my manager needs a diary that she can post on the net. she moves around a lot and she doesn't want to take a big diary with her.

she also wants other people to be able to see the diary, and also to be able to post meetings as well.

is there a way that you can do this? it doesn't have to be fancy, just an xl spreadsheet, or even just a word doc.

is is possible to use outlook in this way?

Why aren't you on Yahoo? [cry baby]

how about just starting a blog?

seems like a good idea, at least on the surface - nearly everyone can post to it as comments

Not OT. That's a pretty good suggestion there, Jessycat [Smile] Yahoo Calendar mightn't be a bad solution to cheezi's manager's problem. Web based, can be viewed by other people if set up right, and can even sync to a Palm, apparently. I haven't looked at it in a while, but check it out.

Outlook Web Access might be the answer - as long as your boss is using Windoze...

Are you running Exchange Server?

Cheezi, if she's got a mac no problem. You will need a web server running PHP with WEBDav and a natty program called php i-calendar, which is open source, free and not a huge PITA to set up. if i get a lunch break today I'll have a google and see if you can do the same with anything on windoze.

yahoo calendar seems good. you can set it so anyone can see it, and authorised people can change it and add meetings to it (on second thoughts maybe authorised should be allowed only to delete meetings?)

thanks for the suggestions
