7 reasons to use Google Calendar

Organizing your schedule shouldn’t be a burden. With Google Calendar, it’s easy to keep track of life’s important events all in one place.

  1. 1. Share your schedule

    Let your co-workers, family, and friends see your calendar, and view schedules that others have shared with you. When you know when everyone is free or busy, scheduling is a snap.

  2. 2. Get your calendar on the go

    With two-way syncing to your mobile phone’s built-in calendar or a mobile version of Google Calendar that’s made for the small screen, you can access your calendar while you’re away from your desk.

  3. 3. Never forget another event again

    Customizable reminders help you stay on schedule. You can choose to be notified by email or get a text message sent right to your mobile phone.

  4. 4. Send invitations and track RSVPs

    Invite other people to events on your calendar. Guests can RSVP to your events by email or via Google Calendar.

  5. 5. Sync with your desktop applications

    Access your calendar however and whenever you want by syncing events with Microsoft Outlook, Apple iCal and Mozilla Sunbird.

  6. 6. Work offline

    Know where you’re supposed to be even when you don’t have internet access. With offline access, you can view a read-only version of your calendar no matter where you are.

  7. 7. All this is free?

    Yep.
