Home » Calendar.help arranges your meetings through Cortana

Microsoft is known to offer a large variety of tools and services that facilitate both important corporate events and processes. Now, the Windows developer is introducing a new way to ease the work of business-orientated individuals.

Recently, Microsoft announced a series of updates and new features for its digital voice assistant, Cortana. One of the new features is Calendar.help. This feature isn’t a Cortana feature, per se, but rather a tool that taps into the functionality of Cortana to improve productivity in the workplace.

Calendar.help speeds up the process of scheduling meetings by completely skipping the inconvenient part which requires a lot of downtime and feedback-styled communication with co-workers. With the new Cortana-ready function, meetings are set considerably faster.

Now that you know about the existence of this neat feature, you’ll probably want to know how to use it. It’s actually very simple to get it going, with just a few simple steps to take into consideration. The whole thing is done through email, so it’s best if you use your work email.

Once you decide you want to set up a meeting, simply create a new email and set Cortana as the email CC. The next step just requires you to write down the details of the meeting. The email will contain the meeting length and where you want the meeting to take place. Last but not least, the time the meeting starts has to be included. Cortana will take over and make sure the people involved are notified and the meeting is brought to everyone’s attention.

Cortana will proceed by keeping a constant feedback line with everyone invited to the meeting until everyone agrees upon specific details. If you want to use the feature right away, you’ll need to sign up to Microsoft’s Preview program.
