New Time Proposed Bug – Gmail

How many times have you had someone propose a new time to a previously scheduled meeting only to have to go back and forth to figure out which time they actually proposed because of a Gmail bug?

This happens to me at least once a week, but luckily there is a workaround.

What typically happens is that someone using another mail client, such as Outlook, suggests a new time for a meeting you scheduled using Google Calendar but the e-mail you receive does not show the new time.

However, if you open the message in a mail client such as Apple Mail, you’ll see that there is an attached .ics file.

Click on it once to highlight (don’t double click as it will open it up in Apple Calendar) and then press the spacebar to see the newly proposed time.
