We are migrating to Office 365 and need to setup all users to have reviewer access to all other user's calendars. I can have users create a sharing request to the group "all" but I have specific people within the "all" group that need editor access to specific calendars. If I add those users individually and give them editor access will that override their reviewer access? which takes precedence?

Give Reviewer to the 'Default' user, then give specific people Editor. If you are going to do this for all users, you can automate the process using PowerShell. Read for example here:

I'll still need to add the all group with reviewer access, changing the default user doesn't give anyone access. So if someone is a member of all and that group has reviewer access and the user is given editor access does the individual access override the group access?

The 'Default' entry applies to everyone in your company. Applying reviewer permissions to the Detault entry will make sure that everyone see everyone's calendar, just like it's explained in the article. Once you have done this part, you can adjust the Editor permissions to whoever necessary. They will take precedence over the Default entry.

Ok, I thought the default user simply meant when you add a user it assumes the permissions of the default user not that it applies to all users. You have answered my question, thanks!
