    This feature is going to be incredibly helpful! One thing that would be great is to be able to select the times that you want to add in the email (similar to the Ad-hoc) versus just using the first 3 times available. I work with all of our West Coast clients so we would never really send anything before 12pm EST. This also means that most of my mornings are typically open and would always display times that I wouldn't send.

    Thanks for always trying to make Calendly even more amazing! While it does save a bit of searching if one of the 9 possible times suits, that's about the only benefit I see.  We would need to have the ability to change time zones functioning for it to work for us, and then as the previous comment mentions, we probably wouldn't send it from East to West, because they probably wouldn't want a 6am appointment, so we'd just send the main link, which kind of defeats the need of this 'extra'.

    This just give me another opportunity to encourage you to instead working on 'ad hoc' meetings - being able to customize the email that is sent with them, reminders, etc.

    Another absolutely spectacular feature and step in the right direction. Especially with the “Need another time? See full list of times” tocuh.

    With that said I’ll echo Lydia’s sentiment about choosing times, given that often we’ll want to suggest times in the afternoon rather than first thing in the morning. But even without the more perfected version, this is still a tool we’ll use a ton.

    Idea... maybe when you click on a date for the embedded availability in email... that then shows you which times are available on that day, and then you can click on up to three of them.

    Keep up the amazing work. You’re transforming how we work and saving us HOURS of scheduling headache every week!

    I like the new ability to embed my calendar availability directly in an email using the chrome extension. But currently it limits me to picking 3 days and it automatically shows just the first 3 slots available those days. I'd like the option to pick how many days I can show availability for and how many slots. Optimally, it could show more substantive availabilty so the reader of the email feels like they know all or the vast majority of options available to them. 3 days and 3 slots is too limiting in some instances. Allow the user to select how many slots are embedded. if you did that, I'd find this cool new functionality infinitely more helpful. thanks!

    I’m beyond thrilled that this mostly behaves the way I hoped. As other have said- having the same level of customization and reminders as your normal events is ideal. I just figured out that the other person nor myself can reschedule an Adhoc meeting. The option isn’t there on my Dashboard and from the confirmation, the link is expired for the other party. Def should be a way to reschedule without cancelling and starting over. Keep up the good work!
    Oh, and recall having multiple options 3-4 time slots for multiple days but it only showed 2 per day up to three days. I’m still ok with it since the link below says “need more times” but it’s be icing on the cake to have a few extras on the face of the widget I paste in my email!

    Any word on if there will be the option to be able to hand choose the times you display, like you can with Adhoc? At least be able to have a couple morning and a couple afternoon vs the first ones of your day? I start at 6:30am so when I try to send the times and I happen to have more openings those mornings, all three days show 6:30, 7:00, 7:30am etc. need to be able to show some diversity and flexibility, even if it isn't as broad as the Adhoc does. Just give me one early, one mid, and one late day - or something! Thanks :) Still love this feature
