Appointment Summary Zimlet – Know what your Calendar looks like for the day

By | July 7, 2010

Every day, when you first login, this Zimlet scans your calendar and sends out a summary email about the current day’s events.

This Zimlet helps both frequent and lite calendaring users in different ways:

1. For power-users, this is like having a personal assistant; who summarizes appointments for the day, providing a concrete idea as to how many meetings you have.
2. For general-users, the Zimlet helps in reminding you that there is a meeting to prepare for (in case you’ve forgotten)

To make it easier to read, the appointments are sorted and divided along two simple categories:  Those that need your immediate attention (e.g confirmed or new events) and others that don’t (those you’ve marked tentative, free, out-of-office, or declined but not yet deleted).

  • This is certainly a nice feature, but I would like to configure which calenders shall be considered for this summary.

    Would it be possible to add such a feature either at the configuration page of each calendar or for that zimlet a defined config page with a list of calenders to select from.

  • I am trying this out and the (otherwise useful) summary email is sent out after midday, which defeats its purpose.

    My Zimbra host is based in the UK, so perhaps time-zones are a factor. How is the timing of the summary email determined? It doesn’t seem to be configurable anywhere.
