Event Polls

Event voting is effectively the gathering of free/busy information from participants followed by the selection of a specific period by an organiser.

  1. Free/busy information is solicited from potential recipients by the organiser.
  2. Recipients respond with details of their availability (typically emphasising when they are free for the event, busy otherwise).
  3. The organiser then decides on a free period and notifies all free participants as normal.
  4. Recipients respond as normal to the event invitation.

A Web interface would merely provide a direct means of indicating event-specific free/busy information.
