Multicalendar setup and user permissions
Just a few quick questions about the software in order to determine how suitable it would be for our needs.
We require calendars to organise bookings for various of our pieces of equipment (6 in total) so needed to check that on a single server we would be able to run 6 seperate calendars, all with distinct URLs. From a few things I have read it seems that this would be possible. How would the URLs be organised? Would they exist in seperate folders (ie; ourdomain.com/item1 etc) or would the calendars be identified as some sort of scripted link? Or could they exist on distinct subdomains? Would multiple calendars run off a single mysql server?
How 'seperate' could the calendars be? Can they be fully configured independently of each other or would they all be subject to the same global settings? The primary reason for this is that we operate different policies for different pices of equipment - some require the booking to be authorised so we would require a username and password to access some, while for others we would like anybody to be able to create events without requiring any username or password. Is this possible, or would we have to create a username and password for every possible user? Also, we'd like to be able to operate distinct colour schemes for each calendar, to make sure users distinguish between them.
Finally, do you have any rough figures of bandwidth use on a per user basis? I'm guessing it won't use a huge amount, but it would be useful for us to know roughly how much it might use.
Thanks in advance for all your help! I look forward to hearing from you.
