Google Calendar’s new RSVP option will let you specify how you want to attend a meeting
Google Calendarinvitations to get new RSVP options.
- It lets you specify how you want to attend a meeting.
- You can choose between attending ‘in a meeting room’ or joining ‘virtually’.
This will help others to identify how you are attending the meeting. The new feature adds a drop-down menu visible when you press the ‘Yes’ button at the bottom of the Google Calendar invitation on the web. The menu will contain two new options — ‘Yes, in a meeting room’ and ‘Yes, joining virtually’.
If you choose to attend the meeting physically in a meeting room, then a door icon will be placed next to your name on the invitations. And if you select the option to join the meeting virtually, a video camera icon will appear next to your name. However, the joining details will not be shared with users on other platforms like Microsoft Outlook.
The feature will first roll out on Google Calendar, and then it will be launched for calendar invitations in Gmail. It will be available to all Google Workspace customers and G Suite Basic and Business users. It has gradually started rolling out to the Rapid Release domain from July 8, 2021, and will begin the rollout to the Scheduled Release domain from July 22, 2021.
