Best way to roll out a "school calender" in outlook.
We've decided we want a "School Calender" in outlook. As it stands one of our Admin girls has created a calender in her outlook and wants to share this with all staff. This doesn't seem like the best way to me.
My opinion was it would be better to create a generic mail account called "calender" or something then just let whoever needs to edit it have the correct permissions. That way there is no fiddling about moving calenders when people leave.
What do you think?
Also is there a way to automatically have users have access to a "school calender" I couldn't see any options on ExchangeManagementConsole to do this?
Just looking for opions, experiences really on best way to procede.

If you setup a shared mailbox and a seurity group that has read pemissions and one that has read\write permissions and users to the correct groups and away you go.

What about public folders and put the calendar in there?

Aye we have started using public folders too. You can also assign permissions of who is allowed to view/edit the calendars in there as well.

Microsoft are slowly killing public folders of course, they want you to use sharepoint

Or resource mailbox's, they are 2 different approaches.

On a separate note, the Calendar system within Zimbra is really good, simple and effective. You can create, share and allocate permissions in minutes

Have you got an Intranet? I've got setup a private calendar on our intranet and a public one of the school website: _
Get it from Webmasters tools and help , they charge somehting like $90 for the the calendars, they send you the installation instructions and configuration files, and you need to have MySQL running on your webserver.
I had another calendar to show the opening times, they are deadly easy to update
