Outlook 2007 Shared Calendar and tasks. VERY Urgent


B

Bob

I have several users who are executive assitants to executives. All of them
currently use Outlook 2003. They have full access to their bosses Email
Inboxes, calendars and tasks. We are moving them to Office 2007, including
Outlook 2007. The problem lies in how 2007 displays the shared Tasks and
calendar. in 2003, you had the Tasks and calendar (of the shared inbox) in
the same view, allowing them to monitor both at once. I am unable to find the
same setting, or any setting that displays another users calendar and tasks
(both shared, editor permission granted) in the same view. Does this exist in
2007 and if so, how do I set it to display? I know it now displays your own
tasks below your calendar (if it is displaying 1 week or daily). It also
shows in your own To-Do bar. Can the shared users To-Do bar be displayed?
Help!

You can't add shared tasks to the to-do bar, or shared appointments for that
matter. You need to use the calendar folder to see shared calendars. Tasks
will be in the tasks module.

So this has changed in 2007 from 2003? This was a feature that these
executive assistants all found very useful.

Outlook 2003 didn't have a To Do bar.

Correct, the tasks won't carry over to the taskpad (which is at the bottom
of the calendar in 2007) when you view other calendars.
