Use a Smart Link Snippet for Calendly meeting booking
Once connected, you’ll see a new Smart Link Snippet in Cloze for Calendly meeting booking. You can add this snippet into your signature or into templates.
Add Calendly to your email signature
You can add Calendly to your email signature in Cloze so every email you send includes the Calendly scheduling link.
Add Calendly to an email template
It is also helpful to add your Calendly scheduling link to email templates in the Cloze template library. This makes it easy to follow-up on emails and suggest a meeting simply by using a new template or snippet that includes your booking link.
Calendly offers best practices and some template examples on their blog for sharing your scheduling link.
Cloze automatically creates single-use Calendly booking links
When the Calendly Smart Link is used in a Cloze email (or included in your signature) it gets converted into a unique single-use Calendly booking link. This can be helpful in scenarios where you may want to limit access to your schedule.
For example, if you add the Calendly booking link to your signature, every email you send has a different single-use Calendly link in your signature.
In Calendly settings, you can adjust which Event Type is used for the Smart Link, and how many times the link can be used. You can also set the default text for the Smart Link uses at the time you insert it into an email, template, or signature.
Create templates for your team that use Calendly booking links
When everyone on your team connects their Calendly account to Cloze, you can share templates across your team and whoever sends the template has a link to their calendar automatically inserted.
You can centrally create and manage a single template and Cloze will smartly insert single-use booking links so the meeting is always booked with the right team member.
