Calendly Block

Calendly is a popular tool for easy and efficient scheduling, useful if you want your site visitors to book a specific time slot in your calendar for online and offline meetings directly on your site. It integrates with your personal calendar so you can avoid missing or double-booking appointments.

Calendly offers both free and paid versions and you can use either on your site depending on the features you need.

This feature is available on sites with our Premium, Business, and Commerce plans. If your site has one of our legacy plans, it is available on the Pro plan.

Before You Get Started

In order to use the Calendly block, you will need a Calendly account. If you don’t already have one, sign up here.

Add a Calendly Block

You can add the Calendly block to any page or post on your site. Click on the + Block Inserter icon and search for Calendly.

Alternatively, you can type /calendly on a new line and press enter.

After adding the block, you’ll see a box for your Calendly link. Here’s how to get the link:

  1. Log in to your Calendly account.
  2. Click on the blue button in the top right corner to go to My account.

This is important to note as, depending on what you want to customize, you’ll need to make the changes in either your Calendly account or the block’s settings on your site.

Change the Type of Calendly Embed

Calendly can be displayed on your post or page as a full calendar, button, or popup.

  1. As an inline calendar or as a button

You can toggle between the two modes – Inline calendar and Button – via the Style options situated both in the block contextual menu at the top:

or in the right-side panel:

2. As a floating button

This section of the guide applies to sites with the Business or Commerce plan. If your site has one of our legacy plans, this feature is available on the Pro plan.
