Tips for iCal users

43folders, the very useful "getting things done" blog has some pretty handy tips for users of Apple’s iCal software.  I’ve been using iCal rather than Entourage for almost as long as I have had my PowerBook and I love the way everything integrates so well.  Here is the intro on 43folders:

Okay, I admit it. I’ve grumbled about iCal on and off since it came out. It’s one of those things in life that makes you nuts with how it almost works. The alarm choices are amazing but there’s no way to have them added automatically. The shared calendars are great, but only one person can make changes. The snoozing sucks, notifications magically disappear, and some days, the “moist Jolly Rancher?? design motif makes me want to barf pink. Hrmph. But (and it’s a big but)…

The truth is, iCal works great with kGTD (mostly of course), and once you make your peace with the perplexing stasis of its feature set, there are some not-bad hooks and affordances hiding in its pastel, roundy corners. Here’s a few I like.
