You can then enter the meeting topic, propose times when you're available, and send them a description of the meeting. My favorite TimeBridge feature is the option of starting a Web conference or holding a call. When you pick the conference call option, the site provides you with a dial-in number.” more »

January 9, 2008 | Kevin Purdy

Setting up a meeting agenda is easy — at least compared with the task of finding a time that all the participants can and will make.

PC World: TimeBridge Review

January 7, 2008 | Kevin C. Tofel

Meetings may be a necessary evil, but the time required to schedule them can be a real productivity killer. Microsoft Outlook has helpful tools such as shared calendars and auto-selection of meeting times, but its usefulness is limited to people within the same company.

Webware: Highly useful: TimeBridge makes scheduling easy

September 10, 2007 | Rafe Needleman

I wrote favorably about the idea of TimeBridge last year. It's a service that's supposed to make scheduling meetings less of pain in the neck, by letting an organizer send out several proposed times for a meeting, and then coordinating the replies of attendees until everyone agrees on a single time, at which point it will lock in the agreed-on time for everyone and release the tentative hold it had on the alternate spots. more »
