3 min read

 

Tip

Refer to this article for detailed information on using the Book Me feature in RG Email Sidebar for Salesforce and Gmail

 

The Book Me (Share Calendar Availability) function allows sharing available periods based on your Google calendar data with your business contacts to schedule a meeting for a time slot convenient for all parties. The rendered availability table with available time slots is generated and sent to the recipient(s) via a Book Me URL.

If a recipient of the generated Book Me link notifies you that the table displays a wrong time, to resolve the issue you should check your time zone settings; this issue may occur due to the discrepancies between your actual time zone and one set in MS Outlook.

Important

The sent Book Me link is not updated automatically you change the time zone. After adjusting the time zone settings, you should invalidate the previously sent Book Me Link that displayed a wrong time and create a new Book Me link for the recipient(s).
