What would be a simple way to implement calendar and appointment sharing in
MS office in my company? Most of my PC users are using office 2000. I think
it would entail using MS Exchange but I've never touched it before.

If you do not want to invest the time in managing an Exchange Server,
and you are not interested in "hosted" services; then I would recommend
http://www.4team.biz/. I have implemented it on numerous of SMB who did
not want to invest in technology such as Exchange, but wanted the
feature. Good luck.

Michael

Once again thank you. I am going to recommend we use Google Calendar. It is
much cleaner, easier to understand and very nice GUI for the end user. We
will make use of this system for sure. Plus the great part about it is the
signup is so easy it's ridiculous and it's free. I looked at Windows Live
but that's more than i want to get into. We already have our website
outsourced to a 3rd party and our domain belongs to them. Too complicated
i'm keeping it simple. Google's calendar is better than Yahoos, although
Yahoos isn't bad. Googles really takes the cake though

Are you going to sync it with Outlook or no?

Can you sync it with outlook? I definitely will if it's possible.

Yes you can sync it to Outlook but you have to do it manually by
exporting your Outlook calendar (iCal or CSV) and then importing it to
Google Calendar. There is currently no automatic way to sync the two.

Hehe, I was hoping you had figured that out. There are tools out there
to do it but I haven't found one that worked well. I did implement
SugarCRM (open source CRM package) to accomplish this. I used it for a
small company looking to share calendaring & tasks amongst 5-7 users.
It works well. You do have to buy a sync program but IIRC it was about
$30/user. You may not need this functionality but I wanted to pass it
along. (BTW, SugarCRM is also a great all-around CRM+ package. I say
CRM+ because it also does some light project management and bug tracking
too very well).
