Add Connect4 meetings directly to your calendar
We’ve released an important update to the way meetings are scheduled, designed to make booking meetings in Connect4 even easier.
Previously, the Connect4 platform would send out separate calendar invites to each pod member. This worked well, but didn’t allow the event organiser to track who had accepted the meeting. It could also get a little messy if you wanted to change the meeting time. We’ve now simplified the process to make scheduling even easier.
When you organise a meeting in a pod, you’ll see a button that says ‘Add to My Calendar’. Clicking this will provide you with an option to select your calendar (eg Google or Outlook).
This will open your calendar in a new tab, with the event details that you selected in Connect4 already loaded. If you’re using Google Calendar you’ll see that your pod members should all be pre-loaded as guests.
Note: Google Calendar adds Google Meet to event invites by default. You can turn this off in your Google Calendar settings.
Simply hit ‘save’ in your calendar to invite everyone to your meeting. Don’t forget to also click ‘Save meeting’ in Connect4 so that the meeting time shows up in your pod.
When it’s time for your meeting, all you and your guests need to do is click the link inside their calendar invite. Provided that they have already signed up to Connect4, they will be taken directly to the relevant pod, ready for the meeting.
The important thing to remember in this new flow is that it is the captain’s responsibility to make sure that they send out calendar invites.
Connect4 no longer emails calendar invitations directly.
We have a host of new features that we’ll be revealing very shortly, so stay tuned. In the meantime if you’re having any problems, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected].
