Sure, you can lay out your daily tasks on a sticky note and tick things off when they’re done. But how are you going to share that with a team? And how many notes will you need to plan a few weeks into the future?
Bitrix24’s online web calendar software allows you to visualize all your tasks and collaborate with other team members or entire departments with free internet calendar sharing. Turn your tasks into a Gantt Chart so you can see how long you have to complete a task, and organize your project management the smart way.
How can I customize my free online office calendar?
If you’ve got personal, department, company-wide, and client calendars all running side-by-side, you could quite easily get lost. Luckily, Bitrix24 allows you to customize your calendars so you can focus your attention on what you need to.
One easy way is to set different colors. Put your sales work in yellow, administration tasks in blue, and social life in red. You can also temporarily hide calendars, so if you really need to concentrate on that project, leave it the only one visible — just remember to switch the rest back on when you’re done!
Connect your calendar to your other apps
Bitrix24 offers an interactive scheduling calendar, free to use, and connected to all your other business applications. Instead of having a selection of loose tools connected by weak integrations, Bitrix24 shares information between its features so old-fashioned copy and pasting will become a thing of the past.
A key example of this is the link between the CRM and calendars. When you set up a meeting with a client, it will automatically appear in your free online calendar tool. Play about with the customizable settings to see what works for you, such as early notifications and much more.
Streamline your workflows with free online office calendar
With Bitrix24, you can streamline all kinds of operations both within the company and regarding your customers. Got a weekly team meeting? Set it as a recurring event in your team calendar and ping a notification to all team members 10 minutes before it starts. Want to book out rooms in your office? Sounds like you need a company-wide calendar focused on exactly that.
When dealing with customers, automatically schedule meetings using CRM automations and cut down on the admin work until you’re focusing most of your time on the jobs you love.
Plan events like a pro
When you’re planning an event, choosing your date, time, and location is half the battle. However, with Bitrix24’s free online office calendar, you can really make your event the best it can be.
Our event planning software links up to your CRM, so you can keep track of all your contacts. But how do you get new leads? Set up a landing page for your event and include a customized form. Use workflow automations to segment all your new contacts into a group, and send them all a sequence of emails to build up the hype and keep them engaged.
Calendars for the HR department
Of course, calendars aren’t only used for project management. Your HR team can use team calendars for a vast range of services. A dedicated absence chart lets the whole company know who is on holiday and unreachable, or who is planning to take time off in the next few days or weeks.
And let’s not pretend that your free web calendar software should strictly be for work. Set notifications when someone’s birthday is coming up, and plan a little surprise. Similarly, a social events calendar is great for boosting team morale.
Integrate Bitrix24 with personal calendars
You can’t expect everyone to change their private lives, despite how functional Bitrix24 may be. However, you and your colleagues can integrate the office calendar with your personal calendars. With both calendars running side by side, you’ll never book in a meeting when you should be at the dentist.
Your Bitrix24 calendar can be synchronized with popular calendars such as Google Calendar or Outlook, and that’s just the tip of the integration iceberg at Birtix24. But don’t worry that everyone will be able to see your whole private life, you can restrict access to any calendars you like and keep your personal life to yourself.
