Remember, back in the day, when we first got email and we needed to remember a password? One password. Then, we signed up for a chat somewhere, messenger to talk to other kids when the teacher wasn’t looking, and ebay back when a search gave 6 results.
Now, every website we use requires a password. To keep your login information safe, and so you don’t need to remember every single one (or -eeek- use the same password for everything), use a password manager like LastPass.
LastPass can be put on your phone, tablet and embedded into the browser on your computer. Enter your master password once, and LastPass remembers AND INPUTS all of your login information for you.
With the business version, you can even have your employees log into systems without remembering, seeing, or changing the passwords.
You remain in control of the login information - they get the benefit of easy access. It’s a very safe place for your passwords.
Connect this schedule directly to your calendar, allowing customers to book time with you based on what times you have available.
Redundancy at its best.
