Why Such a Strange way to Schedule a Meeting?

We professors (and many other in the working world how run labs, departments, companies, groups) spend silly amounts of time scheduling meetings. The number of emails that can go back and forth just so you and I and maybe one other person can meet is around five on average. Too much! So I am come to the simple conclusion that for most people, I will simply let them edit my calendar directly! Crazy!

About Eric's Calendars

To that end, I have two Google calendars, one for me and one for meetings with you and me.

1) My main calendar filled with events that I have scheduled and only I can edit is here. You can also find it by adding the Google calendar with id klavins --AT-- uw.edu.
2) My "Meetings Scheduled by Others" calendar is here. You can also find it by adding the Google calendar with id uw.edu_tr0thtqoo63fqeqipkdklcq50s@group.calendar.google.com.

Scheduling a Meeting

I you would like to schedule a meeting with me, please do the following:

a) Add both of the above calendar to your google calendar and click them so they show up (you can hide them later)
b) Schedule a meeting at a time that I look free in both calendars. Note that I am typically on campus 8:30am to 5:30pm, M-F. Put your name and the subject of the meeting (e.g. Jane Doe : Question about EE 101).
c) If you have a question about a class, please try to get classmates to join you. If you see that a meeting is about a class you are taking, feel free to join in.
d) Please don't schedule more than one meeting per week unless I tell you it is okay to do so.
e) Please don't leave me with little fragments of 30 minute slots to fill.
f) I reserve the right to cancel or ask you to move any meeting you schedule. I will try to do so 24 hours in advance.

Doodle Polls

Since you have access to my calendars you are welcome to fill out Doodle polls for me! I would prefer it, in fact. Once you know when the meeting should be, go ahead and add it.
