There’s nothing worse than trying to find the invite that goes with the party you’ve got on your calendar Saturday night, or losing the agenda to a meeting you are calling in to while working from home. Information that goes with events sometimes can’t fit into the actual event record, and ends up stuck in email or some file repository.
And who has time to go fishing for them when you’ve got some place to be? Now, with FileCalendar, you don’t have to go into search mode to find what you need. You can easily attach information to each event you create so there is instant access, and no mystery.
FileCalendar App Review
FileCalendar is a calendar app that extends beyond what your built in calendar app offers. It allows you to attach files to each event. These files can be photos, documents, agendas, notes and more. They can even be videos, too. So, this app is not limited to being functional for work only, it is a great way to share an event and what happened, or even to preface it with a fun video.
When you first download the app, you will instantly see how easy it is to use. There are no extra bells and whistles. It ties in neatly with your iPhone calendar and can even import all the events you have already created. Once you have imported all of those events, and you wish to add files to them, you can do so.
After that, you simply use FileCalendar to create events and invite others. You can attach the necessary information that goes with the event so that everyone can see it prior to, during, and after the event.
If you choose to use FileCalendar to post documents and such after an event, you can use it as a tool to say thank you to attendees and just share memories from the event.
On a more technical note, the file types supported for upload by FileCalendar include: docx, key, xlsx, jpg, pages, mp4s. You can also upload these documents from iTunes or your device.
Uploading is easy. You simply tap on the event, then tap on the plus sign to add upload your files.
A powerful feature that the creators have embedded into the app is the ability to find these uploaded files. Sometimes you may not remember an event date, but you may remember the name or type of file that was associated with it. You can go to the Info screen and then do a search to bring up the event.
I would like to see an expansion of sources from which files can be uploaded, including Box and Dropbox. More accessibility will ensure increased functionality and the more the sources, the better for users.
Until then, I plan on making full use of FileCalendar. I have already seen a huge increase in time savings. I have all that I need for any event I participate in at hand, whether work related or my trip to the grocers!
