We want to have a shared calendar that all management people can see and update. Ideally we want to select specific personal calendar items and replicate to the shared calendar as needed. We tried the following.
1. created a new room calendar in exchange 2007. this worked in principle but only the time slot was reserved and not calendar details or subject shows.
2. we created a public folder calendar. Once created, I am not able to select permissions and allow myself or any other users to update. We can see the calendar but not add or edit.
Best suggestions to get this done - please.
Thank you
Wayne

How are you going about creating the new public calendar (in your step two)?

If you use outlook, you should be given owner permissions by default. Then when you right-click the calendar you just created and select properties, there should be a permissions tab available.
