One of the newest Calendar features involves the ability to take the data from your meeting data stored within your calendar and use various analytics to assess how you are using your time to plan and conduct meetings.
Here's how you can use meeting analytics on your Calendar account.
As you can see from your meetings analytics dashboard, there is a lot of data that you can start analyzing once you schedule and hold meetings through your Calendar account.
First, you can opt for different time periods to analyze.
In the top left-hand side of your dashboard, there are different time options that you can analyze. The one in blue shows the current time being assessed. Just click on a time period to analyze a different time range.
Once you select the time period, the next part of your analytics dashboard will adjust to show updated data for that range. You'll be able to see how many hours you spent on meetings, how many meetings you held, how many attended, how many declined to participate, and how many participants missed a meeting.
Other statistics include which meetings had the most people in attendance and the average length of time spent at each meeting. All this data can help inform how you plan and manage future meetings to ensure optimum results for the time spent.
As the meeting organizer, you can also get other statistics about the meetings you organized, including accepted and rejected invitees as well as missed invitees. This will also provide a way to see where you might make further improvements for future meetings.
