How do I share my DEFAULT Outlook 2007 calendar in SharePoint V3?

By abeljames ·
I am running Outlook 2007 (no Exchange) using PST files for my default mail/calendar. We also have a company SharePoint site running V3. I would like to make our DEFAULT Outlook Calendars visible on the SharePoint site.

So far I have created new calendars in SharePoint (SP)and linked them to Outlook, I have also managed to link a SP list calendar item as an Internet Calendar in Outlook but cannot get my default calendar to show in SP. Ideally I would like to be able to manage updates/permissions as any other SP document as well.

The second 'work around' from Microsoft in the link below suggests that this is possible but I get an error when I try to open the SP shortcut link so I cannot get this to work.

Thanks in advance.

What is the error message?

I tried that link and it worked for me without any error. I dont think that is solution to your question. It added an internet calendar as separate calendar under "Other's Calendars" section.
This is same as you create a calendar in SP and the connect it with Oultook. Isn't it?

I have understood from your query that you wanted to show your outlook calendar in SP. Also if you make any changes in Outlook calendar that should sync with SP. You also want to give different rights for people.

Please correct me if I am wrong

Cheers !

Sharing your default Outlook Calendar

by abeljames In reply to what is the error message

I tried this again later and it has worked, but as you say it is not what I really want. I want the Default Calendar in Outlook to be shared via SP just like the additional calendars that you can add and share.
Do you know a way that I can make a specific Outlook calendar the default one? That would be a solution.

Yes default calendar in my default PST file

Yes exactly that. I want this default calendar to be available to SharePoint and managed from either SP or Outlook. Just like other shared SP calendars.

Third party WebPart

You will need to add third party webpart to accomplish this. There is a webpart called "Owacalendar.dwp" from Microsoft that can be used to integrate exchange mailbox calendar. I don't know if it works for pst file with no exchange. Moreover, I can't find that webpart anywhere so that I can try myself.

I have found something that can help:

Edited on 22/06/2009: I got it working with exchange by using page viewer web part. I followed following link:
