Calendar Server - Get Yer Appts Emailed To You

I like it when I can say, here's some new information for you. As I mentioned yesterday, we were close to getting out a cool article (and it's actually the script that is cool) for generating an automatic email to your Calendar Server users, containing that day's appointments and tasks. Have at it:

Receiving a Daily Summary of Sun Java System Calendar Server Events and Tasks by Email

Thanks to Mike d. for contributing this info.

Heads Up: Cool Calendar Server Article Almost Here

As I wrote about in this previous blog entry, I've been working in conjunction with one of our Calendar Server gurus to document how to provide your Calendar Server users with a daily summary of their Calendar Server events and tasks, emailed to their inbox or mobile device each weekday morning. I've got the article on our internal staging site, and it should be pushed out this week to BigAdmin.

While were at it, for more fun with Calendar Server, see this post by a new Sun employee (formerly with SeeBeyond) and his positive experiences with Thunderbird and the Lightning extension that is part of the Sunbird Mozilla project, to access his Calendar Server data from w/i Thunderbird.

Extracting Tasks and Events From Sun Java System Calendar Server

There are a couple of ways to get task information for Sun Java System Calendar Server users, including:

# ./cscal -v list calid

# ./cscomponents list calid

# ./cscomponents -t task list calid

However, these commands merely return the number of tasks for the calid (user) specified.

I'm currently working on documenting an in-house way we have of providing our Sun Java System Calendar Server users with a daily summary of their Sun Java System Calendar Server events and tasks, emailed to their inbox or mobile device each weekday morning. This tech tip will show you how to create a Bourne shell script, which uses Web Calendar Access Protocol (WCAP) commands. On a daily basis, this script finds all events and tasks from users' calendars then emails them to the individual users. A cron job executes the script according to your preferences. The email that users receive resembles the following:

Look for this tech tip to be published very shortly.
