Importing .ics files into another user's Outlook 2007 calendar
Posted on 2010-04-05
I have a user that is having trouble importing an .ics file into her boss' Outlook 2007 calendar (all accounts on our Exchange 2003 server). Here is what she is trying to do:
Secretary receives an .ics file from the office that fills out the boss' clinic schedule. The .ics file is attempted to be imported by using File, Import/Export option. The appoitments unfortunately are imported to the Secretary's calendar and not her boss's calendar.
Before we upgraded the secretary to Outlook 2007, she was using Outlook 2003 and this was working just fine. I have tried to duplicate this behavior by taking a copy of the .ics file and importing it into my test Exchange mailbox from my Outlook 2007 account (also on Exchange). Again, it would import to my own personal calendar. However, I went to a PC with Outlook 2003 still installed and tried to import the .ics file to my test account and it worked fine.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
