Then it happened. I got a MacBook. I went back to school to teach and thought, I need a new computer, so many schools use Macs, I don't have a Mac, I don't know how to use a Mac...I better get in the loop. Of course the Mac needs the Microsoft Office Suite too. And it was so. Problem...alert! Alert! My Mac that communicated with my PC and shared my Outlook calendar would not communicate with the Pocket PC. My organizational world was OVER. I needed a new plan. That is when I learned to embrace Google Calendar.
I have 2 Google accounts. One for home, one for work. I have 5 Google calendars, and share 2 additional calendars, and have access to view 3 other calendars. It's not as complicated as it sounds because they are all color coded.
One of the best things about Google calendar is my school uses Google calendar as the district calendar so I can quickly save an activity on the district calendar to my own calendar, but only the activities that pertain to me and my building if I want.
