Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some frequently asked questions about FindTime to get you started!

Do recipients also need to have FindTime installed?

Nope! Your friends and colleagues only need an email address and Internet access in order to be a recipient. You are certainly welcome to spread the love and invite them to install FindTime, however, and become an organizer!

Can I send a test invite?

Definitely! Just add a second personal email address to the To: or Cc: line and you're in business!

Can I send invites to people who don’t use Office 365?

Yes! You can send a FindTime invite to anyone with an email address. Only organizers are required to be on Office 365.

Is my personal information or information about my emails stored on the FindTime server?

For added security, FindTime encrypts personal information (such as your email address) in Azure. FindTime also encrypts information about the invites you create, such as the email subject, the attendees, and the email body. Don't worry, we've got you covered!

What is FindTime?

FindTime is an Outlook mail add-in that allows you to quickly find time to meet with others - something that can take weeks without FindTime! FindTime helps you pinpoint times to meet by looking at available free/busy data for your attendees as well as creating a poll where attendees can vote on the times you suggest, and even suggest new times themselves!

How do I get started?

Simply install FindTime! You can also check out our How It Works page to see a quick walk through.

From what devices can I access FindTime?

Recipients can receive invites on any email provider, and can access the FindTime voting website on any device. Organizers' email accounts must be on Office 365 and can access the FindTime Outlook mail add-in in Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016, or Outlook Web Access (OWA).

I've got some feedback! Where can I send it?

Send it through our UserVoice page.

What's the Microsoft Garage?

Great question! The Garage does things a little differently; it is the outlet for experimental, small-scale, high-impact projects. Garage projects are created by small, independent teams within Microsoft (like us!) that are all very different, but with one big thing in common: They are obsessed with learning how you use apps, what you like, and how to make it better. The Garage project teams build for Android, iOS, Windows, GitHub, and more. Intrigued? Check it out at!

Who made this fantastic app?

Aw shucks, we're blushing! We are a small team within Microsoft, working hard to make scheduling pain a thing of the past!
