Improve your group’s calendar

Just about every group has a calendar of upcoming events.  Too often the event details are distributed in the body of an email or in an attached spreadsheet.

Why not use a shared online calendar? Make sure that it supports iCal integration. This will let your members import it into their calendar instead of re-typing it. This will save them time and also eliminate the possibility of them typing it into their calendar incorrectly and showing up on the wrong date or time.

Google and Yahoo both offer free online calendars.  If you’re using Circlebox, it has group calendar functionality built in.
