Questionnaires and Surveys

The following work products are surveys or questionnaire results from questionnaires conducted by the Consortium.


State of Resource Interoperability for Calendaring, Groupware and Project Management (June 10, 2009)

This document was created by the USECASE Technical Committee of the Calendaring and Scheduling Consortium. This document is a survey of the present state of resource interoperability for a representative sample of calendaring, groupware, and project management applications. "Interoperability of resources" within the domains surveyed is a level of functionality that allows the communication of resource information between applications that is humanly useful though not necessarily identical for both systems.


Mobile Calendaring Questionnaire V2 Results (July 24, 2006)

The goal of this questionnaire was to determine how and to what extent Calendaring is being used on mobile devices, with a view to using those results to aid in the development of recommendations on how to address any problem areas. A number of responses were received to the online questionnaire, and a summary and brief conclusion of these results is presented, along with the raw results themselves. Respondents to the questionnaire answered based on the capabilities of their device. The results show an aggregate of these results.


Report on Timezone Questionnaire Results (October 3, 2005)

This document is one in a series of documents summarizing the results of questionnaires that the Calendaring and Scheduling Consortium has conducted to help better understand the requirements, problems and needs for calendaring and scheduling solutions. It is expected that the results of these questionnaires will be used to help define requirements and recommendations for calendaring & scheduling products. This particular document summarizes the results of the Timezone Technical Committee's questionnaire on Timezone support in iCalendar products. Other questionnaire summary documents will cover different areas of calendaring and scheduling, and will be made available by the Consortium.


Results from Recurrence Questionnaire (July 21, 2005)

The Recurrence Technical Committee of The Calendaring and Scheduling Consortium has collected specific information on how Calendaring and Scheduling implementations have, or have not, implemented the Recurrence Rules of RFCs 2445 and 2446, iCalendar and iTIP. This document is part of the committee's work to compile actual usage information and interoperability issues. The Recurrence Committee recently collected information in the form of a Recurrence Questionnaire, which allowed vendors and other producers and consumers of iCalendar recurrences to list the features of iCalendar that they implemented. The questionnaire also contained space for comments about each line item in the RFCs and also overall issues with recurrences. The Recurrence Technical Committee has since analyzed the results of the questionnaire into this document.
