Workflow for group work

just wondering if there is a documentation for "how to organize group 
work with kolab"? In our setup the kolab server is needed to show a 
group calender to plan meetings and to see what meetings somebody else has.

So far I setup a distribution list where everybody is subscribed to, so 
one has only to send one invitation instead of sending one to every 
single person for a complete group meeting (about 15 people).
One problem was how to seperate the business and private events in the 
calender: So I created another group account named 
"calender_group at" which is also subscribed to the group 
distribution list and publicly visible. This account gets an invitation 
for every business meeting from every worker. Therefore, this calender 
has all the business events and group events and there is no need to 
grant access to the personal calender since Kolab shows also details of 
private events.

Now, this solutions seems to be rather complicated especially since 
there has to be an invitation for every single meeting to the group 
calendar to make it visible to others. Is there an easier way to get the 
described functionallity? Is it possible to show at least the subject of 
the event in the freebusy information (outlook shows private for private 
events in my personal folder)?
