Find when people are free to meet

Give your users the real-time availability information they need to organize meetings and interviews.

Availability Information

Create and send booking links

Meetings, appointments, and interviews are key events in any business. But organizing them isn’t easy. Making sure that people are free to meet can save hours of back-and-forth correspondence. It also makes everyone’s life easier.

Missed appointments, double-bookings, and co-ordinating attendees costs time and money. The more people that are involved, the more difficult it gets.

The Availability API checks the real-time availability of invitees so your users can schedule appointments that everyone will attend.

When calendar users grant Cronofy access to their calendars, scheduling becomes easy.

How it works

Know when calendar users are free

The Availability API returns the shared availability of calendar users based on their schedules. Everything happens in real-time. If an event is added to one calendar that time slot will immediately appear as unavailable for all the calendars you query.

The Availability API can be used to find when people are free. When calendars are set up for resources such as meeting rooms, these can also be factored into availability queries.

Calendar users have to authorize Cronofy to connect with their calendars. This can be done either through our standard authorization flow or using Enterprise Connect.

Use Cases

Handle complex scheduling instantly

More people in more meetings means more complexity and greater costs.

Take yearly appraisals. Hundreds of staff members need to meet with their line managers, but there are only a handful of meeting rooms available

For most companies, this means weeks of scheduling for HR teams. When they use a software that can check the availability and book meetings in real-time, the whole process is automated.

The Availability API can tell you when every member of staff, their manager, and a meeting room are available.
