Hi everyone, This product has been in the works for some time now so I’m super excited to finally release it… The idea behind TARS Meeting Chatbots is simple. When your lead is ready to book a sales call/meeting with you, a friendly chatbot helps them schedule it through a conversation. The bots are integrated with Google Calendar so they only display your available slots (preventing you from getting overbooked) and they automatically send out a Google Calendar event invite to all the attendees so that they don’t forget about the meeting We built this product out of necessity. We were already capturing email leads through our chatbot but found that many would drop off in the inevitably messy email back and forth where we’d try to schedule a time to talk. By adding a native Google Calendar integration into our bots, we can book the appointment right when the lead is giving us their email. The end result has been fewer email threads, a faster sales cycle, and more demo calls. If you run a business that depends on meetings with your clients, we’d be thrilled if you tried out this product and gave us your feedback to make it better. We’d even be willing to build your first meeting chatbot for you. As always, feel free to ask us questions below. Cheers Ish
Much needed. Super cool to see this here on tars.

Great product! It would be cool if you could implement something like Calendly in the bot’s input UI. Any plans?

Hey Shashwat! Thanks for the kind words. We actually tried to build this product with Calendly to begin with, because we use calendly on our website, but we found the API to be a bit too limited for our liking. That being said, we do really like Calendly so we'll definitely revisit an integration soon.
This is super cool, but I don’t use Google Calendar. Are you planning on expanding to outlook and iCal maybe?

Hey @mayank25may! Thanks for the upvote. This product is actually part of a broader push to integrate TARS with popular apps that marketers use. We built Meeting Chatbots with a Google Calendar integration because a lot of our existing users have been requesting it and because we use Google Calendar internally. iCal and Outlook are definitely integrations we are thinking about because they'll enhance the functionality of our meeting chatbots, but at the end of the day it all boils down to user interest. If our users ask for Outlook and iCal we will build it. In fact we're already in the early stages of building an Outlook integration because you aren't the first person who's asked about it :)
