This is a good news for all users of Google Calendar : you can see and edit your Google Calendar inside your Thunderbird mail application.
What you need :
- Thunderbird > 2.x
- Provider for Google Calendar Addon
- Lightning Addon
- A gmail account linked to your calendar
After installing Thunderbird, the provider and lightning addons, open the “Calendars” tab and add a new calendar.
Choose “network calendar” and “Google Calendar” type of calendar. In the URL field, fill your XML private address of your calendar (available in “calendar details” in your google calendar web site).
Then, fill in your gmail password and voila !
This is IMO the best solution to share calendar in small business (and why not in bigger company), at a very low cost, between a lot of different collaborators.
