For Seniors: Schedule Events Using the Internet
If you're planning a party, celebration, or other event, using the Internet and an online event planning website can make the complicated event planning process much easier. You know what an annoyance it can be to schedule a meeting or party: You e-mail or call a few people to see if they’re available.
One person can make it, but another can’t. You leave phone messages for two other people who you don’t hear back from. Then you reschedule the event only to find that two people you never heard back from are out of town that day.
Today you can use online event planning sites such as Evite or Doodle to plan events by sending out electronic invitations that offer recipients a range of dates and times. The invitees let you know when they can come, and the service helps you to easily identify the best time and date for your event.
Most of these services are free, and you can use handy views such as calendars and tables to help you organize your various events. These sites typically offer a variety of invitation types, so you can easily create coordinating invitations (evites or electronic invites) for your party.
