How to connect to an Outlook calendar with non-standard name
Posted on 2007-07-19
Shared Calendar Question: My organization uses a shared public calendar to view appointments and events. Others also share their personal calendars amongst themselves. I have a small group of people that want to share a calendar, so I decided not to make it a public calendar. I wanted to share this calendar from the account of the person heading up this group.
Rather than share "Jane Doe's" default calendar with personal appointments I made a new one on her account. Here's my problem. Everyone in our company uses Outlook 2003 - EXCEPT I have Outlook 2007. I thought I'd be slick and set up the calendar by signing in as Jane on my computer. I created the calendar, sent out the invitation for the share, and logged out. I then logged in with my account, opened the invitation and opened the calendar. No problem until...
When I go to the other (Outlook 2003) users with the shared permission they can't connect because the name of the calendar isn't "Jane Doe" (i.e. the name of the exchange account). Is there a way for an Outlook 2003 user to connect to a shared calendar that is named other than another's user name?
