I am looking for a good product that will allow people to schedule appointments online by linking to a calendar which currently is in outlook.  

After the appointment is scheduled an welcome email would be sent out with additional instructions and an attachment.

Timetrade does not appear to allow an email send out after the appointment is scheduled.

Unless I misunderstand, it does.  It sends confirmation emails to both parties (the sales rep and the requester).

That being said, if you want a bounceback email automatically sent out with an attachment, not sure if it will do that.

I've never used it, and probably won't.  I'm leery of SaaS online solutions (especially when it comes to sales/marketing tech), as they generally overmarket and underperform.

However, if you used timetrade, for example, first they have an integration API.

Second, I'm sure even if you don't go Enterprise, there is some boilerplate to their emails that you can latch on to and then write a VBA task for Outlook that fires off the email.  Not elegant...but...it would work.

Or, another option is to capture the email first, and toss it into a system you control, then pass them to the "form" for integration.  The end user wouldn't know the difference, and from there you'd be able to kick off a job/trigger that would send the email you required.

I  see I most have missed hitting submit for my last comment.  The email I create has an attachment which would mean I would have to capture the email from timetrade to modify it.  I had scheduled a sales call with time trade and no one called at the appointed time.
