Assistant.to – Schedule meetings within email in seconds

Calendar

CalendarEvery Friday I try to share one of my favourite finds of the week – a web-site, tool or app that has impressed me.

My Friday Favourite this week is Assistant.to – a free tool that enables you to avoid email ping-pong and schedule meetings within email in seconds.

Scheduling Headaches

Assistant.to ScreenshotIf you’ve ever tried to find a mutually convenient time to meet with someone via email, then you’ll know that it often involves email ping-pong trying to find a time and date that suits you both.

While I’d typically suggest using the telephone instead of e-mail for these types of exchanges, Assistant.to gives you the ability to connect to your calendar, quickly select three time slots you are available, and send these as options to your contact. The recipient chooses one of the times that is convenient for them, clicks accept, and the appointment is scheduled within your diary. Simple!

Google Mail and Microsoft Outlook Support

Assistant.to currently works with Google Mail and will shortly be available for Microsoft Outlook too. You can follow Assistant.to on Twitter.

Thanks to James Kimbley of Kimbley IT for the suggestion!
