    A barebones calendar plug in that lets you suggest meeting times from an email compose or reply, akin to Boomerang’s feature but not so heavy. You’d click an icon or select “Suggest meeting times” from the right-click menu, and a large sub-window would appear showing your calendar and any calendars that you are able to edit and schedule for (in Week view). You select which calendar you’re scheduling this meeting for. You click-drag-release to select meeting time ranges on your calendars, and those appear in a rail or menu on the right. (This menu also has a “Meeting Subject” text field where you enter your meeting’s title.) You can select up to 20 time ranges, and each time range has an “X” in case you want to remove it. The time range boxes on the Week calendar are draggable and expandable. When you’ve selected up to 20 time slots, you click “Add to Email” and the sub-window closes. The time slots have all been added to your email that you’re editing as text. For example:
    Mon, Dec 21, 10:00 AM - 10:30 AM (EST)
    Tue, Dec 22, 11:30 AM - 4:00 PM (EST)
    Thu, Dec 24, 3:15 PM - 3:45 PM (EST)

    Simultaneously, your calendar has been blocked for each of those times (to prevent double booking) and each calendar hold has two links in the calendar notes:
    “Click here to keep this event and delete all others.” (Clicking this deletes all of the other holds except this one and allows you to edit this hold and invite guests.)
    “Click here to delete all holds.” (Clicking this deletes all of the related holds.)

    That’s it. Don’t auto-send any invites, don’t create a custom link for the meeting so the recipient has to click to another page and go back and forth reviewing their calendar. Just text. Easy-to-read text that they can use to tell you their preferred time slot.

    You can do this in the Outlook web app by right-clicking the event you want to duplicate. It even says "DUPLICATE".
