Good news for all Keep&Share members who use Android devices — we just released the Keep&Share app for Android, now available on Google Play! 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.
Just click or tap on this button (or the image above) to download it, or visit the Google Play store and search for “Keep&Share” (no spaces). Here’s how to search for the app on Google Play.
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.
This is our second mobile app — click here to download Keep&Share for iPhone, iPad, and iPod. And, users on any other device can continue to use nearly all the functionality of the mobile app when you use our mobile website.

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:
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:

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!
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.

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.

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!
Got any questions or feedback? Email email@example.com — your comments are what keep us improving Keep&Share!
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:
Give it a try in your account to see if it’s something your particular calendar works well this way. It’s also available in embedded calendars.

Event Tags make it easier for you to tell what’s going on at-a-glance, and you can even show/hide events by tags, to filter your calendar views. If you embed your calendar on a website, you can even allow your web visitors to filter by tag!

You might have noticed some updates to the To Do app in your Keep&Share account recently — it still has great features you're used to, like drag-n-drop reordering of tasks, the ability to set priorities, and start & due dates with the option to turn on email/text message reminders — but now with a cleaner, easier-to-use visual interface.

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.

Compare Calendars in Side-by-Side View
Your needs drive our product development, so here's something customers like you have been asking for:
Compare multiple calendars literally side-by-side in one calendar view. It's easy now to tell who's available at that time, and avoids double-booking.
Here are 5 appointment schedules viewed Side-by-Side:
Whether you need to compare schedules of staff, conference rooms, field crews or 5 pieces of million dollar biotech lab equipment, use Side-by-Side view to see up to 10 schedules with the time slots lined up on one screen where you can instantly see available booking times. Side-by-Side PDF printouts look great too!

'Automatic Backups' for Calendars. Ever worry about losing important calendar information due to accidental deletions? Our new Automatic Backups feature is for you! It allows you to schedule automatic calendar backups as frequently as every night. It also gives you an easy 'restore' command to revert your calendar to any of up to 20 previous versions. Backups are also useful if you just want to have a 'time machine' to view a previous version of your calendar.
The Automatic Backups function is available only for Premium account holders. Click here to view a summary of the many benefits of Premium accounts for Calendar users. View this help screen or Watch this video to learn more.

KeepandShare Photo has powerful new features, all oriented around keeping your photo library and albums 'neat and tidy'.
A new 'Manage Photos' screen allows you to perform bulk delete & edit operations on your photos. Search for all photos that match your criteria and you can then delete them all, or apply an edit operation such as assigning tags to them. Just click on Photo Library, then on 'Manage Photos'.
Easily find 'orphan' photos. When a photo has not been placed in any albums, we call it an 'orphan'. The 'New Album' and 'Manage Photo' commands both now include a checkbox to show only photos that do not appear in any albums.
Upload 10mb original photo files. Premium accounts now have a new option - whenever you 'edit' a photo, you can now upload the original image file, even if it's 10mb in size! The uploaded original is associated with the photo in your library and albums and subsequently available as a 'Download Original' button.
'Deep Delete'. When you edit an album, you now have the option to not only delete the album, but also all the photos in the album, by using the 'Delete Album & Photos' button. All photos in the album will be completely removed from your Photo Library.
All four of these features were suggested by users in August, and now they are part of KeepandShare. It's your suggestions and bug reports (email@example.com) that make KeepandShare so useful. Thanks!

Embedded Calendars Now Speak 12 Languages. It's easy as pie to copy a code script onto any web page to publish a KeepandShare calendar on any website, blog, or web page. But what if your website is in Spanish, French, or German? No problem, we've just added the ability for embedded calendars to display all their buttons and menu text in 12 different languages. You can pick your language from a drop down menu when you are getting your embedded calendar code. The language is specified by a simple parameter '&lang=fr' for French, for example.

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.
There is also a powerful twist on hide details that allows you to have two different versions of your calendar details - a private version and a public version. We call this command our 'Private | Public Details' feature. Learn more by consulting the page of samples.

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). Check this box and then the generated emails will be copied to every KeepandShare user with whom you have shared the calendar. This is a great way to send out group reminder emails!

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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) that make KeepandShare so useful. Thanks!

Your KeepandShare Calendar Can Now Email You. Repeating events can now email you a reminder of the event. For instance, if your Mother's birthday is on April 7th, you can set up her birthday repeating event to email you several days in advance every year - so you have time to send a card and flowers. 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.

Also, event view hides empty days, so you can see more of your schedule. To use event view, click on 'Events' on your calendar's blue command bar, or the 'month view' drop down on the yellow bar. Try it now! Event view is an especially good view choice for embedding into your websites or blogs.
Many of you have asked for a way to customize the calendars you embed into your websites and blogs. So we've also just added embeddable 'day scrolls'. Click on 'Customize & Share' and choose 'Create Embedded Day Scroll', which gives you a configuration screen. You'll be able to control color, layout, size and more. It's fun to experiment with since your design instantly updates with each change. When you have a design you like, copy out the link code to embed your custom calendar design on your web page.
