A powerful feature of iCal is the ability to include data from other calendars
into your calendar. It is dynamic. As events are changed in the other calendars
the changes will show on your calendar. This will show you an active
demonstration of this feature.
iCal provides a means to see a matrix view for multiple calendars vs. hours
of the day. This allows you to easily schedule the use of resources whether these are
conference rooms or oscilliscopes. At a glance you can easily see what is available
for specific hours of the day.
Some calendars are designed to allow anyone to add events, but the events do
not appear on the calendar until approved by an authorized person. This demo
will show how this feature works.
TripleSync is a PC client program that
provides a means to synchronize your PDA running Palm OS with the iCal web calendar.
iCal allows you to define calendars that will reject an event that would
overlap a time range of an existing event. This will prevent you from booking
conflicting appointments. iCal also provides a means to search for your desired
appoinment time across multiple calendars.
An iCal calendar can be configured to allow those who view the calendar to
signup for email reminders to specific calendar events. This feature can be applied
in numerous ways. For example people can be reminded of up coming sporting events or
when they need pick up tickets for an evening performance.
