image is not displayed; Share button in the blue bar

The controls for your sharing & privacy are now identical across all apps, and additional options such as “Direct Access Links” (the ability to privately share an item with non-K&S users without making the item fully “Public”) have been added. Click the "Share" button in the blue bar on any page of your Keep&Share account to access the new sharing & privacy controls.

Please watch this video walk-through to learn how to use the new control:

The new “Direct Access Link” feature is also available in Solo & Team accounts — this allows you to share a private calendar, file, or other item with people who don’t have a Keep&Share account, without having to make it “Public”. Learn more about “Direct Access Links” in this help article.

“Send Message” makes collaborating & sharing simpler and more useful

We’ve just launched the newest sharing & collaboration tool for all Keep&Share users: “Send Message”. With this feature, you can now send a custom message to your fellow Keep&Share users from inside your account — you can just share a note or reminder with someone, or you can attach a calendar, document, or other file to the message.

You’ll see this link in your Blue Bar, throughout your account:

Image showing the Send Message button in your blue bar

Just click that “Send Message” link, write your note, choose the recipients, and hit “Send”! They’ll get an email right away, and you never had to leave your web page.

And, if you’ve uploaded your custom logo to Keep&Share, your message recipients will see your logo in the messages you send them.

Watch this video tour now to see how you can use “Send Message” in your account:

Your questions & ideas are what keep us improving Keep&Share! And if you have any questions or feedback about “Send Message”, don’t hesitate to get in touch — just click here to send us an email.

Introducing “Invite-to-Meeting” — the latest update to your Keep&Share calendars

Now, you can add a meeting to your calendar & invite Keep&Share users on your team to the meeting. They’ll get an email message and can RSVP — they can even add a personal message with their response.

You see everyone’s RSVP status, whether they’ve accepted, declined, or not-yet-responded. Or, you can make their attendance “Required”, and say so in the meeting invite. You can check up on invitees’ responses, and send reminders + follow-up messages to your participants!

Watch this video tour now to see how “Invite-to-Meeting” works! It’s live in your calendars now:

You can also visit the “Invite-to-Meeting” section of our Help Center for more detailed FAQs and instructions. And if you have any questions or feedback, don’t hesitate to get in touch! Click here to send us an email.

Comparing Schedules (and Avoiding Mistakes) Just Got Easier

Side-by-Side View, which lets you compare multiple calendars’ schedules as columns side-by-side, has just gotten an upgrade — now, you can see these schedules side-by-side for 15 days or 30 days, instead of just 1 day!

Each column is one calendar (pulled in from your Keep&Share account), and each row is one day.

This can make arranging staff schedules simpler, help you reserve rooms without conflict, or make it simpler to plan out multiple sites’ events.

Side-by-Side View works with Drag-n-Drop (yep, you can even drag events from one calendar to another in this view!) and with the Self-Book system, which you could use to let people reserve times on any of the visible schedules, book appointments, or sign up for classes.

If you have questions about Side-by-Side View, or combining it with other calendars or Self-Book, send us an email — we’d love to help!

Image is not displayed: Click here to visit the App Store and download the Keep&Share app

Good news for all of you Keep&Share members who use the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad — we just released the Keep&Share app, now available on the App Store!

You’ll be able to recognize most of the functionality from our long-standing mobile website, but now your experience will be even smoother, especially when you’re switching between apps or logging in. The app also remembers the last calendar or file you were looking at, and will take you right back there.

So, just click or tap on the button above to download the app, or visit the App Store and search for “Keep&Share” (no spaces). Here’s how.

We are counting on our Keep&Share members to let us know if we can improve! So, please email us if you notice that something is broken, or want to recommend a change.

“What about Android?” We are also working on an Android app (stay tuned for that release). In the meantime, users on any device can continue to use nearly all the functionality of the mobile app when you use our mobile website — and Android users can save it as an app-like icon on your home screen.

Cheers,
The Keep&Share Team

NEW: Edit overlays without leaving your calendar — even Drag-n-Drop

We’ve just added some new functionality to your account. If you use calendar overlays in your account, you can now edit their events directly from your own calendar — without having to leave & visit the original source.

You can even use Drag-n-Drop to change the time or date of events in an overlay! The changes will go into effect in the original calendar instantly. This works for calendars from your own account or someone else’s, as long as you have Edit Rights.

