Create a shared calendar

Posted on 2013-11-25

Hello all,

I'm looking to create a calendar for the purpose of users in a group accessing it and entering their holiday information, so the rest of that group can see who is on holiday/vacation.

How would I best go about doing this in Exchange 2007, using the EMC and/or EMS

Thanks in advance.

Well you can either use a Public Folder which is the more traditional approach, although Microsoft is no longer developing Public Folders.

You could also do a Shared Mailbox, which is a mailbox, and only use the calendar portion.

Lastly, if you have SharePoint you could also use a SharePoint Calendar.

Don't think I'd go for the Public folder route. Should I go through the shared mailbox option how do I specify the calendar portion only?

Is there anyway to do this via EMS (Exchange Management Shell)?

Hi damejen,

Here's how for Exchange 2007:

You can add a Team calendar and have all related appointments in that including sick/leave appointments specific for your team.

Let me know if you have any questions!
