Hello Forum Folks.
With Kerio Mail Server 6.6, I'm looking to be able to invite a group of people to a calendar event. Preferably by typing in 1 address or name. My only other real requirement is that the that the invited staff be able to say "Accept" or "Deny" to the invitation, or for the system to look up the appointment in the staff members avaialability calendar, and to advise accordingly.
The clients, Mac users, running iCal and Mail app on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, can make internal individual appointments OK.
If you type the names of people into an iCal appointment, you can see their availability.
If you type a 'group' name (Address Book) into the iCal Attendee field, the name inserts OK, and auto-expands, but the availability view doesn't show the real availability. (E.g. shows users as available, even if they aren't). Users are notified, by they can't Accept or Deny.
If you type a KMS 'group' name into the same field, this too does not work. (Assuming you have some staff email addresses listed in this group in KMS). Yes, the people will be emailed, but availability isn't being checked.
If you type a KMS 'mailing list' name into the same 'Attendee' field in iCal, the staff availability will not be checked + be shown for the appointment. But like the examples above, the staff will still receive the invitation (without any option to actually Accept / Deny the meeting).
If you type multiple staff email addresses into the field, you can automatically look up + insert staff email addresses (via an LDAP connection in Directory Utility on the client Mac). However, for a group of say 30+ staff, this can get a little tiresome. And some staff don't want to enter this many names.
Does anybody have a similar idea / way of handling this?
