Multi-Calendar View

Hi Folks,

is it possible to set up an outlook view (outlook98) showing several calanders at once.

what i am doing is using exchange mailboxes for a set of four meeting rooms.  users 'book' meeting rooms by using outlook meeting organiser, and server-side 'agent' automatically processes these requests and accepts/declines accordingly.

problem is that booking may also be taken by phone, and i want to provide the organiser with a view showing all four calanders side by side for the purposes of easily finding a spare time-slot.

and if she could drag&drop between them, now that *would* be cool ;-)

thanks and regards.

As far as I know, not with Outlook 98.  Outlook 2000 on the other hand has a cool little Multi-Calendar Viewer (up to 6) that would solve the view part.  Not sure about the drag and drop.

The viewer add-in is available at http://officeupdate.microsoft.com in the Outlook download section.

There are also a bunch of applications specifically designed to help people who book multiple rooms. See http://www.slipstick.com/calendar/scheduleall.htm.

What you can do is you can add all this calendars to your Folder List and/or Outlook Bar. And then open them i a New Window.  If you then "Tile Windows" you will have them i 4 seperate windows

Also see Collaboration Data Objects (CDO) on MS's website.  There's a Helpdesk Application (taken straight out of a MS Press book "Programming with Outlook and Exchange" with code to do exactly what you (we) want.

I'm wading through that today...

I installed the 6 calendar number mentioned above, and it does exactly what it says, though I'd hate to have to use so clunky of an interface daily.

somewhat 'klunky' but nonetheless does the job.
