    Displaying many diaries... timeline? (XP desktop, exchange server)

    Dear Loungers,

    I have little experience in making Outlook into a slick and really useful tool but seem to have come up with several requirements that it can probably do - but help isn't! In this case I have seen a display of calendars for a group of people that would be really neat for us. It showed a line for each individual and their appointments - similar to when you create an appointment and book attendees but this showed the names of the appointments.

    Any advice as to how to do this?

    Many Thanks,

    Liz

    I think you're describing the same function - just with different security settings.

    Normally when you book a meeting, the other person's schedule is highlighted in Blue as "Busy".
    If they allow it, then when you hover the mouse you will see the actual meeting detail - e.g. "Meet with Liz"

    This is set by each other person. That is, for you to be able to see my calendar, I have to allow it.

    It is set by right-clicking calendar, selecting properties, and working through the security (I think) tab.
    I cannot describe it in detail because it only appears on an Exchange system and I'm currently at home.
    In effect you need to grant them read access.

    I personally set this to allow everyone read access and then spread the word as I can to people I network with.

    Andrew,

    no, this is not what I mean and I am, like you, an open book.

    This was separate to creating an appointment, it was a function which showed each "person's" activities against a timeline the window was very simple with only yje names on the vertical axis and the times/dates on the horizontal axis.

    I'm all out of ideas - but when someone replies who knows how to do it, I'll be first in queue for it too. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Well I cannot speak for Liz - but I wasn't until I got your reply <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
