    Is it redirect the parent page or just the calendly iframe?

    were there any changes in the past day? because that behavior has changed.

    Hi Eylon,

    We have just released new functionality that will open the redirect page in a new browser window instead of redirecting within the iframe!

    If you have additional questions or concerns about this change, please feel free to reach out to

    Hi Shannon,

    How can I grab the specific meeting details to include on my 'redirect' confirmation page? I still want the event details to include on my custom thank you page.

    Hi Sara,

    Calendly will pass information about the meeting to the redirected site by attaching parameters to the URL when they arrive. Use this information to show event information, or track conversions more easily by monitoring each meeting being booked.

    With the Redirect to an external site option selected, you can add the URL of the website you would like to send invitees once they schedule with you. Calendly will append variables to the link that include event and invitee information. Use these to build custom content on your site:

      event_start_time (in invitee timezone (iso8601 format))
      event_end_time (in invitee timezone (iso8601 format))
      invitee_first_name (when applicable)
      invitee_last_name (when applicable)
      invitee_full_name (when applicable)
      invitee_payment_amount (when applicable)
      invitee_payment_currency (when applicable)
      utm_source (if available) 
      utm_medium (if available) 
      utm_campaign (if available)
      utm_content (if available)
      utm_term (if available)

    With the help of a developer, you should be able to create a GET request to then display this information on your thank you page. :)

    Hi Shannon,

    Do you guys also provide invitee_email as URL parameter?

    Is there a technique to restore the behaviour identified above where the redirect occurs within the iframe rather than redirecting the top page?  

    We are looking for this capability as it allows us to to continue on with a workflow.  

    As an alternate capability to implement this, it would be very convenient if a value could be provided when the calendly link is opened that would be provided back to the redirect page.  If something like that was available that capability would facilitate this pattern for us as well.

    I would like to use those variables on my wordpress page but it did not work. Should I include the variables in brackets?

    Please can you show me an example? This would be great!

    Thank you.

    Hi @Holger,

    While Calendly passes this information to your site, we do not offer instructions for how to utilize this data. Think of it like a home renovation project: We provide you with the materials but it'd be up to you to hire contractors that are able to perform the renovation.

    In this case, we'd recommend reaching out to a Wordpress developer who may be able to parse the data from Calendly/perform a GET request and build custom content on your Wordpress site.

    I got it to work. Insert this javacode:

    function URLParam( $atts ) {  
        extract( shortcode_atts( array(
            'param' => 'param',
        ), $atts ) );
        return $_GET[$param];  
    add_shortcode('URLParam', 'URLParam'); 

    then use this shortcode in your html page:

    [URLParam param='invitee_first_name']

    Now my only issue is...  how do we get the "event_start_time (in invitee timezone (iso8601 format))" to be able to display in readable format such as it show's on the end of your video posted on this page?:
