Online Sheduling starting NOW!

A while ago we all were speculating about Google calendar.

Now it seems to companies have beaten Google to it: Trumba OneCalendar (Review here) and AirSet (which is free). Jeff Nolan says he likes AirSet better.

I’ll have to check them out, for my use there are two essential requirements:

  • Make it easy to create different public views that can be referenced by a no-password URL
  • Integration with desktop calendars like Microsoft Outlook

I’ll keep you posted…

  4. I am not sure we make it easy enough yet – you can be the judge of that, but you can get a public URL to your calendar in airset (they default to being private to your group, but you can publish any of your group calendars to the public directory where they have a static URL). You can also publish a fully interactive calendar to your own website by cutting and pasting an html snippet from your group on our website (we render it on your site through an iframe.)

  6. Sorry, I forgot in the last comment to answer your other requirement. We have a free downloadable sync client that works with Outlook, Outlook Express, and Palm devices and desktop. More sync solutions to come in the future.

  8. Frank,

    As a gadget guy, you ought to check out Mediabee Family Dashboard for your home. It is not an online calendar, but it is certainly online-accessible. It’s built on the philosophy that people haven’t widely adopted calendaring because the current computer-based calendaring paradigms inhibit usage. (This is especially true in the 87% of households that still use paper-based wall calendars and day planners to coordinate household activities.)

    Some aspects are still a work-in-progress, but we already have thousands of active users who are happy with it. BTW, a third of the users we surveyed would never trust their scheduling info to a web site, so despite all the hype on online calendars, there are significant barriers to their adoption.
