Team availability visualization
April 26, 2021
Remeet schedules meets based on the availability of participants, and there’s a possibility that some combinations of people may not have common all-meets hours. In those situations, you’ll see something like this:
Now you can click on “Check availability” and see the detailed availability of all the participants. You will see when every person is freely available, busy with urgent meets, or blocked by conflicting events scheduled outside of Remeet.
Now that you know why it can’t be scheduled, there a few possible actions:
- The most obvious: invite a missing person to one of the all-meets
- Make one of the people optional and allow them to participate asynchronously
- Split this meet into two with each of the participants
You can also see the availability for the whole team at a glance by expanding the existing team availability widget:
Here’s how the complete team availability view for the current week may look like:
You can use next/prev to see the team’s availability for the following weeks:
While Remeet’s dynamic scheduler saves you from the manual labor required to juggling meetings, sometimes you may have to intervene, and we hope this new functionality made it easier for you to do so.
