Folks ask us all of the time—How do I use the online calendars?

Here’s a short video that goes over the basics of using Google calendars; Yahoo and other calendars are quite similar.

Online calendars allow you to…

  • Access your calendar from anywhere in the world on any device connected to the internet.
  • Share your calendar with family, friends, and colleagues.
  • Invite other to join you at an event.
  • Set up “alerts” or reminders about an upcoming event.

Reasons to use an online calendar

  • Plan an event with committee members and set up due dates for renting the hall, finding a caterer, sending invitations, etc. Everyone on the committee has 24/7 access to the calendar so they can stay up-to-date.
  • Your calendar is always with you as long as you have your smart phone.
  • Make sure meetings, lunch dates, and vacation times are not double booked by two or more folks in your family, organization, or committee.

Try it out–it really is easy to use an online calendar!
