Google is working on a way to make the reschedule of meetings on Calendar pretty easy with a new feature that it has added which gives participants the opportunity to suggest an alternative time period right within the app. After they have made their suggestions, the organizer of the meeting is then given the option to review them and decide whether he accepts it or not. The availability window of every person who is to attend will be displayed in a side-by-side view as long as their calendars are shared with co-workers and thus make it simpler to suggest times that will suit the convenience of everyone’s schedules.
As it was done usually, almost all meeting time reshuffling had to be done in person, or over the email or the chat apps of the company. What Google aims to achieve is a reduction of those many conversations by providing users with a program that supports elusive office communications within the G Suite apps.
According to the reports reaching us from our sources, a part of this new Calendar feature will also give users the opportunity to add an optional message to the suggestions they make in order to provide some context to back up the rescheduling. The blog post of Google had this to say about the feature they added, “This allows for richer communication between attendees, reduces time spent on meeting practicalities, and makes meetings more productive with key stakeholders in attendance.”
From the reports our sources provided us, the feature is already available for all web users of the Google Calendar since Monday last week. however, it is not yet available on mobile, our sources say that it should be available by the 13th of August. The company also added that the rescheduling feature should be able to work across various domains and even with Microsoft Exchange.
