Public folder - Calendar sharing

Posted on 2004-11-30

I am attempting to set up a public folder so all employees have a master calendar to track meetings, when people are out of town, vacation, etc.  I would like for each employee to view their personal calendar side-by-side with the company one.  I am unable to figure out how to set up the side by side feature with a public folder.  Also, when setting up meetings I would like to be able to 'invite' the company calendar so the meeting can be viewed even by those not included in the meeting.

Any ideas on how to do this?

    This may help..
    The side by side view I don't see how to get that going with a public folder either but you could just create a mailbox and give people access to that calendar and then they can do a File, Open, Other users folder from outlook and that will put them side by side.

    For the invite of the company calendar to invite it that has to be setup as a resource (real mailbox) not a public folder and then you can even do an auto accept.

    I found a great resource manager tool that is pretty cheap and saves alot of overhead time supporting these things.  Check this out.\

    You don't mention what version of Outllok you use, so I don't know if this'll help.  This explains exactly how to do in Outlook 2003 without regard to where the calendar is.
