Google launches feature in Calendar to make rescheduling meetings...

Google has been working a lot to make its products as user friendly as possible. The company has been working on overall design for a clean interface across its G Suite services as well as working progressively to make Android OS light and easy to use. In a latest update, the Mountain View-based company has introduced a new feature that will let people reschedule a meeting through Google Calendar more efficiently than before. The feature will essentially cut the needless chatter and confusion while rescheduling a meeting.

“We’re introducing a new feature that enables more efficient meeting scheduling. Now, each guest invited to a meeting can propose a new time and the organizer can easily review and accept time proposals. This allows for richer communication between attendees, reduces time spent on meeting practicalities, and makes meetings more productive with key stakeholders in attendance,” Google announced on its G Suite Updates page, which is an official feed from the G Suite team that provides essential information about new features and improvements for G Suite customers.

When users are invited to a Calendar event, they can respond ‘Yes,’ ‘No,’ ‘Maybe,’ and now, ‘Propose a new time.’ If calendar access permissions have been granted, guests can see the other attendees' availability side by side, so they can suggest a time that works for everyone. “Guests can then send their time proposal along with an optional message to the organizer, who can accept the proposed time with just one click,” Google said.

This feature works across domains and with Microsoft Exchange. Guests can send their proposals to organisers using Exchange. The company said that the feature is now available on the web and will be coming to mobile on August 13.
