yackshemesh!

i've created some resource system users and want to grant their calendars to be viewed by other users.  I've added in a group from the global address list with 'all users' in it and given it 'publishing author' permissions; but when i try to create a meeting using that resource, my users are getting errors. so i've gone back and taken out the group as a publishing author and added in my users one at a time.

Can this be correct?! I mean, imagine if i had a meeting room as a resource for 400 users!? How painful would that be?!

what 'errors' are your users getting?

the group that contains all users, does it contain all users individually, or is it nested with other groups? Try creating a new mail-enabled group and add a few test users individually, then assign this group the permissions.

what do you mean exactly when you say 'when i try to create a meeting using that resource'? Are you creating a meeting and 'inviting' the resource? If that's all you're doing, you don't even need permissions on the calendar

i'm creating a meeting and adding the resource as a resource. unless the user who's requesting the resource in the meeting is implicitly named in the share permissions on the resource user's calendar, they get the error: ""the operation failed. an object could not be found. unable to directly book a resource for this meeting.""
