I would like to set up a shared vacation calendar for my colleagues at work. (When I say "I" what I mean is "the IT group at my company". I'm actually the requester and end user). The calendar must:
a) allow multiple users access
b) automatically accept and delete "meetings" (i.e. vacations)
c) allow "overbooking" (i.e. more than one person can take the same day off)
You can see where I am going with these requirements. The goal is to have a user schedule a vacation on their own Outlook calendar, invite the vacation calendar, and then have everyone in the group simply view the vacation calendar to see when people are planning to be out of the office. I want to get away from requiring each user to maintain a schedule in two places.
So far we have not been able to configure Exchange Server 2013 for the above requirements. I can have a "resource" (like a conference room) calendar that meets requirements (a) and (b), but not (c). I can have a regular "personal" (like fictitious user "VacationCal") calendar that meets requirements (a) and (c), not (b).
Is it possible to create a calendar with the features I've described?
(no, I don't have SharePoint... :-) )
A Shared Mailbox cannot be configured for auto-accept, but I was under the supposition that you were providing permissions to the users for accessing the mailbox so they could add items to the calendar.
