Access Calendar vs Outlook Calendar Comment from Wayne Gisler @ 11/30/2014
Hi, Richard, long time since I've emailed you.

I wanted to see if you could provide me with a concise summary of the benefits of using a customized Access Calendar solution versus an Outlook Calendar.  I am not familiar with how to use an Outlook calendars, or how an Outlook calendar could be used to keep up with anything beyond simple appointments and meetings.

My goal is to this Access based solution to keep up with vacation requests, as well as who on our team will substitute for an employee who is on vacation in order to complete job duties that must be completed for the individual on vacation.  And that's Phase 1.  There are a lot of other possibilities.  I'd like the feedback requested mainly because I'm not familiar with how Outlook can be used to schedule vacation relief, and I'm anticipating questions from my upper management who will likely oversimplify the use of Outlook.

As always, your feedback (and your Seminars) are appreciated.

WG

Hi Wayne,

It all depends on your needs, an Access Calendar gives you much greater control over what data you wish to store and how you wish to display it, who can see what etc.
You could then link an event to a particular person(s).
