an Outlook add-in
Coordinate meetings 10x faster with contacts inside and outside your company
Coordinating a meeting with four people across multiple companies costs $250 in wasted time. Different companies use different calendar systems and it's often not possible to share availability with partners.
FreeBusy connects to everyone's existing calendars. It matches availability using data from each calendar and makes smart suggestions for when to meet. FreeBusy works with all calendar systems, whether corporate, school, or personal.
FreeBusy makes it easy to find a time that works for all, without needing to poll attendees. We overlay availabilities for all meeting attendees so you can pick the time with least conflicts. Coordinating meetings becomes so much easier. Scheduling is instant.
Avoid proposing meeting times blindly, without any context about the attendees. FreeBusy let's you suggest meeting times that work for all attendees. When writing emails, insert links to meeting polls that let the recipient pick from times you already know work for everyone.
Keep your business schedule in Office 365 and your personal appointments in Gmail? You can link together all your calendars (work, school, and personal), and share an unified view of your availability. Once linked, contacts from all linked account will be available in Outlook so you can quickly add attendees from different contact lists.

Let's say John wants to meet with Julie.
Thanks to FreeBusy and overlaying of availabilities, John doesn't have to ask Julie when she's free to meet or offer times when he's free, hoping that she'll be too.
The Pick-A-Time feature of FreeBusy for Outlook knows Julie's availability and shows it on top of John's. This way, John sees the times Julie is busy, so he can propose a time that's likely to work for her.
