Save time with an easier way to schedule meetings in Google Calendar

People-first scheduling makes it quick and easy to find meeting times with your colleagues. You can add rooms, a location, a video conference and add a meeting description without having to click into “More options.”

When creating a new meeting in Calendar, you’ll now be able to do the following:

  • Peek at calendars and automatically add guests: Now, when you add a calendar in the Meet with ...“Search for people” box, you can temporarily view coworkers’ calendars. Creating a new event then automatically adds those people as guests to your meeting and will sometimes even suggest a title for the meeting.

  • More fields in the creation pop-up dialog: The Guests, Rooms, Location, Conferencing, and Description fields are now editable directly in the meeting creation pop-up dialog. Once you add your coworkers’ calendars, they’ll load right in the background, making it even easier and faster to find an available time for everyone.
