The creation of appointments currently seems very cumbersome and the process doesn't really seem to follow a logical sequence. If you look at the current lineup you have the possibility to enter a location and on the right also a resource. This is not consistent.
I would suggest that when creating a calendar entry (appointment) the fields Participants and Rooms/Resources are not displayed on the right but directly below the subject see screenshot.
From the flow of the user think about the subject, the target group (participants internal and external) and also the location of the appointment.
Since there is already a field for location under the subject, it makes sense to link this with the rooms/resources. If a meeting takes place internally, it will select the name of the meeting room as an existing resource or any other entry. If the meeting is external, he will enter the address of the location.
When I organize a meeting, I always think about it:
- What is the reason (subject short and crisp)
- Who is concerned (people)
- Where does the meeting take place (internal -> resource / external -> location)?
- Is the meeting online?
- Descriptive text for the participants and myself so that one can prepare oneself
The input mask should also be structured in this order. That the recurring settings, the start and end time as well as the options are on the right does not bother me at the moment.
From my point of view, space would be saved on the right side again and the central points are summarized, so the customer experience can benefit significantly here.
Thanks and greetings
