What do invitees see when I invite them to a meeting?
Meeting invitees will automatically receive an email from your automated assistant asking them to select a time. View our FAQ to learn more and view examples...
Before Zoom.ai, most meetings required the meeting creator to email back and forth with the invitee to find a mutual time, or to simply book a time and hope for the best. Zoom.ai is purposely built to add more automation and intelligence to the meeting scheduling process. Here's what happens when you invite your invitees to a meeting:
Once you finish a meeting scheduling request (in the platform of your choice - chat, email or web) your invitees automatically receive an email from your automated assistant with the meeting details. You meanwhile can sit back and enjoy a coffee, or get back to other tasks while Zoom.ai books the meeting for you!
The meeting invite email includes a link "Respond to Meeting Request". When clicked it takes the user to the meeting acceptance interface (more info below).
- Meeting creators can choose to be Cc'd on the invite email for full visibility (this is on by default)
- Need to customize the default message sent out to your invitees? Not a problem - learn how

Selecting a Time
On the Meeting Acceptance page invitees have an overview of all the important meeting details: meeting type, duration, other attendees, agenda (if added) and timezones.
From this interface invitees can easily select a date and time based on the meeting creator's availability.
For group meetings, invitees are able to see what times others have already selected and are prompted to select multiple times to give the group the best chance of meeting at a times that works for all.
Invitees can also optionally upload their calendar so they can easily see conflicts between your schedule and theirs. The synced results are only visible to that specific user and not the meeting creator. Syncing for external users is not stored by Zoom.ai so remains private to the invitee.
- Hide Conflicts allows users who upload their calendar (or Zoom.ai users) to hide any times that conflict with the meeting creator's schedule. They can also choose to turn this off and show their full calendar if they want to override an existing event.
For 1:1 Meetings: Once the invitee selects a time and clicks "confirm" the meeting is booked and a calendar invite is sent to both the meeting creator and the invitee with all the details.
For Group Meetings: Once the invitee selects a time (or ideally multiple times) and clicks "confirm" the meeting vote is recorded. Zoom.ai's intelligent scheduling algorithm ensures the meeting is booked when enough invitees have selected a time, and at a time that works best for all invitees (this is part of the scheduling AI that makes Zoom.ai so smart!). Once booked, a calendar invite is automatically created and sent to all meeting invitees.
Notifications and Updates
- To ensure a meeting is not waiting on a invitees vote, Zoom.ai automatically sends email notifications reminding your invitees are able to choose a time (so you don't have to!) Here's how Zoom.ai automatically follows up
- Meeting Creators can see all their pending and complete scheduling requests, including invitees who haven't yet chosen times from the Active Tasks page.
