exchange calendar

Morning,

Our company currently uses a company calendar that doesn’t seem to be functioning correctly.
I’ve decided to scrap it and start fresh as the thing is a disaster.

Question is how do a set up a new company calendar that everyone in the company can view but only a select few may edit?

Details,
We have a standalone server that runs exchange 2007 on microsoft server 2008 and acts as one of three domain controllers. Most users have office pro 07 and a few still use 03. Some users have outlook with BCM and use cached mode (don’t think that makes a difference just trying to give every detail).

Thanks in advance.

I ran into this issue myself. the first thing I wanted to immediately do is set up a public folder calendar and only give permissions to a select few. Upon doing some research (man I love google) I found that public folders are becoming the way of the past. Sharepoint is replacing public folders. WSS 3.0 is free (I think with the launch of sharepoint 2010 the foundation product is free too) and works great. If you have SBS it is included, if not you can download it from MS website. Make a calendar in sharepoint, set up permissions, then attach it to everyones outlook. With outlook 2007 (not any lower versions) the people who have write permissions can edit the calendar right from within outlook.

I hope this helps!

Yes people is 03 can still view SP 3.0 calendars, just not edit. I am not sure if SP 2010 supports Outlook 2003.

With sharepoint you can send them a link in email to the calendar and have each person attach it to outlook themselves. If you need help with this let me know.
