Hi
Is it possible to accept meeting requests without ever opening the Outlook client.
I have setup a user account with email where this particular users calendar is linked to Sharepoint.
its a business development calendar and what we want is for people to invite this particualr user so that all meetings appear in sharepoint.
However from testing this out the meetings only appear in sharepoint when i actually log into the user account on a pc and open outlook.

Any ideas if this is possible without opening outlook

Connect with Outlook to the malbox that receives the meeting requests. Go to:
Tools - Options - Calendar Options - Resource Scheduling

Select the "Automatically accept meeting requests and process cancellations"

Try again.

Sure.

Just log into outlook with this useraccount, and open up:

Tools -> Options
click the "Calendar Options" button
then click the "Resource Scheduling" button.

Here you can setup auto accept/decline settings.

Hi Folks,
Thanks for the reply, really appreciate it.
I had those settings already enabled,
Would it have anything to do with permissions. I have editor rights as it is but would i need something else?

You can either give the default user minimum "Author" rights, or you can give each user you want to be able to use this resource the permission.

Please note that if you give the Default user the right, all users will be able to use this resource.
