Check Other User's Calendar Macro


D

Dan

Here is my scenario: I work for a not-for-profit company with no budget for purchasing any new apps or software. We do not have Exchange Server and use Outlook 2002. Two people in the office want to share there calendar info so that they can book appointments without having to always contact each other. We have Windows Server 2003 R2.

Is there a macro that would copy user A's calendar to a folder on our server (N:) and have that same calendar accessed by user B?

Any information would be greatly appreciated. We have limited technical knowledge and no money to purchase exchange server or 3rd party apps. Please help me answer this question. Thanks..

Here are some ideas on sharing in a non-Exchange environment. Most will cost
money. That's just the way of it. http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/share.asp

Windows 2003 server includes WSS 3.0 (I think - maybe 2.0) which will let
you set up a SharePoint site where you can post your calendar information
and allow access to others in your organization. You may want to read up on
SharePoint first before trying it or you can post to a SharePoint group for
assistance.

WSS is free and very useful, especially to small organizations. (WSS =
Windows SharePoint Service).

You may not realize it, but Microsoft has charity pricing available.
Your local Microsoft partner can assist you with charity license
acquisitions.

SBS 2008 is $375, for example ($250 without SA). Includes Exchange.

http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/licensing-options/for-industries.aspx#tab=4
- SBS comes with 5 CALs, so it qualifies for volume licensing.

One easy Microsoft option is to use
http://windowslive.com/Online/Calendar with the Calendar connector
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...B1-DF0A-46E1-AA93-7D4870871ECF&displaylang=en

Alternatively, Microsoft Office Live could be a good solution. It
leverages the Sharepoint solution without bogging you down in Sharepoint
complexities. http://office.live.com

Another option is Google calendar connector to Outlook
