Why is the popularity of online calendars growing at such a rapid pace? They are applicable to almost any aspect of our lives. Here are some ways that people use a calendar in their career.

Calendars are frequently used in the service industry. Most restaurants today not only schedule their employees with an online calendar but the calendar is used to set people up as reservations or call ahead seating in some 3 and 4 star hotels.

Online calendars are frequently used in the medical field, say a doctor’s office to schedule appointments for patients. Most big businesses use these calendars to schedule business meetings as well as other functions.

Online Kalenderwoche also is a great tool to let people know what is going on in the community, showing community events, this is nice to have during the holiday season. If you notice most city and local websites have the calendar on their website for everyone to see what is going on so no one misses out.

More and more families are using online calendars today. The family structure is set on the foundation of communication, and with everyone miles away and with busy lives an online calendar will help keep the communication within families. So no one can be blamed but his or her self about missing the next family function. No more, no one informed me about the family get together. How does it help the family keep in contact? Most online calendars have a place to store the families physical and email addresses as well as phone number etc. It is key that the calendar you have has sufficient security, for instance verisign is a good thing to look for when you start a new calendar. Another thing that should be taken into consideration is that the web site will not sell your information to marketers.

Organize your life’s priorities by starting an online calendar. A good calendar will be able to help you prioritize on a rating scale what event, choir, or meeting is a must to accomplish first. What is the stereotype of people who use these calendars? That would be movers and shakers, or their assistants if they have any. But that is not the case anymore, more and more common folk have started using online calendars to stay ahead in life. Why? Because it is convenient to use a calendar online. How great is it to have access to your online calendar at any given time of the day. So when life throws you a curve ball you can input into your calendar and have to worry about forgetting it. Now you can make instant changes and arrange and rearrange your schedule without having to wait and write it down at home. With all the technology out there, most online calendars will allow you to access your calendar on your phone and some of them even have phone applications to go along with your computer. So the convenience of having an online calendar eliminates worries which reduces stress, which puts everyone in a better mood. So you can focus on what you really need to focus on which is what you do best. I have seen many testimonies where it has helped the all around well being of a person.

How much would this cost you

Typically most of these services are completely free, unless there is something so specific that you need a calendar to do that might cost you money, which is very rare. Is it hard to start up an online calendar? No, it is very simple, all you need is an email address and you can start it ASAP. What other services does an online calendar provide? It depends on the calendar. Some provide group contact information, where you can put labels for mailers, or do blanket emails to the group in your calendar. Also some calendars will allow you a message board for your group calendar, and some will allow you to do photo sharing, where everyone can share their favorite moments of past events, like your daughter’s wedding. Is that like a social network like Myspace or Facebook? No, while some group calendars act similar to a social network like Facebook, it is really nothing like it, people can not look you up by your name or email address. No one can see the group you started unless you invited them and they accepted to be in the group. Unlike the social networks where there is not much privacy for the most part. The nice thing about a shared calendar is about how well the group knows each other. Most shared calendars are groups of people who actually interact outside the cyber world as well, unlike some guy you knew in high school tracking you 25 years later on Facebook because he had a crush on you back then. Who really wants to deal with that. The great thing about the privacy in an online calendar, is that grandma and grandpa are more likely to use it, where they would hesitate to be on a large social network. Which is great so they can see all the pictures and other news at the same time as everyone else in the family.

How many online calendars are there? Roughly hundreds, but there are only a handful that are really worth mentioning that do a lot for people. What are the most popular calendars out there? My top five online calendars are: Google Calendar, Yahoo Calendar, Convenient Calendar, 30 Boxes, and Famundo. Most of them have phone applications, photo sharing and all are free. Which calendar is right for me? You will have to check it out yourself, I would suggest all 5 of these to see which fits you best. Most people are shying away from the big dogs of Google Calendar and Yahoo Calendar and are starting to use the smaller startups like Convenient Calendar, Famundo and 30 Boxes due to service and personalization issues. These are the fastest growing calendars in cyberspace.
