Exciting news for Google Workspace users: Google is rolling out a new appointment scheduling feature for select Google Workspace editions as we speak.

The new Google Calendar appointment scheduler makes it easier than ever to share your availability with external prospects, clients and partners via a booking page. No more playing email tag to find the best time to meet.

Here’s a peek at the experience:

And the best part: Google’s new feature works seamlessly with Copper. Scheduled meetings automatically sync to the Copper contact’s Person record. This way, all of your meetings — even the ones a contact has booked themselves — are tracked. No touch point gets left behind.

To get started, open Google Calendar and click the “Create +” button. Select “Appointment schedule” from the list, and follow the steps from there.

How does the Google Calendar appointment scheduler work with Copper?

The new appointment scheduler in Google Calendar is incredibly convenient for Copper users since Copper already syncs natively with Google Calendar. The functionality enables any meetings scheduled with a Copper contact using the appointment scheduler to automatically appear on their contact record.

Save more time with a “Book meeting” email template

Ditch the extra work of copying and pasting your booking link into individual emails manually. Instead, create a new email template in Copper that lets you easily add a meeting invite and scheduling link to your outgoing messages in Gmail or in the Copper email composer.

Which Google Workspace plans can access the appointment scheduler?

This feature is available to users on a Google Workspace Business Standard plan or higher, in addition to Education Fundamentals, Education Standard, Education Plus, the Teaching and Learning Upgrade, and Nonprofits customers. The following plan types are not currently eligible for the Google Calendar appointment scheduling feature:

  • Free Gmail personal accounts
  • Free Google Workspace Essentials
  • Google Workspace Business Starter
  • Google Workspace Frontline
  • Legacy G Suite Basic or Business customers that have not transitioned to a new Google Workspace plan

For companies that aren’t eligible for Google Calendar appointment scheduling, we suggest exploring Calendly or Calendar Hero as alternatives. Both offer free versions, automatic syncing with Copper and more in-depth integrations if needed.
