In Outlook, you can access the Address Book button at any time:

no matter whether you want to write a new email or - as the following screenshot shows - look at the calendar of another upTUdate subscriber:

However, the TU-wide address book can also be integrated into various other mail clients, such as

Screenshots Thunderbird:

Screenshots for inserting the upTUdate address book into Thunderbird 12.0.1:

First select the "Address Book" tab.

Screenshot: LDAP directory

File --> New --> LDAP directory

Configuration settings for LDAP address book

Configuration settings: Server address:, Basis-DN: ou=people,ou=tu,dc=intern,dc=tuwien,dc=ac,dc=at, Port-Nummer:636

Placing search queries

Now you can enter search queries in the newly created LDAP address book "upTUdate".

(Screenshots for Outlook 2013)

Open the address book in the upper right corner. Under "All Address Lists" --> "TU Wien" you can now select the organizational unit whose members you would like to have listed in your address book:

Screenshot: default address book

Specify the selected institution as the default address list:

To change the default address book, click on Tools --> Options in the address book.

Select the desired institution as default address list and confirm with OK.

Via the link upTUdate, opens an external URL in a new window in TISS (tab Organization, section Address Book) you can display the authorization groups in which you are a member or, if you are an address manager, those that you can administer are also displayed.

Using the link upTUdate, opens an external URL in a new window in TISS (tab Organization, section Address Book) you can, if you are an address manager, also create authorization groups or administrate existing ones:

Create a new group and add employees

Screenshot: Creating an authorization group in upTUdate

Specify a name for the group and a short description. The group name automatically contains the short name of the selected organizational unit as the prefix, in the example E020D.

Screenshot: Adding employees to the authorization group

You can add new members from your organizational unit.

Screenshot: Search for persons from other organizational units

Search for people from other organizational units.

Screenshot: Adding people

Add the person to your group.

Screenshot: Display all members of your group

All members of your group are displayed.

Calendar sharing: Configure other people's access rights to your own calendar

The screenshots show how you can give other upTUdate participants more or less insight into your own calendar.

In this example Paula Proband configures the access rights of her colleague Toni Tester to her calendar.

In the tab "File" you have to select "Options", there "Calendar".

Now you can change the "permissions for displaying free/busy information":

Screenshot: Change permissions for displaying free/busy information
Screenshot: Add employees
Screenshot: Defining the authorization level
Screenshot: Calendar release: Apply settings

This gives the upTUdate participant Toni Tester the right to inspect the dates (including subject and location) of Paula Proband.

Open released calendar

The screenshots show how to access the calendar of another upTUdate participant.
In this example Toni Tester accesses the calendar of Paula Proband, who set the permission level in the above example:

Screenshot: Open shared calendar
Screenshot: Select name
Screenshot: View of the shared calendar

Toni Tester sees now subject and place from the appointments of test person Paula , but not from the private appointments!

Share calendar for a group

The screenshots show how you can share your calendar with a group (e.g. an upTUdate permission group or an organization group).

In this example, Toni Tester releases his calendar for group E020.upTUdate.

Screenshot: Share calendars with a group
Screenshot: Open address book
Screenshot: Select group
Screenshot: Send the release invitation

All members of the E020.upTUdate group will now receive an email inviting them to open Toni Tester's calendar.

Please note:
If you release your calendar for an upTUdate permission group or an organization group, all members of the group will receive a message, but of course only those members who have an activated upTUdate mailbox can actually access the calendar.

Visibility of private appointments

Please note that marking appointments as "Private" (symbol: padlock) does NOT guarantee that the details of the appointment will not be viewed by others under any circumstances!

This is only guaranteed for MS Outlook clients. In other client programs the private details could still become visible.

As an alternative, you can enter the private appointments in your own second calendar, which you do not share. If the private absence is also relevant for business, you can make this known by entering an additional appointment with a neutral name (e.g. "Private appointment") in the business calendar. In MS Outlook, both calendars can be displayed simultaneously next to each other or - even more clearly - overlapping. Some clients for mobile devices also have this capability.

Another alternative is to set the access rights to "Free/Busy" only (at least not "All Details").

(The described peculiarity is known to Microsoft and cannot be changed by ...)  

Exchange cache mode: Caution trap!

The option "Download shared folders" has proven to be a trap!

In the account settings (Outlook 2013) in the tab "Advanced" the option "Download shared folders" can be checked.

As a result, you can make certain changes to folders (for which you have read but not write permission, for example) without (!) getting an error message, which will be undone during the next refresh!

Integration of the calendar in Mozilla Thunderbird

To use the upTUdate calendar in Mozilla Thunderbird you need two add-ons: Lightning and Exchange EWS Provider. Lightning integrated in newer Thunderbird versions extends Thunderbird by a calendar function. The Exchange EWS Provider, which is neither integrated in Thunderbird nor can be found over the Add-on search, offers the interface to the Exchange calendar.

You can use the Out of Office Assistant in Outlook and in Outlook Web Access to configure that each email is automatically answered with a text provided by you during your absence.
