Enhanced Outlook Scheduling
Outlook is an excellent personal calendar but it lacks the multi-calendar and outlook calendar reporting facilities needed in an organization-wide scheduling system, which is where Whitespace® comes in.
Whitespace® utilizes real-time Outlook data to provide a consolidated, organization-wide scheduling solution. Users continue using Outlook, schedulers, team leaders, directors, anyone needing to view or report upon multiple calendars uses Whitespace®.
Why Not Use Outlook Shared Calendars?
Outlook shared calendars allow you to see a number of people’s calendars over a number of days, but it is very limited in function and can be very frustrating to use. Whitespace® overcomes the limitations in Outlook shared calendars and can provide an Outlook centric resource scheduling system.
Appointments entered in either system are visible in the other, so schedulers know what items users have in their calendar, and end-users get to see in their calendar what the work scheduled for them. The information on appointments can be enhanced to include Customer, Project, Type of Work, and more.
With extended facilities, enhanced security provides control over the calendars people can see and which appointments they can edit. A protected appointment feature can stop users from altering or deleting certain appointments.
Powerful and Configurable Reporting
Whitespace® consolidates Outlook calendars to facilitate organization-wide outlook calendar reporting. You can even add essential fields such as Customer, Project, Type of Work, etc to enhance analysis and reporting.
Simply put, Whitespace® empowers Outlook to become the corporate scheduling tool you need it to be.
† Outlook shared calendars can only show a handful of calendars simultaneously. In contrast, Whitespace® views can have any number of employees so you can scroll up and down, search for availability or skill etc.
