Hi all,


When I enter a new event for iCal, the dialog box that is displayed has a field called "Location".  However, anything we enter there results in an exclamation point shown in front of the entery like this: This suggest that the entry is invalid.


We might have use for this field, but I have no clue as to how a location is used, entered, or managed.

Could this be something needed in Open Director?


Anyone have a suggestion about this?





We use Lion Server. All clients are up on Lion as well all 4 clients and the server are up on  the latest versions.

Greetings Ken,


The location field in iCal is meant for use with a CalDAV server which has locations defined for clients to access.  If you aren't using a server which has locations defined you get the exclamation mark.  You can still use the field and type in a location manually (and ignore the exclamation point): http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2513


If you are using Lion Server, talk to your server admin to have them define locations for your purposes:
