How To Setup AND Share A Google Calendar

August 11, 2017

My brothers and I have been in a situation where we are caring for our Father. We needed a way to schedule when we were available to assist with his care. What I did, since I have a Google account, was setup a calendar that could be shared with each of my brothers. In this case, each of us had a Google account which made setting this up all the more easier; PLUS I was able to give each brother rights to edit (add or delete) events on the calendar. You can also make the calendar public (with viewing rights only) for those who do not have an account or those who need to see the calendar. Setting this up literally took me less than 10 minutes.

Here are the steps to setup and share a Google Calendar:

You can create a new calendar and invite other people to view or edit it. When you create an event, you’ll see an option to choose which calendar to add the event to.

  • On your computer, open Google Calendar. You can’t create or share calendars from the Google Calendar app.
  • On the left, next to “My Calendars,” click the Down arrow.
  • Click Create a new calendar.
  • Add the calendar name.  In my case, I named the calendar “Family”
  • Under “Share with specific people,” add the email address of the person you want to share with. This is where it is beneficial that each recipient has a Google account.
  • Under “Permission Settings,” choose an option in the drop-down menu. In my case, I selected the option “Make changes to events”; which allows the people you are sharing with to edit, add or delete events. They can also restore events from the trash that have been deleted.
  • If someone isn’t already added, click Add person.
  • Click Create calendar and you are done. Each recipient will receive an email to announce that a shared calendar has been created for which they can edit.

If you shared your calendar with an individual email address, they’ll see your calendar in their “Other calendar” list. If you shared your calendar with an email group , they’ll see the calendar in their “Other calendars” list once they click on the link in the email invitation from Google Calendar.

Important: To get your new calendar to show up on your Android phone or tablet, you’ll need to turn on sync for that calendar.

A FREE Personal Information Manager Solution

September 23, 2010

I recently had someone ask me; “Are there any software packages out there (for FREE) that I can use to manage events in my life (such as a calendar, task manager, notebook, reminders, etc…)? I was quick to the draw to the answer and immediately blurted out EPIM – Essential Personal Information Manager. I know there are many online options available today to help manage our life; however, there is just something about putting personal (and private) information about myself out there (online) that just does not sit well with me.

Folks, if you are looking for a software download, for FREE, that will help you manage calendar events in your life, help you manage tasks, help you keep notes, and help you keep contact information (addresses); I highly endorse EPIM. There is even an email client built into EPIM, which to be honest, I turned off and do not use.

I have been using EPIM for years and the most impressive feature that I love about this software is the powerful search feature that is built in. The amount of personal information (such as addresses, notes, tasks, events) that I have accumulated since I started using EPIM is quite a bit; however, I can bring up an information in EPIM’s database very, very quickly. As I type in the search box, the information starts to magically appear. Another draw to me about EPIM is the notekeeping component that allows you to keep unlimited notes in a tree-like multi-level structure.

EPIM is available as a full install on your PC or available as a portable application. It is impressive that such quality software is packaged into a file size of less than 10 MBs. I currently use the portable version of EPIM on my flash drive and would be absolutely lost without it. Oh, I forgot to mention, you can password protect access to your information, as well.

Features:

  • Excellent usability. Shortcuts that are fun to use and boost your productivity. Easy, intuitive tools arranged right where you need them. Link any item to any other items. Email to Notes, Contacts to Tasks, etc.
  • Security. All data can be password-protected and the database file is encrypted with multiple encryption algorithms, with the advanced industry standard AES (Rijndael), 128-bit key, and Blowfish 448-bit* key.
  • Versatile import and export capabilities. You can import and export HTML, RTF, CSV, TXT and TreePad. You can perform complete synchronization with Microsoft® Outlook**; and you can import from Outlook Express.
  • Available in many languages: Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Macedonian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, and Ukrainian.
  • System tray icon with a hotkey for starting and configuring the software.
  • Sticky Notes- place any of your Notes onto Desktop and get rid of yellow paper on your desk!*
  • Open-source Firebird database. Advanced users and system administrators get great flexibility in managing databases.

The Ultimate Clock for your Windows Desktop

June 28, 2009

Here is a neat little application called “Clock”… It is what it is!  This app is an analog clock that you install on your PC that has a vast array of features and options. Once installed an analog clock will appear on your desktop (second hand and all) and  an icon will show in the taskbars’s system tray (at the bottom right corner of your screen). You can “right” mouse click on that icon to customize and change the appearance of your clock (see below). I normally select “On Top” and “Transparent – click thru” so that the clock is always visible. There is also a calendar feature and a feature to set alarms (for reminders).

You have option to change the appearance of the clock by selecting from 50 different themes OR you can design your own clock theme. “Clock” has been my favorite in the clock software category and best of all it is FREE. From what I can tell, Clock does not mess with the registry; therefore you could copy it to your flash drive and use it as a portable app (as I have done).

ClockClockClock

Features as described by the publisher:

Beautful! You’ll love the 50 themes provided!

Smart! It remembers your appointments!

Easy! You don’t need a degree in computer science to use it!

On Top! If you like, it will always be displayed, no matter how many windows you have open!

Customizable! Change the background picture to anything you like!

Unintrusive! Make it the size you like: choose between four pre-defined sizes or size it like you want!

Serious! Clock will not mess with your system registry!

Small! It’s only a 1Mb download!

Free! It costs nothing!
