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.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
