What makes a scheduling tool powerful

However complex your scheduling needs, Pipedrive’s calendar activity Scheduler can manage it all in one place, meaning no more switching between tools. Look for these scheduling features to save you time and shorten the sales cycle:

Functionality

Power up your workflow with scheduling features and integrations to help you save time.

Control

Set your availability so contacts only see the times you want them to. Set up multiple calendars for different purposes.

Notifications and reminders

Never miss a scheduled call with automated calendar invitations and the option to send call reminders.

Ease of use

Focus on your work instead of figuring out how your meeting scheduler works. Our tools are intuitive, visual and user-friendly.

Value

Reap the benefits of a multi-purposed CRM tool that includes automated scheduling instead of paying for a separate tool.

What to look for in a scheduling tool

The best calendar scheduling tools make you look professional. They get you in front of your prospects and ahead of the competition. Look for these scheduling features:

  • A single, shareable calendar link, adjusted for the recipient’s time zone
  • Buffer times to keep your meetings from running into each other
  • Video-conferencing tool integrations to add video links to your calls
  • Integrations with popular calendar tools to avoid double-booking
  • Pipeline integration to schedule team tasks

Share your availability with a single click

Pipedrive’s calendar tool lets you share your availability online with anyone via a simple booking page. Potential clients pick a time that suits both of you – then the real work can begin.

Here’s how it works:

  • Set your meeting availability by choosing your preferred meeting duration and the times that suit you
  • Add a note, links or any extra fields for the recipient to fill out
  • Save your availability as a template with its own shareable link
  • Email the link to your contacts and invite them to book a suitable time
  • Paste your Scheduler link into your email signature or into documents to provide contacts with more ways to schedule a meeting
  • Your contact receives your availability and selects a time that suits you both
  • Once scheduled, both you and your contact will receive a confirmation email
  • Your newly scheduled meeting is automatically added to your calendar
  • Pipedrive’s calendar removes booked time slots in real time for anyone else who receives your invite link

Take control of your calendar

Sharing a calendar link doesn’t mean you lose control of what gets scheduled and when.

Segment your time and create one calendar for team members and one for clients. Separate calendars for one-time events or set office hours.

Propose a time in two simple ways:

  • Set and share regular availability time slots

  • Allocate and send specific, one-off time proposals

Proposing specific times gives prospects an easy way to say “yes” and makes important meetings happen sooner.

A calendar that links to your pipeline

There’s no point in having a time-saving meeting scheduler if it doesn’t talk to the rest of your CRM. Avoid manual re-entry and notes with a CRM scheduler that integrates with your pipeline management tool’s automation software.

  • See which leads or contacts are going stale and need a follow-up call

  • Create a meeting invitation directly from the detail view of your contacts or deals

  • View upcoming calls and call histories with prospects in your pipeline

Case Study: How Accentuate used Pipedrive’s scheduling tool to scale its business

Before adopting Pipedrive, creative agency Accentuate used a spreadsheet to input customer data and track meetings and follow-ups. With crucial information split across email and spreadsheets, they were missing opportunities to close deals.

With Pipedrive’s CRM and scheduling tool, Accentuate quickly set up its pipeline and started booking meetings and tracking activities all in one place. After the switch, they increased their revenue 10x in four years.

“You need to be able to scale and manage your client base effectively if you want to be serious about competing in a modern business arena. And if you want to scale and manage your client base effectively you need a CRM, like Pipedrive, simple as that.”
