There are several types of cloud options out there to make life much easier for Virtual Assistants, entrepreneurs, small company owners and sole traders, and they’re growing day by day in this virtual world. Today I’m going to concentrate on what probably is the most useful and yet simplest one of all– online calendars.
With lots of online calendars to pick from (Google, Yahoo, iCloud, Cozi, Zoho to name simply a couple of) it’s actually a case of selecting your favourite. Mine is Google Calendars, simply due to the fact that I use Google Drive for my file storage, Google Docs for producing and sharing spreadsheets, Google Mail as one of my many email accounts and Google Plus for more social interaction.
Why utilize a desktop calendar?
Share calendars with your clients: It’s a great and simple way for managing work, consultations and due dates, and it overcomes any unneeded toing and froing via e-mail saving time and making you more productive.
Gain access to your calendar from anywhere and any maker: Doesn’t matter if you don’t have your laptop computer with you, merely log in from another maker or your mobile phone to inspect and manage your consultations.
Produce more than one calendar: If you run several businesses, or have a number of clients, this is a fab tool that enables you to produce a calendar for each one, even colour code them for ease of usage, and manage them on an independent basis.
Set suggestions on your own to your mobile phone: This is the huge plus of an online calendar– you can get a text or email tip for an upcoming crucial conference so you’ll always remember or miss it!
Set visits with RSVP’s: When you welcome multiple individuals to a meeting, you can request for an action to make sure all parties can attend.
Set repeating conferences or visits: Set the time and date once, and then just pick when you desire it to recur– nothing to it!
Sync it with your own desktop application i.e. Outlook: Considering that a number of us will be utilizing Outlook when in the office, you may be believing what is the point of 2+ calendars– certainly this is going to make more work to upgrade. Incorrect! You can sync your Google calendar to Outlook every day but this does differ depending on the online calendar picked so if you specifically desire this functionality, you’ll require to check prior to signing up for one.
