Web-based meeting schedulers can be huge time savers and prevent your inbox from bursting when you’re trying to set up a face-to-face or virtual powwow. Last week, you got a peek at Doodle. This week, it’s all about Tungle.me which was recently acquired by RIM…those are the nice folks who brought you BlackBerry.
Btw, if you’ve used Tungle, comment on how you like it. How do you think it compares to Doodle?
Tungle was the second online meeting scheduler I used (and I’m about to try a third…more on that later). You will need to register to get an account and you can choose the Basic or Premium version. You’ll also get your own personal URL (www.tungle.me/username) once you set up your profile.
…and you can brand your page by including your logo…
Scheduling a Meeting
This 4-step process is easy to understand and implement. Steps: (1) Set meeting details. (2) Add participants. (3) Suggest meeting times. (4) Preview and send invitations. [*See purple numbers on the left side of image.]
1. You can send an invitation from your own e-mail account with the Tungle link.
2. You can let Tungle do it for you.
Syncing With Your Calendar
1. You can sync with Outlook.
2. Or iCal.
3. Or Google.
4. And other calendars, too.
Using The Web-based or Mobile App
1. Use the online scheduler.
2. Or the iPhone app.
3. Or the Blackberry app. Surprised by this? =) *Android app is in the works.
Connecting With Your Social Networks
Another cool feature is that you connect to your Tungle using Facebook, TripIt, LinkedIn, Plancast, and Twitter.
