    Default More Calendar Questions

    Our current calendar program allows users to "subscribe" to another employee's calendar through an easy search process. You give certain permissions to "everyone" and specific permissions to designated users. The procedure is clean, simple and works well.

    Our admin building has 30 conference rooms, each with its own calendar. To reserve a conference room the user simply subscribes to its calendar and makes a reservation. With an administrative population over 1,000, the system just works.

    I'm concerned how Zimbra handles a similar scenario. Based on my previous post, it seems every individual would have to query a resource calendar for every conference room and be invited to make a reservation.

    Is there a more direct way to accomplish this in Zimbra?

    Default I believe it works similarly...

    You should be able to invite the resource account to the meeting; successfully doing this will reserve the resource. You can see the resource's free/busy status either via the "Schedule" tab of the "New Appointment" dialog or by looking directly at their calendar.

    the pieces are in place as the basic html client (on mainline) can now render calendars (working on edit), it is just a matter of connecting the dots between the REST servlet and that code. I'd like to see it happen in 5.0.

    Is there any way at all to render the calendar in anything inside of an HTML page? Any code snipet or anything that can be used? Anything out there that can be put into a webpage that would read the ical file?

    I just installed a quick little solution which works nicely. I setup phpicalendar and pointed it to my calendar share URL. Voila, I have a real-time view of my calendar on the Web that I can share with anyone.

    It looks like Zimbra version 5.0 will have a more elegant solution, but thought I'd share this one anyhow. Appears to work with all ics files and may even allow for multiple calendars (definitely allows for multiple ones from the file system, but not sure about from the web).

    It took about 20 minutes to set it up.
