This disclosure describes the use of text parsing and suggestion techniques to simplify and automate the process of setting up meetings, e.g., via email. Per techniques of this disclosure, with user permission, text being composed in an outgoing email is analyzed using a contextual parser. The parser detects when the outgoing message is related to a meeting to be set up and also identifies meeting parameters such as participants, date/time, duration, etc. Based on the identified parameters, a list of suggested times for the proposed meeting is provided to the user. Upon user acceptance of the suggestion, the meeting is automatically set up and added to the participants’ calendars.
