Ratings and Reviews
Appointment Keeping & Scheduling Tasks
I highly recommend Calendar. It has numerous features that allow one to organize their day and even coordinate specific events with others.
This app has really helped me to keep appointments when I am in the midst of doing other things. With the Alert feature, I can receive reminders to help me wind down whatever I’m doing and be ready to leave at the appointed time. With the Travel Time feature, I can set the time I need to leave for an appointment by choosing a location to leave from, in which case it figures the time to reach the destination automatically; or choose my own timeframe for travel. Either of these block off the additional time needed for travel on the daily schedule.
Calendar has also greatly helped me to get organized — to schedule out tasks that require handling. Before using Calendar, my tasks continued to be postponed and remained undone and disoriented in timeline and priority in the Reminders app. Having the tasks on my calendar helps me see the full day at a glance; what I need to do on a certain day; and block off sufficient time to complete each task. If I don’t get a task completed on the assigned date, I can either edit it to move the task to another day, if I didn’t work on it at all; or edit it to be a repeating event to work on until I complete the entire task.
Older you get, gets more helpful
I schedule everything on it…..daily, weekly, monthly and long term. I find it especially helpful with monthly and long term events/tasks like…. Cleaning air filters once a month, checking oil tank level, emptying house vac, testing fire alarms, and the list goes on and on with tasks that need to be done but that you just don’t think about. OR when you do think about it, you can’t do it because you are rushing out or can’t remember when you last did it. Of course annual reminders for birthdays, anniversaries, etc. are obviously important but so are reminders to have your furnace cleaned, winterize your irrigation system, etc. All the things that need to be done but often you don’t think about it until it’s an issue. It also helps to let you know when you last did a task assuming you followed through on it. Trust me…. The busier you get the more it helps and the older you get, the more it helps!
One of the best features for me is the two alerts that are allowed with each entry! A week, 2days, 2hours, they are all useful depending on the event/task.
Doesn’t sync with Outlook calendars
Calendar works great if you don’t have to sync any non-Apple calendars. I am a devout Macbook user but I have to use Outlook for work, and I like to have the calendar synced with my personal Apple calendars so I can see my availability according to personal appointments and school events that I’d rather not put in my work calendar. I had no problem setting up the sync, but it often drops it or randomly doesn’t sync certain appointments, with no rhyme or reason. Sometimes it will sync the same appointment three times. When an Outlook meeting has been canceled, it is not removed. I have always used Calendar without any issues or complaints, but I am now going to subscribe to a third-party application, to avoid missing important work meetings, or double booking and having to cancel something. It’s really disappointing, because searching online for a solution, I could see that lots of other people are having this issue, and there seems to be no interest in solving it. The only solution offered by Apple support was to delete the calendar, and set it up again, which is the equivalent to “ turning it off, and turning it on again.” Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, and even when it does work, the problem returns the following day or week or just when you start to get comfortable, it doesn’t sync your appointments and you miss an important meeting.
