I recommend you create a CSV file with all of the names of the users the one user needs access to.  Similar to this...

Alias,NAME_OF_USER_THAT_NEEDS_ACCESS
JDoe,Me
BDoe,Me
JSmith,Me
BSmith,Me

Open in new window


This command should add the permissions you need for the one user to access all of the calendars specified in the CSV file...

Import-Csv "C:\Users.csv" | ForEach-Object { Add-MailboxFolderPermission –Identity ($_.Alias + ’:\calendar’) –User $_.NAME_OF_USER_THAT_NEEDS_ACCESS –AccessRights PublishingEditor }

Open in new window


However, if the one user already has permissions set and they need to be modified, you will use this command...

Import-Csv "C:\Users.csv" | ForEach-Object { Set-MailboxFolderPermission –Identity ($_.Alias + ’:\calendar’) –User $_.NAME_OF_USER_THAT_NEEDS_ACCESS –AccessRights PublishingEditor }

Open in new window


Let us know.

The CSV will look like the following.  Save as "Users.csv" on C: ...

Alias
Amalia Khemet
Amy Farrell
Andrew White
Anna Holland
Caroline Barnet
Charlotte Hynes
Chris Bruce
Guy Sumaili
Jackie O’Rourke
Jack Lynch
Jake Fowler
Joanna Drake
Jordan Blake
Kiran Kaur
Kirsty Hull
Luke Guest
Matthew Redmond
Matthew Wallis
Meg Harris
Natasha Nabbijan
Nimerjeet Kaur
Raphael Sanglay
Rebecca Collins
Rebecca Rae
Shannon Barnes
Sophie Burgess
Stephanie Matthews
Tayo Omole
Victoria Davies

Open in new window


Then run this command in the Exchange Management Shell...

Import-Csv "C:\Users.csv" | ForEach-Object { Add-MailboxFolderPermission –Identity ($_.Alias + ’:\calendar’) –User "ENTER THE NAME OF USER THAT NEEDS ACCESS HERE" –AccessRights PublishingEditor }

Open in new window


After running the command, should you receive an error like this...

An existing permission entry was found for user: ...


You will need to run this command...

Import-Csv "C:\Users.csv" | ForEach-Object { Set-MailboxFolderPermission –Identity ($_.Alias + ’:\calendar’) –User "ENTER THE NAME OF USER THAT NEEDS ACCESS HERE" –AccessRights PublishingEditor }

Open in new window


If you want to see if the permissions were set properly, run this command...

Import-Csv "C:\Users.csv" | ForEach-Object { Get-MailboxFolderPermission ($_.Alias + ':\calendar') }

Open in new window


Hope that helps.

Should I start learning PowerShell?

Yes. If that is what you want.


Do you have any suggestions?

Hi Todd,

Thank you for this information it is so helpful & supportive. Please would you mind having a look at the screenshots I've added when I run the first script via Exchange Management Shell I get an error message.

Import-Csv "C:\Users.csv" | ForEach-Object { Add-MailboxFolderPermission –Identity ($_.Alias + ’:\calendar’) –User " Louise Lanahan  " –AccessRights PublishingEditor }

Can you help?

The first screenshot suggests the CSV is not on the C drive or the name of the CSV is not "Users.csv".

In the second screenshot, the command is out of context.  You need to run the entire command as was provided ... including the Import-Csv.  It's a one line command.

Also, remove the spaces between the quotes (" Louise Lanahan  "), like this...

Import-Csv "C:\Users.csv" | ForEach-Object { Add-MailboxFolderPermission –Identity ($_.Alias + ’:\calendar’) –User "Louise Lanahan" –AccessRights PublishingEditor }

Open in new window


Or you will get an error like this...


The user " Louise Lanahan  " is either not valid SMTP address, or there is no matching information.
