What Is A Company Calendar?

A company calendar is a shared digital calendar that keeps employees informed about upcoming events and meetings and allows calendar items to be managed both individually and collectively.
Because company calendars are universal, they keep employees informed and organized, and instantly update everyone when details change. Workers can even use company calendars to add their own personal reminders and meetings, so whether it’s a one-time event, regular meeting, or occasional activity, your schedule is always easy to find and up to date.

Problem: Scheduling Setbacks

Keeping a calendar can be a nightmare. Before the digital age, people had to be informed individually (in person or over the phone) of any change to a meeting, and there were whole sectors of the professional world whose jobs revolved around managing schedules.
While there are some holdouts, most people and companies have gotten on board with at least digital calendars, but many organizations don’t have a tool that centralizes this information, which means that employees have to keep their own individual calendars and try to personally keep track of all of the events going on. With so many separate calendar spaces, information inevitably gets overlooked as employees struggle to share information via email, posted messages, or word of mouth.
I can’t imagine what it would be like without an organized calendar area. It just makes everything so much easier and simplified. It puts everything we need in one spot.

Solution: Creating A Master Calendar

With MangoApps’ universal company calendar, events are automatically synced and shared with all applicable employees, so new events or changes to existing plans automatically appear on your calendar. This ensures that everyone is on the same page, and can save a ton of time.
Calendar events can include much more than just dates and times. Every created event can go into additional detail and provide information like addresses, phone numbers, and specific instructions. Employees can even RSVP, post comments, or ask questions, helping everyone prepare and coordinate in advance, and because calendars are entirely digital, you can access them at any time.
Company calendars also allow employees to include their own personalized events, making it a true master calendar for team, department, company, and individual needs. MangoApps calendars even sync well with common third-party calendars, so incorporating external events and sharing schedules is never an issue.

How To Make Company Calendars:

  1. 1
    Company calendars give you a master list to keep everything organized and centralized, from company events to personal reminders. To create a company calendar, first ensure that the calendar feature is enabled on your domain.
  2. 2
    Next, select the calendar icon from the navigation menu on the left.
  3. 3
    You can also create an event by selecting the Compose button at the top of your screen and then selecting the calendar icon from the drop-down menu.
  4. 4
    Events can also be created from within a specific department or team area by going into the area and selecting the calendar option from the options menu.
  5. 5
    To start adding calendar events, select the 'calendar tools' button and then 'create an event' from the drop-down menu.
  6. 6
    Choose what kind of event you want to create (company, team, personal, etc.) and then start adding in the details.
  7. 7
    Once you're finished, select 'Create Event' to publish it on all of the applicable calendars. Employees can now view your event, RSVP, comment, and more. And if you ever need to update your event or alter details, editing is as simple as selecting the 'Edit' button within your event.
