Account type: US based RC Office with RC Meeting
A brief description of the business: executive search firm
Feature being requested: Acuity Scheduling and Calendly are both very popular live calendars that allow customers to click online links on web site or via email to schedule a time to speak and submit short forms of information to prepare for a meeting. We use Acuity as more robust options than Calendly. Right now, someone schedules a time on my live Acuity calendar and then if I want an online meeting I must schedule it in RC Meeting forcing two occurrences at the same time on both the customer calendar and my calendar, which is of course confusing to customers.
By the way, Acuity already has GotoWebinar, Join Me, and Zoom. Of course, it’s simply asking to log in to Zoom to get the API Key and API secret key. But here’s the thing – RC Meeting is just a branded Zoom, so seems like it would be very easy to include RC Meeting on Acuity Scheduling integration along with those competitors.
Of course, in Zapier, RC Meeting can connect with Calendly, but not to Acuity. As you well know, a direct integration like Zoom, GotoWebinar, and Join Me already have with Acuity is much better than Zapier.
As RC Meeting is a rebranded Zoom, seems it would be easy to integrate as Acuity already has the API for the Zoom integration and it would simply be editing a small portion of the API for RC Meeting.
I have to imagine with the growth of videoconferencing and live calendars to book times, this would be something that loads of companies, whether interfacing with existing or potential customers, or in a customer support function, would love to be able to do.Dropping Acuity to switch to Calendly would be like dropping RC Meeting to go to Join me – just not a good option for any sales related appointments.
