Shared Calendar Not Functioning

Our CEO is trying to get access to the Development Director's calendar. She will click "Open a Shared Calendar" in Outlook and send the request.The Development Director will approve it...but nothing will happen with the CEO's calendar.

Typically, after approval, we can just click on "Open a Shared Calendar" and type in the name again. And the calendar will be added, no problem. However, as I said, nothing is happening.

They are both out of the office now...next week, I'll be able to do some more extensive research but I was hoping someone may have experienced a similar problem. It is possible that our DD used her iPhone to approve the message. Could that affect anything?

They both use Office 2007 and we run Exchange 2010.

Thank you.

In Exchange 2010 (I believe), Microsoft has changed the default shared calendar setting. Instead of the calendar appearing immediately, the user (whose calendar is being shared) has to designate the other user as a "Reviewer". Then the calendar will appear.

In the user's (whose calendar is being shared) Outlook, click Calendar and right-click on their calendar (with the check box next to it). Choose Properties, click on the Permissions tab. Select the correct user and designate them as "Reviewer". This gives proper access.

I have had reports of the same, but when I logged into the PCs myself and sent, recieved and opened the calendar they always work.

Seems like a good plan. I won't have an opportunity to check this out until late next week though.
