How does your team coordinate schedules?

Our team in the Balkans is geographically distributed over wide region.  We have personnel in Bosnia, Kosovo and Macedonia and use a wide range of internet connectivity options from dial-up, city-wide wireless and cable-modem.  Our field has tried a number of internet based calendaring options to help everyone coordinate the field-wide schedule.  None of them have really worked though.  People with dial-up have trouble with web-based apps, others aren’t geeky enough to see the point, etc. 

 

Web-based calendaring applications are nothing new, but in the last few days a number of people have been writing about something new called “30 Boxes.”  The beta is supposed to be released tomorrow (Sunday).  What do you use to coordinate scheduling over a geographically dispursed team that doesn’t’ have access to a central server? 

 

For more on “30 Boxes” check out these guys.  It looks pretty sweet.

Hi! We use GatherGrid at http://gathergrid.com to coordinate meetings, coordinate events, and find the best time for phone calls, etc. It's so easy to use - just click and send a link to attendees!
