The 5 OnTime Group Calendar Business Process Objectives
1. Scheduling: Minimise process time and help the user find the earliest possible available time
2. Delegation: Provide access to act on consolidated scheduling data at all time
3. Match talent to time: Allow the user to immediately identify candidates who are both qualified and available.
4. Improve customer service: Identify expertise and availability for a relevant and timely response
5. Always available: Always be available whether working from the office or on the road.
■ Create: appointments and meetings with invitees, rooms and equipment
■ Groups: Have your whole organization at your fingertips. To move your focus between departments and projects is only one click away. Combine this with the power of making your own groups for your add-hoc needs.
■ Legends: display clusters of similar calendar entries in different colours, based on sets of criteria. Legends provide users of the calendar interfaces with a better overview of colleagues’appointments and an ability to filter by type.
■ Business Card: Provides rich information for the selected person. Further the business card provides you with actions such as mail, phone message, etc.
■ Advanced Search: Allows the user to search and filter. The search function works on names, departments, and tittles and of course also subjects.
■ Expand to 24 Hour: You can also zoom in on every view in order to get a full 24-hour look for planning.
■ Flexible Views: View your colleagues by day(s), week(s), or use the vacation view to plan your departments summer holidays. All views are type-ahead enabled to allow ease of navigation.
■ Drag’n Drop: Provides maximum scheduling power. This allows you to create or edit appointments and meeting with invitees, rooms and resources.
■ Outlook-Plugin: With the new OnTime Add-on for Outlook you have all functionalities from OnTime web interface.
The standard Outlook client includes basic group calendaring functionality out of the box. Whereas this group calendar works well for small teams of 5-10 people it lacks easy of use, scalability and speed.
OnTime group calendar embedded in the Outlook client adds a scalable, feature rich and fully integrated group calendar experience. There is no practical limit to the number of users you can show in OnTime within Outlook and the experience is really fast as all calendar information is pre-fetched
