Alongside some other Cortana improvements Microsoft has recently announced, the company has also unveiled Calendar.help — a service that leverages the digital assistant to help you schedule meetings. Rather than relying on a tedious back-and-forth with multiple co-workers to set up a meeting, Calendar.help uses Cortana to arrange meetings for you. The service was, in part, spawned by technology acquired from Genee — a startup Microsoft acquired in August.
To use Calendar.help, you'll first have to sign up for the preview waitlist at the official site with your work email. Once you're in, using the service is relatively easy: simply add Cortana to the Cc: line on an email. In the body of the email, you'll want to specify the length of the meeting, the timing and the location. Afterwards, Cortana does all of the dirty work. Microsoft explains:
After everything is confirmed, Cortana will then create a calendar event and send an invite to everyone involved. Overall, this is pretty impressive if you need to schedule a lot of meetings and are struggling to find the time. If you're interested in checking the service out, you can head to Calendar.help now and sign up for the preview!
