I'm having a really dumb moment right now.  I'm sure this is possible.

My client wants the companyweb calendar to be edited by ONLY his admin.  Everyone can read what is on it.  He doesn't want anyone but her to make changes.  There will be three calendars and she will have full access over them.  Anyone else will only be able to read.  

Thanks for your help on such a simple question (at least I think it is but can't figure it out.)

Hi there

With the calendar open in your browser, click Settings then List Settings.  Then click "Permissions for this list".  Initially, the settings are read-only as they are inherited from the parent (the site as a whole).  Therefore, click Actions then "Edit permissions" and click "yes" to the warning message.  The permissions are now specific to this calendar.

You'll see a members, owners, and visitors group.  The visitors group has read-only access already, but your staff will be in the members group so you need to click on "CompanyWeb members" untick "Design" and tick "Read".

Repeat for each of the 3 calendars.

You should be sure that your admin is a member of the owners group.

Unfortunately, when clicking Settings then List Settings, "Permissions for this list" does not appear.  I've created the 3 calendars under the user that I am logged in under.  She is a standard user on the domain.  I'm trying to get that worked through as well for local administrator rights.

You'll need to be logged in as a member of the "CompanyWeb owners" group in order to see the Permissions link.

If i'm logged in as the domain administrator, shouldn't that automatically make me a memeber of the companyweb owner's group?

Ok.  I'm dumb.  I wasn't logged in as the administrator.  So, I made the changes.  Now, how do I make myself and Kristin (calendar keeper) the only members of the companyweb owner's group?
