Outlook 2007 calendar desktop shortcut.


We are trying to create a shortcut to a public outlook calendar to be placed on users desktops same sort of thing as the outlook shortcut bar from previous versions of office.

Have tried various suggestions on the web however they either creat a file that outlook then car re open or just opens up the main outlook email interface.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If your using public folder as a shared calendar this will work.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\OUTLOOK.EXE" Outlook:\\Public Folders\All Public Folders\Data Center\Data Center Calendar
This will do it for a shared mailbox calendar.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\OUTLOOK.EXE" Outlook:\\Mailbox - Dayton Test Mailbox\calendar

I typically do this by having the Outlook window and an Explorer window (C:, Program Files, your choice). Go to the Folder List in Outlook, expand Public Folders (or wherever the shared Calendar is), find the Calendar in question, click and drag the Calendar to the Explorer window. An XNK file is created that should allow all with appropriate permissions to open the shared Calendar accordingly.
