Calendar (SOGo)

Service Category: E-Mail, Calendar & Collaboration

The calendar service enables the administration of appointments, tasks and address data in a central location. By assigning appropriate access rights, shared calendars (e.g. for working groups) can also be set up. In addition to the service's own web interface, other client programs can also be used to access the calendars from any location.

The service is operated by the KIM of the University of Konstanz. For questions and problems the helpdesk of the kiz provides 1st level support.
