Andrew wants to make an appointment with Sally but Sally needs to determine whether the time Andrew stated is suitable for her.

What do you call Andrew and Sally? I found words like appointee, appointer, subject but they all don't seem to fit.

I think Sally may be called object but I'm not sure about Andrew.

I would try the general terms inviter and invitee, or requester and invitee.

I wouldn't use appointer and appointee, as these terms refer to the appointment of positions (like Cabinet Secretaries and such). Your question seems more concerned with the setting of meetings.

  • But who is inviting whom? If Sally were inviting Andrew, she would have already checked whether she will be available at that time. If Andrew is "making an appointment with" Sally, he is inviting himself to meet with her. Apr 20, 2015 at 9:57
  • In Google calendar, the term organizer is used for the proposer of the meeting, and guest for the person that responds. These are probably as good as anything.
