How can I better organize my schedule through better use of my work and personal calendars across platforms? My primary calendar at work is through Outlook/Exchange, but for personal correspondence I use gmail/google calendar, mostly accessed through my iphone or a browser on my mac. Right now I am just inviting Work Email Address Me and Personal Email Address Me to events (like meeting invitees) but perhaps there is a better way. Suggestions of articles/resources to help me figure this out also welcome! [more inside]

I'm looking for an Android calendar app with specific functionality when it comes to creating and marking off tasks. In short, I want to be able to create a task and have it repeat each day or weekly (and preferably still allow me to mark the task as complete each day or week). This is to facilitate making and meeting daily and weekly goals. Does such an app exist? What is it called? [more inside]

What are good (ideally free) web based tools for building a Calendar and also an Announcements/Events Board? And can these tools produce content that I can embed in a web page? Ideally I'm looking for two features, so it doesn't have to be the same product:
1) Ability to post announcements. Ideally like the List feature in SharePoint, where you can post announcements to a list and set a timeframe for it to start appearing and then an end date for it to stop appearing.
2) A calendar. We already have a Google Calendar account, but it can't hurt to see what else is available. [more inside]

I had a random childhood recollection pop into my head recently that I haven't found the answer to. I was in the Girl Scouts for a few years in the early 90s. In addition to the cookie sale, we sold wall size and pocket size calendars as a fundraiser. When did GS stop doing the calendar fundraiser? I was in the Colonial Coast Council if it's relevant.

I have several different calendar accounts that I use on my iPhone, 1 personal Google Calendar, an Exchange account for my primary job, and another GCal that my part time job uses to dispatch technician jobs to me. My part time job uses this calendar to schedule calls, so as it stands now I have to manually block out anything that I schedule on my other calendars so that they don't double book me.
How can I create a setup where if I enter something on one of my calendars it will mark me as busy during that time? I don't want to have to create every event 3 times, and I don't want full synchronization as I don't want personal details and business information where other people can see it.

I'm looking for personal productivity apps in which the calendar view can be presented in a continuous flow of weeks (such as http://madebyevan.com/calendar/ ) in alternative to the more tradicional day/week/month model.

I'm looking for crazy, off-the-wall (so to speak) 2012 wall calendars. I'm not talking Anne Geddes babies-dressed-as-dogs-dressed-as-flowers craziness, but rather things that make passers by stop to give it a side-eye and a "WTF?"
A few requirements: monthly layout, SFW, non-religious, and not simply ironic. It has to be weird

For my theater organization, I'm looking to order customizable wall calendars online. Ideally, they'd be 1) cheap, 2) available in bulk and
also available for individual orders (so we can send out a link to those who won't be getting one free but might still want one), and 3) that we can customize with both photos and important dates. What websites do you know that hit all or most of these points?

Where does Quicksilver find calendars when adding items to iCal? When I go to the third pane to specify the task's calendar, QS presents me with a list of choices that I assume I created at some point in the past but which in no way correspond to my current list of iCal calendars. I want to delete these ghost calendars and make sure that QS accesses my current list. Any help would be much appreciated.

What are some good books on calendars, chronology and the division and measurement of time? I'm interested in the history, physics and especially mathematics of it all. A giant encyclopedic reference tome would be excellent. Thanks!

Lesson learned. I should have bought my fave calendar before December. But I didn't. Calendars.com seems to be sold out. I like the "postcard wall
" format b/c it has a single line for each day, hangs on the wall, and is very compact. Any ideas?

I've charged with adding a feature to a shift scheduler / coverage requestor that displays shift information for a given week. I've been able to display them so as to satisfy the constraints I've been given, but it's got me wondering wondering if there's a more rigorous/mathematical approach to the general problem of organizing the display of any such calendar information.

Calendar and Scheduling management in a Mac Shop:
I'm currently the tech for an all mac shop that uses an old exchange server to do all email, scheduling, etc. We primarily use Entourage as a client. I'd like to switch over to an XServe, running Os X Server, however, I can't seem to find a replacement for the calendar and scheduling features in exchange and entourage. Are there any options out there that are Mac friendly? I'd love to leave the old windows box behind, it's been giving me nothing but headaches. Thanks.

Is there a way in Mac OS X to use iCal with an exchange server? Entourage for the Mac isn't all that wonderful compared to the built in Mail app and I like the ability to use the ldap server to look up names without an extra step. The only thing the Mail app is missing is integration with the calendaring events like Entourage has. Any help?

BigFatFavorFilter: one of my close family members has a photo in the calendar insert of the New Yorker (Dec. 13 issue). The calendars apparently only go to subscribers, though, so I can't acquire it from a newsstand issue. Would anybody be willing to send me their copy of the calendar insert? Please comment -- I'll email you with a mailing address -- and I can reimburse you a couple bucks for postage, too. [more inside]

I've tried to get myself organized many times but I'm still always staying up late and missing deadlines. I use a planner, but I think I need more structure (scheduling internet usage, etc.). Should I get a more detailed planner with daily schedules? A PDA? People must have dealt with this before planners and PDAs; are there any other strategies that don't involve buying something?

I'd like to print blank monthly calendar pages in a 8.5x11 format, but I can't find a good source. Google points me towards calendar vendors, and any web-based calendars I've found (like Yahoo) are predicated on me posting appointments and the like. Should I just create what I need in Word? Any suggestions?
