Let’s address the elephant in the room: There are a hundred and one scheduling tools out there.
So why SavvyCal?
While most scheduling tools are certainly convenient for the person sending a link, are they actually convenient for the person receiving the link? Traditional scheduling tools put the burden on the recipient, which can be even more inconvenient than just trading emails.
We believe using a scheduling tool should be just as easy for the recipient as it is for the sender.
That’s why we’ve built SavvyCal from the ground up to prioritize the user experience of the recipient while still giving you all the features you know and love (+ more!) to avoid the back and forth scheduling dance over email.

Looking forward to hearing what you think.
Hey Antoine, I’ve put together this short list for you to skim through some of the reasons to switch to SavvyCal.
This is just the beginning, so expect this list to grow over time!
For now, here are 7 reasons you can’t *not* love SavvyCal:
This way, they don’t have to open up another screen and switch back and forth to cross-reference.
Now you don’t have to create a new link for every duration you want to offer!
Have an important investor, candidate, or guest you’re talking to? Sprinkle a little personal touch by pre-populating their name and email address.
We all have blocks of time that we’d rather take a meeting, but it was impossible to let the recipient know… until now.
Cap the number of meetings you schedule per day, week, or month.
These days, most of us are juggling multiple calendars at a time (work, personal, side hustle, etc).
Send every link with the peace of mind that you’re showing exactly what you want your recipients to see.
Emails, meetings, instant communication, constant connectivity, social media, colleagues, Zoom fatigue, task switching...
What’s the key to productivity?
Cal Newport divides work into two buckets:
It may sound extreme, but he recommends to “schedule every minute of your day.” This time blocking approach involves dividing your day into “blocks” and then assigning activities to each one.
So what does this actually look like?
The point of time blocking isn’t to create a schedule you can stick to perfectly each day. Instead, it forces you to be more intentional with your time and how you direct your attention.
Batching like-tasks together will reduce context-switching and increase your efficiency throughout the day.
Choosing specific times and days you take meetings instead of taking them any time is one of the best ways to protect your deep work time.

Trying to rely on the force of your willpower alone will just leave you discouraged. It’s fleeting and mood-driven, so it needs to be corralled with a purposeful schedule.
Decide where you’ll work and for how long, gather everything you’ll need to do that work, remove distractions, and catch yourself if you find your attention drifting.
Schedule time with yourself to get deep work done so nothing else can steal it.
You might want to start practicing deep work with 1-2 hour segments a day, and then gradually work your way up to longer, more frequent stretches.
Cap the number of meetings you take on each day, week, and month to avoid Zoom fatigue. Too many meetings and you’ll use up all the brainpower you’ll need to get deep work done.
Create meeting limits in SavvyCal →
Parkinson's Law is the old adage that work expands to fill the time allotted.
"Parkinson’s Meetings Law" could state that meetings expand to fill the time allotted. Maybe that could explain how the average length of a meeting has increased by 10% in the last 15 years and that the average duration of a meeting is now between 31 to 60 minutes.
Instead of the usual 30- or 60-minute standard meeting lengths, consider testing out 15- or 25-minute meeting lengths.
Hope this has been useful for you!
Not only did we build SavvyCal to provide an exceptional experience for your recipients, we also built it to help you protect your time and get more deep work done.
