Keeping collaboration going requires getting people in the same places at the same time. Scheduling is therefore a key ingredient for the successful promotion of collaboration in organizations.
Kolab calendars can be shared between people making it easy for teams and their leaders 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' calanders when making scheduling decisions.
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.
