The following instructions include how to quickly and easily schedule a meeting with a group of colleagues who are using Google Calendar:

If the other guests have shared their calendar with you, you can use the "Find a time" feature to schedule an event at a time that works for everyone. You can compare up to 20 schedules at one time.

Note: The Find a time feature is available while using a computer and the Google Calendar app for Android.

  1. Open Google Calendar.

  2. Create a new event, or open an existing event (you may need to click Edit event first).

  3. Select the: Find a time tab. If the other guests' calendars are shared with you, you will see their schedules.

  4. Find a time that you works for all your guests' calendar. Use the arrows at the top to navigate between days.

  5. Once you've found a time, click the area within the calendar grid. The time will update at the top of the page.

  6. Select Save.

Note: You can only edit the event if you created the event yourself, or if the event organizer gave guests permission to modify the event.

All-day events: All-day events are shown at the top of the calendar grid. If a guest has an all-day event, they will appear available in the "Find a time" tab unless their event is set to show as Busy. To schedule an all-day event, click the Week button and then click the area at the top of a day column.

For more details be sure to explore the Find a time for my meeting section from a Google Blog post.
