Scheduling Assistant - Getting Started

The Scheduling Assistant allows users of the Office 365 services to more easily create pre-defined blocks of availability during which other users can easily schedule meetings.

This service enhances the appointment creation functions of Office 365. There are two types of people (accounts) that use Scheduling Assistant: Schedule Owners and Schedule Visitors. Anyone who is eligible for campus mail/calendar can use these features. Many UW-Madison Academic Advisors are Schedule Owners, and this service automatically can link up UW-Madison students with their assigned advisors. Examples of use include:

  • Advisors setting up advisor/advisee meetings so that advisees can select from multiple available meeting times
  • Instructors defining office hours and allowing students to easily schedule meetings during those times
  • Appointment-based services allowing patrons to schedule times using pre-defined blocks of availability
  • Reserving pre-defined blocks of time within conference room
