Have you ever wondered how you can coordinate the schedules of 4 busy attorneys, one busy mediator, and their respective clients and get one date in common?. Well there are several ways. One is to spend hours making calls to all the parties by telephone and getting their dates of availabilities, then compiling a matrix to find out the date is right, then contacting everyone to confirm that the date, and hopefully not repeating and rinsing again because one person’s date now changed. Or on the other hand, you can spend five minutes entering your dates into a calendar scheduling program called “WhichDateWorks” and then sending one email and waiting to get the results.
Whichdateworks is a simple to use, easy interface that allows anyone to quickly and efficiently identify which dates work for multiple parties without wasting all the time going back and forth over dates.
WhichDateWorks is simple. You create an event, enter the dates you are available, input the email addresses of the people you need to schedule with and send it out. You can limit the dates to any specific timeframe such as the next two weeks or the next three days. There is no subscription needed. The people you send the email to simply follow the link in their email and select the date that works best.
WhichDateWorks takes less than five minutes to schedule your dates, and send the email. One limitation, however, is if you don’t want to book a date, but specific hours. WhichDateWorks only works for the entire day, and not for portions of the day.
As a mediator, this program is invaluable. This program helps to eliminate the biggest concern regarding scheduling of mediations: agreeing on the right date. You can pick your available dates, publish them to the parties, and then wait for the email identifying the exact dates that work best. It’s as simple as that.
