Five reasons to use calendar scheduling during the holiday season

When you think about the holiday season, calendar scheduling probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. This is unfortunate because calendar scheduling can make everything easier. Just take a moment to consider all the events and competing priorities you’re going to be juggling in the next couple of weeks. Sure, they might all go to plan, but it’s more than likely that life will throw you a couple of curve balls. One or two things will be canceled, and something will most likely pop up at the last minute. Using a calendar scheduling product like Cal.com will help to make everything just a bit simpler.

1 Multiple time zones

During the holidays, you often need to communicate with people in different time zones. These individuals might be friends, family, coworkers, or a combination of all three. Trying to coordinate a date and time to connect that works for all parties involved during the busiest time of the year is more than a bit stressful. Luckily, Cal.com is built to accommodate multiple time zones. Sharing your Cal.com link makes it easy to book meetings with individuals worldwide. Cal also supports the creation of multiple availability schedules, each with a separate time zone. This is especially helpful if you travel a lot over the holiday season.

2 Easy rescheduling

There’s always something going on during the holidays, maybe an office party or a family get-together. Surviving the holidays is almost like playing musical chairs, but with blocks of time, you often end up rescheduling quite a bit. Traditionally rescheduling appointments can involve a ton of back and forth via email or over the phone. However, when you use Cal, you don’t need to worry about that. Rescheduling with Cal simply means hitting that reschedule button and selecting a new time and date. 

3 Automated reminders

The holiday season is a busy time, so automated reminders can make a big difference. Cal’s reminder workflows help ensure that nothing gets lost in the seasonal shuffle. You can set custom reminders to be delivered via email or SMS or use Cal’s default templates. Since reminder workflows can be set up in advance and applied to events as needed, they represent an easy way to simplify scheduling this holiday season.

4 Multiple calendar connections

One of the great things about Cal is we don’t limit your calendar connections. You can connect your work calendar or your personal calendar. You can connect popular mainstream calendars like Google and Outlook or use less-known products like Baïkal and Kerio Connect. Combining all your calendars with your Cal account lets the platform verify your day-to-day schedule and cross-reference it with your availability. This reduces double booking by ensuring appointments are only set for when you actually have time.

5 Apps on tap

Cal understands that one size doesn’t fit all unless, of course, that one size is customizable. With that in mind, we’ve stocked our app store with tons of different tools that anyone can use modularly. This means you can add all sorts of integration with a click of a button. We have apps like SendGrid, Giphy, WipeMyCal, and WordPress, just to name a few. You can use any of these apps and more to customize your Cal.com experience without touching a single line of code.

As a product, Cal is focused on ensuring that our users have access to an intuitive and minimalist platform that makes their lives easier. We’re a product and platform designed to help people book appointments and meetings as quickly and effortlessly as possible. Our goal this holiday season is to help our customers to spend less time dealing with the back and forth of scheduling so that they have more time to spend with the people who matter the most to them.