Did you know Keep&Share has been around
for 10 years?

Over 2.5 million users, 6 different tools, and hundreds of improvements & feature additions later, we are stronger than ever & enjoying serving dedicated users like you.

Which is why we decided to celebrate our birthday by giving you one of our most-requested new features:

Drag-n-Drop now works in your calendars!

We’re pretty excited show you how to drag events from one day to another, from one time to another, and even change how long an event lasts — all without opening the Event Editor.

Image not displayed: GIF animation of Drag-n-Drop

You can use Drag-n-Drop to move an event from one day to another in our Week, Month, and Event views.

In Day View, though, you can do even more — if you turn on your Day Grid, you can change when an event starts & ends, or how long it lasts, with just a click & drag.

If you use Side-by-Side View, you can even drag an event from one calendar to another!

Here’s a short video tour of the new feature — we hope you enjoy it!

You can learn more about the new Drag-n-Drop feature in this article in our support portal, and you can learn more about Keep&Share’s 10-year-long history on our About Us page.

Calendar Week View Just Got Better

Happy Friday! You’ve got a new view option in your Keep&Share calendars — now, you can display two weeks at a time (before, there were only options for 1 week or 4 weeks).

Now, you can have the extra space-per-day that week view provides, but you will always be able to see at least 7 days into the future, too!

Here’s an example of what it could look like for you:

Your account was not affected by Heartbleed

Over the past few days, you may have heard about a security issue in the news called Heartbleed. You'll be happy and relieved to know that Keep&Share is not — and has never been — vulnerable to this issue.

Although your Keep&Share account information is secure, you may want to change your password if you have used it at any other web site that has been affected by this issue. In fact, it is good practice to change your password from time to time.

If you want to change your password, just click 'My Account' at the top of your screen.

In the last few days we've added two new calendar enhancements to all KeepandShare accounts:

  • Day View now has 6 and 7-day layouts, in addition to the 1,2,3,4 and 5-day layouts.
  • Day Grid now has additional 'interval' options of 10, 12 and 20 minute slots, in addition to the 15 and 30 minute and 1 and 2 hour slot options.

Both of these improvements were suggested by users like you.  It's your suggestions and bug reports (support@keepandshare.com) that make KeepandShare so useful.  Thanks!

Two New Features for Paid Accounts

Change your Account Name:  Accounts with either Pro or Premium subscriptions can easily rename their accounts (learn more).  All data and all connections with other accounts are preserved.  Renaming is a great feature if you realize that your current account name isn't quite right; e.g., change your account name from 'johnsmith' to be your business name 'acme_widgets'.

Many more Folder Sets:  Premium accounts now have up to 20 folder sets in the 'Files' application (increased from a limit of 4 previously).  This gives you much more organizational flexibility.  Use "+ Add / Remove" to turn on more folder sets in your account (learn more).

Your KeepandShare Account Now Provides Online Databases

KeepandShare has a new type of 'document' called 'Tables'.  Each table is an online database: create, manage and edit web-based 'tables' with dozens or thousands of rows of information.

  • Tables are a great way to manage lists and 'flat files' of all kinds such as membership rosters, address lists, check lists, small 'databases', project data, expense logs, and more.  By keeping the information online, you can edit it directly in your account without downloading and uploading files.
  • Publish databases on any webpage by embedding tables right in the web page. Your web visitors can view, sort, scroll and print the table, whether it's 20 or 5,000 rows!
  • Tables also provide KeepandShare's terrific PDF printing support.  Also, you can easily import 'CSV' files from Excel and Filemaker.

Add a Customized Calendar to your Website

Did you know you can easily publish any KeepandShare calendar on any webpage?  You can, and it's a great way to publish public schedules, because all it takes is two steps:

  1. Copy the 'embed code' for your calendar and paste it into your web page (learn how).
  2. Thereafter, any edits you make to your calendar are instantly visible on your website.  This means non-technical users can update the calendar without needing to change the website itself.

Yesterday we added a new interactive calendar customization tool.  You can change the colors of your embedded calendar in real time with no programming.  Try the new tool by clicking on 'Customize & Share' and then 'Embed Calendar'.  Or watch this calendar embedding video.

