Share Outlook Calendar?

By durand admin ·
Does anyone know of a way to have two workstations on a network see the same calendar events in Outlook? My boss would like to have his secretary make changes to the calendar on her workstation and he would then see the changes on his calendar and vice versa. Can this be done in Outlook? Is there a better program for doing this? Thanks. -Brian

This can easily be done through delegation. I'm assuming you're using exchange and outlook as a client. Firt, go to your boss's computer and delegate permission to the specify person. In outlook, go to "tools" and then "options." In options go to the "delegates" tab and add the user name. Check all the options that you want to person to be responsible for and then exit out.

Now you go to the secretary's computer and then add the boss's mail box. You can do this in "tools" > "services" and the click "properties" of the microsoft exchange server and then go to advanced tab and add in the mail box. After you have added the mailbox then you can expand the mailbox and go to calendar. here you can edit, delete or print what's on the boss's calendar. Hope this help.

Thanks for the suggestion, but we are not using Exchange, just Outlook. I checked the options dialog box and there is no delegates tab. These are just two of the workstations on a file sharing network. Thanks.

There is another way to share the folders. It's called netfolders. Both of the machines will have to be connected to the internet. It is like when you send/receive mail you also get that persons calendar.

You should be able to look it up in help.Let me know if you need more info.
