Scheduler video call links are generated after the invitee has confirmed a meeting slot on Scheduler.  

How will it work?

  • Automatic video call links will soon not be just for manually created activities anymore, they're around the corner for Scheduler-generated activities too!
  • Have both Zoom and Microsoft Teams integration in Pipedrive? No problem, you still get to pick.
  • Using Calendar Sync? The video call meeting links will be embedded in the calendar invites (Google or Microsoft Outlook).
     

For whom?

All plans, all users. Stay tuned to Research and Beta Testing announcements soon. 😉

 

What's next?

Integrating Google Hangouts into Activities and Scheduler.

    Great step forward - I still have few notes for improvements. I often want to schedule meeting with someone I have already in pipedrive. So there is a process - Hey, lets have a call, pick a slot. 

    In this case, you do not want to bother other person with filling name and email - you already know him, he knows you - you want to have it really simple - person picks the date, confirmation links will come (with or without a TC link). 

    I don't need any additional info about person, just match by email (or in the first part it is fine to create a calendar event/activity with person and I will match it manually to person/deal in pipedrive) and make it as much smooth for my client as possible, I just want to leverage the necessity to find an ideal time for call. I am even optimistic, that it must be simple to take the info from person detail in pipedrive and put it into scheduler, when I write an email directly in person detail info.

    I have checked and validated, that you cannot pass url variables to the form, which is a shame and it is kind of standard thing for personalised campaigns. 

    I think this might be a nice improvement to scheduler.

    Hi @Martin Pecha , I've passed on your suggestion to the feature PM. I can't promise anything but thank you for your use case, I'm sure it's not that rare :)

    Any plan to add RingCentral as one of the options, along with Teams, Zoom and Google Hangouts?

    This already works if you use webex on your domain, just type @webex or @meet in the location field and the server will populate the meeting link info for you.

    @Jeffrey Dromeshauser Currently there are no direct plans for it but the team noted down your suggestion for when they'll work on updates again. Tagging @Vincent Jyrwa for visibility :)

    @Inês Batata Thanks so much.  Would love it as I use Scheduler a ton and I prefer RingCentral to Teams currently.
