New Disney Echo Calendar makes it easy for EchoEars to share their vacation dates to meet up with each other!

Take a peek here! This is a link to the calendar...

...and this is a link to just today on the calendar.

This new Disney Echo calendar will make it easy for all EchoEars to add to this calendar, sharing information we want others to see such as who is going where and when on a Disney vacation, cruise, etc.!

:confused: Maybe I'm missing something but I couldn't figure out how to add to the calendar. Am I supposed to change your name to mine and then add or what?? I was able to click on the day but when I tried to add to a time, I couldn't. Just wanted to let you know. :help:

Note: If you want to be a part of the Disney Echo's Planzo calendar, I have to approve you. To avoid spammers, I'll need to know your Disney Echo log-in so that I can contact you via your email address to verify you actually want to do this. If you request to be in the group without providing this when asking to be in our group, I'll need to reject the request in order to fight spammers.

You need to get a free Planzo log-in first. The information about Planzo's calendar says "You can see what your friends and family have planned, share events with them, or add events from their calendars to yours all in just a few clicks."

Here's what it says at http://www.planzo.com/:
"Share Events: Share your events with friends on Planzo"

"...Figure out when to plan events. You can see what your friends are up to on one calendar"

I created a new account for just myself so I could log in as one of you EchoEars to see what you'll need to do.

Here's how to do it!

At the Planzo.com/ log-in page, create a Planzo log-in for yourself. When you're successful, it will give you instructions about how to set up your own calendar the way you want it to look - as well as how to share an event on your calendar with "friends" -- in this case, "DisneyEcho" is the "friend" you want to share your event with so it appears on the Disney Echo's Planzo calendar as well as your own personal one.

To do that, first you'll need to verify your email address with Planzo to be allowed to send Friend Requests. When that is done, you'd request to be on the DisneyEcho friends list in order to share your events on the DisneyEcho's Planzo calendar.

You should then look in the inbox of the email address you gave Planzo when you sign-up for the calendar. They'll be sending an email message with the subject of "Planzo: Email Verification" from "Planzo Calendar" which you'll need to read and then click on the link they'll supply.

When you email is verified on Planzo, you can then click on the "Back to My Calendar" link.

Next, do what it says on your Planzo calendar:
"Search out friends [using the text box to the right of the "Users (by name)" box] and add them to your Favorites list. Just type in their name in the search bar and click 'Add to My Favorites'. After that, you can share events with them."

It worked for me. I entered DisneyEcho in that text entry box, then clicked the Find button to the right of it. The next page then displayed, showing "User Search Results"...
Quote
"DisneyEcho (Rich Koster)
Planzo user since: Jan 4, 2006

To the right of that was a link to "(Add to My Favorites)" so I clicked that. A verification pop-up window opened asking "Would you like to add DisneyEcho (Rich Koster) as a favorite?" with two choices: an "Add to My Favorites" button and a "Nevermind" button.

After I clicked "Add to My Favorites", this was displayed:
Quote
You have added DisneyEcho (Rich Koster) to your favorites.

Rich's Birthday is on May 2nd. Would you like to add this event to your Calendar?

You can then click the "Add to My Calendar" button or the "Don't Add" button -- your choice, and it doesn't matter which one you click on.

You can then go back to your own calendar using he provided link or go to the DisneyEcho calendar, also using the provided link.

Meanwhile, an email message will be sent to me to allow you to be "my friend" (which actually means part of the DisneyEcho group so we can share events). After I get the email and allow it, the next time you check out your favorites and click on the DisneyEcho favorite, you'll see "You are also DisneyEcho's favorite"



To share events:
After you've created your Planzo log-in, you had Planzo verify your email, and you are logged-in at Planzo, go to http://disneyecho.planzo.com/ to the DisneyEcho Planzo Calendar where you'll find "DisneyEcho Groups" on the lower left with "DisneyEcho" underlined below it. Click that link and a new page will appear which includes ( Join This Group! ) -- so click that and you'll see that it will instantly display "You are a member"

That means you can now share your event with the DisneyEcho Calendar on Planzo!!!

So you'd create your event (such as an upcoming Disney vacation) on your own Planzo calendar, What I did was go back to my own personal calendar and then clicked on "Add New Event" to find a pop-up window asking for the date of the event and what details I wanted to include about it. I entered in my son's January 2nd birthday this way:

For event name I entered "Michael Koster's birthday"

For the additional notes I entered "He'll be 11 in 2007."

I left the time set as the default "no time" instead of specific time of day.

I clicked where it had today's date displayed and a small calendar appeared where I clicked the 2 in the month of January.

For event options I took the default checkmark away from "include in daily/weekly emails".

Where it showed "Repeat:" I clicked on the default "None" and then clicked on "Day" to make it "Week"... and then clicked on "Week" to make it "Month"... and then clicked on "Month" to make it "Year" so it would repeat "every 1 year" and I left the default "no end date" the way it was. Then I clicked the "Save" button and my new event then appeared on my own personal calendar.

Once you are on the list of DisneyEcho "friends", when you're logged into your own Planzo calendar you can select "See Friends' Events" found in your Favorites box on your calendar. In that way, all the friends' events you have made on Planzo will be displayed to you, as long as they haven't set them as Private.

Rich I added you and Disney Echo on as friends. If I want to add any other Disney Echo member on to the friends list such as Kelly, do I need to or does it automatically add anyone under the "Disney Echo" category?
