Management Apps

Discussion in 'Band Management [BG]' started by bigboy_78, Nov 18, 2013.

  1. Does anyone know of a good app to organise schedules, maintain setlists, record gig dates etc.

    Looking for something all the members can log into separately and update, but will sync to everyone else if you know what I mean.

    So a gig booked 21/12/13 is put that on the calendar and it updates to everyone in the group's calender.

    One of my projects uses this:

    http://get.planningcenteronline.com/ ...Plan and share schedules, music, communicate, etc. Modest fee.

    For a free option you can all sign up for GMail accounts and share a Google calendar, Google docs, etc.

    Thank you for your indulgence,

    Open a free Google account. Use Google Calendar (can sync with just about any modern calendar program) ... just set up the sharing. Use the cloud to store set lists, charts, etc. Free, easy.

    Planning center is incredible, but it's not free.

    I like the music stand app that comes with it too

    We use www.wiggio.com. There is an app for it as well. Calendar, upload files, etc. It's free as well and works well for whatwe need.

    Google Calendars are great. Simple interface, easy to use. easy to share. My wife and I also use this, our kid's school districrt uses it. It's a great way to see across the board what's going on and if there will be a conflict when I'm trying to book the gigs.

    The Biggest challenge however is not finding a tool, but rather getting everyone to use it consistently. If no one is updating the band calendar or their personal calendars, it all becomes useless.
