Calendar: Create a team calendar

If you’ve used Google Calendar, you are probably aware that you have your own calendar for work-related events. But did you know that you can create additional calendars to schedule and track other events? For instance, you can create a family calendar to schedule your kids’ soccer games or swim lessons. You can also create a calendar specifically for your team or department at work. Having a team calendar is a great way to track:

  • who’s on vacation, or going on vacation, and for how long
  • who’s out of the office on a business trip and when they’ll return
  • who’s taking a class and where
With all this information tracked in one calendar, it’s then easy to:

  • plan team meetings
  • determine dates for team outings
  • schedule who can handle projects
