Benefits

Skedi unifies each family member’s events from work, home, or school.

Skedi saves you time and let’s you assign activities to parents, babysitters, or friends.
You’ll be confident they’ll take responsibility. Unlike other family calendars, you can delegate events such as appointments, drop-off and pickups, parents-night-out, and so on. If you can put it on a calendar, you can Skedi-it.

Skedi allows you to continue to use your favorite electronic calendar.
Distinct from other calendaring services, it syncs with and your device’s calendars (e.g., Microsoft Exchange, Google Calendar, Yahoo!…).

Also, you’ll be able to view your Skedi events in your favorite calendar..
Is that cool or what? Skedi events always appear as “Booked by Skedi” in your preferred calendar.

We built Skedi with ease-of-use in mind.

Notifications

Your Notifications

Other parents, babysitters, and friends can accept or decline delegations and invitations in the Notifications tab. Since your kids are unlikely to be sporting an iPhone, events sent to kids are automatically accepted. Moreover, you’ll receive an email for every new invitation and when family members reply to events that you organize.

What’s Your Favorite Calendar App?

Skedi syncs with any iOS calendar (e.g., Microsoft Exchange, Yahoo!, iCloud…).

Plan dinner out and book your babysitter

This demo illustrates how you can plan a dinner out with your partner and delegate watching the kids to your babysitter. Three easy steps:


1. Create a dining out event and invite your partner.

2. Make a babysitting event and delegate it to your babysitter.

3. Your babysitter receives the delegation request and accepts it. Then the delegated event is removed from your calendar.

How it works

Family of four

Jennifer and Michael Smith have two kids, Ethan and Emily. The Smith Family has a lot in common with many of today’s busy families. Both parents work, and the two kids have lots of activities. Jennifer and Michael both schedule events, and they share childcare responsibilities with their babysitter Sarah. The Smith’s are busy!

In spite of their full calendar, they can keep track of their schedule even when they’re on the go. They all use Skedi on their iPhones; it keeps them organized!

Jennifer keeps work and personal calendars on her iPhone and subscribes to group calendars for school, sport teams and scouts. Michael also keeps work and personal calendars on his iPhone and subscribes to group calendars.

The Skedi app keeps the Smith family calendar in the cloud. All the family members and babysitters (with Skedi on their iPhone or iPod touch) can keep track of what’s going on. Moreover, Skedi knows everyone’s actual availability because, in addition to Skedi events, it reads Michael and Jennifer’s work and personal calendars and publishes their busy times to Skedi. However, these non-Skedi events always appear as private to other family members.
