Shared Calendars: Web, Desktop, and Mobile.

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

“I need to share our corporate calendar with all my employees, but only allow some people to edit it. … I need my staff to be able to access their calendars while on the road with events updated in real time. … My secretary needs to be able to manage my calendar without having full access to my other information.  …. We have separate, overlapping groups of people who need to have multiple calendars shared with different sets of people; we need event assignment notices and reminders – can you help?”

Shared Workspaces for Collaboration

Friday, November 6th, 2009

Web-based collaborative environments, similar to Microsoft Sharepoint, are now offered by LuxSci.

For LuxSci users with a WebAide license, the widgetized “Welcome Page” area is now the “Workspaces” area.  Here, licensed users can:

  • Create any number of Workspaces with arbitrary configurations of widgets per workspace
  • Share Workspaces with other licensed users

Additionally, Workspaces for all users are “active” in that:

  • Widgets based on WebAides (i.e. Calendars, Address Books, Blogs, Tasks, Links, Documents, etc.) auto-update themselves so that any changes made to the underlying entries are visible to you within one minute.
  • The “Email Quick Check” widget which shows you the status of one or multiple email folders updates your folder status automatically every two minutes.
  • The “Notepad” widget auto-saves your changes, merges them with changes made by others and auto-updates your display with the most recent merged content — real-time collaborative note taking.
  • Other widgets whose content can change also update automatically.

Significant updates include:
