In this fast-paced world known as the 21st Century, it’s easy to lose track of everything that needs to get done. Enter: Google Calendar, an ingenious application that aims to keep life as organized and as effortless as possible.
Included with every free Google account, Google Calendar offers a simple and easy way to log daily events and appointments. Each event can be edited at its creation to show where and when it occurs, whether it reoccurs throughout the month or not, and whether it is a private or public entry. If you choose, an event reminder can be set and Google will either email you or send an SMS text message to your mobile phone.
Unlike real planners, which typically come in either a weekly or monthly format, Google Calendar allows you to change the format of your calendar. You can choose to view calendar by day, week, or month. If none of those options suits you, however, a unique “4 Days” option lets you see just enough into the future without overwhelming you with an entire week.
Once you create your calendar, you can invite others who have Google accounts to view it. Similarly, you can view any calendar that your friends allow you to see. Calendars can also be modified to allow multiple accounts edit them, making Google Calendar a perfect tool for consolidating several individual schedules or for creating one central group calendar.
