    Thanks for the enthusiasm everyone! To answer a few questions regarding this update:

    • The new month view will be released to every account in February. See here.
    • Our current view has served us well, but it will be retired with this release. Users will not be able to switch between views.
    • Part of this release includes auto-detecting invitee location to determine the display of your available times in either 24-hour or AM/PM format.
    • All of your integrations, notifications and settings will remain unchanged. This update will not affect Calendly’s functionality, but it will improve your invitees’ scheduling experience!

    Stay tuned for more!

    Will the current view still be an option? While this month view looks great, people I schedule times with have commented often on how easy the large day selectors are, especially on mobile devices.

    I know I'm in the minority here, but I love the existing circle view, and actually dislike the monthly calendar view. The circles are so clean and modern. I'd love the option to stick with the circle view!

    Looks great- How about a recurring meeting option? That would be amazing!

    I only book in 3-4 days per month with a clients, so I'm now being forced to use a cluttered day-grid view where most of my dates will be greyed out.

    Clients have said how easy and uncluttered the circle dates view was, only seeing dates that were available.

     

    I get that this new view will be good for some people, but why will you not allow the other/older view to stay and be optional?

    This looks like a nice update. One thing, please consider making the Time Zone more obvious—I've had customers in other time zones not notice that the calendar was in Eastern, not Mountain (for example). I'm concerned that the time zone info in the new view may still not be obvious enough. 

    That said, I'm excited for this new view!

    I like it too!

    I too hope you add a feature where both parties get a text message alert/reminder about an appointment.  Good idea! Thanks Kilan Anderson.

    Please make it an option to switch between the old an new version.
    I understand the new version could be very nice for some people, but the way I use this application the old calender was better.

    !! The new view is not mobile friendly!! I'm tracking visitors via HotJar and i can see people struggling to select a day... WHAT IS THIS?!  If you guys dont make it mobile friendly, SOON, i'll have no other option but to leave you.... (fyi, i loved your UI for YEARS... hate the change ob mobile device)

    Can you PLEASE bring back the old view? I was getting 80% of people booking on the calendar using your old view, and since switching I've had 0%! 

    This is really hurting the work I'm doing for my client for whom I'm running ads for to her calendar. PLEASE give us the option to use the old view!

    When I first complained, I wasn’t taken seriously... USERS, think about what this change means to your business... The look and feel is BAD.. we deserve the option to switch to original.

    Also, I’ve seen the original look & feel STILL working on some older sites...

    Thus, an option or switch IS possible...

    ?month-view=disabled

    ...for the ones who need to toggle back to the week view.

    @Katie > Any news regarding the "noon" divider for the month view?

    @Core Wisdom I have noticed that it is possible to return to the old calendar view via the parameter ?month-view=disabled in the URL of an event. Maybe this will help temporarily as a workaround.

    Will there be an option for each event to toggle between the monthly view and the weekly view? It would be extremely useful for our teams to have both options.

    Are you going to have a feature where we can display it in the old format? Had clients say they can't reschedule as they can't see till the next month. Also in embeds it's very buggy. I only want people to be able to book a few days out.

    Nice! Any chance this will help with adding event defaults to the Ad Hoc system as well? Month view is probably unrelated, haha, but maybe not? 😊 I think a number of users really want to see Ad Hoc improved. I would add it to emails all day if-so.

    Anyhow, thanks again & great job Calendly!

    Great update. Maybe now you can find the time to add the long-awaited affiliate program? It’s been 18 months since we requested this. Come on!

    i have integrated my Zoom scheduler with the Calendly platform so that when they sign up - they get a zoom connection for the meeting right within their confirmation.   Will that integration carry through or will I need to re-establish it?  I hope it stays...  thanks.

    Love it ... thanks for expanding this!  Any thoughts as to when the Calendly team will expand abilities to integrate Calendly with Lever and other ATS?
