Meeting Organizer for Docket Enterprise activities

April 24, 2019 by Jan Spetz

Docket Enterprise 4 requires a Meeting Organizer on every activity, just like Outlook.

In Outlook, the person who sends a meeting request is the Meeting Organizer. In both Docket Enterprise and Outlook, the Meeting Organizer is the “key person” who is most responsible for the activity, always has a copy of the activity on his/her calendar, and is the one who can track acceptances.

By using the Meeting Organizer feature, Docket takes advantage of the meeting request/accept workflow that is built into Outlook/Exchange. This ensures efficient use of your Exchange server.  It also improves Docket’s already strong integration with Outlook, providing Free/Busy Search when scheduling and Attendee Tracking in both the  Outlook Tracking tab and the Docket Enterprise interface.

In Docket Enterprise, the Meeting Organizer does not have to be the person doing the scheduling (as it does in Outlook.)  This means you can assign a default Meeting Organizer at several levels: firm-wide, workgroup, matter, template, and current user.

Finally, it is possible to use generic mailbox account as default Meeting Organizer, if that works best for your firm.

If you would like to know more about Docket’s use of Meeting Organizer, please ask us for the Schedule Synchronization Service Technical Guide.
