Let chatters book meetings using the Calendly app
The Calendly App allows chatters to book meetings through your Calendly account from within your bot. Events are sent directly to your Calendar system, and confirmations are sent to the chatter. You must already have a Calendly account to use this app.
This feature may not be included with your organization's subscription package. For more information, see Ada's Pricing page, or contact your Ada team.
