Welcome to the 3.3 changelog. The main focus for the past month for us has been working on the performance of our app and we’ve made huge strides forward. We’ve also shipped a ton of other features including an incredible way to view all of your team member’s availability. Plus a teaser of one of our biggest ever product releases that’s just around the corner.
As of 3.3, large round-robin events will no longer suffer painfully long load times for the booking page. We’ve optimized query performance for these event types and have seen reductions from 25 seconds down to 4 seconds for groups as large as 50 members.
On top of these changes for round-robin events, other algorithm, query and bundle optimizations were made to the booking page, making it faster for everyone.
Lastly, we targeted our slowest database query in the system and reduced its execution time by 90%. This affects many parts of our system, making it feel snappier as you move throughout the app.
For future performance improvements, we are building a new caching mechanism that allows us to load booking pages even faster. This is an exciting technical challenge for us as our system supports many different calendars and users with a wide range of events and settings.Check it out
You can now easily see the availability of all of your team members, across multiple timezones, in one beautiful view. Need to know who’s available at 10 am PDT? This view has your answer. If no one is available, you can click them and make them available every day, or just available on one particular day by adding a date override.
Our primary inspiration came from the excellent worldtimebuddy. Anyone working across multiple time zones is likely to be familiar with this site. It’s not the sexiest UI, but the UX is solid. We hope ours is as easy to use.Try it

Booking page column view only shows available days
Previously the column view would show days that don’t have available slots with a placeholder saying there were no slots available. Now those days are hidden entirely so more of your availability is shown on screen providing more options for bookers. If you prefer people to also see days that are not available, the Weekly view works perfectly for this.
Show or hide available seat count
There is now a checkbox to "Show the number of available seats". When checked, your bookers will see the exact number of available seats for an event. When unchecked it will only show an approximate like "Seats almost full".
Add ICS events to workflow reminders
You can now include a calendar event (ICS file) in your workflow reminder emails. Once you have an email set as the Action, you will see a new checkbox below the email body field. Simply check it to add it.
Bulk actions on members in organisations
You can now bulk edit users in the members table in Organisations. This means you can quickly add as many people as you want to a team, delete people in bulk and now that we have the UX for it, we’ll be adding much more bulk edit capabilities.
Team admins can see connected apps of members
A little icon will appear on member's cards on the member's page so you can see what apps each of your members have installed. The current UI for this is effective but not very scalable so we will be improving this very soon.
Ordering for workflow and routing forms
You can now order your workflows and routing forms just like you can with your event types.
Recently added apps in the app store
There’s a new section in the app store that allows you to see our catalogue of recently added apps. Our most recent two are just below.
New app: Make.com / Integromat
You can use the Make.com app to automate your workflows when a booking is created, rescheduled, cancelled or when a meeting has ended. You can also get all your bookings with the 'List Bookings' module.
New app: Basecamp
You can now have meetings booked from Cal.com automatically get added to project schedules in Basecamp with all meeting details passed over to Basecamp.
