Nobody is actually fond of meetings. So when you’ve reached your fill and decide to rearrange some of those duties, the usual process of trying to find a new meeting time begins. Thankfully, the Google Calendar team has heard your screams of frustration and built a new tool that makes rescheduling meetings much easier.
Starting in two weeks, on August 13th, every guest will be able to put up a new meeting time and attach to that update a message to the organizer to explain themselves. The organizers can then review and allow or reject that new time slot. If the other guests have made their calendars public, the organizer can also see the other attendees’ availability in a new side-by-side view to find a new time.
What’s a bit sketchy here is that this is still mostly a manual feature. To find meeting slots to begin with, Google already employs some of its machine learning smarts to find the best times. This new feature doesn’t seem to employ the same algorithms to proposed dates and times for rescheduled meetings.
