    fromatoz :  I’m assuming they want you to send a “doodle” or something to get a poll of when everyone is available?

    I would also guess a poll for dates?

    Isn’t it like sending a calendar invite/ or using a scheduling tool to ensure all relevant parties can settle on a date and time?

     I would guess it was a calendar invite but I haven’t heard anyone use that term.

    I haven’t heard of that one specifically, but I looked it up and we use similar programs at work.

    I hear this phrase all the time at work! Large, Fortune 100 company.

    That’s pretty common/self-explanatory IMO. Awkward of your boss to add that comment.

    In the context you’ve given a meeting maRker might make more sense to me. But usually we just say calendar invite when we’re talking about things like that.

    I’ve never heard of the term “meeting maker” but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to deduce what it means. Even if the other guy on the call had no idea what it meant, you clarified it in 2 seconds on the phone and he got the picture. Also it is just such a minor issue, it’s not like you fucked anything up or caused chaos or a bunch of trouble for anyone.

    But even if you had made an actual mistake, that’s still no excuse for you boss to demean you on a call with multiple other people, including people from outside your company. That’s SO unprofessional. I’d be fuming. What an asshole!!!

    fromatoz :  I had not hear the specific phrase, but that’s exactly what I would think it is. Even if you did use a phrase that’s not common, that still is not an excuse for your boss to mock you in front of a vendor (or anyone, but especially not outside people). I would definitely talk to HR. I’m pretty sure that it is illegal for your boss to ask where you are havng medical procedures done and what you are having done or why. All that he needs to know is it is a doctor’s appointment.

    fromatoz :  I would assume it’s a timeline/Gantt Chart or a survey for meeting availablility/scheduling conflicts? I’ve literally never heard this, though.
