I'm testing out the new 5.0 RC1 release.
When creating a calendar event and going into scheduling, I'm looking for a way to add all the attendees of a particular group. If I go to find attendees, and add that distribution list it doesn't relaly help because in the scheduler it does not show the individual calendars of the members of that distribution list.
I found this thread Group (distribution list) schedule which suggested that you use a contact group. I created a contact group containing the one other test user that I have created. Then I went into find attendees, found that contact group in my contacts and added it. However, when I switch back to the schedule tab that contact group doesn't even show up in the list of attendees. I have access to the other test user's calendar, because if I add them using their individual contact from GAL their schedule shows up fine.
Am I doing this all wrong?
Edit: Forgot to ask this. When searching in like find attendees, you can't seem to do partial matches on your contacts, just the gal. Like say i have a distribution list named "firstname.lastname@example.org". If I type in "empl" in the search it finds it. if i create a contact group in my local contacts called employeesgroup or something like that, change the source to Contacts and type in "empl" it returns nothing. I have to type out the full name. Is this normal?
