Yesterday I was up in Grand Rapids talking to folks about Google Calendars. I hadn’t used them for a while and I have to say they were even easier than I remembered to set up, post on your web site and share. I thought some folks might be interested in the presentation I gave and the cheat sheets I made.
I also got a few good tips for maintaining a community calendar from Denise in Minneapolis, who maintained the Minnesota Sesquicentennial calendar:
Add items every day.
Make it easy for people to add events by asking the right questions.
Don’t require people to add all info to submit events.
Let people add a link to even web site for more details
Make sure to check links.
