  • Calendar Permission

    Hi,

    I just need some clarification and help with calendar sharing, we require that everyone in the office has editor rights to everyones calendars.

    After doing lots of reading I thought that if I make the default calendar permission editor on all users calendars that people would be able to add and edit each others calendars, but this does not appear to be the case.

    The command I ran was
    Set-Mailboxfolderpermission -identity <USER>:\calendar -user 'default' -AccessRight editor
    and I ran this on all users mailboxes

    After applying this command I can open everyone's calendars now, but I can't add any new appointments, when I try I get the following message
    "You don't have permission to create and entry in this folder...."

    Can anyone tell me if you change the default user, does that allow all users to edit each others calendars?

    Also any suggestions to be able to apply editor rights to all users calendars?

    If you are going to use the "Default" (which is not something I tend to recommend) then you will also have to update the Free/Busy section as well:

    Set-MailboxFolderPermission "your_mailbox:\non_ipm_subtree\freebusy data" -User default -AccessRights author

    However my preference is to create a special group, or use the All Staff equivalent group, so it is obvious what it is.

    Don't forget the permissions change isn't live, so if it doesn't work immediately, wait an hour or two.

    Simon.

      Hi Sembee,

      I applied that change to the Free/Busy command that you gave me to all mailboxes and have waited a day, but we still get the error

      "You don't have permission to create and entry in this folder...."

      when trying to add an appointment to peoples calendars. Are there any other suggestions to make everyones calendar editable on our system?

        Have you tried it by using a group, rather than default?
        I personally don't recommend using "Default" and prefer to use a group specifically for the task.

        Simon.

          Hi,

          I tried to add it via a group but must have the command wrong and couldn't get it to add the group. Can you tell me what the command is to add the group to the calendar permissions.

          I understand once I have that group then I can just change the user to that group.

            The group has to be mail enabled to be used by Exchange, and you have to set it with the email address of the group:

            get-mailbox | Add-MailboxFolderPermission :\Calendar -User [email protected] -AccessRights Reviewer
