One of my users has multiple shared calenders open and is having difficulty remembering which colour is respective to which persons calender which had lead to a few mistakes when inputing appointments.

She is using the monthly grid format but there are no heading above each grid to indicate whose mailbox the calender belongs to. Is there any way to put a heading in place so she can see clearly see which calender belongs to which mailbox.

In the left hand pane, can't she see the list of   shared calendars? She should be able to uncheck the ones she doesn't want to work in.

If you right click on the calendar in this calendar view option then you can change the name of it. See picture attached. The main calendar you cannot change the name (in my picture see where it says Lionel) but on all the ones below it in the list you can. See the arrows in the picture attached.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I have right clicked the shared folder and accessed properties but I cannot modify the name under the general tab. Please advise.

I can't give you a definitive answer as to why but see the list of calendars in the attached picture. The first 2 in the list I CANNOT rename--all the others I can. I know for sure if you click on File and NEW (in calendar view) you can add a new calendar and give it any name so that may be the key for you, to add a new calendar, give it a name and then share it. I also suggest un-sharing it and seeing if the rename option is available or not. Can you send me a print screen of your list of calendars?

I will test creating a new calender and then copying the contents of the default calender on to it and then sharing and will let you know the outcome. The option to rename the calender is greyed out unfortunately.

gpersand,
can you please post a screenshot? As lionelmm requested?  Your users permissions to edit the calendars may not be set correctly.

I created a new calender with the required name and copied the old calender contents to it.
