Google Calendar adds “Find a time” for new events

The who edit event page has been revamped, but the big addition is the tight integration of the meeting scheduler feature.  If you can persuade all your coworkers to use Google Calendar, your job of scheduling a one-off meeting is going to be simpler.  Its not clear (to me) which of a person’s calendars the scheduler will take into account to determine availability, but requests have popped up to add a settings option that allows any subscribed calendar to be considered.

The other new addition is the “find a time” feature, which appears as a new tab on the event page. Here’s how GoogleGoogleGoogle explains the new feature:

“When your friends or coworkers give you permission to see their calendars, you can click this tab to see a preview of their schedules and hover over their events to see what conflicts they might have.”

Today’s update is a set of simple but useful additions to Google’s popular schedule-managing product. The “find a time” feature is especially useful for companies or organizations using Google Apps on a regular basis.
