Calendar Sharing
Idea shared by Craig Severance - 7/3/2014 at 7:43 AM
We use the calendar to post all of our limousine trips so that we can track customers trips. We have drivers that have their own calendar and currently we have to manually copy and paste information that is in our main customer calendar to a driver that we want to do that trip. It would be nice to have a feature to share this event with other calendars so that it will automatically show up in their calendar exactly the way it is written in the main calendar. This would allow us to share an event with one click and know that the driver now can see all of his/her trips that we have assigned to them for any period of time. I hope this is a an option you see value in since it would help us immensely.

Hi Craig,
SmarterMail includes a Shared Resource feature that I believe you would benefit from. Rather than sharing single events among your drivers' calendars, you can share out your main customer calendar to your drivers. You have the option of giving them full control or making it read-only. Once they have attached the calendar to their account, they'll be able to toggle between their personal calendar and the main customer calendar. When creating events, you can enter the driver as an attendee and they'll receive an email notification when the event is created.
Below are two links that will give you more information on shared resources. This involves you sharing the resource and your user's attaching the resource. 
Let me know if you have any questions!
