Are you familiar with the hassle of trying to set up a time to meet with someone? “Can we meet at 2pm?” “Sorry, I’m not available. How does 3pm work?” “No, that doesn’t work for me.” The back and forth can be a huge waste of time.

HubSpot’s meeting tool connects with your calendar, allowing anyone with your meeting link to see all of the days and times you’re available and book a meeting with you without any conversation.

This is something each user must set up for themselves, and doing so is easy.

A connected calendar enables you to:

  • Sync meetings created in HubSpot to your calendar.
  • Sync HubSpot tasks to your calendar (depending on service level). 
  • Customize your meeting scheduling page URL and domain.
  • Add a meeting link to your chat profile.
