Due to the pandemic I need to make some appointments with students for teleconferencing. Ideally I want to plan 3 students in half an hour intervals. The idea is that I want to :

  • have some group oral exam,
  • I want them to organise themselves into the groups (instead of making a provisional table and then having to make schedule changes).
  • I would like ideally a group of 3 people per 30 minute interval (the idea is that if somebody is late, I can start with the others and optimize my time).

I've used doodle in the past, but for this scenario is not suitable. I think although it has an option for 1 allotment per person, it does not have an option where I can set a group size per time allotment.

Ideally, I would like the service to be free (in the same sense as doodle). I've found this link which lists a few similar sites like:

  • YouCanBook.me.
  • Acuity Scheduling.
  • SurveyMonkey.
  • Google Forms.
  • Calendly.
  • TimeTrade.
  • ...

I was wondering if anyone had experience on the software listed or another suggestion.

Check to see what type of software your university uses. Many schools use Google's G-Suite or Microsoft's Office. Both of these have features for booking times:

  • Google's Calendar has an appointment feature (link here)

  • Microsoft has similar tools (link here).
