I need to be able to hide the outlook calendar appointment detail, but still allow users to see the subject/location information

hi, I have been asked if it is possible to allow users to see all the other user calendars, but have it, so the users can only see the subject and location of the other user not the detail section. just enabling free/busy isn't enough.
Is this possible.

You can use "Limited Details" Access Rights to view Availability / Subject and location. See screenshot below...

And then use the following command to set this up for all mailboxes on your domain....
$AllMB = Get-Mailbox -ResultSize "unlimited"
ForEach ($MB in $AllMB) { 
Set-MailboxFolderPermissions -Identity $MB:\calendar -AccessRights "LimitedDetails"
}

Open in new window


This will set this for all mailbox calendars in your environment.

Hi Will
I should have stayed in bed this moring. Finally got round to testing it and stupidly rushed in to it and ran this first, Would that causes issues before I run what should have been the first section in the pic ?

$AllMB = Get-Mailbox -ResultSize "unlimited"
ForEach ($MB in $AllMB) {
Set-MailboxFolderPermissions -Identity $MB:\calendar -AccessRights "LimitedDetails"
}

The script that i posted will set this on all of the mailboxes in your Exchange environment.

If you do not want this run the command again but change the Access Rights to something else.
