What happens when your office uses a scheduling program that doesn’t sync with your preexisting social calendar? All too often, you end up with double-bookings that need to be cancelled and time zone mistakes that cause cross-country calls to go unanswered. Thankfully, the creators behind Tungle.me have found a way to make all those issues a relic of the past, by introducing an online scheduling system that syncs with other web-based calendars including Microsoft Outlook, Apple iCal, Google Calendar, and others.
To start scheduling meetings with Tungle.me, sign up for an account and embed a Tungle.me link in your email signature. Rather than going back and forth with a client to find a meeting time that’s right for you both, simply send an email with information about what you’d like to discuss and direct him to click on the Tungle.me link at the bottom of the note to set up a time to talk. Your client will be taken to your Tungle.me scheduling page, where he can see the times when you’re available. In three short steps, he can input his personal information and pick a handful of times that work for him. Tungle.me will turn around and send you an email invitation listing the various times your client has selected for the meeting, and you can then choose one of those times and confirm the appointment.
When the meeting is confirmed, your client will receive a final email from Tungle.me letting him know the meeting is on. The information will then be automatically added to all of your other online calendars. The synching with Tungle.me goes two ways, which means that as events are added to your others calendar, those time slots will disappear from your Tungle.me schedule. For busy professionals, Tungle.me is an amazing application that can decrease the time you spend scheduling your meetings and add hours back to your life.
