Google Calendar is a great tool if you’re looking to schedule a meeting, but what if you needed to reschedule said meeting? For those who rely on Google Calendar to keep them up to date with their meetings, Google has introduced a new update that will make rescheduling meetings a lot easier.

According to Google, “Rescheduling in Google Calendar just got easier. We’re introducing a new feature that enables more efficient meeting scheduling. Now, each guest invited to a meeting can propose a new time and the organizer can easily review and accept time proposals. This allows for richer communication between attendees, reduces time spent on meeting practicalities, and makes meetings more productive with key stakeholders in attendance.”

When users are invited to a Calendar event, in addition to choosing “Yes”, “No”, or “Maybe”, they will now have a new option which is, “Propose a new time”. This means that if a user is invited to a meeting on a day that they’re busy, they can click that option to choose a new time and date.

Assuming that permissions have also been granted to users, they will be able to see the availability of other attendees which means that the user can then try to pick a new time and date that suits everyone. When a new time has been proposed, it will then be sent to the organizer who can accept it with a single click. The changes have yet to be rolled out and according to Google, it should be available come 13th August.
