We all know the hassle it could be to book and appointment with your customer, or even with your old friend to share a cup of coffee, and a good chat. The problem is that you need to check your calendar, he needs to check his, and then find a space in both calendars in the same day and time.
All this leads to back and forth calls or emails to schedule a date and time for the meeting, so, if you have a busy schedule. You may need an assistant, better a free one. Your solution could be Tungle.me
Tungle.me is not a calendar, it does not aim to replace your current calendar, just to enhance it with more features.
In few words, what it does is to sync with your default calendar with may be:
- Google Calendar
- Apple iCal
- Entourage for Mac
- Lotus Notes
- Windows Live
After that I shares your busy/free time in a personalized url, from there and without the need to have a Tungle.me accout, anyone can book and appointment with you. He or She will need to set the subject of the appointment, and two or more possible dates/times for the appointment. You will get and email where you can choose one of the proposed times, or decline the invitation, if you accept it, Tungle.me will then add the appointment to your synced calendar and send an email to the organizer with the time and date you have chosen.
That's it, pretty easy and very, very intuitive.
