Somebody recently asked me what I hate the most?
I had to think for about 11 seconds…
I really hate it, when people send me calendar invites, via email, without first communicating some context about a meeting – what’s the agenda? does the day and time suit you? maybe you should just read the documentation? maybe you have the wrong person?
First COMMUNICATE with somebody, then figure out if a meeting is needed, then agree a meeting date and time, then – send the ical file… sending a meeting invite and then having somebody reject it seems super lame.
99.8% of the time I’m actually happy to manage my own calendar, but if you send me a calendar invite .ics, ical, it will live happily next to the item I already added. I guess there is a small chance I screw up the timezone, so if you are flying in for this meeting, please send a calendar invite. Thanks bro.
Yeah, maybe this does not suit your company culture, but that’s the point of the strong opinions series, you get to strongly disagree with me. (-:
ps. a close second is probably sending winmail.dat attachments. Don’t do that.
