Shared calendars, like shared documents, push our boundaries in the workplace. Shared calendars let other people see and touch our time in ways that have limited equivalents. Having a staff member, usually an assistant, manage your calendar used to be a status signal and implied that your time was important. But shared calendars instead open your time to the world — a huge benefit for our evermore collaborative work.
Shared calendars allows you to share and cordinate schedules with others of your choice. You do not have to worry about calling and/or emailing participants numerous times to schedule an event. When you know when everyone is free or busy, scheduling is a snap. You can also send invitations to your events and track their RSVPs by email.
