To schedule company meetings is a very tough task now a days. It is very hard to manage the time slot for all the people who have to attend the meeting. Google has launched a new Google Calendar Labs for this problem. This smart Calendar is called the Smart Rescheduler that brings some search smarts to the problem. The Product Manager Of Google Calendar Cyrus Mistry says, all the Google apps customers got it yesterday night. We think it is just like we are giving every employee their own administrative assistant.
The person who wants to schedule the meeting , he just has to enter the names of the participants , duration of the meeting and the date of the meeting when it has to held. The smart rescheduler then starts its work it goes out and looks at every one calendar to see when he is free then it takes into account different time zones and other commitments on their calendars (in order for this to work, all the meeting attendees must share their calendars with Google Calendar).
It is possible that at a point when it starts process someone has a conflict. At this point the Rescheduler looks at all the soft constraints and actually ranks the best meeting times. Different attendees can have different priorities so that the meeting is set around according to their schedule. Firstly, soft constraints are taken into account like partial schedule overlaps, times blocked with no other attendees, meetings where someone’s been invited but hasn’t yet accepted or meetings organized by that person. These factors often indicate a schedule that can be altered.
