Comidor provides a fully interactive calendar where you can monitor your activities (tasks, meetings, assignments, events, etc) and orders (assigned tasks) on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. You can view your group tasks and the organizations’ non-private tasks. Comidor Calendar offers a workload overview for an individual or a team in terms of time which enables improved scheduling.
