Outlook Share Calendar Permissions

I have a user that has setup a shared vacation calendar for their staff. The owner of the calendar has given reviewer rights to most of the staff, with the exception of three users (we will call them joe, sally and merry) write access.

The reviewer users are able to write to the calendar / delete items / make changes.

I am not sure why the reviewers are able to make changes, but need to know how to fix this.

Access Rights setup for Reviewers:
Read --> full details
Under Delete items --> nothing checked
Under write category --> nothing enabled
Under other category --> only option folder visible.

Thanks for any and all help.

Does a group have read, write and delete permissions to the calendar? If so, maybe those people are in that group as well as added individually.

I went through the permissions, and each user was added individually, there are no groups that were added with certain permissions. Would any other permissions that specific users have also carry over to the shared calendar (such as profile related permissions)??

I don't think so. Did you try removing them from the calendar permissions, update the free/busy and then re-adding them?

I did that with on user that was set as reviewer. I removed him completely, then re added him and made sure his permissions were set to reviewer only. Had the user close and open outlook and test and changes were still able to be made by that user.

Try creating another calendar and see if the permissions work properly there. If so, export the data from the old calendar and import it on the new calendar.
