I need help with syncing Outlook and SharePoint calendars. Running Moss 2007; Outlook - Exchange 2007
Created a calendar in Sharepoint and under Actions - Connect to Outlook.
Opened up my calendars side by side in Outlook and copied outlook events over to SP calendar and SP events over to Outlook, however, since these really are just being copied, how do they sync up? I made a change to each calendar and of course, the SP calendar being viewed in outlook had the changes after a Tools/SendReceive/This folder, but the event on the outllook calendar did not change. Same thing with outlook made a change in the outlook calendar and the change did not work on the SharePoint calendar.
Is there a setting or connector that I need to have our Exchange guy make or is there a setting in outlook I can make?
Thanks

That needs to be custom developed as that is not supported out of the box, Here is a link that explains the functionality and more links there :

Once again with "custom" development SharePoint falls short in its ability to be a great content management tool.

Thanks for trying.

That's true, SharePoint is more of a platform rather than a complete full lifecycle product, It provides a platform to build great things however again custom developed :)
