BatchBook launches easy scheduling with Tungle

Another week and another integration that we think you are going to love. Tungle is a very cool service that eases the problems caused by trying to scheduling meetings on busy calendars. Coordinating meetings with others, as well a letting others know your availability, has never been easier thanks to Tungle.

BatchBook is excited to launch the first step in our integration with Tungle via the Tungle scheduling widget. After you turn it on via the Sync and Integrations page, you will see a Tungle link at the bottom of the contact information section:

Just click the ‘Schedule a meeting with me via Tungle’ and we use the primary address to look up the contacts calendar on Tungle. If we find a match, you’ll be able to schedule a meeting when that contact has free time. If they are not already a user, they will be invited to join Tungle and can accept your meeting via email. Really quick and easy to create meetings with anyone in your BatchBook account.

This integration is off by default but just head into your Sync & Integrations section to turn it on for all contacts.

This is just the first step in our relationship with Tungle. Currently, we’re not saving the meeting to BatchBook but are working with Tungle to find the best way to make that happen. Look for this feature to be added soon.

We’re really happy with this integration and we hope our users love it as well. Tungle is a great product and we are pleased to bring them into the BatchBook partner family.

  • Sean,
    Great post!
    We’re equally excited by this partnership and look forward to deeper integration in the near term. 1+1=3!

    I’m in the beginner phase of my use of BatchBook, and I already use Tungle, so this is a nice addition! Thanks.

  • Robb says:

      Hey Robb,

      What part in the process is tripping you up? Are you able to see the link at the bottom of the contact information section? If there is no email address on the record it will not show up.

      Let me know and I can try and get a screencast going for you.

    ok..got it working. the sync thingy wasnt working quite well and once i paged through a couple contacts and went back…voila….

    thanks

  • Robb says:

    oh and while im at it….i probably should take this opportunity to add my 15cents again for another sync option of send our cards. I would love to send my greeting cards to folks using batch book…..Im sure my budget would go up for sure.

  • sa says:

    Yes! My two FAVORITE apps together!

  • Richard says:

    Another useful application which accomplishes similar results is http://www.timebridge.com – that would be another mashup of value to BatchBook users that already use it.

  • Wishlist… BB integration to SendOutCards… great idea… they are probably a difficult app to integrate with but what a great company; I use them for business and personal… imagine having a birthday field in a supertag and then automatically sending out a card… or adding a contact and automatically sending a ‘hello’ card… anyway… just a thought!

    Congrats on this recent improvement, but still hoping for improved (two-way) Mailchimp integration.

    E-mail is our primary communication mechanism with our clients and until we can sync custom fields from Batchbook to Mailchimp (and hopefully pull back statistical data from Mailchimp) our uses for Batchbook are somewhat limited.

  • Darrin says:

    I activated Tungle via integration tab but not seeing the tungle link in the contact list as shown by the screenshot. Is there something else I need to do?

  • Are we any closer to Batchbook events being used to screen out Tungle availability? Or did I mess the memo?

    • Hi George – was checking on this one for you. Tungle’s API doesn’t allow for that at this time, but if that changes that would be a cool add. Stay tuned, we will indeed post a memo of some sort as our integration with the Tungle API matures/progresses!
