Outlook 2007 Calendar-cannot share calendar with Free/Busy Permiss



  • 1. can Calendar sent alerts to all users sharing the mailbox?
    We have set up a shared mailbox including the calendar. We want to set it up so that when an appointment is approaching, the alert appears on each person's Pc, but if one person dismisses the reminder, it dismisses it for everyone. We are running Office 2000 on the desktops with the Exchange Server running Exchange v5.5. Does anyone know a way of doing this, or of any tools that can do this? thanks for any help you can give.
  • 2. Outlook 2000 web calendar Y2005 incorrect
    When I save a calendar as a web page using Outlook 2000, January 1st. 2005 starts on Friday instead of Saturday like it should. Subsequently, any year 2005 appointments are displayed on the wrong day. The normal Outlook calendar has January 1st 2005 starting on Saturday as it should. I'm knocking my head trying to find out why. Did Outlook forget 2004 was leap year? Problems with web publishing wizard version 1.52?
  • 3. Events Missing - Other User's Folder (Calendar)
    Here's the scenario: Outlook XP and 2003 / Exchange 2000 SP3 Jane and Jill both have editor rights to Bob's calendar and can view the calendar by opening other users folder>calendar. All three might show the same event at the correct time on their individual calendars, however, when Jane (publishing editor rights to Bob's calendar) views Bob's calendar 2 of the events are missing. The events are not marked private on Bob's calendar and in fact Jane may be the Organizer for the event. Jill (reviewer rights to Bob's calanedar) can view all of the events on Bob's calendar. Makes sense? Any thoughts?
  • 4. Missing items on a shared calendar
    I've been reading through the newsgroup here and haven't seen anyone post a remedy for the 'disappearing calendar entries" problem that a lot of people seem to have. I have two users, one (owner) who has shared out her calendar (given editor permissions) and there were a TON of entries for the next few months. Owner subsequently moved to another location, and had her account moved from one exchange server (exchange 2000) to another, and soon after that all of her appointments for sept. to december disappeared. Both are using Outlook 2000 (one with SP-3, and the other with SR-1). I've told the owner of the calendar to get her office installation updated but something tells me that won't fix it. I've tried changing the date locally on the editors pc, as I saw that may take care of it on technet, but that didn't work either. Any ideas?

    When I receive meeting invitations from external clients, the invitation appears as an email and I am not able to auto-populate my calender by accepting the meeting.

Outlook 2007 Calendar-cannot share calendar with Free/Busy Permiss

Postby VGllcjIgU3VwcG9ydA » Sun, 24 Jan 2010 03:15:01 GMT

I have a manager that insists that she could share her calendar and give only 
Free/Busy permissions and the recipient could only see the blocked times 
without being able to open/read anything.
When I try to share my calendar using "Share My Calendar" or manually 
entering the Permissions for a recipient, the only way that they can see 
anything is if it is set to Reviewer/Full Details. The Free/Busy seems to 
work only when using the Scheduling Assistance where it shows you the 
recipients blocked times so that meetings don't conflict. I tried copying my 
calendar and the Permissions no longer show the Free/Busy option.
Is it possible to share the calendar with only Fee/Busy and no details?

I've read the steps in three different books and can't get the Free/Busy

1) My calendar props dialog doesn't show a Permissions tab so that I can set

3.Sharing Calendar via "Free/Busy time, subject, location"

I am using Outlook 2007 SP1 (with Exchange Server 2007 (

I've shared my calendar by giving my colleagues a permission level of 
"Free/Busy time, subject, location". I've also enabled "Folder visible" 

However, when my colleagues view my calender (by using the "Open a 
Shared Calendar..." option) the calendar is empty - none of my entries 
are visible. I expected meetings along with subject and location to be 
visible to them but nothing is visible. It appears that all calendar is 
free (clear of any entries).

My colleagues can view the free/busy, subject, location (but not the 
full details) only when they try to setup a new meeting and use the 
"Scheduling Assistant" to schedule a meeting with me.

Is there any way that they can view my calendar entries - by using the 
"Open a Shared Calendar..." option - but without me sharing the calendar 
with them at the "Full Details"/"Reviewer" permission level? Instead I 
would prefer to use "Free/Busy time, subject, location" permission level.
