There is no way to edit the date and time of the meeting. You can decline it, and your guest will be notified about that by email.

Account administrators can edit the date and time of an event with an external guest. However, we do not recommend changing it, as your counterparty may miss this information. If you need to reschedule the event, decline it and send your contact a new link to the open slots. Then they can pick a different date and time for a meeting.
