RdvZ is a web application developed by the Université d’Avignon et des Pays de Vaucluse which allows to create and manage meetings and to poll potential attendee avalibility. The application allows both anonymous and authenticated access (it can be either with MySQL or with a CAS server + LDAP or with a LDAP server alone), but whatever the access mode, everybody is able to vote without being authenticated.
RdvZ is under GPLv3 licence.
The leader creates the meeting with several potential dates (it’s possible to choose several times the same date with different schedules) and give the URL address of the poll to the attendee. An attendee can vote as being available, available with restrictions, or not available at all, for one or several dates.
The meeting leader can the export the poll data to .csv format (readable by Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice Spreadsheet) or close the poll. The poll lifetime can be set in the configuration file.
RdvZ is developped with the web framework symfony and is based on a LAMP architecture (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP), so you need to setup a web server in order to run RdvZ. Your version PHP must be superior to 5.2.4 (but ideally not 5.2.9) ; MySQL is not required, almost every “popular” database are supported (PostGreSQL, Oracle, SQLite…).
