Microsoft Garage has just introduced yet another app for the iPhone. The company’s latest app, Invite, aims to make it easier to organize meetings. Here’s how Invite works:
- You suggest times that work for you, and then invite attendees – You can use the app to invite anyone with an email address—even if they are outside your organization.
- They select all the times they can attend – Once you’ve invited your attendees, they receive an email or an app notification if they have Invite installed. Attendees can then choose on the times that work for them, from the app itself or from a browser. They can also see what options work best for other attendees.
- Once everyone has responded, you pick the time that works best – You choose a final date and time whenever you’re ready. Just pick the time that most people can make the meeting and tap Send Calendar Invites to get it on their calendars.
Invite works best for users with Office 365 business or school subscriptions – however, you can use the app with your Outlook.com, Gmail or even Yahoo Mail account. For now, the app is only available in the United States and Canada. It’s also worth noting that Microsoft has stated that the app is “coming soon” to Windows Phone, and Android.
