Finding a suitable time for a meeting is a common practical problem. The existing software solutions either cannot be used across heterogeneous calendar systems and organizations, or require manual effort and waiting. We employ design science to study how meetings can be scheduled over organizational and calendar system boundaries; the scheduling should be effortless while ensuring the user control and privacy of the calendar data. The resulting artifact utilizes heterogeneous calendar data from the mobile devices and the cloud calendars; the aim is to aid the organizer in making better decisions regarding the meeting times.
