FindTime
FindTime, one of the newest releases from the Garage, helps with the process of pinning down meeting times to suit attendees' schedules. Attendees propose their preferred meeting times, receive a summary of everyone's choices, and vote on which ones work best. When a final time is chosen, the app will automatically send a calendar invite to participants on the list.
Microsoft announced the integration of FindTime with Outlook in December 2015.  Invitation recipients can view invitations through any email service, however, and access the voting website on any device.
