Shared Workspace Business Manual

Item Types: Calendars


A Shared Workspace calendar is used to capture details about meetings or events.

A calendar entry contains the date, time and location of an event. The event description can also be entered and any files such as an agenda or attendee list can be added.

A calendar entry can also contain any of the Shared Workspace items described at SW07200.

Once an event has taken place the calendar entry can be used to store the documents resulting from the event.

The eRoom Plug-In SW07610 allows HMRC members only to set up synchronisation between Shared Workspace and Outlook. Calendar entries and tasks created in Shared Workspace can be automatically added to Outlook and updated using the synchronisation.

The synchronisation is a one way process only – events and tasks can be synchronised from Shared Workspace to Outlook but not from Outlook to Shared Workspace.

The S&ID Shared Workspace site has more information on the Plug-In
