When you’re trying to set up a meeting with someone who’s as busy as you, it’s tempting to just flop open your datebook and say “pick a time when I’m free”. MeetWith.Me lets you do that while keeping your appointment details private.
This free web service hooks into your online or computer-based calendar and constructs a calendar that denotes what times of day you’re busy without saying why. Registration is fast and requires only an email address for verification. Once your account is set up, MeetWtihMe connects with one of several different calendars including Outlook, iCal, Google Calendar and Yahoo.
MeetWith.Me assigns you your very own link that displays a public calendar detailing what blocks of time you have free and available. As you update your personal calendar, MeetWith.Me automatically updates your public page as well.
If you want to be proactive in setting up a meeting, the service also allows you to email to your co-workers a list of up to the five best dates and times that work for you so they can schedule accordingly. Respondents don’t need to sign up to answer, and MeetWithMe automatically tracks responses and lets you send reminders to anyone who hasn’t replied.
We’ve highlighted other solid meeting schedulers, like TimeToMeet, but MeetWith.Me tickles our fancy for its drop-dead simplicity and the fact that respondents don’t need to sign up for anything to see when you’re busy. Got a favourite tool for scheduling your meetings? Let us know in the comments.
