<h2>Administration Functions</h2>
<p>The administration of this application should be fairly simple.  You can administer:</p>
<ul>
<li>Users (or Resources or Groups) and the relationships between them</li>
<li>The types of relationships that are available</li>
</ul>
<p><i>There is no ability to view and / or maintain calendars or events from within this administrative interface.</i></p>
<p>To do that you will need to use a CalDAV capable calendaring application such as Evolution, Sunbird, Thunderbird
(with the Lightning extension) or Mulberry.</p>

<h3>Users, Resources and Groups</h3>
<p>These are the things which may have collections of calendar resources (i.e. calendars).</p>
<p><a href="../users.php">Here is a list of users (maybe :-)</a>.  You can click on any user to see the full detail
for that person (or group or resource - but from now we'll just call them users).</p>
<p>The primary differences between them are as follows:</p>
<ul>
<li>Users will probably have calendars, and are likely to also log on to the system.</li>
<li>Resources do have calendars, but they will not usually log on.</li>
<li>Groups provide an intermediate linking to minimise administration overhead.  They might not have calendars, and they will not usually log on.</li>
</ul>

<h3>Types of Relationships</h3>
<p>These define the structure of the relationships between users.</p>
<p>A manager might want to grant full access to their calendar to an assistant, for example, so
there should be an "Is assisted by" relationship between the manager and the assistant.</p>
<p>Relationships themselves are maintained on the User maintenance screen.</p>
<p>It can also be useful to have several people having the same kind of access to a particular
set of resources.  The "Is a member of group" relationship is used to link users to the group,
and then the group is linked to each resource with the "Administers Resource" relationship.</p>
<p>You can also define other relationship types beyond the basic ones just described.</p>
<p>Relationship links work in three ways, as follows:</p>
<ul>
<li>Where users relate to each other (i.e. links to non-group targets), the relationship type will define whether access is read only, or read &amp; write.</li>
<li>Where a set of users link to a group, which does not further link to other users/resources, they will share the same access to each other.</li>
<li>Where a set of users link to a group, which then links to other users/resources, the access restrictions will apply as the lesser of their link to that group, or the link from the group.  They will have no access to each other's calendars.</li>
</ul>

<h2>Configuring Calendar Clients for DAViCal</h2>
<p>The <a href="http://rscds.sourceforge.net/clients.php">DAViCal client setup page on sourceforge</a> have information on how
to configure Evolution, Sunbird, Lightning and Mulberry to use remotely hosted calendars.</p>
<p>The administrative interface has no facility for viewing or modifying calendar data.</p>

<h2>Configuring DAViCal</h2>
<p>If you can read this then things must be mostly working already.</p>
<p>The <a href="http://rscds.sourceforge.net/installation.php">DAViCal installation page</a> on sourceforge has
some further information on how to install and configure this application.</p>
