Schedule your group online

As Web portals duke it out over Web-based calendars, personal organisers are largely free and available at the click of a mouse. But what if you want to get your group organised?

Enter Jintek's ScheduleOnline, a free scheduling application geared towards businesses.

"We're different from free online Web calendars by being focused on use within organisations," said Hans Hartman, Jintek's vice president of sales and marketing.

An improved ScheduleOnline debuted this week, bringing two new applications: file sharing and chat. With file sharing, you can get updated on the latest office documents and templates, even while you're travelling.

Need the latest case study or project wrap-up? Just browse over to ScheduleOnline and upload the document. Instead of walking around gathering up co-workers for meetings, or sending out e-mails that don't get read for hours, ScheduleOnline's messaging system gives instantaneous notifications to anyone at their computer.

These new features supplement ScheduleOnline's strong scheduling features. For example, you can automatically check to see if co-workers are available for a meeting and which conference rooms are free.

Using ScheduleOnline is child's play: Just enter in your name, the name of your company, and a password, and you're ready to go. To the left of your Web calendar, you'll find all the tools you need to upload and download files, chat, and schedule meetings.

Do you want, for example, to set up a live chat with all the project managers of your production department? Simply click on "Schedule a Chat," scroll down to the appropriate department, and select the names of the attendees. While ScheduleOnline can't replaced a fully customised intranet, its straightforward approach works very well for all the meetings you must make.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
