Google Calendar

Connect Drift with your calendar to start turning website visits into meetings even faster.

About Google Calendar

Google Calendar is a time-management and scheduling calendar service developed by Google.

The live demo scheduler is fully automated and the lead never has to leave the website. They put in their email address and the chatbot shows them available time slots based on our Google Calendar availability. If you’re managing a larger team, you can also have the bot automatically round robin the leads or assign meetings based on geographic location.

Google Calendar and Drift

With just a few clicks you can integrate your calendar with Drift and start booking meetings 24/7 right in chat conversations, email, and through a personalized scheduling link – all synced to the calendar you already use. Once a calendar is connected, Drift Meetings can read your availability so you never get double booked. You can then personalize your meeting settings, set up meeting types – including group meetings, and start doing much more.

Using Zoom? It’s easy to add Zoom conferencing links to all of your meetings booked through Drift with our Zoom integration.

Use Cases

Take control of your schedule
Set your available hours and time zone so only meetings that align with the criteria can be booked. You can select the days you are available and the times to go along with those days. With time buffer settings, you can build in time to allow you to take a breather and prepare for your next meeting.
Prevent chat interruptions during a meeting
With Drift reading your connected calendar, you’ll automatically be prevented from being routed into a chat during a time when you have a meeting on your calendar. When you stop being busy, you’ll be routed into conversations again.
Send meeting reminders right from Drift
Set the communication cadence about the Drift meetings on your calendar, such as how often and when meeting reminders are set out to guests.
Schedule sales meetings with site visitors 24/7
When your sales team isn’t available to chat, you can still target your best visitors and ABM accounts, welcome them with a personalized message from the right sales rep, and let them instantly schedule a sales meeting – any time of day (or night).
Use the calendar drop to book more meetings on your calendar
The Calendar drop can be used in a variety of ways, including on your Drift Profile, Drop in Live Chat, and Automatic Drop from Playbooks.
