Big tip: as I keep saying only one major thing per email :-) Suggest
resending with just poll question :-)

Also suggest focusing just on day of week (as this will be ongoing
...) and time. E.g. suggest choosing wed and thursday at either 4pm or
5pm. We pick week of month after that (85 choices in a poll is
impossible ;-) )
