Hi Experts,

I'm curious, is it possible/satisfactory to embed or replicate a view of a shared outlook calendar in an asp.net c# web page ?

I have read a little about publishing an outlook calendar to IIS via WebDav - be interested to know the implications & limitations of this. We are running IIS7 - WebDav is not currently installed but we do have live sites on that server so I am curious to know if we can safely add WebDav at this stage without impacting our existing sites and how satisfactory it is (Outlook 2010)?

I also stumbled over Exchange Web Services and wondered about that as a solution...i.e. pull the calendar from Exchange using some c# and then feed the info to a webpage in the usual way.

The calendar will be managed and appointments sent via outlook still, all I want in the webpage is a dynamic view of the calendar (i.e. fully upto date and with the ability to - view a day, week or month etc in much the same way as you view a calendar in outlook itself).

It might not be my solution - but i'm curious to know what level of integration is possible...

Many thanks in advance

I know, you can do it in sharepoint using webpart.

Hi amitkulshrestha,

Thank you thats worth knowing, we don't currently use sharepoint but it is something that we may well move to going forwards so thats interesting. Do you know if it's possible without using sharepoint?

Nothing is impossible according to me. You might need to create similar like Sharepoint webpart, note, if you have form based authentication for OWA, then it will prompt the user for password, in order to workaround this issue, you need to create a new CAS server and then add one more extra IP, create new site, set OWA authentication to:

-BasicAuthentication $true -Windows Integrated $true

I know, it is not that easy for you to understand and setup, it is a complex task, i did for my sharepoint team recently....if you have MS support get in touch with them for more help...or any expert developer who knows exchange too...
