Availability Viewer Sample Form
The Availability Viewer is a Microsoft Outlook
form to show you who (or what) is free and who is busy at any given
time. It is intended to be just a viewer, not a form for scheduling
meetings. You can use it to track the schedule of a group of people
who work together or to check when a conference room is free for a
meeting. It requires Microsoft Exchange Server
or access to an Internet free/busy server.
The latest version (ver 2.01, 4 Sep 1998) has been substantially
improved by Siegfried Weber:
- The Send command on the File menu is now disabled. (Ver 2.01
makes sure it turns back on when you close the form. See Problems
- Your own name no longer appears at the top of the list of All
- For Outlook 98 users, if you create a distribution list in the
GAL named Everyone, the form will automatically expand that list
and populate the All Attendees list with its members.
- The calendar correctly displays today's date. (Thanks to David
Kane at Micro Eye.)
Note that the availability viewer is very similar
to the Group Calendar introduced in Outlook 2002.
