But, to manage your calendar efficiently you need to have the right one which helps you instead of adding more burden to your packed schedule.
Let me show you some of the challenges employees face when not using a calendar in the right way:
Everything is a priority:

This all becomes chaotic for your employees and results in inefficiency. In turn this can result in your business not flourishing and losing potential clients.
Not using right tool:
Not using the right calendar can be the biggest mistake you can ever make. If the calendar does not add value to your employees’ schedule then they are very likely to get frustrated and not work properly.
Hence, choosing the right calendar which has needed functionalities is an important thing for you as well as your employees.
Lack of communication:
