Hello- hopefully an easy question

Here's the environment:
Exchange 2010
Outlook 2013
using public folders

I would like to add a public calendar in the public Folder, add permissions and share the calendar with co-workers . I've completed all steps, but for some reason the "shared" calendar is "greyed out" so I'm unable to share the calendar..  I'm using outlook in "online" mode, not cached. Any ideas?

You wouldn't need to share a calendar in a Public Folder, once the user has permissions to the item in Exchange they will be able to open the public folder from their Outlook accounts.  Only personal calendars/contact lists would need to be 'shared' as anything public is shared by default assuming permissions are set.

Correct ...but I don't want them to have to navigate to this folder. Just want it to show under under their calenders

You would just need to add it as a Favorite and it will show in the list of Calendars in Outlook.

They just need to navigate to the calendar for the first time and add it to their favourites, once added in their favourites they will be able to access it through their calendar view
