into a package is crucial! So surprised this isn't doable... or has this maybe addressed and I can't find it yet? Help, Calendly!

    I am a private music teacher and just started using Calendly...so far it has been a very powerful, yet simple to use/ user-friendly tool for my students. Unfortunately, the only feature that is missing is the ability to SCHEDULE RECURRING EVENTS (weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly), in my case music lessons. I got upset when I found out that this feature is completely missing from this app. I wish that the production team that handles Calendly's set-up will consider this VERY IMPORTANT feature for private teachers/instructors like me and will hopefully take the appropriate action in the very near future. If not, sadly I will consider switching to another scheduling software.

    Any updates on this please? 

    I'm a Pilates teacher and use Calendly for clients to book 1-2-1 sessions in my studio.

    I also run group Pilates classes where up to 12 clients book a block of up to 40 classes at the same time day spread over the year. It would be amazing if I could use Calendly for this also as it has the best UI (back and front) that I've come across in this sort of application.

    Many thanks

    Simon

    Hack; client/customer schedules first appointment, because they don't have a relationship with you most likely.

    On first visit you qualify them to determine if you want them back and you use your own calendar 'repeat' option to schedule as many follow ups as required.

    Keep the control in your hands to minimize spamming by unqualified clients/patients that would block good customers from scheduling themselves.

    Ditto, coaching CEO's and need to schedule recurring sessions so that they are locked in their calendars vs attempting to 'find' time each month.

    It's been a year +, Is there an update on this feature?

    Your platform otherwise is great, elegant, simple and beautifully designed, however, without a recurring option, it's not THE solution that works long term.

     

    Thanks

    This would be great for my business and others like me. Would love to see the functionality to schedule recurring events at the same time released as soon as possible. Calendly is really great, please can you make it a little bit greater. :-)

    Would love this feature. A real game changer. I know a lot of fellow Pilates and similar teachers who would really value this to schedule blocks of courses. Calendly is amazing already, adding this would make even more so.
