Propose a New Meeting Time in Google Calendar

Rescheduling in Google Calendar just got easier. Each guest invited to a meeting can propose a new time and the organiser 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 a user is invited to a Calendar event, they can respond “Yes,” “No,” Maybe,” and now, “Propose a new time.”

If calendar access permissions have been granted, guests can see the other attendees' availability side by side, so they can suggest a time that works for everyone.

Guests can then send their time proposal along with an optional message to the organiser, who can accept the proposed time with just one click.
