view shared internet calendar


J

Jeannie

I have Outlook 2007 (but not Exchange). I published a calendar to two
people. One has Outlook 2007. She received an invitation to subscribe,
setup a Windows LIve ID and everything works. She can see a copy of the
shared calendar in her Outlook 2007.

The second person is the problem. She doesn't have Outlook 2007 setup in
her office. Shouldn't she be able to connect to the Windows live browser and
see the calendar? She has a Live ID account, but each time she goes to My
Profile, and then Share Calendar Service it won't bring up the area that
allows you to type in a calendar name. It just generates a help screen.
Help!

there is a button in the invite that says "preview"... she needs to click
it. The url is something like this -
https://calendars.office.microsoft.com/en-us/pubcal/viewer.aspx?path=/pubcalstorage/[stuff
specific to the calendar].htm

Instead of the button, she may have url in the message body -
"Alternatively, you can view this content on the Web at:
https://calendars.office.microsoft.com/pubcalstorage/[stuff specific to the
calendar].htm

The URL is the same as the webcal url (in the invite), but with https
instead of webcal at the beginning and HTM instead of ics at the end.

One of the problems is that she didn't get an invite. When I try to go
through the process of publishing and inviting her a second time I get an
error message that says something about the server failed.

Is the only way she can access this information is through an invite?

Yes, she needs the invite or at least the url from the sent copy. Rather
than republish it, try sending her just the url. If she doesn't use a
calendar program, she needs the HTML URL. Most calendar programs, other
than old versions of Outlook, can open the ics.

to make an html url from the webcals:// url, replace webcals with https - on
the end, replace ics with htm. She will need to log in using a live id that
was invited.

if she was not on the original invite, you need to unpublish it and
republish it, including her live id when you republish.
