My Step Father is starting his own company, and he gets the wonderful life of having to deal with multiple clients.

He needs a calendar system that can do the following:

  • Can be updated from iCal (I'm pretty sure this just means CalDAV support)
  • Needs to be able to show different clients the details of whats on his calendar for them, while showing other client's arranged times as only busy
  • Wants to show it in a professional way, preferably on his own website.

I was looking at Google Calendar, but alas it doesn't seem to actually support it like I thought it would. He was looking at MobileMe, but its simply public.

Is there a calendar app or PHP application that can be installed on his server that can do this?

This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

If you set up Google Calendar via Google Apps for Domain (which is free for up to 50 users I think) then you don't have to "invite", you can just add the calendars of other people in your domain.

Google Calendar seems to be your best choice. What doesn't it support?

In order to use Google Calendar for this, each 'client' would have to be invited to EVERY SINGLE ONE of the client calendars, each of them as busy/available only except for their own, unless you know something I don't? – Navarr Jan 2 '11 at 0:36
I am still a bit confused by what you need. Do you want each person to have their own personalized calendar? – ra4king Jan 3 '11 at 2:51
