    Hello,

    Thank you for submitting this idea! While I don’t have a target date on when we will offer the invitee guest feature from your Calendly Dashboard, I can share your suggestions with the team to discuss further.

    Best,
    Hannah at Calendly

    How do I switch off the additional guest option?

    Thanks

    This would be a great feature. After getting a client to book a call, we often want to add another team member, and adding the person as a guest would ensure they always get an up to date calendar invite even if the client reschedules.

    This is hugely needed. Adding the guest function has been great. It's also only the first step. I'm still hesitant to use the guest function because we can't edit guests, whether actual meeting attendees or assistants that need to stay in the loop. It undermines the advantage of Calendly's automated reminders.

    When we send out the meeting invite, we've already had instances where the recipient either forgets or does not know how to add additional guests. (Further aided by the fact that the +add guests is not immediately obvious, particularly to less tech savvy people). Or they decide they want to bring a guest later. Either way, then we have to create an internal calendar event, invite that person, and remember to send a manual email reminder. It's exactly the work we are trying to avoid by paying for Calendly.

    Another issue is if a guest was originally added, but then they tell us they are can no longer attend. We have no easy way of stopping the automated reminder from going to them, which then makes our office look like we forgot. Rather unprofessional.

    Please give us the capability of going to a scheduling meeting and add/removing guests. It will make Calendly much more usable!

    How about as a first step we make "Additional Guests" a required field?

    Yes, I need this today, as I need to schedule another guest after I've created the event. Please do add it soon.

    Does anyone have a good workaround for this? Or is the only option to delete the event and reschedule it with the new additional guests?

    Team,

    This is a huge need out here, can you at least provide us with a update as to your progress to adding this to your functionality?  We are new users and saw this issue immediately.

    Seems like a simple fix.  Why haven't you addressed this in the last 14 months?  Seriously.

    Teachers at my school are using Calendly for parents to sign up for small group meetings and would appreciate the "add guest" for Group invites, as well as, the 1:1 invites. This would allow for our elementary school aged students to have reminders pop for their small group sessions and take some of the pressure off parents working from home and supporting their children with school.

    I'm doing lots of interviewing. So the invite is initially a "placeholder" by my assistant, and later on, when the candidate confirms their availability, we'd like to add them--so it would be great if the people receiving the Calendly Email get a 3rd option at the bottom: 1) cancel 2) reschedule 3) amend (add/remove guests)

    That last option would be great
