Best Calendar Software

Calendar software facilitates the creation of electronic calendars that can be accessed, edited, and shared with employees company-wide. Calendars have become standard features of many PDAs and smartphones. Calendar software can be sold as a standalone product, but oftentimes is included as part of a larger Office Suite.Calendars are used to streamline the internal workings of a company, with features that can include: collaborative scheduling, email appointment reminders, calendar viewing default (one day, one week, one month, or one year, workweek or work hours display, etc.), and group calendars.

To qualify for inclusion in the Calendar category, a product must:

  • Allow scheduling, from individual and/or collaborating users
  • Provide calendar views including: daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly
  • Feature customizable viewing options, i.e. “day,” “week,” “month,” or “agenda.”
