This is a pre-sales question to see if kerio makes sense for what I am trying to do.
FIrst, I like kerio feature set as I want a shared contact/collaboration system that plays well in an environment with Macs, Windows, and other *Nix's
My problem is that I am working with a school that has an extensive database for student records, activities, all the things that one would expect a school to keep track of.
I want to automate a way to do some EDI between the kerio contact database and the sql-based internal database.
Example, I add a student ID to a user-defined field in the kerio contact record for a parent, and if the parent's phone number changes, I want to be able to run some code (that needs to be written) that exports what has changed so the student database doesn't have to be manually updated with the new phone number or whatever else changes. (And opposite is true).
is there a product or mechanism that can drill down into kerio and do custom reports/queries / import expoort?
Hmm, not that way it's done - as I'm aware.
Kerio does two things:
1: Hook users up to an external LDAP (AD or OD) database.
2: Store flat files (indexed) with all the mails etc. in them.
So, I guess I would focus on making sure the students update their 'school record/account' in the ritgh system, and then Kerio will reflect that change in the Global Address List..
Hope it helps,
