Booking system for TurningPoint and other LT equipment
Connecting to the Outlook calendar – ltdropin
You will already have owner permissions on the ltdropin calendar, you just need to browse to it in Outlook and add it to Favourites
- Use the Folder List button at the bottom of the left hand panel in Outlook to display folders.
- Browse to Public Folders>Intranet>edalt>Private
- Right click on the ltdropin calendar and Add to Favourites
- Go back to calendar view in Outlook and you should see the ltdropin calendar is now in your list so you can select to view it.
You can view/add/edit/delete items in the calendar.
What goes in the calendar
Sid has been using this calendar for booking and recording use of Perseus. You will see the bookings, who, when, if it’s remote use or in our room.
Use the calendar to book out ALL lt equipment for the time it will be out. There is also a sign out sheet in a folder in Kit 1 cupboard, (next to Jan’s whiteboards). Everyone who takes a piece of kit out of this room should have a form filled out and signed to say they have taken it, and when it will come back.
In the near future
The current ltdropin calendar resides in the edalt community. Communities will be changing and migrating to SharePoint and some stage and I expect this calendar will be defunct. We do have another calendar that we all share, associated with our new TEL email address. I expect it maybe be easy to transfer to that one, I’ll discuss it with Sid and let you know what we decide to do.
Hope all is clear, any problems do ask for help
