Share availabilities

Coordinating a time to meet often ends up in a message ping-pong that takes forever. And just sending over a Calendly link might be weird in some instances. With Cron “Share availabilities”, you shortcut the message ping-pong.

Simply press S to enter the “Share availabilities” mode and copy available time slots from your calendar to email and messages in seconds. Once you have experienced it, there’s no going back. The shared holds remain on your calendar alongside your regular events.

You can set a title, duration, recipient time zone, and even conferencing. Once a time is confirmed, simply click on the hold and select “Create event from hold” from the ⋯ menu. The hold will turn into an event, auto-create the conferencing link, and free up all the other holds from this group.

If you want to offer the recipient to pick a time within one of the windows you’ve sent them themselves, you can just toggle on the “Scheduling link” to include a personalized scheduling page. When the recipient picks a slot from the meet page, the meeting appears on your calendar, and the holds simultaneously disappear. It’s a really powerful feature.
