Are you coming to my meeting?

The next update to Intellect 4 is coming soon and some of the updates are focused on adding a few new features to the Appointments data.  In particular, we are currently testing meeting confirmations that Intellect users can send to anyone with an email address.

How might this work?

First, you will need two things: Intellect 4 and a ChaosHost account.

Next, using Intellect 4, right click on an appointment and choose “Send to …” and select “E-Mail Recipient”.  Send it to any email address and you’re done!

The E-Mail recipient option isn’t new: Intellect 4 has always offered this as a way to notify others of an appointment they might be interested in. A vCal attachment for the appointment is always attached as well, so the recipient can easily add it to their calendar, even if they don’t also use Intellect.

What is new, however, is a way to track their response. The email includes two nice, new, big buttons for the recipient to Accept or Decline your invite. When they click one of these buttons, their response will be saved through your account and will update the appointment with their confirmation.

Sound useful to you?  We are looking for a few users that want a head start using this new feature, who are willing to send out some invitations and help us get any rough edges smoothed out before the official release. Send an email to our support team and we’ll forward you the details on downloading the latest beta.
