That would be useful, wouldn't it :-( Here we run up against all kinds
of ignorance on my part. I have not been a user of this kind of
application myself, which hinders my understanding of what people want
from it. I know we have lots of clients who would like an alternative
to Exchange for "shared calendaring" or "group calendars," but I don't
have a fine grained understanding of all the features they want.
Lets start with what seems basic. A calendar that multiple users can
see and some can edit, though maybe not all are allowed to edit.
Thanks for the response. I appreciate the help. This software could
fill a gaping hole in the services we provide.
