Question

Which calendar and scheduling tools do you use in a post-Woven and post-x.ai world? And how can smaller point solutions survive platform competitors?

With the recent shutdowns of Woven calendar and x.ai, scheduling productivity has taken a hit.

Which tools do you swear by? Will calendar and scheduling point solutions continue to get swallowed whole by multi-tooled productivity platforms?

Hi,

I never started using X.AI because I felt something was wrong with the support. They had not a clear roadmap.
You should give a try to https://savvycal.com/

I think it is the best alternative to X.AI, even if it is quite early.
If you do not like it, the good old Acuity do a good job regarding group scheduling and Zapier automation.

I've been using Calendly for more than a year and will speak well of it—amazing how a simple scheduling link thrown into an email ups the professionalism several steps ahead.

They got me to become a paid user because I wanted to integrate more than one calendar and because I wanted my guests to be able to choose from more than one event type. Can't really imagine running my business (independent marketing consulting) without it at this point.

Yo, so the track app has been my life for the past ~8 months. I'm using the mac version but I think they're rolling out a PC version... It's pretty much a calendar with inbuilt scheduling links... thetrackapp.com

I have switched to Vimcal since the very sad demise of Woven. I do not love it as much as Woven, but it's OK. I think people who have switched to SuperHuman for email will probably really like it because it's built using the same kind of keyboard shortcuts, meant to be really fast. I loved the "my time" feature of Woven, and having a Calendly-esque feature built into a Calendar app made total sense. I have resigned myself to having to use multiple services to get to the same user experience.

That's a bummer! What other apps do you use alongside Vimcal?

What's the best to-do list app in 2021?

When you've got too many things to do, how do you keep track of them all? Have you started using a new to-do list app recently, or found an old one is still doing the job well? The last time we di...
