Is there a website like Doodle but for an entire calendar?
April 3, 2014 9:02 AM   Subscribe

My boss is going on a trip in a few months and I need to schedule all his appointments. There are 5 other people who will also be arranging meetings for him. I need to create a calendar that all 6 people can access and edit.

- I can't use Google calendar because not all users have a google email.

- They all have Outlook accounts but Outlook calendars suck because you only get one calendar per account, and I would have to share his entire calendar with each person. All I need is a new calendar for this specific trip.

- Doodle is great because you can merely add email addresses and those people then have permission to participate.

- Is there a website out there like Doodle, but for creating a calendar instead of just scheduling one meeting?

Are you sure Outlook can't do what you want?

File --> New --> Calendar

Response by poster: I don't have that option in Outlook- I asked our computer person and we can only have one calendar per account.

Do the other users have strong objections to Google or anything? Because you can set up a Google account without having to use gmail. And unless you can use Outlook, whatever you end up choosing, people will need to create an account to use it.

Response by poster: Actually, the problem is that I need to share the calendar with someone outside our network.

They don't want to have to add new people to the network. That's why Outlook doesn't work.

Response by poster: These people are busy 24/7, I don't think asking them to set up a google account is a good idea.

But if anyone knows of a better one let me know! Thanks!

Actually I take it back, you don't even need to set up a google account to share a calendar. If you create a new calendar in Google and "share with specific people" you just add their email addresses. (I mean, the person who creates the calendar needs a google account, but not all the shared people.)

Best answer: I was going to suggest Teamup, we use it all the time here in my office and we are very pleased with it.
