Launch Video Meetings from Google Calendar—RingPlan Integrations

RingPlan is giving busy individuals time back with this useful feature that reduces the steps it takes to schedule video meetings.

RingPlan is happy to announce its latest feature, designed with busy people in mind. By integrating Google Calendar with RingPlan Meet, users can now launch or schedule video meetings directly from their calendars. 

Digital Doorway Effect 

With so many things happening on a day-to-day basis, it is easy to get lost in our work and lose focus. This is especially the case when working with many tools and platforms. 

Much like going from room to room, switching from one task to another can often lead one to lose focus. 

In 2011, researchers from Notre Dame published their findings in the Journal of Experimental Psychology stating that memory is affected when walking through doorways. This is called the doorway effect. We argue the same thing happens digitally. 

If you find yourself often working with several user interfaces at once, you may have encountered a sudden loss of focus when launching a new program, or even when navigating browser windows or sifting through folders.

Much like the doorway effect, you can lose focus when jumping from one to another.

Eliminating Steps to Stay Focused

If this doesn’t sound familiar, congratulations, you have mastered digital multi-tasking. For the rest of us, we wish there was an easier way to get there.

That’s just one major reason why RingPlan’s new Google Calendar integration is welcomed news, it promotes focus by eliminating steps in the video meeting process.

Focus, of course, translates to time saved, which can easily translate into money earned.

RingPlan customers using Google don’t have to jump back and forth between their RingPlan portal and their calendar, checking for available time slots and searching for invitee emails.

Everything is available in one convenient view directly from their calendar. 

Activate the Integration

Users simply need to activate their integration, add the RingPlan-generated API key, and it’s done. With a click of a button, users can now launch a meeting or schedule a future one by finding an appropriate date, inviting others, and selecting RingPlan as their video conferencing choice.
