FreeBusy saves you time

Whenever someone checks your FreeBusy page the service will access your calendar, calculate your availability, and display it as a schedule to the requester. If you connected and linked multiple calendars the requester can look up your schedule using any of the email addresses associated with your connected calendars. The service fetches availability data from each calendar in part and produces a unified view. The requester won't be informed that the availability view comes from multiple calendars.

Help us grow the FreeBusy community! Invite your contacts! Together we can eliminate coordination headaches when scheduling meetings.
