Personal or Family Calendar Setup Guide

Our online calendar and mobile app make it easy to keep track of a personal or family schedule.  Set up a private calendar so that a screen name and password is required to view your personal appointments.

Here are some features that we think you'll find helpful.

Private Categories

Keep your events private by setting up a private category via:

Admin Menu > under Calendar Settings > Categories > Edit the "Sample Category" and  select viewing permission for the category. In many cases, it makes sense to make your personal calendar private.  
Select B. Private  viewable only by logged in users or  C. Selected Private viewable only by selected logged in users.

More on categories.  Think of categories as separate calendars within your calendar.  For example, a family may have a separate category for each family member.  Color code each category for easy reference when viewing the calendar by setting a Category Text Style and Legend Color when adding each category.

Mobile App

Access the browser-based mobile app from any smartphone.  Just enter your calendar url and select "Mobile" to quickly add events when away from home or office.

Event Announcements & Reminders

Send email notifications and reminders so you don't forget!  Set email reminders when you add an event via the "Remind and Announce" tab. 

Multiple Calendar Users

Create a user account for each person who will be updating the calendar and receiving email reminders.  To add a user:

Click the Admin Menu > Users and Groups > Add > Enter user info including an email address > Save
