Online Calendar to Share Between You and Your Colleagues

Posted by Siobhan Hitchmough

We’re all busy these days, especially at work.  Team meetings, project deadlines, business travel, not to mention all your personal activities and errands.  Keeping track of your own schedule can be hard.  But to remember the schedule of everyone else in your team to coordinate better with them can be headache-inducing.  Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a centralized calendar you could share with your team?

Google Calendar is the answer.  It is an online web-based calendar that can be shared between you and your colleagues.  You can set events and send email invitations directly on it to streamline your meeting arrangements.  It will even email you reminders of the events if you want.  Best of all, it is free.  You can even keep a separate private calendar right on Google Calendar, so that you jot down your family get-togethers and errands all in one place, without sharing all these details with your co-workers.

Give it a try today.  Stop keeping everything in your head and save yourself some headaches.

  1. I don’t think google calendar is very good at all. It requires everyone to have a google account which is a nonstarter for a lot of people (they may already have a primary account with Yahoo and you can’t get them to check their gmail every day).

    Still, google is google and I’m sure they’ll get it right someday. There are a multitude of other vendors providing online calendars like yahoo, cozi for families, qlubb for groups, 37 signals for small/medium businesses and the list keeps going and going and …

  2. Yeah, getting a Google account might be a nuisance, especially when you already have MSN or Yahoo.

    The good thing about Google is that with a single Google account, you can also use their other applications like GMail, Google Docs, etc.
