We have an executive who has an assistant that manages her Outlook calendar. I've given the assistant "owner" permissions on the executive's mailbox and calendar and set it up as a secondary mailbox in her Outlook.
When the assistant goes to the executive's calendar in Outlook and creates a new appointment, selects attendees, etc and then sends the request, all the attendees receive it and it shows the meeting organizer as "<Assistant> on behalf of <Executive>".
When other employees accept the request, the event is placed on their calendars, but nothing shows up on the executive's calendar.
I verified this by doing the following:
1) At assistant's computer, opened the executives calendar
2) Created a new meeting request, invited myself
3) Sent the meeting request
4) Went back to my computer, accepted the meeting request
5) Opened the executive's calendar, the meeting I just created and accepted isn't listed
6) Opened the assistant's calendar, the meeting I just created and accepted isn't listed
Why isn't the meeting showing up on the executive's calendar? Does the executive need to be included on the list of attendees when the event is created? If so, is there a way the event can be made to automatically show up without the executive receiving and having to accept a meeting request?
