Office 365 admin portal flaky?

New to O365. Yesterday I altered permissions for a Public Folder shared folder that has calendars in it. I only altered one users permissions in one calendar. Today, I notice the changes I made were ignored / didn't stick. I also yesterday trued to alter a mail flow rule and it just would not stick with what I had altered. Today, I had to delete the rule and recreate it, and that worked. Is that portal flaky sometimes?

Honestly i generally don't like web interface portals for that very reason. For the most part be sure to click save and make sure that before you leave the specific site, the save was completed and not still in the process of saving or loading. Flacky yes sort of :) but thats all we have to work with at this time haha.

Flaky ... sure, sometimes what it displays can be a bit flaky, but I've never seen it do something like that ... apparently accept a change without committing it to the system. You're sure you got all the way through the process to save it?

Yes, for sure. I didnt notice the calendar perms thing until 24 hours later, but with the rule, like I said, I kept trying to save it and then viewed it and it wouldnt stick.

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Are you the the mailbox owner for the calendar your are setting permissions on or the exchange admin.

Sorry we are talking about public folders permissions, I got this thread confused with a user about calendar permissions.

Does the calendar show to have an owner. I would suggest having the owner change the permissions or make yourself an owner of the folder if you are not already and try again.

I already am the owner, for sure.

can you try to modify that permission in OWA if you haven't already tried that as opposed to outlook.

Make sure you check the Service Health portal frequently from the O365 Admin Center (https://portal.office.com/AdminPortal/Home#/servicehealth) before attempting to troubleshoot on your own.  It may save you some time and headaches.  It won't matter if make changes in the "web interface portal" (EAC) or via PowerShell, if there is an advisory related to the issue you are experiencing.

Also, if you are seeing something you don't expect, it's good practice to open a ticket so at least support can track the issue because it could be wide-spread but no yet posted in the Service Health portal.
