How to get time value from excel and pass it in find meeting time for searching someone's availability in their calendar

So I want to check Interviewer's calendar according to preferred time of candidate and need to check for the available slots if slots is available we need to send them a team meeting invite. if slots is not available we need to check for the next Interviewer's calendar for free slots and scheduled a meeting on rotation basis.
