Bossy would like to thank everyone who contributed a solution for how to
help the Bossy family coordinate and update their schedules in calendar
given their hectic lifestyle and incompatible technology.
The overwhelming opinion pointed in the direction of Google calendar. In fact, this suggestion was so far the majority — and everyone’s input of how Google calendar could solve Bossy’s problem so thoughtful and varied — that Bossy decided the fairest way to select the winning solution was to randomly select one voice from the Google calendar chorus.
And so the winner of the $250 gift card goes to Cookiesandclogs, who writes,
We also use Google calendar. It takes a bit of determination to keep it up-to-date but it’s great for multiple people. We have my husband (blue), my daughter (pink), myself (blue), and a family (orange) setting. We can even sync it to our phones (smart phones only). If your DD needs to add/edit an appointment but is not at a computer, she can just text one of you. You could even set up e-mail reminders that she can get if her phone even has internet. Some events can even be marked as private or busy if you family member wants a bit of privacy for events such as dates, etc. This has been great for planning and has prevented a lot of conflicted schedules.
A giant thank you to everyone who participated! Bossy is looking forward to becoming acquainted with Google calendar and reporting back here on the results. Wish Bossy luck!
