Enforcing Shared Calendars in Outlook with Group Policy

Posted on 2006-06-06
Last Modified: 2010-05-18
Our organisation is insisting all users share their calendars with Reviewer access being made the default. I have downloaded OUTLK11.adm file and imported it into Administrative Templates within Group Policy Editor. Although there are dozens of configurable settings, none appears to be relative to this problem. Does anyone know if it is possible?
Thanks in advance.

    Hello agedmcse!

    Ugh!  I had to do the same thing for management.  But, the only way I could get it to work correctly was to go to each PC and share appropriatley.  I checked with our corporate administrator and was told that it could not be done centrally.  If there's a simple way to accomplish this without the use of third-party software, I'd love to know about it too!

    Hi agedmcse,

    Have a look at this:

    Based on the information presented here I'm thinking there may not be a GPO solution or it would be listed.  It looks like you might be able to do this at the Exchange server though using one of these tools.

    Thanks for the pointers, I am currently evaluating the suggestions but am certain one will fit the bill.
