SchoolBell is a Zope 3 add-on package which coordinates the sharing of web and iCal based calendars for people, groups and resources within organizations.
The package includes an iCalendar parser and a package for managing XLink/RDF style relationships between objects, both of which can be split off for use in other GPL licensed projects. Development of SchoolBell is funded by the Shuttleworth Foundation as part of the SchoolTool project. SchoolBell does not work with Zope 2.
  • SchoolBell allows you to create people, resources (such as rooms, computers or projectors) and groups of people and/or resources. 
  • A calendar is created for each of these which may be accessed through the web or through a client application that support the iCalendar standard,  such as Mozilla Calendar or Apple's
  • In the web view of their personal calendar, users can view color-coded events from other selected SchoolBell calendars.
  • SchoolBell allows finely grained access control for calendars. 
    • Site administrators can designate which people can view calendars and who can add or edit events on calendars. 
    • Permissions can be set globally, by type or for individual calendars.
  • SchoolBell is an excellent choice for managing the scheduling of shared resources, like labs, studios, libraries, computers, projectors, etc.  Each item's calendar can be made publically viewable, but the site administrator can specify which people can add or modify events for each calendar.
