I created a "vacation calendar" for our dept. I would like to be able to
have members add their vacations to that calendar, and at the same time add
it to their own personal calendar. I tried adding it to the group calendar
and sending an appt. to my own personal calendar, but it doesn't add it to
the personal calendar. Any other ideas?
Of course, you can always send Invitations, but to be able to sync your items
to a shared calendar that is not assigned to one person in particular, but to
the group is so helpful. And to have that calendar then sync back with each
other in the group would be incredibly helpful. That way you don't have to
open each person's calendar individually...it's all there.
I have checked the link that
John gave you, but it didn't work out because
it's not compatible with the server I use. I think that Outlook should be
made in a way to allow a user to add soemthing on someone else's calendar
with the option ot accepting or regretting of course. (The users are the
persons working in the same department for example)
Unfortunately, this is for a group
of users who are out in the field most of
the time and won't be going to each others' appt, but just need to know
how/where to get ahold of each other if needed. So having each others'
schedules available in one place but not having to do anything to get to them
is what we are needing. But I'll check out the exchangegroupcalendar. Thank
http://www.exchangegroupcalendar.com will do most of that.
However it does
not yet support creating items in the public folde rto be synced back to the
personal calendars. Exchange server offers invitations for that (type a
distribution list name in the Invite tab of the appointment where all team
members are in the dist.list)
Team members could share a calendar on Exchange. Each
time they added
something to their own individual calendar it would synch with the Shared
Calendar. The appt card would have a place to designate if this would a Team
appt or an Indiviaul appt. As items were added to the Shared calendar if
they involved the Team, they would be synched back down to the individual
The Shared Calendar would be stored in the Public folders so that all who
had permission could see it. You could sort/query by member of the group so
that each member's appts could be displayed by their name/initials.
OWA would offer these same features.
