Compare zcal vs. Calendly

Calendly is a basic scheduling tool that allows users to avoid lengthy email exchanges to book meetings. Users input their available times in the calendar and share a link with guests, who then select a time that works for them. Calendly offers a free plan which is very limited. It includes a single invite link and calendar connection. In order to add more links or calendars you must upgrade to one of one of their paid plans.

zcal is a great Calendly alternative that is completely Free, modern, and easy to use. In addition to offering the most generous free plan of any scheduling tool, zcal makes it easy to create beautiful on-brand experiences so you don’t offend your invitees with a generic-looking booking page.

Frequently asked questions

How do zcal and Calendly free plans compare?

Although Calendly offers a free plan, it is very limited. If you want to create more than 1 link or connect more than 1 calendar, you will quickly hit a pay wall. With zcal you not only get unlimited links and calendar connections, but you also get most other Calendly premium features for free.

How do zcal and Calendly differ in terms of customization?

zcal has a strong focus on making every scheduling page look unique and on-brand. It does this by putting self-expression front and center, letting organizers showcase themselves with a cover photo, welcome video, and personal intro. These elements both inform and entertain guests, helping them answer the two most important questions before every meeting - who exactly am I meeting and why should I be excited to meet them?

What types of links can I create with zcal?

The zcal free plan includes unlimited 1-on-1 and meeting poll links as well as Group invite links. Calendly’s free plan only includes a single 1-on-1 link and meeting polls.

How does zcal compare to other Calendly alternatives?

While there are a number of scheduling tools on the web, most of them offer very limited free plans. Generally, you have to subscribe to their premium plans in order to truly get value from them. At zcal, our goal is to not only provide the best scheduling experience on the web, but also to package all the best features for free.
