    Call scheduling in Skype makes it easy to set a reminder for a one-to-one call with you and your friends or family. You don't need a shared calendar since the invitation and reminders are all inside of Skype.

    To schedule a call:

    1. Sign into Skype.
    2. Go to one of your one-to-one chats.
    3. Select the Schedule call call scheduling button button to get started. It will either be next to the compose bar or in your Add-ins Add-in button menu.
    4. In the Schedule call window, you can name your call, pick a date and time, and set a reminder.
    5. Select Send and the call reminder will be sent to your chat where your contact can then Accept or Decline the scheduled call.
