Hello

We know how to set permissions to access other users calendar in exchange in Outlook/Delegation.

However, our CEO is too busy and travelling and don't know how to do or don't want to do it.
 
So, is there a way Exchange administrator can set permission in Exchange 2010 to allow user the PA to access user CEO's Calendar with Full Access ? The PA should NOT have any access to the CEO's mailbox.

Also how can you provide different levels of access to a users Calendar in Exchange 2010 - "Owner", "Publisher Editor", "Editor", Publishing Author", "Author", "Reviewer" "contributor"

Login to Exchange and run Exchange Mgmt Shell:

Username = email address of user.

To get the permissions of a mailbox:
Get-MailboxPermission -identity "username"

To get the permissions of a subfolder in a mailbox:
Get-MailboxFolderPermission -identity "username:\Calendar"

To change permissions on a subfolder in a mailbox:

Add-MailboxFolderPermission -identity "username:\Calendar" -user "username" -AccessRights -PublishingEditor

Remove-MailboxFolderPermission -identity "username:\Calendar" -user "username"

You can log into the User's mailbox and share the calendar for that User. That way the User does not have to do the work him/herself but it gets done.

For example for joe.bloggs@xyz.co.uk to access joe.bloggs2@xyz.co.uk calendar with full calendar access the command would be as follows:  

Add-MailboxFolderPermission -identity "joe.bloggs:\Calendar" -user "joe.bloggs2" -AccessRights -PublishingEditor

Could you advise if this is the correct Shell Command ? Also how do you remove Calendar access ?

Thanks

The command that you have posted is correct.
To remove it, you need to use the same command, but remove-mailboxfolderpermission

To change it for an existing user, use set-mailboxfolderpermission.

For my Clarity please confirm the following are correct, note I have removed all the quotes " from the command.
To assign Full Access permissions to another user calendar in exchange 2010:
Add-MailboxFolderPermission -identity joe.bloggs:\Calendar -user "joe.bloggs2 -AccessRights -PublishingEditor
To remove Calendar Access:

Add-MailboxFolderPermission -identity joe.bloggs:\Calendar -user "joe.bloggs2 -remove-mailboxfolderpermission

Yes, that would be correct, you would need their credentials.

Yes it is correct except the fact that you do need the quotes around "joe.bloggs:\Calendar" and "joe.bloggs2"

I tried the command Add-MailboxFolderPermission -identity "xxxx:\Calendar" -user "xxxx" -AccessRights -PublishingEditor

I receive Red text as per attachment and unable to continue to add the Calendar access.

What has gone wrong here ?
