PLEASANTON, Calif., March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CalendarTree makes it easy to manage and share lengthy schedules. It works for any type of schedule, including team sports, business events, church functions and more.
CalendarTree (CalendarTree.com) co-founders Scott Adams (creator of Dilbert) and Quin Harker were frustrated by the scheduling chaos of family life. Their kids' coaches would send out game schedules by email and the only way parents could get those details on their personal calendars was to add them manually. One evening in 2011, while standing in the back of a high school volleyball awards banquet in Pleasanton, California, Adams and Harker decided to fix this problem. They teamed with BlueChilli, a venture technology company out of Australia, and the result is CalendarTree (https://www.calendartree.com).
How it works
If you're an organizer for your group, you can create a schedule at CalendarTree.com and share a link with your members by any combination of email, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. When the folks in your group click the link, CalendarTree prompts for the calendar type (Google, Apple, Outlook) and adds the entire schedule to the their personal calendar. No sign-ups are required to add a schedule.
Co-founder Scott Adams, who can be entertaining with his Dilbert comic, but is generally a complete waste of carbon otherwise, says, "It feels good to solve a problem that has frustrated so many people. I feel as if I did something useful for once. I hope this doesn't raise any expectations."
People who prefer printing a neatly formatted schedule to stick to the fridge door can do that too. Best of all, when the organizer makes a change to the schedule, the changes flow automatically to each connected calendar and an email informs folks of the change.
Webmasters will welcome the option for CalendarTree to automatically generate a simple line of code that creates a download button to add to their sites. Anyone who manages a website can simply cut and paste the code to create an unbranded download button. If the organization's schedule is already published online, the download button makes it easy for folks to add the information to their personal calendars.
Network World Gearhead blogger Mark Gibbs says, "It's got a clean interface, it's easy to use. CalendarTree gets a Gearhead rating of 5 out of 5."
CalendarTree is free, and full-featured, for up to fifty calendar connections. For larger organizations, annual subscriptions are available.
