This is a great question... and somewhat difficult to answer.

Three or four years ago, I'd have said "yes."

Today, with more people understanding and appreciating the value of self-scheduling, I'd say it depends on how you justify the Calendly link.

I'd encourage you to send something like this:

"Does 3pm on Thursday or 10am on Friday work for you? Alternately, if you'd prefer, here's a link to my calendar and you can choose a time that works best with your schedule."
