What's your favorite thing about Woven so far?

I like their scheduling options and ability to set different availabilities for different scheduling links. Scheduling one-on-one meetings, group meetings, and having a generic anyone-can-book link like Calendly.

They have smart meeting creation suggestions based on past meetings, like G Cal has.

The Template feature is handy if you regularly meet with different people/ clients. The Analytics feature I haven't gotten much utility from as I use a time tracker, but perhaps that would be an added bonus as well.

Fantastical is the first app that comes to mind when I think of a "nicely designed" calendar—I don't use it heavily, but I do like that it lives in the menubar and that it can turn a sentence like Meet Bob for lunch tuesday at 12:30 into an event.

What's not worked well about Fantastical lately for you? And are you using the newer subscription version right now?

Another cool app I'd used for a bit is Agenda—it's a notes app crossed with a calendar app, great for keeping track of meeting details and remembering what to talk about on calls, though with fewer scheduling features.

Other great options include Woven as mentioned, Clockwise for a team calendar, and if you use Superhuman, its new calendar tools are pretty cool (albeit basic).

Fantastical seems really buggy on Big Sur. I can't get it to run at this point.

I'm using VimCal, which is attempting to be the "superhuman" of calendars. It's pretty good - worth looking at.

Oh wow that looks so nice—wouldn't have expected an app with vim in its name to have such a well designed UI. Would have expected a terminal app, if anything!

Has anyone had the chance to try out daybridge? 👀

Not sure I've come across Daybridge before—that does look nice, almost like a kanban board crossed with a calendar!

I use Woven because I have multiple accounts to manage in one place. I love the scheduling links and templates but I still need to work my way for creating events from other apps (mail & chats)

Ah nice, have you found Woven's scheduling links to work as well as Calendly's?
