“Plan-It” is a social networking application that takes the idea of a simple calendar into a more efficient means of communicating and updating schedules on a more social-sharing platform. Within the app, users could easily add and modify events on their daily schedule, be wary of all alarms and reminders, all while being able to instantly share your schedule with fellow users and non-users alike so that scheduling group events no longer requires the dead space of having to find a time that is available for all parties. PLAN-IT users can easily view available times with a feature enabling schedule overlap, so that multiple schedules can be cross referenced and an available time can be determined, instantly.
Description of Product
- Calendar– Work, School, Social. Different times can be set to “private” or “public” for when you want to keep your schedule to yourself, or for when you want to promote your availability to fellow users.
- Alarms/Reminders- No more fiddling around with all of the stock alarms and reminder settings on cell phones, Plan-It would host these reminders so that you need not any other planner/agenda other than this app.
- Sync- with school planners (such as CARMEN, buckeyelink, etc) so that homework assignments/due dates, examination dates, and class syllabi are uploaded, giving students the opportunity to properly allot time for their assignments, whilst viewing their work schedule and forthcoming social plans on the same platform.
- For Social Use
o Those with Plan-It app can then view their schedule, and decide whether to attend (add to schedule) or decline (do not add to schedule). Users can also add comments to the event, offering a chance to make additional requests/inquiries, and the host could manipulate the details of the event at any point, with the event attendees being notified thereafter.
o People without app get link to event invitation (without ability to comment/interact), but are given option to download app for full functionality.
- Possible Expansions
o Web Page for expanded user interaction and downloadable material
o This app could be synced with;
o School websites/Planners
o Any Group, Company or Organization looking to advertise/promote an event, all while relatively gauging the turnout.
o Bank accounts—offering featured statistics such as spending habits (US Mint), current balance, budget plan, and projected income for the next pay period (based on work schedule and projected wages from such work)
o Diet Plans/Workout Regimes– add meal plans and specific workout routines to your Plan-It, ensuring that they are always on your mind!
