Shouldn't calendars in
SharePoint be collaborative too?
The SharePoint Team Calendar Web Part provides a centralized
group calendar that can interact with a SharePoint calendar list, multiple
Microsoft Exchange calendars, or do both side-by-side. Users can add and
edit items in a SharePoint list directly from the Team Calendar, or they
can create and update Exchange meetings and appointments through an Outlook
style resource scheduling assistant. The Team Calendar can even display
events for multiple Exchange accounts in a single calendar, complete with
customizable color coding for different calendars and event types.

appointments from Team Calendar is easy with the Web
Part's built in tools -- simply create your event,

Address List you use in Exchange, and even attach
files. Best of all, everyone's schedule is right in
front of you, both on the calendar, and in the
Outlook-style scheduling assistant.
The Team Calendar Web Part combines the flexibility of list-based calendar views with the undisputed standard for corporate scheduling and contact management, Microsoft Exchange, giving you access to both from a single Web Part. While working with either calendar type, you can view by Year, Month, Week, and Day, add color-coding, and create new events -- list items in SharePoint calendars, and meetings or appointments in Exchange.
This product is a SharePoint Web Part and is installed as a solution through the SharePoint Installer. Once installed, the Team Calendar Web Part can be added or removed from any site. Team Calendar can be configured to display a list-based calendar, an Exchange calendar, or both, side-by-side. Depending on which calendar is to be displayed, the Web Part may require network and Exchange account information, as the calendar is linked to a single SharePoint list or Exchange account. Once configured, the Web Part provides the ability to view exisiting calendar items and create new ones, with access to the Global Address List and a Scheduling Assistant when using Exchange.
