Posted on 2015-01-28

I have the following code to give individual permissions:

Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity user1@domain.com:\calendar -user user2@domain.com -AccessRights Editor

Is there a way how we can add all mailboxes open to everyone?

Also a method to add this as default policy?

Thanks,

Please confirm would you like to share all user calender info or full mailbox access to everyone?

What exactly are you trying to do, make sure everyone can see everyone's details, or make sure that everyone can EDIT everyone's calendar items? I doubt you will really need the later, as it is a recipe for disaster. Here's an example on how to make sure everyone can see the details for events in other people calendars:

$calendars = Get-Mailbox -RecipientTypeDetails UserMailbox | Get-MailboxFolderStatistics | ? {$_.FolderType -eq "Calendar"} | select @{n="Identity"; e={$_.Identity.Replace("\",":\")}}

$calendars | % {Set-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity $_.Identity -User Default -AccessRights LimitedDetails}

Open in new window


If needed, adjust the permissions.

So the above script should work for you.

Will I need to always run this command for new users to have the changes applied?

Also I take it LimitedDetails is only to view, if we wanted to have reviewer rights, would you just replace LimitedDetails to Reviewer?

Thanks,

Yes, you will need to adjust this for new users. The default permissions are "AvailabilityOnly", this will simply show that the user has a meeting but not any additional details. If you want, you can grant Reviewer/Editor rights as needed, but probably not a good idea to grant them on the "Default" user. Up to you of course.

OK - So that I understand, if I was to use Editor instead of LimitedDetails. Any new users that are created, will they also have this policy? or will I need this run each time a new user is added?

You will have to run it against new users.
