I am working with a Google Calendar and we plan to use it as a way to share our company information like birthdays, special events and also conferences that employees are attending. The idea being the whole company, which uses Exchange can subscribe to the calendar and see exactly what everyone else is doing. Exchange had some limitations and we could not use it.
Ultimately Google Calendars worked well up until it was requested that when the owner of the calendar put in a new calendar event it would email the whole company a reminder just before the event was to take place. The issue is, the owner is not the whole company and can't be because they (being the company) would end up getting every email bit of correspondence from google and so on. Essentially our HR person will be managing this calendar.
Ultimately I am looking for a solution, (software or whatever) that allows the company to see a calendar in their outlook and mobile devices but also be able to get a a email at a specified time that a particular event is going to happen. So for instance is so and so is having a birthday the next day I want the system to send everyone an email at 9am that same day.
Would google Calendar do this. Assuming we are not all google calendar and won't be. Or, anyone know of solutions that do something similar.
