Hey Experts,
Got a exchange 2013 update 1 server running.
Had a question that i couldn't seem to find a answer to.  I have a user that has 2 calendars.  In there OWA they are able to see both calendars.  They have set proper permissions on the calendars.  When user(2) goes to there OWA and chooses Open Calendar.  And goes From Directory and chooses user(1) they can only see the primary calendar.  How in OWA do you open the other shared calendar??

yup.
the challenge is that OWA there is no simple way to do so.

If you insist, you will need to know  the URL

user(1) goes to user(1) OWA, choose the calendar want to share to user(2)
right click and Open in new Windows

a new windows open, copy the URL and send to user(2)

user(2) click on the URL, it opens!


(okay, if permission is correctly set!)

as i said.. there is no simple way :)

anyway, why use a second calendar?

the best way is to create a alternative user (3) that both users (1,2) have access to it!
another way of fixing it :P

Here is what we want.  And making a secondary user i guess would be a solution.

What we were going to do was make a user called "Vacation Calendar" Inside that user we were going to have a calendar for "Location 1"  "Location 2" "Location 3" and so on for all there store locations.  Then from OWA everyone could see each store location vacation calendars and who is off.  But i guess the same thing can be accomplished with making separate users for each store location.

Our original attempt was going to be using public folders calendar which initially worked very slick from Outlook 2010/2013 until we got to OWA again and realized you cannot see public folder calendars "yet according to MS support" from OWA.
