Abstract: Knowledge Sharing (K-Sharing) is an important element which leads to wealth of knowledge to individual and organization. Knowledge Management (KM) and K-Sharing are being promoted by KM practitioners, yet the issue here is about the tool and mechanism which is available and capable to support the activity of K-Sharing. The purpose of this study is to prove the capability of the Desktop Calendaring (DC) as a tool/platform in assisting the sharing of knowledge. People now perceive sharing as a burden and an added task to their routine. Hence we would like to prove that a proper and simple tool like DC can help the daily routine to be conducted and yet indirectly establishing the KSharing culture. This study is supported by assessment exercises participated by 35 randomly selected respondents who tried the DC for a period of 4-6 months. Our assessments questions were based on 5 main factors which are: (I) Less Equivocal Knowledge (II) Repeated Task (III) Ease Of Use (IV) Low Cost and (V) Awareness. This paper aims to prove that a proper and simple tool like DC has the capability to facilitate sharing of knowledge in the organizational environment.
