Google has released a new ‘Find a Time’ feature for their Google Calendar app for Android, the features is designed to make it easier for you to schedule meetings.
The new feature will work if your are using the Google Apps for Work or Edu and it will suggest times for your meetings when you are available and also when the other people who you want to tend the meeting are available.
It does this by scanning your calendar for available times, these are then cross referenced with your colleagues to see when they are available.
With a single tap, “Find a time” helps you find meeting times that work for everyone—even if they’re in different time zones—based on their availability and the times they usually have meetings. If there are no times that work, Calendar will look at which conflicting meetings can most easily be rescheduled. Designed specifically for organizations where sharing your calendar with colleagues is the norm, here’s how it works:
“Find a time” makes suggestions, but you’re still in control. You can tap to see everyone’s schedule at a glance—perfect for making sure the timing works for all. And if you manage someone else’s calendar, you can use the feature to schedule meetings on their behalf as well. Download Google Calendar for Android to get easy, on-the-go scheduling. And yes, we’re also working on bringing “Find a time” to iPhone, as well as easier ways to schedule on the web.
It certainly sounds like a really useful feature and could make it a lot easier to schedule meeting when all of the people you want to meet with will be available.
