My family uses Chandler just the way you are describing. Each individual
has a calendar and Chandler makes it easy to view each as part of a unified
The big win for me is that whether I'm home, at work or out of town, I have
a way to check upcoming events to be sure I don't schedule something in
conflict (like missing a Parent-Teacher conference).
My mother and in-laws are also local and they love having a way to see
upcoming events like the grandchildren's concerts and dance recitals.
Prior to Chandler (we've been using it for over a year now) we maintained a
paper-based calendar (really the school calendar with our notes). I can't
imagine going back to that.
