Getting people in the same places at the same time can be tricky with today's busy lifestyle. Scheduling is a key ingredient for the successful promotion of collaboration in organizations as well as keeping up with those you care about.
You can add as many attendees as you wish to events and have email invites sent out to them when they are added or removed, or when the event itself changes. This works with any email address, so the people you invite don't even have to be Kolab Now users. If they are using standards-compliant software, when they accept your invitation it will generate a response that is automatically recorded in your calendar event.
Kolab calendars can be shared1 between Kolab Now users, making it easy for family members, friends and work teams to get an overview of activity. These calendars can be viewed as a single unified agenda or individually one at a time. Adding or removing calendars from the viewing list is so fast and easy that Kolab users often find themselves quickly consulting ther colleagues' calendars when making scheduling decisions.
1Sharing features work only between email addresses in the same domain name (the part after the '@' symbol). Accounts using custom domain names are therefore only able to share with other emails also using that same custom domain name.
Free / Busy
When inviting others to events, the free/busy view is a time saver. It provides immediate feedback as to who is available when to allow events to be scheduled when people are most likely to be available. This information display respects privacy settings, showing more details when access is granted or only "free" or "busy" when access is limited. This makes it possible to offer free/busy views to the entire organization (or parts of it) that include management without revealing the details of their schedule.
By delegating responsibility for a calendar to another person, scheduling can be turned into a team affair. Assistants are able to actually assist and teams that engage in co-scheduling can do so directly in their colleague's calendars.
