    Hi all -

    Thank you for submitting this idea! While I don’t have a target date on when we will offer advanced availability settings for ad hoc meetings, I can share your suggestions with the team to discuss further.

    Best,
    Hannah at Calendly

    I agree! We are unable to use Ad Hoc meetings at this point because of these limitations.

    Agree! For me, I'd like to be able to add dial in information.

    I have certain questions that I need for all my meetings....such as a phone number.

    Having a phone # of the person I am meeting with is very important if I am running late....then, I can call them. 

    There should be a default settings page for Adhoc meetings, and the ability to override and customize per each Adhoc invite.

    While you're at it...let us require phone number for SMS notifications/reminders for ad-hoc meetings!!!!

    Agree on all fronts - making a phone number a must-have for ad-hoc would be very helpful.

    Would it be possible to create a button that allowed ad hoc meetings to be created from a meeting type in the extension?

    Essentially to build out the 'Add times to email' button so that the the user can choose specific times, as opposed to just being able to choose days. 

    Thanks

    These are all great suggestions.  I would like to have a field for a number to send a text reminder to them about the appointment because they ask me to do that each time.  I'm having to create a manual reminder appointment to tell me to text them.  That's toooooooo much work.

    Please add settings to Ad Hoc meetings, they are now pretty useless.

    Dear CALENDLY TEAM! Please take this from a Tech Startup CEO as a friendly reminder: You are a success thanks to your loyal users, and there are many alternatives to scheduling automation out there. Listen to your users on this one and "Yes Please!!  Add settings to Ad Hoc meetings!  It would be so very very helpful!" per the last users on this chain! Best, Mustafa

    I'd like to upvote this also. In general Adhoc meetings should have basic customization and post-scheduling flexibility such as meeting titles, default text, and ability to update a location in my default calendar app (Google) after an adhoc meeting is scheduled.

    I upvote this as well.  Not being able to include buffer settings in ad hoc meeting schedules has burned me more than once.

    Please add this functionality!

    Thank you!

    I see that the last update on this is almost a year old. Any updates on when this feature will be available?

    I would like an update on this topic as well.  The inability to add questions to ad hoc meetings limits my ability to use this function.

    Original Post Date was July 16, 2018.......They are not going to do this update. I would recommend to either forget about it or find another provider that offers it.

    We would really value the ability to have advanced settings, like buffer times, for Ad Hoc meetings. Additionally, the Zoom integration does not work with Ad Hoc meetings which is really limiting for us.

    Yes, and please make Ad Hoc Meetings for each Meeting Type, so each Ad Hoc Meeting would inherit the settings of it's own type.

    Easy Pizza!! come on guys...

    Just another voice saying: Yes, I assumed this feature would be available, the ability to customize settings for ad hoc meetings. I have an ad hoc meeting scheduled for today, my first, and *just* realized that unlike all my other meeting sign-ups, this one did have the client choose a venue, so no Zoom or phone contact info collected. Not intuitive. Thank you for continuing to develop this functionality!

    Yes, some kind of ability to set default settings on an Ad Hoc meeting would be appreciated. For my particular use case, I'd like to be able to send email confirmations rather than calendar invites when an ad hoc meeting is created.

    Additionally, when I offer ad hoc available times for a client to select, and I offer those same times to different clients, I would like there to be a notification that pops up for my client when a time I sent is no longer available, rather than double-booking my clients. I thought that was the whole point of using Calendly, and yet I've had two meetings double-booked this week on calendars that Calendly is supposed to be "checking for conflicts." Is there a solution to this already?

    Please add at least text and email notifications to Ad Hoc meetings.
