Give option for schedule collection not just date-specific meeting

I use schedulers like Need to Meet and Doodle to collect my team's schedules for the term, not only for meetings on particular dates. I have a Senior Staff, an Executive Committee, an Outreach Team, and so on. It would be useful to be able to collect schedules M-F, without having the schedule be attached to particular dates. Accordingly, it would be helpful if one person's schedule could be copies to another "meeting," because that person is on more than one team.

    Thanks for sharing your use case with us. Hopefully the new universal free/busy feature can address part of this situation. If your attendees have synced their calendars and added you then you can avoid times they are busy no matter what week you are scheduling for.  It also sounds like this might be further solved if there was a feature for users to indicate a template of weekly availability or export a set of choices for future use. The more users vote on this idea the more it will move up in priority and we will consider it for future development.

    Like the person who proposed this, I use Need to Meet to collect schedules. It would also be helpful to be able to click certain individuals names on or off to see when different people can meet. For example, sometimes, it's more important than 3 of 6 people I've invited to a meeting are able to go; being able to click those 3 individuals' names to see when their schedules align is often just as important and seeing when all schedules align.
