Reschedule Meetings Feature

Contacts are double booking without canceling their previous meeting! It would be great if they got a HubSpot confirmation email with a reschedule button on it, or if the Contact already has a meeting book, the Meetings page recognizes it and presents an option to reschedule or cancel old meeting.

Hi Communnity,

Thank you all for sharing your feedback!

For transparency I am updating this issue from "In Planning" to "Not Currently Planned" because we wont be able to get to this in the next quarter. This is one of the top ideas in Meetings and will be a top priority for Meetings in the future. I will update here once we are able to reprioritize this work for development.

 

Best,

Glen

Plans change, things come up, for you and your contacts. Without the ability for your contacts to reschedule, they will often no-show, cancel, or use your Meeting link to re-book. We plan to add a feature to Meetings to allow contacts to reschedule a meeting. This is not yet in development, but on our product roadmap for Meetings.

This this this! We can't switch from Calendly to Meetings until this exists.

 

Also, is there any way to keep Google from auto supplying a Hangout link as well?

@jskirst YES! You don't know how many times our sales team calls a lead and they are on the Hangout already.

I agree! This is adding manual work for me and confusion over meetings that prospects can't attend. They email me saying they need to change, but don't know how to cancel it. So, if I don't cancel the meeting manually, then I show up and forget that they've cancelled. Also, I often have to email them back with another link, as they don't realize that they can use the same link.

 

A reschedule or cancel option in the email confirmation would be really valuable.

You can actually turn off the hangouts in Google meeting requests (it's a google thing, not HubSpot). Steps are listed here.

 

Totally agree with this add "reschedule" and "cancel meeting" links in meeting requests!

Mitwirkender

yes please

 This would be really useful...

This would be a great idea for there to be an option to reschedule meetings booked. Not only for the consumer but also the sales person calling.

Yes. A prospect today was looking for a rescheduling link. This just goes into Google Calendar and now I'm at the mercy of Google.

Yes, yes and yes!!

 

We also use Calendly and thinking that people will cancel via the Google calendar or Outlook is wrong. People just don't turn up - very annoying but with Calendly, they just hit the cancel or rescheule links in the email (as we send reminders 1 hour and then again 10 minutes before) which ensures a 95% attendance rate.

 

It's great having Hubspot copy the Likes of Pipedrive for CRM and Calendly for meetings but unless they make it as good as these, you end up still having to use all the external softwares defeating the object of swicthing to Hubspot in the first place!

 

Hubspot, PLEASE PLEASE sort this very much needed and easy to implement feature!!!

Let me pile on to this request.  Hubspot, this is a nobrainer!  We get requests to reschedule all the time and the prospects ask how to do it.  In fact, it is quite embarassing to have to cancel manually and resend them the meeting link.  Please make this a priority!

Berater

We need this (and it seems like pretty basic calendering functionality).

Sachkundiger

Voted for yes. We wanted to move from Calendly to hubspot meetings, but expaining customers  how to reschedule a meeting takes too much time Smiley triste 

Berater

agree! need this feature too!

Yes, please! Clients are asking for this and the double booking drives us crazy!

Mitwirkender

 Yo HubSpot, this is definitely a no-brainer for a scheduling tool.  Please add this so that we can take the manual work out of the big percentage of reschedules.  The idea someone mentioned about providing a reschedule link in the confirmation email would be great as well as identifying an already scheduled meeting when someone visits the scheduling tool again.

 

Thanks!

PLEASE do this. We switched from Calendly recently as we wanted all our contacts and their activity in the Hubspot CRM but this is a major pain! Especially with a team of sales guys trying to book meetings all the time!!! 

Mitwirkender

Need to be able to reschedule or cancel a  meeting on the fly. Seems like a pretty obvious need. How is this not out of the box functionality? Hubspot have you never had a prospect need to cancel or reschedule a meeting?? 

Mitwirkender

It is ludicrous that a platform that costs $4,000/month can not do what every single solitary other $30/mo and under sceduling app can do. Stop this insanityh, & spend 24 hours coding this in. If literally every other SaaS cloud tool can do it, surely the "premier" marketing automation / CRM / Service tool (Hubspot) can do it. THis is needed - nea, required - like yesterday.

Thanks,

The goal for our sales people is to book meetings -- and unfortunately, we have dealt with a lot of no-shows. A "Cancel" and "reschedule" feature within the confirmation and reminder emails would be extremely useful.
