Are you like me? Operating on multiple calendars, but need to keep them separate for obvious reasons? But need to access them from any platform regardless of where you are and what gadget or device you have handy at the moment?
My Calendars include:
- Personal Calendar - Family and friends' birthdays, doctor appointments, family activities, etc. (Private)
- Author Calendar - Book signings, workshops, conferences, blog interviews, guest posts and podcasts (Public on my website and automatically updated)
- Business Calendar - For the day job, meetings, appointments, events, deadlines, etc (Private)
I've finally found a way to keep these calendars separate, but accessible on one app as needed. I can pull them up on my desktop, laptop, tablet, and phone. Each calendar is color coded and keeps me from mistaking one for the other.
What I've discovered is, if I set these calendars up on my Gmail, I can then download the Business Calendar App from the Android Market on my phone and tablet. This works because both my phone and tablet are Google based and Android based. It syncs the calendars and keeps them updated for me. My private calendars stay private and my public calendar automatically updates my website without me having to physically go to my website and update it manually.
Of course, I can set details, repeating events, create task lists with an agenda for each day and set email alerts minutes, hours or days before I'm scheduled for something.
What calendar solutions have you found that simplify your life? If you have questions about this process I'm using, feel free to ask me here, and I'll try my best to answer. I wanted to share something that is working for me in the event it might be helpful to YOU.
