An online calendar can be a useful tool for a website. Having a calendar online lets visitors see events that are coming up. A calendar can also be used for employees to see their schedules. Holidays as well as other special occasions can also be posted to the calendar. Calendar can also be used to send out email reminders for upcoming events.
Some online calendars will offer auto-fill features. This is a useful feature for posting recurring events. For example, if you have a staff meeting every Monday afternoon, you could use the auto-fill feature to automatically add an event to every Monday afternoon over the next year.
