Hi I have seen that article already.

I know there is a command for adding permisions to a mailbox so that another user can view the calendar on that mailbox.  I just don't know how to format it.

Sorry meant to add the following. if you get the mailboxes you want updated into a CSV file, then I would do it something like the following:
import-csv "c:\users.csv"| ForEach-Object {Add-MailboxFolderPermission $_":\Calendar" -User user.name@domain.com -AccessRights Reviewer}

Thank you. That looks better.

Just to clarify:

 -User user.name@domain.com -AccessRights Reviewer}

Is the username of the person who want to be able to review the caleandars.

That's correct and the csv file contains the mailboxes you want that user to be added to.

Hi
I have listed my users users in the csv file.

Kate Adams
Kay Bott
Sam Smith
etc

howver when I run import-csv "c:\users.csv"| ForEach-Object {Add-MailboxFolderPermission $_":\Calendar" -User stephen.cox@nsf-cmi.com -AccessRights Reviewer}

I get the following error for each user.  What have I done wrong?


The specified mailbox "@{Julian.Bott@nsf-cmicertification.com=Kate.Adams@nsf-cmicertification.com}" doesn't exist.

The CSV should be comma seperated but it looks like you have the equals sign as a seperator so its picking an invalid string. You may want to open the file you created in Excel and make sure each user is on a separate row and then save as a csv. FYI I created the csv by runnning get-mailbox|export-csv "c:\users.csv".
