Quick Tip:
2 Free Online Calendars

If you do not have a computer-based calendar program (like Outlook, Entourage, or iCal) to manage your time, Google and Yahoo have full-feature online calendars to fill that void.

In fact, their features rival – and in some cases surpass – the more traditional computer-based programs.

Both calendars are easy to use, and both allow you to share your schedule with others. Why would you want to share with others? Planning family events, coordinating work schedules, and organizing meetings and phone calls with clients are three good reasons.

And both allow you to limit who has access to your shared calendars (Google having more options in this regard).

The Google and Yahoo calendars are free and fully support the following browsers:

  • Microsoft IE 6.0 (Windows)
  • Firefox (Windows Mac Linux)
  • Safari (Mac)

* JavaScript and cookies must be enabled on all browsers.

Both have too many features to describe here. However, they are worth taking a look at, even if you already use a computer-based calendar program.
