We have a small (27 folks) but very distributed group. We'd like to mount some software on our CentOS dedicated box so everyone in the group can maintain their own calendar and see everyone else's.
So far we've looked at http://www.ma.utexas.edu/webcalendar/ and
http://www.phprojekt.com/index.php
Has anyone here had experience running group calendar software over the Internet? Can you give me any advice or product suggestions?
Thanks!

Is it just purely a calender you want or would you also be interested in something which allowed group collaboration in other things? Things like webmail, shared document repositories etc... ?

Just calendars. So Joe knows that Suzie will be in court Thursday morning and Ralph knows that there is a staff meeting with Joe and Suzie on Friday -- and Ralph can put it on his calendar so Joe & Suzie know he plans to attend.
I just re-read that last paragraph. It's not an easy read, sorry.

The easiest way would be to use google calendars. Also you could go with egroupware (http://http://www.egroupware.org/) It has the calendar function and more but you can disable all but the calendar function.

Yeah, it would be the easiest route; but, I forgot to tell you that we want to keep this as in-house as possible and avoid either services like Google or hooking into Outlook.
Apparently Outlook (but not Outlook Express -- go figure) have driven too many of our people to distraction. Anything tailored to Outlook would be a hard sell.
Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge,
Aza

You could have it on Google Calendar under your domain name.

It's a privacy issue not a labeling issue.
To their credit Google is quite honest about how use patterns are made fungible. Given that government agencies, hospitals, and insurance companies have been known to leak collected information I can sort of understand why the folks here aren't particularly keen on the Google service. If we get hacked, all they get is a snapshot.
I'll do some more digging at the Perl and PHP code sources.
Thanks for your suggestion,
Pat
