I am a recruiter and tend to book 20+ calls with candidates per week via Outlook. It would be really nice if these candidates could somehow see my available times in my outlook calander on the net and be able to send/propose a meeting time with me. This would save so much of my time becuase the amount of time it takes to go back and forth with them on email booking a time can be a pain. There must be some program out there that allows for someone, external to your company network, to see your free available time and send you a meeting request? Does anyone know of any application out there that would allow for this? If not, it needs to be made!

    BTW, I am aware of how you can do this for small businesses i.e. having everyone install a program to share thier calanders however, I'm looking for something more in the cloud where no one needs to download anything and can simply see my free time in outlook realtime, then book an appointment with me. I am also aware of google calendar but am curious if anyone knows of anything outside of google calander where I don't need to force my candidates to sign up for a google account?

    In order to share your information it has to be stored in a place that all users can see it. It would be a serious security issue if your company allowed anyone outside of a network access to their exchange servers like that. Ergo, you and the folks who want to see your availability have to use some sort of common database or repository that you can upload your information to, then compare. it also needs to interface with their current Outlook software as well. So you are either going to have to post the information onto a webpage that others can see and decide from there or you can all upload your information to a public database that they will have to at least register with.
