The "time range" parameter let's carpoolers define how flexible they are regarding their carpooling schedule.
For instance, a time range of 15min means that the carpooler agrees to be matched with someone leaving 15min before or 15min after the time of departure he mentionned in his schedule.
The calendar is used for different reasons. First of all, it helps you visualize your weekly carpool schedule.
Then, via the calendar you can easily book and edit your carpool trips with your favourite carpoolers by cliking opn their names, or with new carpoolers by clicking on "find a carpooler". You can do that trip by trip or for the entire week at once.
Finally, booking your trips through the Djengo calendar, enables the platform to keep your history of carpooltrips in order to benefit from tax advantages and incentives, if your company chooses to reward carpoolers.
