I need to setup a user's Outlook calendar so it automatically adds events to a 2nd user's calendar as well

Bigchingan used Ask the Experts™
I need to setup one of our Outlook user's calendars so that it automatically pushes out it's events to another user so they can view events at all times.

I am aware of delegate users but I don't think this is exactly what I'm looking for. The secondary user needs to be able to access the calendar events on their mobile phone as well as using webmail and I don't think they'd have that capability as a delegate.

Is there a way to have events pushed out or copied to a second user or otherwise set this up?

Also, if delegating users is the solution I'm looking for...from what I've found so far this has to be setup in Outlook and not from the AD Users & Computers module like everything else with AD.

Any help would be appreciated.

There is no way to do this with builtin functionality.  You will need to script this, which can be done.  This question has the basic info you will want to look for:\

You should not have any issues viewing the calendar items on a mobile when using the delegate option. You will need to setup the delegation on the mailbox from Outlook.



They will be able to see the calendar in webmail as well?

What am I supposed to do with that VBA script? Is the something I setup as a scheduled task?

Just pointing me to a script without an explanation isn't much help as that's not my area of expertise.

I was able to find the solution via another question I opened:

What worked for me was a product called DavSync by Davton Consulting. The people there were extremely helpful with the setup and thorough with their product information.


I had been looking for a product that is capable of this for a long time and am glad I finally found this!

Thanks again for your help.
