Say goodbye to your tear-off calendar and your online scheduling app. Coolendar is a new system that takes planning to a whole other level and offers an abundance of alerts, tags, and list-making features to ensure you’ll never miss an important appointment again.
Integration is a key element with Coolendar, and people who aren’t interested in syncing up their tear-off, desktop, and mobile calendars probably shouldn’t spend time trying out this web-based application. For people who do want a single calendar and to-do list application that’s accessible on virtually every platform, the process of exploring Coolendar begins by signing in with a Google account. Sync up your existing Google Calendar, Apple iCal, or Microsoft Outlook accounts, and then begin adding any future plans or to-do list items to Coolendar as they come up. The plans you type into Coolendar should include a due date, time, description, and any relevant tags. These plans will then be synced with your other calendars, so you can be sure the 10 a.m. massage you entered on Coolendar will show up on Microsoft Outlook when you check your calendar at the office.
Check off tasks as they get accomplished throughout the day and watch as the list in your “Done” category fills up over time. One of the features that separates Coolendar from competing calendar apps is its hashtag capabilities, which you can use to browse all the tasks in a given category, like #work, #play, or #pets. For people who are willing to let go of traditional notions about how a calendar is supposed to look and function, Coolendar may be a step in the future of daily scheduling and planning.
