    Checking in on any updates for this feature.  I echo the sentiments of those above that this will make or break whether I'm able to continue using Calendly.  My preference would be the ability to blacklist certain emails vs. the one-time codes, so I know I have the power to eliminate abusers.

    Hey,

    i've seen you can integrate calendly into infusionsoft. Is it possible to block users from making new appointments via a tag-system once they are blocked(Tagged via infusionsoft).

    I tought about a workflow like this: Setting the Appointment -> checking via Infusionsoft if "Block"-Tag is set -> delete Appointment(and sent email to customer) if Tag is already applied.

    This feature is important to me as well as the others here. I am having people overuse links, and also share the links with others who should not get it. Vote yes to implement!

    Hi all,

    This is similar to what I am looking for in a feature, but I do not want to block people from rescheduling in the future.

     I manage a brewery and in my past careers I've used calendly. I wanted to start using it now to help easily schedule food trucks and vendors. However, I want to limit them to how much an individual can book within a month time period. Ideally there would be a way to recognize the scheduler's email or other contact information. It is not efficient to keep changing the event URL or making it private. 

    Looking forward to this feature!

    I have to make my calendar public to those who want to meet with me, but there are some people that have scheduled for me and never answer my call.  It would be nice to be able to block people somehow.

    Yes, please make it possible to give people a one-time link! And it would be great to be able to block people. I do recruiting and often times, people who are unqualified continue to try to book with me and I find myself policing my schedule and canceling. It's a poor use of my time and I wonder how many potential recruits are missing the opportunity to schedule with me in the time that it takes for me to cancel the unqualified person's meeting.

    A one-time link seems like the most eloquent solution. Where is this feature request on the product roadmap?

    This feature request is now 2 years old - any hot-fix solution?

    I was hoping for an update on this issue. 

    I generally love Calendly but as my business grows I find that it doesn't do everything I need. I have a course that is available for purchase and I include the opportunity to schedule 4 live sessions. I'd like to be able to limit booking options. Is it possible this might be a new feature soon? 

    Thank you, 

    Annemarie

    We need the functionality to block because we use Calendly to book interviews. Once a candidate has been rejected, we don't want him/her to schedule any other interview.

    I hope this can be available soon!

    Elizabet, I achieve this by creating a private event type for each candidate with a url unique to each of them. Once I don’t want them to book another event, I just remove their event type.

    Thank you Chip! Unfortunately, due to the large number of candidates we have, we cannot create a new event type for each of them... Thanks for your comment anyways!

    I am new to Calendly, I have added it to my email signature (as you suggested) Today I revived an awful 60-minute booking from some jerk using very foul language, fake email, and fake phone #.

     

    It seems that people like this can book up my calendar whenever they want. It would be nice to see 2 features:

    1) Like my gmail: I can block email addresses (which doesn't help when they give me fake email addresses

    2) Can you use a program that verifies their email address before the appointment is accepted?

    3) If not, can we make it more secure by the person booking the appointment get a confirmation email to their address they used that they have to confirm? This is used in most other programs. If they used a fake email address they will not receive the confirmation email and their appointment request would end there. This is also important IF someone books a fake appointment then uses another person email address and that real person receives a bunch of emails from me they didn't expect or want. This is a security issue that should be fixed.

    I just reviewed two years of complaints regarding problems with fake scheduling.    Where do I look to find the solution Calendly has implemented?

    Bill, there hasn't been one implemented. That is the issue here.

    I am using Calendly for a team of 8 people. The whole company might start using it, if just this feature would be available!

    Hannah,

    Glad that this feature has been rolled out and that Calendly is updating the product!  I think it will probably help some people and not others, depending on the task.

    For me, it will fulfill the purpose of giving only one-time access, but will add extra work if I use it.  For example, I often email multiple people a template email with the one calendly link and they all use it to book an event - I will not be able to do that with the individualized links but will instead have to send individual emails, which is burdensome.  So the ideal fix in my mind would be a setting within the event type that turns on or off the generation of one-time use event urls that are routed behind that common url that is provided to everyone.  

    Another solution could be to allow template emails within calendly linked with email provider, able to send to many recipients but automatically include unique links with expiration dates.

    No idea if either of those are possible but that would be my preference, and hope that makes sense.

    Thanks though for working on solutions to this!

    I just reviewed the new release to the Chrome Extension allowing a One time Use link to be created...BRILLIANT!!! This works perfectly for me in my use case and takes care of the problem completely. Good Job Calendly!!

    The addition of a "favorites" star also VERY helpful to my appointment setters who do not necessarily need to sift through all of my event types to see the ones they need. Thanks again. This was worth waiting for!!

    Thanks Hannah!

    Hi. 

    The subscriber should be the one to send out the link to clients. I own a beauty salon and run it though text messages and my diary. I have set this up but do not want the calendar abused.. Should be a function to stop people sending on the link. The link should only work if sent by the subscriber of Calendy and there should be an option to block individuals by either using their name, phone number or email address. I will give it a go but if nothing is put in place, then I will not renew.

    Thanks

    Hello all,

    Thank you for your continued feedback! I will pass along the requests to send multiple people single use links in bulk and to be able to block individual invitees from booking with your Calendly links.

    Best,

    Hannah at Calendly

    I have my Calendly publicly facing on our company website where people can book demos. Private links or changing the URL isn't practical because we can't constantly update our site. However, sometimes trolls get ahold of the link and book my entire calendar with spam, blocking real companies from booking with me. Need this feature to blacklist and email address!

    Is there still no option to block an email from accessing your calendar?

    Same comment from the rest of the group in here. I send out calendar invites to many people during the week and select people will then over-use the link to continuously book up my calendar. A feature to block certain users would be incredibly helpful.

    After being part of this conversation for like a year, I think I might have found a hidden feature that does exactly what we want! - Either that, or I am crazy and everyone knows this...

    Step 1:  Download the Chrome extension for Calendly. Sign in. See list of meeting types

    Step 2: Hover over the meeting type you want to send a one time link for.  This has to be a specific meeting type, not just your general link to your account.

    Step 3: Hover over the middle icon to the right that looks like a clock icon with a link symbol.  It literally says "Create Single Use Link."

    Step 4:  Click it.

     

    I will say that for some reason at the time of writing this, the icon is not clickable.  i.e. it does nothing.  Could be chrome, my account, or a bug.  However, it worked the other day.
