Appointment scheduling

An appointment scheduling helps in finding an agreeable date for a group appointment. The organizer of such a group appointment creates an appointment scheduling specifying possible dates and participants of the appointment. Parti­cipants may be registered BSCW users as well as other persons. The participants are notified via email and may then vote on the dates proposed as long as the voting period has not expired. Further participants may be suggested for the appointment. The organizer deter­mines the final date of the appointment, depending on the outcome of the voting. All participants are notified about the final date, which may then be transferred to a BSCW calendar or exported to other calendar systems.
