Stop wasting time going back and forth trying to schedule meetings!
Scheduling meetings, particularly with multiple people involved, isn't one of my favorite tasks. It seems to take a ridiculous number of telephone calls and/or emails in order to find a date and time that works for everyone. Sometimes it takes longer to get the meeting scheduled than it does to hold the meeting!
I was recently turned on to a nifty on-line service that makes scheduling MUCH easier. It's called "When Is Good." It's easy to use and it's FREE.
Here's how it works:
When you go to the site, you'll be provided with a grid containing dates and times. You can customize the grid, change time zones, etc. Then you'll click on the dates and times that you're available. You'll receive a link that you can email to all of the potential meeting participants, as well as a results code to view the results.
Meeting participants will click on the linkin the email you've sent them. The link will take them to a page with all of the available meeting dates and times and instruct them to click on all of the dates/times when they are also available.
You can then visit the results page and see when everyone is free.
You also have an option to create an account that will save all of your events in one place.
