Group Scheduling for Linux, Mac & Windows users
Throughout the last couple of years, WetterOnline has been an engaged customer offering many suggestions for OnTime improvements. Most of these have already been implemented to the benefit of them and other clients. For WetterOnline, the most essential aspect of OnTime is the support for their teams to work efficiently and transparently with employees working on different operating systems.
Solving Group Scheduling Problems in Outlook Web
WetterOnline uses a mix of Linux, MacOS and Windows, and they therefore decided to standardize on the Outlook Web Client. However, this tool is not designed for creating groups and appointments with many people. Throughout the organization there were many requests for a better team scheduling tool. After scanning the market WetterOnline decided to use OnTime.
”OnTime has become our central tool for our team’s internal coordination making them work more efficiently together even when they are working on multiple operating systems.”
OnTime's Time Saving Calendar Features
OnTime allows all employees to stay updated whether they are in the office or on the go. Coordination is easier than ever before, and finding the meeting slot available for most possible invitees can be done in no time. OnTime now plays a crucial role in coordinating, as users manage all their team-related scheduling directly from OnTime. Additionally, OnTime is significantly faster than Outlook as it prefetches appointments in the OnTime database. This makes for a more pleasant and smooth scheduling experience.
Group Maintenance Automation
Furthermore, OnTime helps the organisation automate groups in the group calendar from the Active Directory. Whenever they customize users or groups in the Active Directory, it is automatically updated in the group calendar. This feature saves the organisation a lot of time.
