If you have kids, a spouse, babysitter, dog walker, PTA meetings, Moms groups, sports schedule, dance classes, and grandparents (just to name a few), it can be hard to juggle. And remember where to be. And to whom to remind to do XYZ. Sounds like you might need HATCHEDit
If you are a Mac user and your partner a PC user, we all know that can spell sync-ing disaster that usually requires a separate calendar. Emails clog our inboxes as we try to plan Mom events. Trying to follow an email stream as to when to pick up whom where and when can be parental overload.
Two Moms wanted a better way and created an online management system to help us juggle it all. Send invites, have a shared contact list, coordinate calendars for up to 8 people, plan events with other users – all in one platform. It is called HATCHEDit.
For example, if the grandparents are watching the kids for the weekend, they can have access to your calendar so they know where to be and when. Give the babysitter access to key contacts, like the pediatrician, without having to leave notes everywhere. Don’t want them to see the details of your Mom group? You can determine what extent you give access to your full account.
The hubby can add his activities and events with his own color code, and each child can have their own, all on one master calendar. Have a running stream for planning who is bringing drinks, apps or dessert at the next Mom night out. Easily upload your existing contacts and create reoccurring events. While the product is still in beta-land, the platform is already robust and will keep getting better. For example, Andriod and iPhone apps by the end of February, and a To-Do list function.
So if you need a better way to be organized in 2012, you should definitely check it out. Watch the video overview and know that you can be organized in less than 24 hours. For free.
