MS Outlook restrict access to your own calendar

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

We have a customer who has PDA's out on the road with workmen & the girls in the office update their calendars for jobs etc. We have an issue where some of the guys move or delete appointments & would like to restrict their access to read only.
Currently the customer ha
MS Exchange 2007 Std
Active Sync enabled & available for PDA type users.

For each engineer we have given them a mailbox within exchange & configured their PDA to access their emails & calendars. We then share these calendars for the operators so they can update the engineers calendar so they can see where they are supposed to be.
We need to find a way to stop any of the engineers from making changes on their calendars only. This way only the office workers can make changes. Is this possible?

Watch Question

IMO, using Windows PDA we dont have any options of accessing the "Shared calendar\mailbox"

Normally when the windows-PDA user access their mailbox, the content will have a full access for me.

- If possible thing about any website with the calendar stuff....grant just read-only permission

In this case, the PDA device needs to use the browser to access the site to get the data


Hi E Aravind,

Thanks for your input. Not really the answer I was hoping for but I fear you are correct..
