What St. Patrick’s Has To Do With Group Assignments

Have you ever felt overwhelmed trying to plan group projects?  I used to spend more time planning all of my group work than actually doing it.  That was before I discovered 24me and everything changed.  I now have a calendar that enables me to create, share, and discuss events in seconds rather than hours, and I can share tasks with my other group members so that each person knows exactly what part they need to do.


As I returned from midterms and spring break this week, I found myself needing to catch up on group work.  For all of my group meetings, the process is simple.  I create an event and invite my group members and post a note asking them what times are convenient for them.  After I receive enough feedback, I set the time and the event is automatically placed on our calendars.  Because the event is placed on everyone’s calendar, they will know if they are available instantly.


Just scheduling the meeting is not enough: we need to make sure that everyone is prepared and has done their part.  To do this, we can create and share tasks with each other.  I can even monitor my teammates’ progress by seeing if they have crossed the task off of their to-do list as completed.  For my teammate who is admittedly forgetful, I am able to add a reminder to his tasks.  24me definitely helped take the some of the stress out of this busy week.


Now on to some more fun stuff, my St. Patty’s Day Pregame.  24me is helpful for much more than just organizing schoolwork.  Here is a step-by-step breakdown of creating my event and the features 24me offers:


After naming the event, these are the options in the menu for the event.


I can pick a date and time…


Set the location…


Write a note with more information…


And finally, invite my friends…


If my friends don’t know how to find my apartment, they can click GO and use Waze, Google Maps, or Apple Maps to get there…


And now, the event is on all of our calendars
