Link calendar in public folder to personal calendar

hi there,

here's another one. i have a public folder with calendar items on an exchange 2003 server. now some of the users want me to link their calendar to this public folder. the idea behind this is that when i enter an appointment for them in the public folder it should automatically replicate to their personal calendar. is this possible?

Not in simple terms no. What you could do is have a look at www.mxcontact.com and depending on how many users u have and what your budget is, consider it as a solution for proper contact and calendar handleing in outlook/exchange.

Hi, 101Consultancy.

Outlook does not have a built-in means of doing this.  The closest you could come would be to use the folder assistant on the public folder and create a rule that would forward all new items to the users in question.  That wouldn't add the appointments to their calendar, but it would forward a copy of the appointment to them.  They'd have to accept it to add it to their calendar.  I don't know that this solution would be able to cope with updates or changes.  I don't think the folder assistant reacts to anything but new items being added.

I would onject to a close with no points as the question was ".....is this possible?"

The answer is that in outlook and exchange only No it is not, as I answered in the very first post.

The fact that the answer, although correct, is not the one you wanted to hear, is not reason to close and not assign the points.
