Appointment Scheduling Handbook

Align People for a Meeting using a Scheduling App

Organizing a meeting online or offline has always been messy, spamming several people with emails just to fix a time that suits all. However, thanks to all the meeting scheduling apps out there the process is much easier now. These apps leverage the benefit of syncing several calendars and automating the process of selecting a time that suits all. However, that can also lead to confusion if someone on the team has not updated their calendars.

Polling system on a scheduling app

There are other ways too, for example, creating a group chat and discussing the best time for everyone on the Zoom app. Although a group chat can be very chaotic if there are a large number of people involved. For such cases, apps like Doodle, Acuity, Vyte, Zvite and Meeting Bird have incorporated the feature of voting polls. The best way to schedule a meeting involving many attendees is to use a Voting Poll, where the organizer selects a few time slots and puts them up for voting. Everyone can see each other’s votes and the highest voted slot is set as the final time for the appointment. Or, you can select any other time as per your requirements.
