Hello Heidi,
We have been in a multi-year conversation with Calendly. Calendly does have
some barriers in some areas, but is getting closer to accessible (were the
closest we could find), and have committed to full accessibility compliance
by December.

We have been piloting the use in the meantime, and while screenreader
accessibility on the staff set-up side has some issues, the cognitive and
time management accessibility (our more common access barriers for students
and staff) have been significant.
