Producing School Calendar
So the premise is this, we have a school calendar that it produced that has all the important dates in, match fixtures, UCAS dealines, trips, talks etc etc. I've got it set up nicely in a shared folder on our mail server, some people use Outlook some use the web interface for our mail server and people can add it what they want. Sounds OK? Apparently not.
What people want, unfortunately including out deputy head, is to be able to see an "overview" of a month so that they can "see what else is going on and how their activity impacts on everything". Also just switching it to month view is not good enough because if there are a lot of events it doesn't show everything. you also have to scroll up and down if you use week view!:rolleyes:
Now my initial reaction is "How on earth do you expect your comptuer to display such a vast quantity of information on screen? is there something stopping you flicking through each day around the point you want your talk and picking somewhere?"
However I was wondering what processes/software people use to create their calandars, is the request to see so much info unrealistic?
