Re: shared resources?
Well, for example.
I'd like to be able to set up a meeting with however many invitees. I'd
also like to specify a room from a list of available rooms. I may also
want to include a projector or some similar resource. Others would be
able to see that the room and projector were taken at that time.
There really isn't any difference between the room and projector,
they're just shared resources.
A resource could have a quantity associated with it. If my organization
has 5 projectors, rather than have projector01 - projector05, I could
simply attach a single projector to my event so long as at least one is
There could also be users who manage resources. I may request a
projector but it would be up to someone to allow it or not. This would
be the equivalent of the projector "choosing" to attend the meeting...
I may be looking beyond the scope of what groupdav is all about, but I'm
looking for a serious alternative to Exchange. I'm involved with a
local government org, ready to switch to an open source network, but
Exchanges groupware functionality is the only thing holding them back.
