Save time and effort
Finding out availability options for people attending the events has never been so simple. Create an event in your calendar, add attendees from the address book, click to display free/busy information. Free/busy will be shown for everybody who has one of the supported online calendars and shares the availability information. Then adjust date and time to a slot when everybody is free and save the event to send the invitations.
|3e Calendar can access and retrieve availability information for users of following online calendar systems.|
|3e Calendar||Google Calendar||VMWare Zimbra||IceWarp||Kerio Connect||Bedework||DAViCal|
Just turn on
3e Calendar is a standalone calendar system. It just adds calendar functionality to whatever you currently use – there is no need to change email system or database server or any other piece of your infrastructure. Setup calendar server, create accounts for your users (or synchronize the accounts with your corporate LDAP directory), install plugins to their favorite calendar applications and you are ready to schedule effectively.
More time to work
Remember answering a phone call by looking into the calendar to tell when you are available? With 3e Calendar will be your availability information (of course free/busy only not event details) automatically accessible by others – no special calendar links exchange in advance is necessary. Everyone knowing your email will be able to get the very same information you would provide over a phone or an email completely without your involvement.
Know more, know better
Past events in the calendar are valueable as well as those in the future. Get last month time sheet, analyse how the employees travel to the meetings, build calendar reports to gather usefull information. 3e Calendar provides an interface to integrate the calendar with other corporate systems or query and get desired calendar data to use them in any other way.
See in action
