Organizer 97 GS works either as a standalone application or as a front end to Lotus Notes and Domino 4.5 groupware. New features allow viewing of up to 15 different calendars, drag-and-drop addition of schedule and contact information through the vCard and vCalendar standards, and two-way synchronization of information with the U.S. Robotics PalmPilot handheld device.
When Organizer 97 GS is used as a front-end interface to a remote Domino server, users can dial in and remotely update their Organizer files. When comparing schedules within a group, Organizer users can now compare up to 15 calendars simultaneously, Lotus said.
Organizer 97 GS requires 17MB of disk space. It will be available for $79. Registered Organizer 97 users can upgrade to GS for $49. French, Spanish, German, and Brazilian Portuguese versions will be available immediately, with other languages to follow in 30 days.
