Scheduling Software Options

Interested in exploring scheduling options? 

In confronting the challenges of our hybrid work environment IT has received several inquiries regarding scheduling and appointment-booking tools. Currently, the only enterprise wide calendaring software the college has is Google Calendar, and our recommendation is to use the appointment-slots feature for booking. Some departments and programs on campus have more specialized booking needs and regularly make use of apps such as Calendly, Doodle, and YouCanBookMe. Department admins for these apps have requested IT approve Zoom plugins that support these third-party apps, and many have been approved with the understanding these plugins will need to be self-supported. The IT team does not regularly use calendaring software other than Google Calendar and cannot commit to providing support for departments that use alternatives.

If Google Calendar does not meet your needs for scheduling and you are interested in exploring other options please reach out to itservice@lclark.edu with your name, department, and specific needs and a member of our staff will follow up to work with you on possible solutions.
