Coordinate & Share Calendars with Google Calendar

I can't tell you how many times I've called Becky to find out what time I need to be home tonight or to ask what's going on this weekend?

Here is how we communicate our schedules:

- I started to use Google Calendar and shared it with Becky by selecting: Settings > Calendars > Sharing
- I installed Google Calendar Sync on my work machine and selected 2 way synchronization through Outlook.

Here are the benefits: Whenever Becky or I add en event, we can see it in near-real time on the Google Calendar. No more double-booking a weekend or coming home late with the girls have somewhere to be.

Don't use Outlook or don't need to sync with just one person? A Google Calendar can be shared publicly and published so your group/customers can have immediate access to all events.

Do you have a different solution for sharing your information? Then give me some comment love!
