There's a Meeting Scheduler integration on this app that I use to schedule a meeting or a call with the team. The integration is amazing and quite simple to use, just like the chat platform it's on! By the way, it's free to use and allows for unlimited integrations. :) We also use it to collaborate, manage communication and tasks.
