Transferring ownership of recurring appointments
Posted on 2009-02-09
This might be wishful thinking but... I was wondering if anyone has some advice on how to manage recurring appointments organized by a user who is no longer with the company. So far I've given her replacement full access to her calendar. This has become confusing because the updates to occurances or the series appear to come from the former user. The appointments are firm meetings that have about 12 people as attendees, plus the corporate calendar and a conference room as resources.
I'm trying to avoid cancelling the meeting from the former users' mailbox and then having the her replacement schedule another one from her calendar.
Is there a clean way to transfer the ownership (organizer) to a different user in exchange? Perhaps a 3rd party app or even a lengthy roundabout way to accomplish the same thing would be fine since it would only be a 1-time thing (at least in my current case).
