Activity Scheduler helps create activity schedule of multiple members as also a combined one. One look can tell you where any member of the family is at any time or if the day has an important event.
Pros: Coordinating activities of different members of a group even a small one like a family is important in today’s busy life. What one needs is a combined calendar that indicates everybody’s activities in simple terms so that at any time anyone can make out where others are. Same issues arise for other groups in one’s life. Multiple calendars such as kids’ activities separately along with this overall view would be useful for parents to get a focused view.
The multiple-calendar function, along with color-coded events and at-a-glance graphics makes this calendar program quicker, more efficient, and easy enough for everyone in the family including the five-year-old to read. Month at a time or a week at a time views are available.
While icons used make it easy to comprehend at a glance there are additional information that can be put on the calendar that can be really useful. For example cost data is an important item that is useful. For lessons, practice or a baby sitting session, you could display the cost involved so that there’s a mental tally of the costs that are involved. There are several other additional feature that are useful one could color code events, events could be recurring, time/cost locations can be indicated, exporting to the web/printing are some of these features.
The user interface is simple and easy to use, easy to learn too.
Cons: This is good for overall, visual kind of overview. This does not provide professional appointments schedule or event/task schedule. If one is looking for such features then this is not the package for them.
Overall it is good for the simplified calendar option and a grade of 3 stars is assigned.
