Many offices have a calendar tacked to the wall in a central
location. Employees add items such as scheduled vacations, reservations
of conference rooms, or notices about meeting, conferences, or seminars.
By using a shared calendar, employees can more efficiently coordinate
their work with that of others in the organization. WebCal
provides a Web interface to a similar shared calendar. Every
user can read what other people have added and, if the script is configured
to do it, can modify each other's entries. WebCal has two primary
views: the month view and the day view. Varying levels of security are
configurable. For example, WebCal can be made to be viewable by anyone or
by authenticated users only. Items within the calendar database can
be made to be modifiable or deletable only by the person who posts
them or by everyone.
This product is ideally suited for business people on the move who need instant access to
company or client information. It is also a great management tool for companies and organisations
in terms of project coordination, inventory control, client management and information dissemination.
