Free-Busy time only?


R

Randy Howard

We want to have a user's shared calendar to only show ''free/busy'' times
and not let other users see what the meeting details are. Is there a nice
way of setting a user's calendar to do this by default rather than having to
open up every meeting and change to private??

Thanks!

Randy,

If things are working correctly, you would only see free/busy details for
someone else if you have some sort of permissions on their Calendar folder.
So, the first thing I would check are the permissions on the Calendar folder
for the users whose free/busy details are showing up when other users
schedule them for a meeting. The default permission on the Calendar folder
is "Default = None" which means no one should see free/busy details by
default.

Hope this helps.

I am aware of the calendar folder permissions, however I don't think what we
want to do is an option. We would like everyone just to see if the user is
busy or not and just not the details as to what that user is doing. So if I
want to share my calendar, I want others just to see when I'm busy but not
what I'm busy doing.

Changing the default = none prohibits all users from seeing anything unless
otherwise noted right?

Thanks.

Randy,

Thanks for the update.

It sounds like you want to:

1. Set the Default permissions to None.
2. Explicitly add each user with which you want to share your Calendar
folder and give them the desired permissions.

If you have given anyone permissions other than None, then they can always
do File - Open other user's folder and select your calendar folder (and see
all the details for non-private items). Anyone else not given explicit
permissions to your Calendar folder will be able to see your Free/Busy
information but no details.
