Features to look for in a meeting scheduler tool

Let’s start by talking about what sorts of features you should expect to find in the top meeting scheduler apps.

One of the biggest features to look for is a good user experience, primarily when it comes to ease of use. The whole point of these tools is to streamline the scheduling process. If the tools are hard to use, it kind of defeats the purpose.

You should also look for a tool that can automatically send out reminders about your meetings. Otherwise, you might as well use a regular calendar.

Finally, a good meeting scheduler will integrate with other apps. At the very least, it should integrate with your chosen calendar app, but it’s also good to get a tool that integrates with project management software and automation tools.

These are some of the main criteria we’ve used to select the tools listed below.

10 best meeting scheduler apps for your business

Now let’s get to the reason you’re here. Below are 10 of the top meeting scheduler tools. If you’re looking for a meeting scheduler, one of these apps is probably the best choice for you.

1. Nutshell Scheduler

Price: $37 per month for your whole company (with a Nutshell subscription)

Best for: Deep CRM integration

The first top meeting scheduler tool on our list is Nutshell Scheduler. This meeting scheduler is available as part of Revenue Booster, an add-on to the core Nutshell customer relationship management (CRM) platform.

Every business needs a CRM to help them manage all their customer data and automate sales tasks. If you’re in the market for one, Nutshell is the perfect option. By using Revenue Booster for only an extra $37 per month for your whole company, you can also get access to our top-tier meeting scheduler.

Nutshell Scheduler makes it easy to set up meetings. In Scheduler, you can:

  • Automatically create video call links in your meeting invitations
  • Gather bookings via email links or website forms
  • Automatically import new lead data to the CRM when you set up a meeting
  • And more!

Schedule and manage meetings directly from your CRM

Ditch the extra integration, login and monthly bill for a software that streamlines your process by working natively with your CRM.

2. Calendly

Calendly meeting scheduler website

Price: Free, or $10+ per user per month for more features

Best for: Easy scheduling

Calendly is one of the best-known meeting schedulers out there. Its biggest selling point is simplicity — it’s not bogged down with too many features (although the paid plans do offer more advanced features than the free one). For that reason, Calendly scores big on ease of use.

Another great thing about Calendly is that it comes with tons of integration options. Those integration options include CRMs like Salesforce, but it’s important to note that those CRM integrations aren’t nearly as extensive as a scheduling tool built right into a CRM like Nutshell Scheduler.

3. Doodle

Doodle meeting scheduler website

Price: Free, or $6.95+ per user per month for more features

Best for: Scheduling teamwide meetings

If all your meetings are one-on-one, it’s not too complicated to schedule them. But what about if your meetings tend to include lots of people?

In that case, Doodle could be the best option. 

Doodle allows you to create polls where everyone involved in the meeting votes on the best time to have it. Doodle will then automatically schedule the meeting for the time slot that wins the vote, so you don’t have to do it manually.

Doodle will even send out reminders to people who don’t vote, encouraging them to provide feedback before the poll deadline.

4. Sidekick

Sidekick meeting scheduler website

Price: Free, or $5 per month for more features

Best for: Scheduling meetings across many different locations

In today’s digital world, online meetings are all the rage. But maybe your business is a bit more old-school and likes to set up physical meetings. In that case, Sidekick could be a great option. 

In addition to integrating with various video meeting apps, it also allows you to schedule meetings for real-world locations.

If you use specific physical locations frequently, you can save those locations in Sidekick so it’s easy to schedule meetings at those spots. That means Sidekick can handle a variety of different meeting types and locations.

5. Motion

Motion meeting scheduler website

Price: $12+ per user per month

Best for: Joint scheduling and project management

Remember how Nutshell Scheduler was such a good tool because it allowed you to get a CRM and a scheduler as one tool? Well, Motion is similar — except instead of doubling as a CRM, it doubles as a project management platform.

With Motion, you can manage your whole work schedule — not just meetings, but also projects you’re working on. You can provide how long you expect each meeting or project to take you, and then Motion will automatically put together your schedule based on how everything fits together. (You can always rearrange it however you want, of course.)

6. Google Calendar

Google Calendar meeting scheduler website

Price: Free

Best for: Google integration

Another of the best meeting scheduler apps is Google Calendar. You’re probably familiar with this one already, because if you have a Google account, you have access to it automatically. Like Calendly, it’s very simple, so it’s perfect for businesses that don’t want anything too complicated.

This probably goes without saying, but it also integrates flawlessly with a variety of Google products. If you use Google Meet for all your video calls, Google Calendar is a great companion to it. 

Plus, to create a meeting in Google, all you have to do is add it to the calendar. Anyone you include in the meeting will then automatically receive an email invite.

7. SimplyMeet.me

SimplyMeet meeting scheduler website

Price: Free

Best for: Affordability

SimplyMeet.me isn’t the only free tool on this list. But out of the free options listed here, this tool offers the most features. Platforms like Calendly have limited free plans, but SimplyMeet actually offers a decent number of scheduling capabilities, including:

  • Multiple meeting types
  • Meeting customization
  • Easily navigable interface

None of these are particularly unique, but they get the job done — and for a free tool, it’s hard to complain. Overall, SimplyMeet offers a great deal.

8. SavvyCal

SavvyCal meeting scheduler website

Price: Free, or $12+ per user per month for more features

Best for: Comparing schedules

SavvyCal is another popular meeting scheduler tool. It has a free plan, and it’s great for comparing schedules. If a prospect wants to set up a meeting, they can overlay their schedule on top of your business’s schedule to see which time works best.

Other features include:

  • Options for both online and offline meetings
  • Pre-meeting survey options
  • Ability to set limits on the number of meetings available for the week
  • And more!

9. OnceHub

OnceHub meeting scheduler website

Price: Free, or $10 per user per month for more users

Best for: Analyzing results of meetings

OnceHub is the optimal tool for generating reports for each of your meetings. Those reports include info about what was discussed in the meeting and what results it drove. You can then organize your reports based on those results, including how much revenue (if any) the meeting drove.

Other features include:

  • Different meeting type options
  • Ability to set parameters on how many meetings to have in a given time
  • Booking page customization options
  • And more!

10. Acuity Scheduling

Acuity meeting scheduler website

Price: $16+ per month

Best for: Paid consulting appointments

Last on our list of top meeting scheduler apps is Acuity Scheduling. This tool contains many of the standard scheduling features, including various integration options and the ability to navigate across time zones. However, its standout feature is its ability to charge customers for booking appointments.

This won’t be useful to every business. However, some companies offer features like consulting services, where the meetings themselves are what they’re selling. If you’re one of those companies, Acuity is a great option, because it allows you to charge for the meetings right on the same platform that you schedule them through.
