Overview: What makes Reclaim Scheduling Links unique?

A brief overview of the different ways in which you can use Scheduling Links, and how to get started with them.

Updated over a week ago

Scheduling Links enable you to send links to you and your team's availability, allowing others to book time across one, or many, calendars. There are lots of products out there that let you do this, but Reclaim has a few key differentiators that add a ton of power and control to how you share your availability.

Scheduling Links Overview

Let's take a look at some of the things you can do with Reclaim Scheduling Links, and what makes this feature different than other meeting booking solutions available today.

Advanced prioritization controls

A common issue busy professionals run into is having to move around or delete events from the calendar in order to create room for important meetings you want to book sooner.

Scheduling Links offer an advanced prioritization controls to optimize this process by allowing you to automatically offer up lower-priority events scheduled on your calendar (both other Reclaim smart events, as well as non-Reclaim created events!) as available times for more important meetings.

You can set everything on your calendar to a universal priority from Low-Critical, and if you share a higher-priority Scheduling Link โ€“ it will show lower-priority Tasks, Habits, Smart 1:1s, as well as any non-Reclaim events you have manually turned down the priority for as available times. If a meeting overbooks another lower-priority smart event, Reclaim automatically reschedules it to the next best time. No reshuffling required.

Flexible Durations

It's not always clear how much time someone might want to book with you when you're trying to get a meeting scheduled, and it can be awkward trying to decide for them whether to send a 30-minute link, a 45-minute link, or something else altogether.

With Reclaim, you can add up to three different durations to a single link, which attendees can pick from to decide how much time they need, and how soon they want to meet.

Personalized One-off Links

Sometimes you might want to tailor your Scheduling Link for a specific meeting or attendee. For example, you might want to offer up more times than normal, or use a specific title for the meeting, or use a different time range for you and your co-organizers. No matter the scenario, Reclaim gives you the power to do just that with one-off links.

With personalized one-off links, you can modify any component of an existing link and send it as a one-off to your attendees. You can also do this directly from a variety of extensions and add-ons, including Gmail and Raycast.

Team Links

Sometimes you might need to coordinate time across multiple members of your team. For example, you might have a sales call that involves your product manager, the account executive, and an engineer.

With Reclaim, you can create Team Links that will automatically show the combined availability of multiple teammates, as well as allow each co-organizer to select their unique meeting preferences.

Link Groups

Link Groups allow you to group together similar links into a booking page that will present an array of options to potential attendees.

For example, you might have a selection of links that are specific to your engineering team that you send to potential interview candidates, and you may want them all to live on a specific booking page.

Setting up Scheduling Links for the first time

When you first land on the Scheduling Links page in Reclaim, you'll be prompted to go through a short onboarding where you'll learn a bit about Scheduling Links as well as claim your custom URL.

This is the root URL that will be used for your personal booking page, and you can always change it later as well as add new URLs for Link Groups in the future.

Once you've set up Scheduling Links, you'll get a set of three default links to help you get started. You can modify or delete these however you'd like. Then you'll be landed on your main Scheduling Links interface, which will have actions for adding new Scheduling Links as well as Link Groups.
