Sharing a Calendar


W

William Lewis, MCP

We want to create a new calendar in Outlook, say 'Finance' and share it
without the default one being shared and are having trouble to get it to work
right.

First we create the new calendar in the users mailbox, share it, assign the
permissions to the specific users and make sure that the folder is Visible.

When I go to one of the users who needs the access, I click Open a Shared
Calendar, navigate to the user who's calendar is being share (Finance) and
open up their default instead. We do not see the Finance Calendar.

We tried to create it in their public folders, but they do not have
permission to do so.

All of the articles I have read say that what I've done should work...but it
doesn't.

Any ideas?

BTW, we are running Server 2003, Exchange 2003 and Office 2003.

I tried that and still no good.

Instead the other person was still able to see the default calendar AND the
other persons mailbox.

We just need to share the new calendar only.

if the permissions are set correctly, they will only be able to access the
calendar folder - all folders they do not have permission to will not be
visible. This would be folder visible permission only to the mailbox root
and reviewer or better to the folder you want to share. Since it’s a
subfolder, you need to give folder visible permission to the parent folder
too.

I double checked everything twice. Still no good. Only the default calendar
shows and not the new one.
