How to insert calendar availability into an email

Overview

Using Front Calendar, you can insert your calendar availability directly into emails to allow recipients to book a meeting with a single click.

Instructions

Step 1

Open the Calendar plugin from the sidebar. If you haven't already, sign in with your Google or Office 365 account. Click "Insert Meeting Times". A popup will open that displays your calendar.

Step 2

Mark any times that you're available for by clicking and dragging on regions of the calendar (for example, 2pm-4pm on Thursday). Use the sidebar on the left to optionally customize the meeting topic, duration, location, and more.

Step 3

Click the blue "Insert Meeting Slots" button and close the popup. You'll now be prompted to copy the meeting slots and paste them into your email. Before copying, use the list of settings to customize the Style (Grid or Plaintext), Timezone, and Time Format.

Note that if meeting slots show up as plaintext without links when you paste them, you likely have the "Paste as text" option turned on in your Front settings.

When a recipient receives your email and taps a meeting slot, the meeting will be booked instantly and invitations will be sent to all attendees.

Lastly, after sending calendar slots, you can change or update that availability my going to "My Scheduling Links" section of the calendar and unchecking "Hide one-time scheduling links."
