Google Calendar is one of those tools that I didn’t think very much of at the beginning and now helps run my entire life. The fact that so many online services allow you to import event info into Google Calendar is one of the things that’s made it so essential. The ability to create and color code separate calendars for which you can have individual settings and sharing options is another.
Lifehacker has a great article with tips on how to use Google Calendar as a project management tool. I’ve already been doing this for several years, creating a calendar for each client project and then sharing it with that client. However, this article has shown me that there’s so much more I could be doing to help manage taks and track work done.
Definitely worth bookmarking even if you don’t start using this tool now.
