    Question Inviting groups to appointments

    I am trying to figure out what the feature equivalent is for the following on the Zimbra system:

    On the Oracle Calendar system I can create aliases which expand out to a set of people. I can then invite just the alias and Oracle will expand the list on my behalf. This is especially useful for scheduling staff meetings, etc.

    Is there an equivalent feature with Zimbra?

    Thanks!

    Alexei

    Thanks. I'll look at that feature more closely!

    It sounds like that's what you need, if not post again.

    We just tried it and it is not quite what we are looking for.

    We created a distribution list in the GAL (call it FOO). We can invite FOO to a meeting in calendar but we don't see free/busy information for FOO as a whole. If we invite the individual members of FOO we get to see their free/busy info.

    What would be useful is if the group expanded out to the individual members so we could see individual free/busy details.

    So:

    1) is free/busy for the whole group something that we can display?
    2) any plans to allow for expansion of the distribution list into individual members?

    Thanks!

    Automatic expansion of the distribution list would indeed be useful, so that you can check free busy times for the group.

    Check bugzilla and see if it's already been entered as an RFE, if not file & vote.

    This RFE seems to be the one that relates to this thread Bug 10867 - display free/busy info for members of a dl/list when scheduling an appointment .
