Booking meetings

It may seem obvious how to book meetings, but there are easier and harder ways to do it.

Interro-01.gif I am starting this because there are discussions whether it is appropriate to just "book into" someone else's calendar without first confirming, and someone mentioned Doodle.

Meeting invites in Outlook

I think it is entirely appropriate to check someone's availability in Outlook and to send them an invite for a time that appears available. There are some questions whether that is acceptable practice, and some concerns about the practicality of doing it when some people don't use their calendar, or there is a mix between U of M and WRHA calendars. Do PSMs have thoughts on this ?

Doodle

Doodle.com is a service that facilitates booking times with multiple people. Some staff use it, and I think it's a good tool. Are we all on board with using it? If so, is it something we should document here and then fan out to people who may not know about it yet?
