We have just deployed exchange 2013 within our school and i would like to create a school calendar for staff and share it with everyone automatically. Is there a way that i could setup a calendar to automatically share with anyone placed in a certain Mailbox Database?
How would i go about created a school calendar and sharing it anyway.
Thanks All !
Thanks For that ! I have created a shared mailbox but do you know of anyway where i can set the calender to be shared with everyone in an OU or a Mailbox database so i dont have to share it with new users all the time.
Share it with a group.
E.g. 'all staff'
New members of the group automatically get access.
Base your groups around the roles that exist within your school. Give the role groups the necessary access to the resources. As users come and go all you have to do is assign them membership of appropriate groups and they get access to all the resources appropriate to the role.
Thanks for the Reply ! I alright have a group setup with everyone in it, My question is how do i share it with them without them having to accept the sharing of the calendar? I want the calendar to "just Appear" to them.
Thanks for your help so far much appreciated
If your looking to share a single calendar with everyone you can:
Create shared mailbox and add yourself as "Full Access"
Load your account into Outlook
In calendars, create a calendar in the shared mailbox account
Right click the cal, properties, Permissions
Then click default and change that to Reviewer. Which will allow anyone in your organisation to have read only permissions
Then the end user in outlook owa or desktop would in calendar right click, add calendar and type the email of the shared mailbox.
This way you don't have to send out individual cal invites. I may be wrong but I don't think you can add it for them.
