Three Exciting Updates to Your Fastmail Calendar 

New Years’ is the time for making plans! We are excited to announce that we have made some updates to Fastmail’s calendar to help you along the way.

“We all wish we had more time. Your calendar can’t give you more hours, but it can help you make the most of the hours you have. Scheduling time with people, calling out important events so they’re easy to spot, helping your contacts let you know if they can make it — all of it is to let your calendar work better for you,” said Fastmail COO, Helen Horstmann-Allen.

This year, Fastmail is enhancing your calendar experience. Your unique workflow calls for the most powerful and efficient planning features. Our calendar partners provide the tools necessary to help you reclaim your time and achieve your goals. Now, the best in email pairs perfectly with some of the best in scheduling.

“We have joined forces with a group of values-driven calendar and productivity partners who share our commitment to being active participants in the larger email, contacts, and calendar ecosystems,” said Fastmail’s Marketing Manager, Roland Nichols.

Now, Fastmail calendars are easier to use and more feature-rich than ever!

1. Add a splash of color to your events

Calendar Personalization is here!

Do you have a doctor’s appointment, a child’s art show, or a job interview coming up? At Fastmail, we understand how important it is to keep track of it all.

So, now all Fastmail customers can add individual event colors to calendar events to help you quickly identify unique events in your calendar at a glance.

2. Send our updated invitations to anyone

We’ve refreshed our invites, so that important information is easy to find.

Quickly scan invites to see what information has changed, who you have been invited by, and who has RSVP’d yes or no.
