Working from home seemed to be the only remedy to ensure people don’t step out of the house! Not many people are used to this new way of working. Besides, it would be best if you exercised some discipline to ensure you work on time from home. For this, Google Calendar is the best option.

2.      Let other working members view it

Many companies today have employed workers from various time-zones on one project. And that makes it complicated for all the people to stay awake or be present near the computer every time. Hence, when you use Google Calendars, you can add the event or meeting details and keep it open for others to edit and make changes if necessary. It allows all your employees to operate from the same level and ensure no one misses any data when another employee is not available. Do you want to share the calendar with a project manager who might make changes in it? If yes, then you need to opt-in for the edit option while sending it. 

3.      Aesthetics matter

Gone are the days when online calendars used to be bland and boring. It was mostly because of its basic look. However, today you can use the latest changes and add the required variation to your life. You can add the necessary colors to make it appear aesthetic and ensure that the work gets done.

4.      It helps team members to stay tuned to essential details

They can sync in the app on their mobile and use it even when they’re on the move. It helps them to check the necessary updates for mission-critical projects and assignments. It helps team members to edit any changes at anytime from anywhere.
