My firm would like to allow full access to all staff calendars. Each person should be allowed to view others calendar with full detail. Is there a way through power shell we can allow this global access?

Our environment: Exchange 2010 SP3, WIndows 7 Ent, Outlook 2010 v14.0.7140.5002

Use can definitely do this via powershell. Use the below script...

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Powershell.E2010
$UserList = get-mailbox -resultsize "unlimited"
foreach ($User in $Userlist) {
Set-MailboxCalendarFolder -Identity $User:\Calendar _DetailLevel FullDetails

Open in new window

Note: if you are going to run this from the EMS you do not need the first line in the script "Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Powershell.E2010"

Thanks Will, before I try this is there a script to show the current permissions so I can compare after running the script provided? I will be using EMS.

You can change the set-mailboxcalendarfolder to get-mailboxcalendarfolder.

Get the info

$UserList = get-mailbox -resultsize "unlimited"
foreach ($User in $Userlist) {
Get-MailboxCalendarFolder -Identity $User:\Calendar -DetailLevel FullDetails

Open in new window

Change info
$UserList = get-mailbox -resultsize "unlimited"
foreach ($User in $Userlist) {
Get-MailboxCalendarFolder -Identity $User:\Calendar -DetailLevel FullDetails

Open in new window

Note: i have a typo in my first code i have corrected this in the second one. The typo was "_fulldetails" it should be "-fulldetails"
