Meeting room scheduling Simplicity

Can we have a better way to schedule meetings.

with the advent of 3.0 we no longer have a "copy meeting details to clipboard"

essentially there are 3 ways to schedule a meeting right now :

1. use the Blue Jeans scheduler ( which requires us to know the email addresses of the people we want to invite instead of using a directory lookup )

Then you have to schedule the same meeting in local calender if a room is booked - essentially you need both open at the same time to ensure you can secure the room at the appropriate time.

Q. Is there any way to link the scheduler to our calendar instance?

2.  Use Calendar to book the whole meeting using the meeting URL : bluejeans.com/meetingid OR copy/paste contents of a template invite

Q can we get the copy/paste link back into 3.0 to help this?

3. use the chrome extension

Q. Can we get this in Safari / Firefox so we can give this option to the rest of the estate.

hidden option 4, does the app integrate with our calender for scheduling AND see available rooms? caveat to that is also on when  the Linux version is released.

Hi Ash,

We do have "copy to clipboard"
option with new UI 3.0 just that it has new name and placement.

Yes but that is still only for scheduled meetings, i cannot get that for personal meeting like we used to, the personal meeting "copy to clipboard" only coppies the URL and not the other details

I see. You are correct we do not have copy to clipboard option for personal meeting with new UI, will forward this feedback to our dev team. 

Thank you,

Hi Ash -

Thank you very much for your comments and feedback.
 

Q. Is there any way to link the scheduler to our calendar instance?

Not at the moment.  My goal is to promote scheduling integrations (Chrome, Safari, and eventually Firefox) because I believe the native calendar to be the best user experience.

Q. Can we get this in Safari / Firefox so we can give this option to the rest of the estate.

We presently have a Safari extension and are exploring one for Firefox. I don't have a timeline yet for the Firefox extension.

Q can we get the copy/paste link back into 3.0 to help this?

Yes, we are implementing a new design that will allow a user to easily copy/paste the meeting link. I still think copying/pasting a link is not an ideal workflow but we will have to keep it for now.




hidden option 4, does the app integrate with our calender for scheduling AND see available rooms? caveat to that is also on when  the Linux version is released.

We are planning on adding scheduling functionality in the desktop app. However, I don't have visibility of whether it will integrate with the calendar yet -- we will explore it.

Thanks,
Simon
