Planning A Weekend Trip With The Not So Tech-Savvy? Try Which Weekend

20Mar08

I come from a very large family.  Let me give you some stats:  4 brothers, 2 sisters, 8 nieces, 3 nephews, 1 Mom, 1 Dad.  Yes, I’m Irish.  The point is, that when we want to plan a weekend when we can all get together, it’s a complete mess of emails (we aren’t all that into the phone).  There are lots of event planning services out there but none of us want to create profiles and sign up for new services – we just don’t have the time.  A basic service that allows you to quickly see what weekend everyone is free and lets you do all of the actual planning is what we need.  Enter Which Weekend.

Which Weekend is the most simple tool I’ve come across for trying to find the best weekend for a group to get together.  You’ll notice that I didn’t say “planning” a weekend trip.  It’s used for one thing, figuring out which weekend everyone is free.  One person is the administrator and they send out the initial email to everyone with a date range to choose from.  The recipients just need to click on a link in their email and they’re automatically logged in.  From there, they just check off the dates they’re free and then they can get back to doing whatever they were doing.  The planning of the trip is up to the group but often the biggest hassle is finding a time when people can get together.   Here’s my screencast tour of Which Weekend:
