Google Calendar is the best

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: Overall very positive. I'd like to see it work better with Macbooks and Apple products, yet I know that is because Apple doesn't want other products to work well in their environment.

Pros:

Works very well as a main calendar application. Works well on Windows & Android.

Cons:

Hard to sync up with Microsoft Teams and Calendar.

Great calendar for company use

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: Google calendar is great as you can create shared calendars and colour coordinate them, so certain team members can see the same calendar as you. It also has a reminder function for any upcoming meetings, or google meets meetings. Very user friendly and useful for companies with employees in different offices/working remotely

It is hard to find any flaws with this calendar system, it has worked great for our use and company.

A tool for planning your time

3.0 12 months ago

Comments: Calendar is a useful tool. You can save certain important events by noting them on specific dates. It's also very useful as a reminder, to avoid missing appointments. My problem with this app is that I find it intrusive into my data, reminding me that it was designed by Google

Pros:

I only use it on my phone. I know it integrates well with Google Meet or Workspace, but I haven't tested it yet. It's a pretty useful tool. It allows me to save dates and important events. I also like the fact that you can share events with other people. The feature I use most often is the reminder. It ensures that I don't miss my appointments. It's easy to configure and simple to use

Cons:

The birthdays of some of my contacts on Facebook and in my address book ended up in the app without my consent. Google has shown me that it has no respect for the privacy of its users and that its privacy policy is overrated

My business wouldn't function without Google Calendar

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: This is the most essential tool for working effectively as a solopreneur with clients from all over the globe. I would have lost countless clients, time, and money due to scheduling mishaps over the years if it weren't for Google Calendar.

Pros:

Everything is instantly integrated, updated, and synced to take into account my availability, scheduling preferences, and time zone. When working with international clients I never have scheduling misunderstandings, something that happened to me frequently before switching to Google Calendar.

Cons:

I wish that the bookable appointment scheduler could automatically connect with Zoom easily to have the links provided to those who book upon scheduling.