We've just given KeepandShare a pretty substantial update.

We've worked long and hard to make this the fastest, most usable and best-looking version of KeepandShare ever. We'll continue improving KeepandShare to make it better and better for you, but here's the scoop on the top new features in KeepandShare:

  1. Gray application tabs moved to Left Panel. Click in the left panel interface to access your applications.
  2. More screen space for you. The left panel leaves more of your screen for viewing and working with your information. Click to hide the left panel
  3. Select multiple files and documents for a command. When you view a folder the files all have a check box to the left. Click in one or more of these check boxes and then give a single command such as 'Copy' or 'Share' to act on all the selected documents.
  4. Nest folders into 'folder sets' for another level of organization. The left panel provides up to 4 'folder sets' to organize your folders into groups such as 'work' and 'home'.
  5. Streamlined Visiting. The left panel's Visit Friends' Shares tab displays your friends list and everything they are sharing with you, so you can now find and access shared information faster.
  6. View all calendars and calendar overlays in left panel. The left panel displays all the calendars in your account with their assigned names, and within each calendar all overlays are displayed for easy toggling on and off.
  7. Easy renaming. By clicking you can rename calendars, folder sets and folders in the left panel.
  8. Create multiple types of documents. The 'New Document' command lets you pick from several different kinds of document such as 'rich text' and 'plain text'. More document types will be added in coming months. The right side of the New Document dialog lets you choose from reusable 'stationery'.
  9. Create and use document 'stationery' templates. You can easily define your own stationery templates so they are available for use when you create new documents.
  10. New 'Plain text' documents. Plain text documents are pure 'ASCII' documents without any formatting (similar to 'note pad' in windows). They can be edited on smart phones and ipads.
  11. Set sharing at the folder set level with so that all folders have the same sharing. This is particularly useful in the Address application where you can now share the 'A-Z' folders.
  12. Photo Library and Photo Albums have top level application tabs. Photo album and library functionality was previously combined under one 'Photo' tab - they are now separated for easier and faster access to each.
  13. Photo Library Enhancements. You can now set sharing on your Photo library to give another person access to your entire library. You can also filter by more than one tag at a time, e.g., filter to find all photos tagged with "Summer Vacation" and "Susan" and "Vermont".

June 22, 2011

HTTPS Full Session Security.

Premium accounts now use an 'HTTPS' encrypted connection for the entire time the Premium account user is logged in.

HTTPS is advanced browser encryption, and it provides excellent protection against eavesdropping.  Every page of KeepandShare is encrypted before being transmitted over the Internet.  HTTPS encryption is used by sites such as banks and online stores to protect your important personal information.

Upgrade to a Premium account if you'd like to have your all of your account communications encrypted, giving yourself the highest level of protection.

Hide Details in your Calendar Text. We're excited to announce a very cool new KeepandShare feature. KeepandShare now supports hiding details on your calendar. You can now put all of your details on your calendar without cluttering up your calendar! How? By putting your details between the the square bracket characters: "[" and "]". For example:

        11:30 lunch [John, Mary, Bob, and Sue have confirmed]

Will appear as

        11:30 lunch *

To see the details either hover your mouse over the * or click anywhere in the day box.

Group Reminder Emails Made Easy. There is now a checkbox titled 'Send a copy to all shares' on both the Repeating Events dialog and also on the calendar's 'Email this Calendar' command (in the Customize & Share screen).

March 5, 2010

We've just added green circles with a white plus sign to every day box in your calendar. They make it much easier to add repeating events. When you click on the green circle the repeating event dialog defaults to 'Daily' mode and has the 'Starting on' and 'Ending on' dates set to the same day in which you clicked. This makes it very easy to set an event on a single day.

It's your suggestions and bug reports (support@keepandshare.com) that make KeepandShare so useful. Thanks!


February 5, 2010

Your KeepandShare Calendar Can Now Email You. Repeating events can now email you a reminder of the event.

Use event reminders for regular meetings, birthdays, anniversaries, and special events of all kinds.

In addition, the calendar's new 'Email this Calendar to Me' command allows you to have up to 7 days of your calendar emailed to you on a daily or weekly basis. It's a great way to get a copy of your calendar for use in your email system or to forward to others.
