Quick Guide: Online Scheduling Assistants

By Gena Philibert-Ortega Premium

Personal calendars have come a long way from the paper version hanging in Grandma’s kitchen. Today’s online scheduling assistant sites and apps allow you to share plans, schedule tasks, receive reminder emails and write extended notes about calendar items. Schedules are saved in the cloud, so you can access them from wherever you are. And these tools aren’t just for keeping track of swim lessons and doctor appointments: Use them to create a plan for your research, schedule society meetings and trips to the library, and collaborate with cousins on a common family history research project.
