6. At the time of your meeting both you and your attendee will be connected on your embedded instance of Zipcan. Because this is a single room, you will not need to approve callers, everyone will automatically come into the same room.

Tip: Calendly has so many other great features and options. For example, you could require payment for booking time with you. Add this calendar to your website and your customers can book paid time with you, and chat directly with you on your website!
