AUTO-BOOKING OF CONNECTED RESOURCE
Sometimes booking of one specific resource always
requires booking of an additional resource. In these
cases it will simplify the process if the additional
resource can be booked automatically when the specific
resource is booked.
These auto-bookings are defined in the Calendar
Browser Settings, under a new tab called Auto-Booking.
Here all the resource calendars are listed to the
left, and the additional booking for each resource
can be selected to the right. The list is empty
by default, and the admin will add “auto-booking-rules”
AUTO-EMAIL TO SUPPLY RESPONSIBLE
When a user has booked supplies with the reservation
of a resource, Calendar Browser can now automatically
send an e-mail notification to an e-mail address
defined by the administrator.
The e-mail addresses for the notifications are defined
in the settings form together with the supplies.
A new column for e-mail address is added to the
Supplies dialog. There is also a Template dialog,
where the administrator can specify how the e-mail
notification should look if the default e-mail is
REMOVAL OF SUPPLY ITEM WITHOUT LOSING IT FROM
If an item is removed from the Supplies items list
in the earlier versions of Calendar Browser,
it was not seen in any bookings made prior to the
Now it is possible to remove an item without losing
it in a previous booking. When the administrator
removes an item from the Supplies list in the
Calendar Browser Settings, he/she will be asked
if the item should be removed from existing bookings
also. If the administrator clicks No, the item will
only be removed from the Supplies items list so
that it is not available for future bookings.
Earlier versions of Calendar Browser had
the Search function for free rooms in the Outlook
calendar view, but there was no other search alternatives.
We have now added a possibility to search the Overview
by these alternatives:
- a given date and time
- a given date and time sorted by host
EXTRA BOOKING INFO
It is now possbile to let users select information
about host and attedees from dropdowns in the booking
We have added dropdowns for selection of:
- Name and e-mail/company/department of the
- Number of participants
These dropdowns will be displayed in a new task
pane in the appointment form if a checkbox in the
Calendar Browser settings is activated and
names and other information have been entered in
the settings by the administrator.
E-mail addresses/companies/departments of the participants,
will be shown automatically after the name.
The host of the meeting will be fetched from the
Outlook profile and shown as default, but another
host may be selected.
When the participants has been selected this info
is shown in the Overview. A new Booking summaries
list will show the host and attendees of each meeting
for a specified day.
REGISTRATION OF CHANGES MADE TO BOOKINGS
When a box in the Calendar Browser settings
is enabled a log file will be added in a subfolder
in the Calendar Browser network folder. In
that file the administrator can see when bookings
have been changed and by whom and what changes have
HIGHLIGHT OF BOOKINGS CHANGED WITH SHORT NOTICE
In the Calendar Browser Overview, reservations
which have been made or modified at short notice
may be highlighted with an hourglass.
This feature is enabled in the Calendar Browser
Settings. The time interval between the booking
or change and the actual booking time for highlighting
to occur is set by the administrator.
A few users reported an error due to the missing
dll file "System.Web.Extension.dll". This dll is
now added to the Calendar Browserclient tool
