Office 365: Scheduling Poll (formerly FindTime) for Outlook
- Service:Email, Office 365
FindTime is now Scheduling Poll. Scheduling Poll is a feature in Outlook for scheduling meetings. The organizer can send multiple time options through FindTime and minimize the back-and-forth emails in scheduling.
How to Use Scheduling Poll
Find the best times - Scheduling Poll shows what days and times work the best for you and the attendees when available using free/busy data
All attendees vote - Propose your selected times to all attendees and allow everyone to vote and quickly come to a consensus
...and you’re done! - Scheduling Poll sends out the meeting invite on your behalf

You can also chat with other Office 365 users at UCSF on the Office 365 Team (open to anyone at UCSF - use the join code 7me7twx).
- Do recipients also need to have Scheduling Poll installed?
Nope! Your friends and colleagues only need an email address and Internet access in order to be a recipient. You are certainly welcome to spread the love and invite them to install Scheduling Poll, however, and become an organizer!
- Can I send a test invite?
Definitely! Just add a second personal email address to the To: or Cc: line and you're in business!
- Can I send invites to people who don’t use Office 365?
Yes! You can send a Scheduling Poll invite to anyone with an email address. Only organizers are required to be on Office 365.
