One of the nice features about Google Calendar is the ability to share with other people. This feature can come in really handy for bishops and Ward Executive Secretaries. The way the current system is set up, members call the executive secretary to make an appointment with the bishop. The secretary then has to call the bishop with all the appointments.
A possible alternative is for the bishopric to establish a Google Calendar for the various interviews that members need. As soon as the secretary or other member of the bishopric gets the appointment from a member, they can enter it into the calendar and make an assignment on who’s going to cover it. You can set Google Calendars up so that everyone gets an e-mail or a cell phone text message when the calendar has been updated.
Some of the possible benefits include saving time, making sure appointments don’t get forgotten, and better time management. Start your Executive Council Google Calendar today.
