When you are hosting a meeting, Microsoft Outlook Calendar tools can assist you with selecting the best time. After you create a new meeting invitation and add attendees, check the Scheduling Assistant to view a grid of when your attendees are free or busy. You can also use this feature to see when meeting rooms are available and reserve space for your meeting. The Room Finder tool suggests the best times for your meeting based on when most attendees are available.

Now UChicago staff have the ability to schedule meetings and view free and busy status for staff from The University of Chicago Medicine and Booth School of Business. Learn more about scheduling meetings in Outlook.
