The FindTime extension will cease to function and will be removed from Outlook for Windows, Web and Mac. Scheduling Poll is the replacement function, integrated directly into Outlook clients for all users as a native function.
The FindTime extension will cease to function on December 11, 2023. Microsoft will begin the changeover on December 11, 2023, and plans to complete it by the end of the same week.
How will this affect your organization?
Once the change has been deployed, your users will need to use Scheduling Poll to replace the FindTime extension.
Scheduling Poll is currently available to all Outlook users on the Web and Mac. It is available to classic Outlook users on Windows in the current channel, the monthly corporate channel and the semi-annual preview corporate channel. It will be available to classic Outlook users in the semi-annual enterprise channel in January 2024, and in the semi-annual extended channel in June 2024.
Users who do not yet have access to the Scheduling Poll can either switch to the current channel, monthly corporate channel or semi-annual corporate preview in Outlook Classic for Windows; or use Outlook on the Web to create their polls.
Note: this change only affects survey creation; surveys can still be managed via the FindTime dashboard – https://outlook.office.com/findtime/dashboard.
