OWA Calendar


Recently i have created a public Calendar for Other Companies to login and check on the event happening in the firm. This is very good but only limited feature. I want know if any experts out that would know if there's a way to change the view of OWA calendar appt.

In Outlook 2003 and xp, you can change feature like seeing active appts, events and then print it out. However in OWA the view feature is limited to today schedule, 1 week and 1 month. Is there a way to allow me to have capability like the full outlook? thx

When you use Microsoft Exchange Server Outlook Web Access (OWA) to list the views on a folder, custom views created by Microsoft Outlook do not show up in the view selector. Custom views created by the Microsoft Exchange client are available.

This is because OWA does not read views stored in Outlook format. In order to access these views using OWA, save the views in Exchange format using Outlook. This can be done in Outlook by opening the properties page of the folder and selecting Automatically Generate Microsoft Exchange Views on the General Tab.

Hi bthomasian,

My outlook already has "automatically generate ms exchange view" enable but still not able to see view i want in OWA.

In outlook 2003, i have an option of viewing activate appointment in table. Is this view available in OWA?
Hi jli168,

So, let me get this straight, when your in the Microsoft Exchange client, you can create and apply personal views to quickly view information in any folder you choose. The personal views you create in the Exchange client will not automatically be available when you log on to the Outlook client or the Outlook Web Access client because the personal view is not stored inside the individual folder, but is stored as a hidden property in your Exchange Server mailbox. This personal view is not shown in the Outlook and Outlook Web Access clients.

This is the workaround from Microsoft:
To work around this problem, you can copy the personal view in the Exchange client to a folder view, which will then be available when you use the Outlook client or the Outlook Web Access client.

To copy a personal view to a folder view, perform the following steps:

1. Start the Exchange client.  
2. Select the folder you want to copy your personal view to, such as your Inbox folder, then from the Tools menu, point to Application Design, and then click Copy Folder Design.  
3. In the "Copy design from this folder" dialog box, select the Mailbox <username>.  
4. Also, ensure the check box for Forms and Views is selected in the "Copy design of" dialog box, and then click OK.  
5. When you are prompted at the "If any folder design conflicts exist the changes you are copying will take precedence" dialog box, click Yes.  
Your personal views are now stored inside your Inbox folder and can be seen in the Outlook and Outlook Web Access clients.

In Outlook, you can see the personal view by selecting your Inbox folder. From the View menu, click Current View, and the Personal Views will be displayed on the pop-up menu.

In the Outlook Web Access client, select your Inbox folder and select the view from the view dropdown list on the toolbar menu.

For more information on publishing Outlook views for the Outlook Web Access client, please see the following Microsoft Knowledge

Hope this helps?

So exchange client is really outlook..
Correct, sorry, wasn't clear, and Exchange client would be one of the flavors of Outlook. Maybe you can do it in Entourage too, that's why the steps called for "the Exchange client" rather then just saying Outlook.
