    How to drop items into all users calendars

    We use Exchange any ideas how we can achieve this, ideally we want to plonk Bank Holidays and other dates such as when students break up half term holidays etc into all staff students calendars. Any ideas how we can acheieve this? Google seems to suggest it can't be done with outlook and exchange.

    All the public holidays should be easy - there's a tickbox option in File -> Options -> Calendar to "Add holidays to the Calendar", so you should have a GP switch somewhere to do it. As far as the other goes, there should be a way to do it using Calendar Groups - there are quite a few results from a search for same, but it'll depend on the flavour of Outlook and exchange you're using.

    Could you not just do a central calendar which you put entries on and then users can view if they wish? That what we used to do and then everyone had the option to the add the calendar to the their outlook.

    It makes more sense to have a central calendar maintained by one of the admin staff that you share with all staff. We have two like this: The School Calendar is public and is the one the holidays on it and is used on the school website. The School Diary has replaced the desktop diary that used to be used to record the things all the staff need to know, but not the outside world.

    Now, unfortunately we use Google apps. But you can share calendars in Exchange too.
