"When would be convenient for you to meet?" VS "When it will be convenient for you?"

I have to write a formal email to my manager for arranging a short meeting. What is the more formal and correct expression in this context:

When would be convenient for you to meet?

When it will be convenient for you?

Please would you indicate a suitable time to meet?


For instance, consider:

Hi XXX,

My contract is almost over, I would like to arrange an appointment/short meeting to discuss about it.

When would be convenient for you to meet?

Thanks My name

As far as I know, using would is more polite than will. – Cardinal – 2016-06-15T15:40:13.080

1"When it will be convenient?" is never correct, because we change the word order for questions in English. You would have to say "When will it...?" – stangdon – 2016-06-15T15:50:25.630

When requesting

When would it be convenient for you to meet?

is a polite, formal way to ask.

Less formal examples might be

When will it be convenient for you to meet?
When might it be convenient to meet?
When could we meet?

Please would you indicate a suitable time to meet ?
