 “Looking up the of 100 partner/staff calendars in our Canterbury office whilst answering a client call efficiently has always been tricky. We used a printed outlook view based on a group calendar which was two sheets of A4 stuck together! Of course it was always out of date. I now print a snapshot from the free/busy program (just in case) and use the program on my second screen full time. The free/busy viewer is quick, accurate and clear. Its lovely and a real help when dealing with clients.”
