Free cost but the most convenient tool to organise the schedule in a simple way

Im satisfied with using this application and would say nothing else is better and cheaper than it. So go ahead!

Pros

It shows the icon on the Gmail interfere so it's convenient to bookmark on the calendar right away and you don't need to open a new window. Off course, it's free tool. Easy to use and have enough features to organise the priority of tasks.

Cons

It's unable to integrate with every app so sometimes you need to add manually. The appearance is simple and boring.

Amazing Calendar and Scheduling Software - Highly Recommend!

Google Calendar replaced our outdated paper calendar system years ago, and we've been happy users both personally and professionally for over 15 years. I highly recommend Google Calendar to other users, especially Outlook folks who are still stuck accessing their calendar from desktop machines only. It's time to make the switch.

Pros

Google Calendar is our company's go-to calendar software, and my personal as well. From visibility of scheduling, to integrating with other calendars, to sharing and scheduling events together, Google Calendar is top notch. I personally integrate my business and personal calendars on the same view, and use the reminders feature as a running to-do list of all I need to accomplish in running both my personal and professional life. I can integrate/share calendars with my employees or family. I can also import and export calendars from other applications, such as our reservation system, which is really helpful for our staff.

Cons

I have no complaints at all - just the irony of having too many events on my calendar, but I'm very grateful that Google is able to track and maintain my complicated life for me.

Google Calendar is great for what it does-managing complex schedules across multiple platforms

Pros

Google Calendar is great for anyone needing a free solution to manage multiple schedules across multiple platforms. We use GC to bring all of our calendars into one place (Outlook, GC, Synology Calendar) and then pull those into our site booking/scheduling system to manage availability of multiple employees. In our use scenario, the power of GC is that I can easily integrate all of the different calendar apps into GC, allowing other users to stick with the calendar application they prefer and are most used to using.

Cons

Very little to not like as the base functionality is free; the only con is related to integrating other apps through the developer console, but frankly that's just lack of experience with the console on my part.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Outlook and Calendly

Reasons for Switching to Google Calendar

We chose to use GC over other products because it is the most widely used calendar (in our experience) and integrates most easily with our booking software.

Google Calendar is going to soon make Calendly and others run for their money

Overall I had great experience with Google Cal. I use many calendars public/private for various use cases such as - Work, Family, Birthday Reminder, Study, Sycned Todoist Calendar and more calendars.

Pros

Google's new Appointment Schedule feature is ready to start competing with paid calendar alternatives. Love Public/private calendar feature, integration of Events, Tasks & Appointments in one single Google Cal app, Love that free version is powerful enough and love that with paid google workspace plan we are getting so many other benefits apart from new Appointment Schedule feature.

Cons

No Event scheduling feature where you can ask audience to suggest and upvote a common time. No list view like BusyCal which allows you to list calendar events and search them quickly.

Book Like A Boss

Reasons for Switching to Google Calendar

Now that Google supports the Appointment Schedule feature as part of Google Workplace plans I don't need to use and deal with Book Like A Boss UI/UX.

Great product for a Small / Medium Business

It really is a great tool, works like a charm.

Pros

This tool is very easy to use, one of the friendliest tools in the market. We have used this tool for some time, and it has become a part of our agile methodologies. The way it connects with other third party solutions is really amazing.

Cons

Some issues we have are when we try to use advance capabilities in iOS like uploading photos and editing texts in bold. In addition, we were not able to find a way to import or delete events in bulk.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Outlook and iCloud

We didn’t have a strong reason to change this solution at this time.
