Link one of the Calendar (Reserve a Projector) from the Intranet

We have created a Calendar where people can reserve a project. I would like to have a link on the intrAnet that would directly take the users to this calendar and reserve if need be.

We use Outlook 2003 and do not have SharePoint.

I have read a few previous questions but did not quite get the answer.
Thanks

Greetings, ssdanish.

As you know links start begin with the type of protocol the link refers to.  Links begining with http use the http protocol, whereas a link that begins with ftp will use the ftp protocol.  Outlook has its own protocol so a link's URL can begin with Outlook.  The URL format is otherwise the same.  So, for example, a link that looks like this outlook://Public%20Folders/All%20Public%20Folders/Project%20Calendar would cause Outlook to open the public folder called "Project Calendar".  Make sense?

Cheers!

Thanks BDF. Not exactly what I was looking for (I wanted to have a link which would open the calendar of another person called 'Digital Projector', everyone has access to this), but I just created a calendar in the All Public Folder and then the the above mentioned URL works perfect!

If I dont hear from you, I will just accept this as answer tomorrow.

Thanks

Using Public Folders was only an example.  You can use any valid URL, you aren't restricted to a path taking you to a public folder.

But that is not a public folder, 'Digital Projector' is actually an account, like an actual person account.

I understand it's not a public folder.  As I said, the URL I gave was only to show the capabilty.  All you need to do is change the URL to the path of the calendar in the other person's account.  I have no idea what the mailbox and folder names are so it's impossible for me to write that URL out for you.  You can figure it out by turning on the web toolbar in Outlook (View->Toolbars->Web), selecting this calendar in the folder list, and looking back at the web toolbar.  You should see a URL there that begins with Outlook.

the mail box name is Digital Projector and the folder is Calendar

Anyways, I am happy with the first answer for now. Thanks for the help!

You're welcome.  

To change a rating you'll need to post a message in the Support area (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/) asking one of the moderators to either change the rating or re-open the question so you can close it again and chose a different rating.  Please don't go to a lot of trouble though, I'm okay with a "B".
