Virtual Civic Diary Link to this post

I was wondering if anyone uses a virtual diary where you can add attachments to them that their Civic Head can access, and if they do what is the programme called. Out Outlook Calendar is not sophisticated enough to add loads of attachments to appointments

I know from a few conferences there was an authority who had a programme that could do this

Good afternoon Emara
I think Alison Orde at St Albans Council did a training session at the Camden Training Day regarding a virtual diary. May be worth contacting her.

Hi Emma,

We have transferred over to Google here at Canterbury City Council and you can attach docs onto that it works really well,

Best wishes,

Hi Emma,

Here in Southwark we use Microsoft Office and Members have Ipads & Iphones. It works find. I can change appointments in real time and it updates immediately for them and also I can attach email or documents and they can view them all. Maybe it is a compatibility thing?

In Henley I used Google Mail just for Mayor and Deputy & Chair of Planning. But for that was only the Mayors office so with council member permission it may be possible for you too? Just need to ensure security is compliant?

Best wishes
