Calendar Sharing





welshsteve
Hi everyone.

Are there any free calendar sharing applications/servicesthat can be used by small businesses?

Basically, I'm going to be part of a small business and can't afford Microsoft Exchange server (or similar) for managing our email, calendar, global contacts etc.

We can all have IMAP email accounts, and can setup an easy database to store our contacts in. But we also need a shared calendar that can be accessed by anyone on the local network, and ideally via the internet also on laptops, mobile phones etc.

Is anybody aware of a free, or cheap solution for this?

Sunbird for the calendar software. To share the calendar, you have a lot of options. It's probably easiest to just make a small file server to save the calendar files.

So if I install Sunbird on everyone's machine, and store the calendar file on the server, can each user then subscribe to that calendar file?

Do I need special software on the server, or does Sunbird have a server edition?

Also, can more than one person access the calendar file at the same time? (HIGHLY unlikely they will access the same calendar item at the same time).

Thanks

I'm not sure, it's been a while since I've done it. You can store the calendar file on a server so everyone can use it. I'm not sure what happens when two people want to access the same calendar item at the same time though.

Google has a pretty good calendar, and it is free for most uses. Haven't played with it too much but seems easy to share and to send event to people as invites.

Yes. Google Apps will probably be a good choice for you.
