The basic, free, MeetOMatic service (for selecting dates) is always available at http://www.meetomatic.com. This service does not require any registration, and there is no charge. You can simply use it to set up and arrange meetings. There is no catch, i.e. it does exactly what it says; feel free to try it and to use it for arranging meetings. No registration is needed, because we have found that registration is an annoying distraction that prevents services from being simple.
There is a premium version available with extra features: By signing up for the Pro service you'll be able to take advantage of our great features. Subscription is available for less than $20 a year, and is handled through PayPal (PayPal membership is NOT required). We offer a 30-day 'cooling off' period during which we will offer a full refund, should you not find the service to meet your requirements.
If you are interested in a 'private label' version for your own company, which has extra capabilities such as custom-URL, more unique branding, "super users" and more, please contact us.
We hope to have such capabilities eventually, but right now you can deploy the following workarounds:
You can click on the clock icon or AM/PM button on the right of the calendars for more detailed scheduling (right down to 15-minute intervals, in fact). Please note, this is a Pro feature, so you will need to sign up to have this capability. Don't forget that for many events, such as 'get-together evening dinner' or 'the 8PM book group', the time can be assumed in advance (or specified in your email invitation to participants), and thus only the date needs to be selected!
No 'cancelling' is necessary: the 12-digit code for the meeting responses table (responses.php...) is only known to you, i.e. we don't even see this at 'MeetOMatic central'. Once you've decided about the meeting, that's all there is to it. If you've changed your mind, you can just ignore the previous meeting pages and set up a fresh one.
Yes it is. MeetOMatic Ltd. is the owner of the generic, anonymized and statistical information collected on this site (in the case of private-label versions, the private-label is the owner of the meeting-specific information). MeetOMatic Ltd. will not will not sell, share, rent, or give away this information to others in any way. For more information, see our privacy statement.
The meeting Web address (URL) associated with every meeting includes a 6-character random string which is unique to that meeting, and known only to the people whom you choose to invite. The meeting 'proposer' has an additional hidden URL which includes a 12-character random string for accessing the results of everyone's responses. You have additional options, if you are worried that the emails to your participants or their responses may be 'intercepted' en route:
This is currently under investigation, but the overwhelming evidence from our empirical studies is that people prefer to 'do their own thing' rather than leave auto-synchronization in the hands of a software tool. Auto-synchronization and constraint checking is a nice idea on paper, but does not accord with psychological reality. The fundamental problem is that a software tool can never know that I would abandon very-very-important-meeting-X in favour of just-announced-and-even-more-very-very-very-important-meeting-Y, no matter how many levels of flags and options I include in my calendaring software. That is a personal decision, and is the key intuition that makes MeetOMatic so simple to use. MeetOMatic leaves the date choices personal, and puts its effort into a nice display of the people-vs-dates constraint table (and helps you manage that).
Not directly, but if you are interested in a 'private label' version for your own company, or a capability such as 'meetomatic.mycompany.com' please contact us and we can set it up for you.
Please contact us and we'll be happy to help you schedule your meetings quicker than ever before!
