Hello Whiz kids,

We use a small network at my office and sadly, I am the closest thing they have to a computer geek. If they only knew how pathetic that is!

Anyway, I am wondering if there is a way of all the computers on the network being able to access the appointments diary. If so, what software would you recommend and how would one go about doing this? At the moment we use a ACTUAL diary that sits on the desk.

Perhaps my question is too broad, but any tips would be appreciated.

Regards

Constantine.

I believe that you can do this with Outlook - but it's way beyond my ability!
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

This may be what your looking for, Intranet/Web Calendar 1.1. You will need MS Access or download MySQL if you do not have the Microsoft database program. MySQL is also freeware.

Assuming only a few people will be using a common calendar, there are several easy possibilities that should be investigated.
1. If everyone has internet access, then use Google Calendar.
2. If everyone has a spreadsheet application, then you could use a common spreadsheet to maintain a calendar.
3. I think that Mozilla's Sunbird might work, as well as Outlook.
Cheers,
John

Well I was thinking LAN, but John the best idea if all the computer have the internet. I use the Yahoo calendar to share with my son's Cub Scout Pack. It works great and as long as you have access to a computer you will always have your schedule and contacts. If and employ leaves or is terminated you just remove their email from the shared list. At least that is how it works with Yahoo.

Though outlook this is possible and you can share your calendar with anyone you wish that is part of the active directory. This will work if you use Outlook 2000 and 2003. I have implemented this many times and if you need help with getting it to work on outlook this is not a problem.
