I have discovered a bug. When I have an appointment that runs past or before the 1/2 hour (say 10:15am). On my freebusy.io page, a viewer will see the grey box go past the 10:00am line, however they will still have the blue link for 10:00 allowing them to schedule/request an appointment with me in the 10:00-10:30 slot even though I am busy until 10:15.4 votes
The requested behavior is now implemented and live. If an event “eats” into a 30 min slot by 15 min or more that entire 30 min time slot is shown unavailable.
I cannot find any easy method to remove a calendar/account that has been added to freebusy.io1 vote
This ability already exists in the Account Management page.
This is now completed. We adopted a simple pattern color scheme to denote busy slots and a variant of that pattern scheme to denote tentative. There’s also a tooltip that appears when you hover over with the mouse and which will help differentiate.
Let us know what other else you’d like to see.
I marked it as "busy" on ical(synced to gcal) but 15min later, doesn't reflect on freebusy4 votes
Issues with displaying multi-day events (whether busy or out of office) are now fixed. Please let us know if that’s not the case for you. Thanks!
if the user clicks a time slot in the grid, a meeting invitation gets sent to the calendar owner. This could pop a dialog to include a text comment. The sent invitation could just be an email or an actual ICS invitation.
The popup could include an input field for a PIN code that the calendar owner shares with the user when the URL is shared.1 vote
This feature is now completed. There’s a new “Accept Meetings” page when you are signed in from where you can turn on the ability for guests to book meetings on your calendar.
We debated the PIN suggestion and think that a simpler option would be to have an additional “accept meeting proposals” in addition to “accept meetings”. This latter mode would not create anything on your calendar but merely send you an email notification that the person would like to meet with you.
To make it easy for you to follow through with an actual meeting on the calendar the email will have a link that when you click will add the meeting to your calendar at the proposed time.
Discovered today that if I have added additional calendars in Google Apps (say a coworker) these affect availability. It looks like there may be some consideration for this already by having lighter shading, but overall I believe it looks like the time is not open when in fact it is looking at another's calendar.
IDEA Enable selecting which calendar/calendars affect Free/Busy.
Bravo on the service overall... I'm a big fan. Very cool!1 vote
This feature is now completed and you can pick and choose which calendars FreeBusy takes into consideration from the Account Management page (top right menu).
It would be great if I could show two calendars at the same time. For example, I have a work calendar which is separate from my personal calendar. Right now I believe I need to share each calendar individually to people trying to book me. I'd love to give them a link that shows both. The URL might be something like: http://freebusy.io/User@foo.bar,User@bar.com
This would also be a great way to show different people's calendars at the same time so you can identify common free time. You can imagine all sorts of UX that would simplify this process.
This feature is already implemented. You can link (combine) as many calendars from as many providers as you need to. After signing in with one calendar from the top right menu choose “Link Another Calendar”. All linked calendars will be shown in a unified view independent of which email address people look you up by.
Regarding group scheduling, we are working on that. Thanks for the suggestion.
Can you show FreeBusy availability for a user when scheduling a meeting in Outlook 2010?6 votes
We just launched a simple integration with Oulook and other desktop calendar apps using iCalendar subscriptions. Anyone can subscribe to a FreeBusy page directly from Outlook.
Check out the new “Add To Your Calendar App” buttons on your FreeBusy page.
