Scheduling Poll

Scheduling Poll is a Microsoft Outlook add-in tool used to propose meeting times and find what time best works for everyone. 

  1. Find the best times: Scheduling Poll shows what days and times work the best for you and the attendees when available using free/busy data.
  2. All attendees vote: Propose your selected times to all attendees and allow everyone to vote and quickly come to a consensus.
  3. ...and you’re done! Scheduling Poll sends out the meeting invite on your behalf.
