Diary management software allows employees to schedule meetings and appointments
whether they are based in the same office, location or work from home for example.

example can do so and be sure that the event won't clash with another event.
By using a DMS businesses can ensure that all employees are able to communicate with each
other and make sure that all tasks are completed, appointments/meetings do not clash
and reminders are set make sure that meetings/appointments are not missed
DMS will allow the creation and storage of a list of
appointments and who will be attending.
The DMS may also show how many clashes between appointments/meetings and may suggest alternative times.
When an appointments/meeting has been created the DMS will be able to invite by email, the people wh need to attend it.
DMS can provide a task list which could include who is to complete each tasks and the deadline for each task
The priority of the tasks can also be set. It will also allow the deadline and priority of each task to be changed

Some DMS users may use the to To-Do List facility to create personal lists. For example, make an appointment to see the dentist
attend a birthday party or go on holiday.
A DMS can automatically remind people of an appointment/meeting that they have to attend.
Reminders can be set to activate at different times prior to the appointment/meeting.
