SavvyCal is a calendar scheduling app that makes scheduling meetings easy for both parties by populating an interactive calendar and generating scheduling links.
The company is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN.
SavvyCal was developed by Derrick Reimer. Derrick is a serial entrepreneur and has been involved in successful projects such as Drip, Codetree, Level, and StaticKit.
When creating SavvyCal, Derrick was well aware that there were a lot of scheduling tools on the market. He felt like they were all lacking something in the same area, however – they were not convenient enough for the person receiving the scheduling link.
Derrick himself says he frequently used to go back and forth up to 10 times with people trying to mutually agree on a meeting time.
I’m sure this is something that resonates with a lot of people reading this!
So, he designed SavvyCal to be as simple and efficient for the other person to agree to a meeting time as possible.
He did this by making it easy for people to see your calendar, and choose a meeting time that works for them. As well as generating custom links they just have to click once, and offering flexibility around the date and time someone can select.
How SavvyCal Works
SavvyCal is an app that you can access via logging in through a portal on the SavvyCal website.
You can get started for free, all you need to is sign in via your Google or Microsoft credentials, or create an account.
Then you can download and access the SavvyCal calendar. You can now select which days and times you’re available, and leave those time slots open for people to book a meeting time with you.
You can also schedule meetings yourself, and generate a link to send to the other attendees. All they have to do is click the link, and it’ll populate their information in both your calendar and theirs.
If you want to see how easy it is to select and book a timeslot on a calendar powered by SavvyCal, you can use their test calendar on the homepage of their website.
