Introduction to Appointly – Appointments Module for Perfex CRM

Appointly is a versatile appointment scheduling module seamlessly integrated into Perfex CRM. It’s perfect for any appointment type and features easy integration with external forms across multiple websites. Manage appointments, add staff as attendees, set subjects, descriptions, dates, and times effortlessly.

The module allows for direct synchronization with Google Calendar and Outlook Calendar. Individual users can manage appointments in both calendars—create, update, or delete events right from the CRM.

Appointly offers the flexibility to include various types of attendees: internal contacts, external contacts, or leads. With a simple, user-friendly design, the module supports Email and SMS Notifications, appointment approval, cancellation, and completion confirmations.

The unique Callback feature in Appointly lets clients request callbacks, catering to international clientele. Admins or designated assignees can manage and take notes for these callbacks. The feature is toggleable to suit your needs.

Starting from version 1.1.4, Appointly also supports Custom Fields, Email Tracking, and Live Notifications, and introduces a feedback system for appointments.
