Instructions for your immediate family to use Schedule Utopia calendars

First

Set up your family as an organization – use your last name, first and last name, geography (state or city) or some sort of label that will help identify it.

Next

Add calendars under the family organization you just created for each individual family member.  Make sure you don’t mark the “make these public” box, as you will want them to be private.  Invite your family members to manage the calendar (even if they don’t have an account yet) via their email address right from the application after you create it.  They will need to set up an account before they can see and manage it.

Finally

Each family member can begin adding their activities to their specific calendar. The organization calendar will compile everyone’s activities into one place.  If you “follow” a family member, it will put their schedule onto your personal calendar.  It’s also a good idea to add a “news” type of calendar for family activities that apply to everyone. For example, if you add a football game on the news calendar and everyone is following it, it will automatically be added to everyone’s calendar.

You can now easily manage all of your family members’ schedules in one place.  It would be a good idea to have the unlimited texting (SMS) plan for all your family if they want to receive the text updates.
