Shared Public Calendars

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

To create a new public folder calendar (and enable editing for other users) follow these steps using your Outlook client:


Navigate to your public folders list


Right-Click the folder you want to store your calendar in and select New Folder


Choose a name for the calendar, then change the Folder Contains drop down menu to Calendar Items


Click OK


Right-Click the new calendar and select Properties


Click the Permissions tab


Click Add


Select the user(s) you wish to add (Hold down ctrl and click each user you want, then click add)


Modify each users' permissions to the level desired

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.
