Managing Calendar in Zoho Workerly

Planning and scheduling are important. Especially when it comes to business assignments. A well-conceived plan goes a long way in bringing positive results whereas, properly scheduled events can complement your planning.

Having to keep track of all these in a notepad is definitely not a solution. Calendars are the right choice that shows you the list of events by day, week and month. Marking your events and calls in a calendar, helps you track the upcoming assignments, events, and calls that are scheduled. Most importantly, it gives you an idea of what is lined up for the day and how busy or otherwise your week is going to be. 

While working with Zoho Workerly where all your contacts' and temps' details are available, you can make use of the built-in calendar for planning events and scheduling calls. 

  • Plan well in advance and invite clients. 
  • Create recurring events that would take care of automatically scheduling weekly or monthly meetings. 
  • Set up personal preferences for reminders, working hours, holidays, etc.
  • View calendars of other users based on the organizational hierarchy.
  • Import events from another calendar and also export events from Zoho Workerly's calendar.
  • Accept event invitations from other users.
  • Get a clear picture of the day's, week's and month's events and calls.
