Do you have a solid way to organize your schedule? With Google Calendar and Calendly you will have easy access to your schedule from anywhere and on all of your devices. In this project we will work on setting up your accounts and utilizing these tools to make your schedule flow better. When you use these applications together you will see that Calendly interacts with your Google Calendar so that you can seamlessly schedule meetings for times when you are available. We all need an easy button for more time in our busy lives and this is one of them! By the end of this project you will have that easy button as you are able to invite colleagues and those you want to meet with to use the calendar app to easily schedule a time with you. No more going back and forth comparing your schedules, it is super easy and will save you time. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.


You will need a Google account. You can sign up for a Calendly account during the course.
