    Live@Edu - Calendar Sharing through OWA

    Hi,

    We are sharing calendars using our Live@Edu accounts but the highest share privilege we can give is 'Reviewer' and not 'Contributor'. Is there a way of sharing calendars though OWA that allows the person who it is shared with to create events?

    Thanks
    Ellis

    Bit long winded but:
    I think you need to enable, via powershell, the ability to change the sharing permissions on calenders through OWA.

    If you go to This Site it shows you most of the commands available. I've always done the sharing through either Outlook or Mail for Mac and it works well so there is no reason why it can't be done.

    I've noticed this today too. The permissions have changed! What's the command to allow edit rights to a calendar?

    Users who I've previously given Editor rights are now greyed out. How can I resolve this?

    Follow these instructions

    User A (Mike) must share his calendar with User B (Tom). Tom needs to accept the calendar share and by default he'll have Viewer rights to Mike's calendar.

    Open up PowerShell and enter:

    Code:
    $LiveCred = Get-Credential
    
    $Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/ -Credential $LiveCred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
    
    Import-PSSession $Session
    To view the existing permissions on Mike's calendar, enter:

    Code:
    Get-MailboxFolderPermission -identity "Mike:\Calendar"
    You'll see something like this:

    Code:
    RunspaceId   : 12345678900987654321
    FolderName   : Calendar
    User         : Tom
    AccessRights : {Reviewer}
    Identity     : Tom
    IsValid      : True
    You now need to remove the existing Reviewer permissions as follows:

    Code:
    Remove-MailboxFolderPermission -identity "Mike:\Calendar" -user "Tom"
    You can now add Editor rights as follows:

    Code:
    Add-MailboxFolderPermission -identity "Mike:\Calendar" -user "Tom" -AccessRights Editor
    Now if you re-run this command:

    Code:
    Get-MailboxFolderPermission -identity "Mike:\Calendar"
    The response should be something like:

    Code:
    RunspaceId   : 12345678900987654321
    FolderName   : Calendar
    User         : Tom
    AccessRights : {Editor}
    Identity     : Tom
    IsValid      : True
    Job done, Tom can now edit Mike's calendar.
