It was not off the shelf. It was some corporate calendar system that was part of a million buck ERP system.
Maybe your school has a CompSci department and you could have them develop such a thing?
I work for a university office that manages many different study abroad programs. I am looking for a calendar app that can handle all of the deadline, application openings, info sessions, auditions, etc. that we have for about a dozen programs throughout the year.
I am looking for an app with:
*the ability to create a hierarchy of multiple calendars. I want a calendar for each program. But I want to group multiple calendars as well: I want to be able to see just the calendar for our London Screenwriting Program, or I might want to see the calendars all three programs we are running in London. Ideally there would be a filter function (e.g. type "London" and it shows me all the London calendars)
*the ability to add an event to multiple calendars: We might have an info session where are discussing two different programs. I want to create one event but add it to both programs' calendars.
*the ability to create "sub-events" e.g. create a 4-hour block reserved for auditions, and as students sign up for 15-minute slots, i can choose to see the event as either 1 4-hour event or select a drop down to view in detail the parts where students have signed up (and who they are)
*the ability for students to reserve blocks of space (see above)
*the ability to view items as a list, preferably with a filter function (e.g. type "application deadline" and it shows me the deadline for each program's application)
*a web-based application that can be accessed anywhere, on PC, Mac, or mobile
I know it's a tall order, but are there any apps you know of that meet most, if not all, of these requirements?
