Round Robin meeting

Round robin meetings are needed when the meeting host could be you or one of your team members. Let's say you are part of a sales team, and any of the five sales team members can conduct a new client meeting. In that case, you should be using Round Robin meetings.

Round-robin meetings are designed to distribute meetings evenly among your team members. It ensures that each team member receives an equal share of the meetings, avoiding overload or imbalance based on availability.

Each team member is free to have their own custom availability and thus have complete freedom when working.

Let's discuss a few examples to understand better how round-robin meetings work.

Example 1: Let's say there's a round-robin meeting with two members, and both members are only available on Mondays but at different times.




9:00 AM - 2:00 PM


2:00 PM - 7:00 PM

In the booking calendar, the available slots will be from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM. John will be assigned the meeting if a client books any slot from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. If the client picks a slot between

2:00 PM to 7:00 PM, the meeting will be assigned to Mary.

Example 2: Now, let's consider a scenario where both Oliver and Eve are available simultaneously.




9:00 AM - 5:00 PM


9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

As expected, the booking calendar will show slots from 09:00 AM till 5:00 PM. However, each slot will be available twice. Let's say client A books a meeting for 10:00 AM, and the meeting is assigned to Oliver. Client B can also book at 10:00 AM or any other time Eve is available. Regardless of the slot booked, the meeting with client B will be assigned to Eve, avoiding imbalances and ensuring no team member is overloaded.
