This may be more of an Exchange Server question...nonethless I am confident of getting an excellent answer here!

Friends, what we have here is a branch office that is part of a much larger organization.  The public folder hierarchy is something like organization - location - branch office.

What we need to do is setup a calendar for this office only.  We will need to submit a ticket to the national org to bring this about, and I need a refresher course in what goes into setting this up.  I have done it in the pat.

We require a calendar owned by the boss that can be made visible to all employees at this site, but which is not necessarily available to those outside.  We want to do all the caldendar stuff -- have ticklers sent out, assign tasks etc.

What goes into setting up a calendar like this.  Drawing a blank, though I've done it before.

Thanks!

JJ

First you will need someone at the Branch office that has access and rights to administrate the public folders. Generally if it is 1 set of public folders across the entire organization, the home office will be the only place where someone has administrative rights to create in there.
So, someone at your branch will need to contact someone at main office, request them to create a calendar in the public folders appropriately named for your branch also naming someone in your branch as an owner to the calendar.
Once that is done, the person at your branch named as owner can go in and finish assigning the rights to the other people in your organization by right clicking on the calendar, clicking properties and then go into the security tab and putting in the proper permissions.

Hope that clears it up a little. If it's a little too vague I apologize, but it is Monday and I'm not officially awake until Wednesday.
