Using 'Add to Favourites' option on a shared calendar not working


A

abrough

In Outlook 2007 we have a few users who are unable to add a shared calendar
to their Calendars->Other Calendars list. The steps that work on a mojority
of computers are:
1. Go->Folder List.
2. Navigate to Public Folders->All Public Folders->...->Communal Calendar.
3. Right Click on Communal Calendar and select 'Add to Favourites'.
4. Click OK on 'Add to Favourites' dialog.
5. Go->Calendar and the calendar should have appeared under 'Other
Calendars' list.

However, in a few cases when OK is clicked in step 4 the calendar never
appears in the 'other calendars' list and no error messages are displayed.

Does anyone have any idea why this does not always work and/or any
sugestions to help?

Thanks
Alan

You could try restarting Outlook with the /resetnavpane switch, but it will
remove all folders from the navigation pane. Test it on one system where
the user doesn't have a lot of folders added first.
