Early Customer Reactions
We heard praise and a good question when we first shared the new calendar with a long-time Lucid Meetings client. The conversation went something like this:
Wow, the new calendar looks great. But what I really want is to have the events in Outlook. pause
Oh - hey, look at that - I can subscribe using Outlook! another pause
But wait, why would I want that?— a valued Lucid Meetings client
A good question! Let us share with you...
3 reasons to Love (❤) Lucid Meetings calendar subscriptions
- Every meeting gets onto your calendar
Lose the invitation? Or did maybe the organizer forget to send them out? No worries - your meetings are on the calendar regardless of what happens with the invitation.
- You can share your calendar with others
Do you coordinate often with other people? Or perhaps even have someone else who manages your schedule for you? You can share your calendar subscription link with them to give them visibility into your meeting schedule.
- You can hide your meetings
Need to see your lunch dates, but your calendar is too stuffed with Lucid meetings? Temporarily hide your Lucid calendar to get a better view of how else you might be spending your time.
Tip for US-based meeting schedulers
Don't know your GMT offset from your elbow?
Don't worry - you're not alone! Most US educated folks think in miles not kilometers, Fahrenheit not centigrade, and Pacific, Mountain, Central or Eastern rather than GMT.
With this update, you can now schedule your meetings and set your preferred time zone to Pacific, Mountain, Central, or Eastern, helping you and those invited to your meeting understand exactly when you want to talk.
New Dashboard shows what you need to do this week

On the new dashboard, you'll find:
