Calendar & Free Busy

If you have enabled the "Send calendar and task reminders" option above, click this option if you also wish to enable reminders for Outlook Connector users.

Free/Busy Options

MDaemon includes a Free/Busy server, which makes it possible for a meeting planner to view the availability of potential meeting attendees. To access this feature, click Scheduling within WorldClient when creating a new appointment. This opens a Scheduling window containing the list of attendees and a color-coded calendar grid with a row for each one. Each attendee's row is color-coded to indicate the times at which he or she might be available for a meeting. There are colors for Busy, Tentative, Out of Office, and No information. There is also an Auto-Pick Next button that makes it possible for you to query the server for the next time slot at which all attendees may be available. When you have finished creating the appointment it will send an invitation to all of the attendees, who can then accept or decline.

WorldClient's Free/Busy server is also compatible with Microsoft Outlook. To use it, configure Outlook to query the URL listed below for Free/Busy data. In Outlook 2002, for example, the Free/Busy options are located under "Tools » Options » Calendar Options... » Free/Busy Options..."

Free/Busy server URL for Outlook:


Replace "<WorldClient>" with the IP address or domain name of your WorldClient server, and "<:Port>" with the port number (if you aren't using the default web port). For example:

Free/Busy password

If you wish to require a password when this domain's users attempt to access the Free/Busy server features via Outlook, then include the password here. This password must be appended to the URL listed above (in the form: "&password=FBServerPass") when the users configure their Free/Busy settings within Outlook. For example:

Meeting Options

Allow meetings to be created without specifying a location

Click this option if you do not wish to require users to specify a meeting location whenever a meeting event is created. Clear the check box if you want to force all meetings to have a location specified when they are scheduled. This is a global setting; it cannot be set per domain.
