READ TIME: 7 MINUTES

At Calendly, we often get requests for CRM integrations. Because who wants a scheduling tool that’s incompatible with the star of your tech stack? Here’s how you can connect your CRM to Calendly, and how you can use these tools together to save time and land more clients.

1. Salesforce Sales Cloud

Salesforce needs no introduction - it’s synonymous with “CRM” and isn’t shy about marketing itself as the #1 CRM in the world. 

We have a robust native Calendly + Salesforce integration (available on Calendly Teams plans or higher) that can automatically create new leads, contacts, or opportunities in your CRM when you book a Calendly meeting. Once connected, the integration:

  • Lets you schedule Calendly meetings without ever leaving Salesforce

  • Create events or tasks for any object once a meeting is scheduled

  • Map information as custom objects to expedite lead qualification

  • View your upcoming and past sales meetings, and much more

 

2. HubSpot

Hubspot is often associated with marketing, but these days it's mainly positioned as an impressive, easy-to-use CRM platform. Featuring the Sales Hub, the HubSpot CRM platform offers all the tools you need for not only sales, but also marketing, content management, and customer service.

Calendly offers a HubSpot integration that was recently recognized as one of the Top 30 integrations in the HubSpot marketplace. Available for Calendly users on the Professional plan or higher, the HubSpot integration:

  • Creates new leads or contacts in HubSpot once a meeting is scheduled with Calendly

  • Automatically updates Hubspot activities for contacts when a meeting is edited

  • Syncs custom information, such as lead qualification, via Calendly to add to HubSpot records

With HubSpot CRM and the Calendly integration, your sales team can get richer insights and warmer leads, and increase the speed of your sales pipeline. And sales leaders will love the instant updates, insights, and intelligence available that contributes to sales funnel metrics and forecasting.

When you use Calendly to efficiently book sales meetings, make sure none of those new sales contacts slip through the cracks by using the Calendly + ActiveCampaign integration. Available for Calendly users on the Professional plan or higher, the integration accelerates your sales process by instantly creating a contact record in your CRM when a lead books a meeting in Calendly.

When these leads are automatically imported into your ActiveCampaign CRM, it’s incredibly easy to add them to contact lists or segments. That makes it easier to do lead qualification, to identify who is ready to purchase, and who should begin a marketing journey.

  • Pipedrive+Calendly via Outfunnel Like Zapier, you’ll need a Professional or higher Calendly plan to use Outfunnels automations But we highly recommend this integration for a few reasons.
