Shared Exchange 2000 calendar

By infoguy ·
I've been asked to create a "common" calendar for all my Exchange 2000 users. Ideally, the default calendar in Outlook 2002 would be this shared calendar. This one calendar would contain each users's appointments, but each user would only see their own appointments plus other appointments from their active directory group(s). I've been searching the web and reading the Exchange 2000 Server Admin. Companion, but to no avail - I've seen nothing similar to this. I'd prefer to do this without resorting to third-party software, but I haven't ruled that out. So my problems are thus: 1) how to change the default calendar in Outlook 2002 2) how to prevent users from seeing anything they are not supposed to see on this shared calendar. Thanks in advance for the help.

Have a look at this:

Or you could create a public Folder with a calendar and have people post there. Not really possible to do exactly what you are trying to do.

Hope this helps somewhat.

Yes, this looks like my best shot. Thank you.

I'm sorry, but I have to ask... Why??? Why would you need a common calendar when you can check anyone's availability? Is it that mgt wants to be able to see the actual, specific info for each user?

To keep it simple for the end users - easier to have one calendar than to try to keep track of several.

Depending on the number of users, you may want to create "department' calendars due to the limitation of viewable entries on a day.
After creating the calendars, right click on it and set permissions.
I also suggest a separate one for Resources -like conference rooms, shared equipment - projectors, vans, etc. with 1 or 2 people setup with 'Owner' permissions.

The Personal Calendar is then used for non business appointments.

Must be only one calendar. Good thought though.

Use public folder and create a folder of the type calender. This will then be listed in all outlook clients. You can set permissions on this folder so that users can only edit there own items etc.

This is what we do in our office and it works atreat.
