Scheduling meetings with multiple people can be a pain. Finding time between a maze of competing schedules is frustrating at best, and Microsoft is trying to make that a little bit easier with a new tool the company released Thursday.
FindTime is a tool from the Microsoft Garage that ties into Outlook and helps people set up meetings with anyone they need to get in touch with. Here’s how it works: Organizers write an email, launch the FindTime add-in from Outlook Online, Outlook 2013 for Windows or Outlook 2016 for Windows, and then select all of their available times for a meeting. After that, the system sends all of the people included on the email a list of available times that they can vote on.
