    Hi Bob,

    Thanks for sharing your example use case. We are looking at a number of ways to make booking useful for multiple parties, so this is helpful!

    We also are in need of this feature! Is there any plan to add this?

    This is the most glaring thing calendly seems to be lacking. :( I frequently need to get other people to agree on the same time to come meet with me, and that doesn't seem possible.

    I also need to be able to schedule a single meeting with multiple invitees.  It seems it would makes sense to be able to enter multiple name + email addresses to a singular appointment.

    And since the time gets blocked when you add the first attendee, you cant even manually fill up the form multiple times for each attendee.

    I just submitted this same query. It is a very glaring gap, and is the deciding factor of whether or not to go Premium with Calendly. I guess, the only solution may be for me to go into my calendar booking, and manually add the meeting invitees' email, then hopefully Google Calendar will do what Calendy doesnt... that is, send out the additional meeting invites.

    We need this feature badly. What is the expected launch date?

    In speaking with Calendly support, the workaround is to add the requirement for additional emails as a question, so that persons booking the meeting will enter the emails for the other attendees as a response to a question. You will then go to your own email calendar (Google or other), look for the new Calendly meeting, which should show yourself and one invitee, and then you manually invite the other people to that same meeting. 

     I have been using that workaround. Its a pain sometimes, because you have to remember to look in the description details for the meeting (I use Google Calendar) to see if additional emails were sent to you. Once I looked just hours prior to the meeting, and so meeting invitees had only hours notice.

    Hope that helps.

    Calendly, please add this. It should be pretty easy on your end to incorporate this feature.

    This would be a very useful feature. Often times, there are multiple attendees that need to be added when the calendar event is being created. I added the above workaround for now but it would be great if this could be baked into Calendly.

    Yes, this needs to be added! Please add Calendly! I schedule meetings with clients, often couples, and only one of them gets the email reminder right now. This should be a basic feature of the system. Personally, I use Calendly for the professional touch...the last thing I want is for my clients to get an invite from a Google calendar....won't work for me. Please add!

    Meetings = 2+ people at times (especially for enterprise sales) 

    This is badly needed. Just got off a call with a client who is going to schedule a meeting with his staff and now realize only he (not his staff) will be the only one notified. You think Calendly should have been aware of this because meetings often involve more than one invitee.

    Suggestion: Invitee should be able to add another "name + email" when scheduling an appointment. 

    Since the earliest post on this is 2016, Calendly is dragging their feets for some reason.

    Hi Calendly, I'd like to add my vote to the chorus of voices that need this feature. We have office hours for which your platform is wonderful. But we also have trainings where we need large numbers of people to be able to sign up. It would be great to be able to keep all of our "helping our users" events in one place.

    Ditto.... really need this feature, and a numerical option for how many bookings allowed for a single event.

    Yes, please add.  Is the concern that you will miss out on subscriptions if you allow multiple non-Calendly paying users join one meeting? If anything I think it would increase paid use because it more realistically reflects the way people want to use your tool/are working with each other, hence generate the need for people to create a higher volume of meeting types.

    Wow, come on this is basic! Just the ability to add multiple names / email addresses and have them all automatically invited. Please confirm when this feature will be added.

    This is a much needed feature.  We frequently book appointments with prospects and clients where we need to send the invitation to multiple invitees and having a primary point of contact book the time and then have to manually update the meeting on my calendar to add the other attendees greatly offf-sets the efficiency of allowing them to self-book appointments.

    Yes please. The invitee needs to be able to add more email addresses/invitees when booking a time on my calendar so all parties receive the email invite. Thanks.

    This is a big miss. I would spread adoption of Calendly across my company with this feature. Without it I can't use it to schedule half of my meetings as a founder. Implement this and more companies will introduce Calendly as a standard for scheduling.

    This feature apparently exists (screenshot below) but I can't find anywhere how to use it!

    @Michael Hall
    What you took a screenshot of is not the same thing. That's more for something like a webinar. What we're referring to is having one invitee be able to add their colleagues or someone else that needs to be in the meeting.
