MSN Calendar becoming Windows Live Calendar
If you have recently logged onto your Windows Live Hotmail or Windows Live Calendar, you would be greeted with more pleasing interface accompanied by more powerful features as well. Alongside with that, there is a note that erstwhile MSN Calendar is being supplanted by Windows Live Calendar which is slowly coming out of beta shell. Going the FAQ about migration of MSN to Windows Live for Calendar services, the following are some of the dates that we may need to remember:
- Possible Date of Calendar Moves Completion: March 1, 2009
- Retiration of MSN Calendar: July 1, 2009
- The FAQ however also mentions that these dates are subject to change.
At least from a quick tour of Windows Live Calendar, the following are some of the good features I could see:
- Shared Calendars like 'Holiday Calendar'.
- Third Party Calendar Import through URL or ICS file.
- Calendar sharing
These moves should help us plan and coordinate our activities more clearly and help us in streamlining our time management more effectively.
