to give user permissions on PF, you can either use ExchangeShell or GUI.

Via shell:
Add-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity "\Marketing\West Coast" -AccessRights PublishingEditor -User <username>
Change PF identity, AccessRights and username, as per permissions that user needs to have.

Via GUI, follow guide on this link:
