Are you pulling your hair and gritting your teeth every time scheduling a meeting comes up?
Let's face it, we've all found ourselves tangled a back-and-forth email warzone because everyone's availability is as unpredictable as the weather. And don't get me started when more than a handful of people are involved! High-end scheduling tools seem like overkill, right? Doling out the big bucks for something as straightforward as scheduling? You might as well buy a spaceship to go to the grocery store!
Well, worry not, because we've got a magic wand to wave all your scheduling woes away: our meeting availability poll template! It lets you throw out some date and time options and have everyone pick when they can make it. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
Your trusty template comes with all these fields, easy-as-pie:

- An email (to get back to them, of course)

Want a Gold Star on Meeting Scheduling? Here's How:
You've got to give the power back to the people - give them options and let them tell you when they can make it. This isn't kindergarten; free will exists!
Imagine shooting an open-ended question to 50 people about their schedules. The replies would flood faster than you can yell, "Stop!" Trust me, you don't want that kind of chaos.
Instead, roll out a couple of potential dates and times suitable for you. Throw in a few morning, afternoon, and maybe evening slots for good measure. Variety is the spice of life after all!
Give people a day or two to respond, enough time to make a fair decision. Then you can check the results, do your math, and voila—your ideal meeting time.
Keep in mind, the more the merrier is only true till everyone needs to sync their schedules. Don't stress; you can't please everyone. Make sure to send out notes, minutes, or a recording for those who couldn't join in the fun.
