Exchange 2010 public folder access

We have a SBS2011 server with Exchange 2010 installed.  Several public folders are setup, but some users are unable to add appointments to the public calendar.  When they double click on an empty field they receive a message stating that they don't have permissions to edit the calendar.  I have gone through the EMC using the Public Folder Management Console and have assigned the user editor rights and still receive the same results.  Is there some other method that I should be using to allow the employee to add appointments to the calendar?

From the looks of the calendars you posted these are resource calendars to book conference rooms, right?

If so, then you should not be able to directly create an entry on them -- although older versions of Outlook may allow this.  Because the correct way to create an entry on a resource calendar is to add that resource to the appointment in your own calendar.  The entry will then be automatically created.

Ok.  Currently the receptionist just adds an appointment for these meeting rooms.  This is a new user, as the former receptionist left.  As far as I can tell she has appropriate permissions.  Is there any detriment to our current method?

Yes, there is a detriment to your current method because of what you are experiencing as stated in your initial question.

If the receptionist is booking the meeting room the he/she would add the appointment on their OWN calendar and then add the resource which would put it on the shared resource calendar.

But it really should go on the meeting organizer's appointment -- so the way most people do this is to grant the receptionist delegate access to those user's calendars and then he/she can add the resource to the appointments they make.

Putting an appointment directly on the resource calendar itself is not how it's done.
