Hello, I need help.
I get work related emails on my iphone. Exchange is configured on my work iphone.
If my boss is sharing a calendar is there a way that I can view that calendar on my iphone?
I can view the calendar on my laptop in outlook  obviously, but would like to also view it on my iphone.

Your exchange administrator needs to reconfigure exchange possibly to allow for iCal publishing if not done so already. Here's an article on how to for Exchange 2010. to give you an idea.

Once configured your boss needs to publish his calendar to you, which provides you with a URL that you can click on from the iPhone.
When clicking that link you can subscribe to his or her calendar, and view it on your iPhone.

EDIT: Had a quick google for an example, and the same site which explains how to configure the back end, also shows the example for the iPhone calendar subscription.

If you want the calendar to be viewable in your Calendar App on the iPhone, you will HAVE to add his account to your phone and then disable the Mail, Contacts, Notes etc.

Trouble is - if he only gave you access to his calendar, you have the potential to read ALL his emails this way, so it's far from ideal.

That is another way, but with the iCal publishing you do not need the full access anymore.
So you got two options to consider :)

Hi,

Outlook was released yesterday by MS.

Please visit this iTunes Store link and give it a try.

i downloaded the new outlook app today.
works pretty good. But does anyone know how to access/view  calendars that are shared by others? I can view my own calendar but I can't see/view the calendars that have been shared by others.
also, how do i view my contact list on the app? all that shows me is my current recent list.

You still need to have iCal published as per my original post. If you have your IT look at that, you will be able to view shared calendars by subscribing to them.
