Distribute Company Wide Events

Of course, R5 is going to obsolete this, but those folks planning on hanging onto R4.x systems for a while, occaisionally you want to distribute company wide events.

We programmed a button and sent it to our division in an email. The button contained the code below, and the email contained the following:

The Holidays for the division for 1999 have been announced. The button at the bottom of this memo will add the holidays to your personal calendar in Notes. Clicking the button below will present you with three options.

YES - Add all the 'official' Akron holidays, plus add 'informational' holidays (Valentines day, Easter, Passover, etc). The 'informational' holidays are added in such a way that they do not block time on your schedule.

NO - Add only the 'official' Akron holidays.

CANCEL - Exit and return to this note without adding any holidays.

NOTE: Because the entries do not take time on the freetime calendar, I did no checking of any kind to see if the entry was a duplicate. This runs fairly quickly, and we didn't want to consume run time on the user's client!
