In the fast-paced world of professional life, effective time management is crucial. Calendrz, a powerful calendar management platform, offers users the flexibility to streamline their schedules and optimize productivity. In this blog post, we’ll explore two different approaches to managing meeting requests using Calendrz, each catering to unique preferences and working styles.
Blocking Time Across All Calendars: The Proactive Approach
One strategy to manage meeting requests is to immediately block the proposed time across all your calendars when a meeting request lands in any of your calendar accounts. This proactive approach ensures that you avoid calendar conflicts, giving you a clear picture of your availability.
Calendrz simplifies this process by allowing users to set a specific configuration in the “New meetings un-answered yet” setting. By selecting “Block time” you instruct Calendrz to mark any unconfirmed meeting requests as busy time across all your calendars. This is especially beneficial for users who prefer to maintain a structured and organized schedule, reducing the likelihood of overcommitting.
It’s worth noting that this setting is available to users on certain paid tiers, providing an advanced level of control over their calendar management. For users on the FREE tier, these unconfirmed meetings default to “free time”, allowing for greater flexibility but with less granular control.
Considering Meetings as “Not Attending”: The Thoughtful Approach
Alternatively, users can adopt a more thoughtful approach by initially considering meeting requests as “not attending” until they decide to accept the invitation. In this scenario, Calendrz functions as a strategic ally, allowing users to preview their schedule and identify potential conflicts before committing to the meeting.
The “New meetings un-answered yet” setting, when set to “Ignore” aligns with this approach. Until a meeting request is accepted, Calendrz treats the time slot as available. This provides users with the opportunity to assess their existing commitments and, if necessary, propose an alternative date or time to the meeting organizer.
Calendrz empowers users with versatile time management options, catering to different preferences and working styles. Whether you choose to block time across all calendars immediately or take a more contemplative approach by considering meetings as “not attending” until confirmed, Calendrz’s user-friendly interface and customizable settings make it a valuable tool for professionals.
