Add the Calendly link in Socio

You can use a Calendly scheduling link as a Web Link, an External Link, or an attendee call-to-action link. You can also use the Web List feature for a list of multiple different calendars. Whichever you choose, make sure you uncheck the box for Open link in external browser, so it embeds in your event app. Pass Data to URL isn't relevant here, so leave it unchecked.

You can have sponsors, speakers, and event staff set up their own Calendly calendars. Once someone has their calendar ready to go, have them send it to you so you can add it to the appropriate place in the Socio event. Attendees can then use the calendars to schedule demos, follow-ups, and more!
