Use

You can use the Availability iView to display the availability of users assigned to the collaboration room in question. You can then use the information gained to create appropriate appointments.

The availability of all members of the room in question is displayed by default. It is not possible to view the availability of portal users who have not been assigned to the room. However, when you access the Availability function from other areas of the portal, such as from the Collaboration Launch Pad (CLP) or Create Appointment dialog box, you can view the availability of any portal user with a valid groupware account.

 

Integration

The Availability iView is part of the calendar, but you can also access the availability function from the Collaboration Launch Pad. For more information, see Availability (Launched from CLP).
