We currently use the Team/Group option for allowing our prospects to schedule sales demos with multiple internal employees. Often there is an external party (not an employee or HubSpot user) we would like to include in the meeting or our prospects want to include other attendees (typically co-workers or their own consultants) of their own. We don't need to see their availability but I would like a way to CC the invite to them. Ideally, I would like to add an optional CC address on the meeting configuration and we could optionally receive additional CC addresses via the meeting registration form.
This would eliminate some administrative work on my part and improve our communication/coordination. Currently, we have to keep an eye on meeting invites and add these additional attendees manually.
If you think this would benefit you, please vote for this idea!
Thanks for sharing these comments and ideas. We'll be reviewing this idea in the coming weeks to get a better understanding for what the technical lift would be to include such a feature. Should there be a potential 'quick win' then we may be able to project a timeline and update this idea to 'In planning' but should there be some complications, or we do not have the capacity to pick this work up this year, then we will update to 'Not currently planned' and assess where it will fall on our priorities in 2022.
Some additional thoughts:
- As it was mentioned, we will not be able to check availability of contacts that are not on your team, so these meetings could be booked over their existing availability
- This would most likely be a feature add to the 'Group' meeting type.
- We will be reviewing this feature as part of a broader theme of work that we are currently reviewing to improve the flexibility and use-cases for scheduling across HubSpot
I hope this context is helpful, thanks again for your ideas and feedback!
This is an important feature for us as well, and the meetings system has limited value for us without this. We are holding out in hopes this feature is implemented before going back to a third-party scheduling system.
This would be really nice, along with group webinar scheduling!
This would be great! I was trying to add a Meeting link to an auto email so that guests can add it straight to their calendar.
It works perfectly - for one person - then my calendar is greyed out for that date/time.
If multiple people could book that Zoom meeting that would be super helpful.
we really need this
Anyone have any updates on this?
Would love to have an update on this review.
Calendly provides this and would love to get off it and have everything live in Hubspot.
+1! Not sure why this isn't already part of Hubspot Meetings. The additional person's availability isn't that important - that's up to the person signing up to suss out and verify their availability.
Bonus points would be the ability to denote optional.
Heck yea! Let's add some much over due needed features and keep being a much better system and value than caaaaalendly! Haha.
+1 would love more activity on feedback of roadmaps on review process... It'd help keep the team accountable and moving forward efficiently as well. Perhaps a public viewable kanban trello board Ehhhhh? 🤔 Think their different enough to not be timid to use that software for this process, personally haha.
Cheers HubSpot team! Look forward to that update 😉
Why is this not yet done? I am seeing this all over the community starting 5 years ago.
Yes, please add this feature! We are trying to schedule collaborative Zoom MEETINGS, not Webinars, with up to 60 attendees that woud be signing up for a time slot. It is looking like we are going to have to use Calendly for this feature, and pay for that as well... It should not be that complicated to allow multiple external attendees to a meeting and be able to cap it at a certain amount.
agreed. I am really on the fence about switching to Calendly. I love their tool, I just want all the integration and analytics of an integrated solution.
Heck yea! It would certain allow us to voice our absolute necessity for this feature in this otherwise amazing software platform! I love keeping things in the HubSpot system, but when I can't get a coaching webinar together or simple add to calendar links for appointments, it makes things quite frustrating and difficult. Hear hear to begging for the priority feature add!
Haven't had time to post, but I recently signed up for a HubSpot webinar and they had a page with calendar links, and it was certainly a one to many webinar. But it did seem they were using the earlier recommendation of an alternate software system for that. But looked good and worked well. Sure wish to help the team see the value not only for us thousands of customers, their own internal Ops, but also their external marketing! 3 birds one feature eh? 🤔
I have been lurking and looking for this update for some time - just wanted to see where things are here.
@glencornell any updates on this feature request 🙂 ?
even with the single booking (not group) sometimes the person (client) booking the meeting wants to CC someone else on their team, no need to check their calendar, simply send them a copy of the meeting invite. this would be helpful.
This need for this feature has not come up until now. Our team needs to book a timeslot that needs to be filled with multiple attendees. Adding this feature would be very useful...
would it be really usefull especially when you would like to do demo of product with several leads or meeting with severel people of one company.
I just reported this request to HubSpot support. I was a user of Calendly and it had an option to allow someone who is booking a meeting on your calendar to invite others. We are using this to schedule meetings and demos. Often our prospects want to include others. This will allow them to do that and not request it from me late
This idea should be implemented, since attendes who book a time with us, also want to add their collgues. Calendly has this feature
We have a need for this as well.
