Sundial Calendar Has New Features

ITSS is pleased to announce that the Sundial calendar Web application has been upgraded to version The Sundial calendaring service provides Stanford with a full featured, common calendaring system that is maintained centrally. This Sundial upgrade is for the web client only; it will not affect any of the desktop clients. Your Sundial agenda continues to be available on the Web at: .

The new version of the Sundial web client has a new look, along with several new features, including:

• Designate capabilities: If you keep someone else's calendar, you can now act as a designate for that person using the Sundial Web client. (For detailed instructions, see "Instructions for Working as a Designate in another person's calendar" on the web at: .)

• Attach a file to a meeting (For detailed instructions, see "Instructions for Attaching a File to a Meeting" on the web at: .)

• SUNet ID searching: You can search for someone by entering their SUNet ID rather than their first and last names when you are scheduling a meeting, creating a group, or viewing their agenda.

• Calendar format can toggle between a planner view (the default view) and a list view by clicking the Accessibility icon (disabled access symbol).

Known problem: ITSS discovered during their testing that the attachments feature does not work properly on the Macintosh with Internet Explorer. All other ITSS-supported browsers work fine on PC and Mac. For more details, please see "Instructions for Attaching a File to a Meeting" on the web at
