Sharing Outlook Schedule or Sync Calendar for Group



Can we create a group/department calendar?

Each person maintains their own calendar in Outlook, but sync that
information to a group calendar? Point being that a post would only have to
be made once to their Outlook calendar, there would not be a list of 30
Outlook "People" Calendars.

Or can we create a "group" under People's Calendars and be able to select
this group and view everyone's schedule within the that group on one calendar.

Lastly, if I can't do any of the above, is there a way for me to setup a
group Outlook Schedule and than share that with everyone in the department?

We do have access to Microsoft Exchange, but that would still mean that a
person would be posting appointments on their own Outlook calendar and than
on the shared calendar?

Thank you

With Exchange, I would set up a mail enabled calendar in public folders and
have the users create meeting requests 'inviting' PF calendar - or create
the appointments in the PF calendar and click the add to personal calendar

There are also utilities that can be used to sync the personal and public
calendars. See
