Am I missing anything? What has worked for you? It's been discussed before, but I'm still running into resistance with a few bandmates using Google Calendar to indicate availability (yes, drummers are infamous for this, but others, too). So far I've: created and given them a short "quick start" with graphics stressed how being able to see band availability instantly while talking with potential customer would be helpful getting gigs said "You don't need to login to the band's Google account I created" explained "You do need a Google account but that's easy (and I gave steps in the quick start) and you can very quickly indicate N/A dates on the band calendar without leaving your account" With one person (drummer), it seems more inertia than technophobia; he does the band's FB page. Yes, we've got some gigs, but the band collectively says they'd like more. I guess not everyone sees how this would be extremely helpful. Yeah, it's not necessary, but helpful. We have a few people booking and I'd like to help out, as I've done with previous bands. I'd just like us to look professional and be able to respond immediately when a discussion turns to date availability. I really don't want to be an enabler by saying "send me this month's N/A dates and I'll enter them into the calendar [you big poopyhead]" but dong so really wouldn't take me much time; just an unnecessary PITA. My next step is to actually reserve rehearsal time showing them how to do it. "Bring your laptops to rehearsal, gang..."
