In a previous post about Google product experiences, I noted that Google Calendar wasn’t quite there yet on my “everyday use” list, thanks to syncing.
My wife just shared a link with me from the official Google Blog regarding a new tool for syncing your Google Calendar.
It sounds exactly like what I’ve been waiting for:
This was my life for a whole year before we started working on Google Calendar Sync, a 2-way synching application between Google Calendar and the calendar in Microsoft Outlook. I was probably the most excited person on the team when we started developing it, because now I can access my calendar at home or on my laptop, on Google Calendar or in Outlook. When I add an event to the Outlook calendar on my laptop, Google Calendar Sync syncs it to my Google Calendar — and since I also have Google Calendar Sync running on my desktop, the event then syncs from Google Calendar to Outlook calendar on my desktop. All of my calendar views are always up to date, and I can choose whichever one I want to use.
