So many of us are collaborating with many time zones, that handy tools to help us set a meeting are so very useful.
I cannot remember the name of a site that “someone” mentioned recently — so I looked around and found Doodle. You go in and enter the days and time slots that you can do the meeting — pick 4-5 days and several time slots — then, e-mail it to others, including yourself.
Then, they can fill out a poll and state which times they can attend. You are e-mailed when others fill out the poll. (Don't forget to fill it out yourself.) Then, you are able to see when you can have the meeting.
IT is a very simple interface and you don't “sign up” literally — it doesn't support time zone conversions, however, it is a pretty simple little tool.
There is another out there right now that I think is flashier and I've seen it but I cannot remember it. PLEASE PLEASE let me know!
Do you want to come to a meeting– Fill out the Doodle!
To see how it works — if you would like to attend a session on working with Google Presentations as we all go in and “rehash” it — look at it, fine tune the presentation, then follow this link and fill out when you can attend. I'll look at the schedule and let you know about a time that will work for as many as possible.
