Add Meeting to Shared Calendar When I Add It To My Private Calendar

Q: Add Meeting to Shared Calendar When I Add It To My Private Calendar

Outlook 2007 running under Exchange server. We have a shared calendar used by all employees to show when they will be out of the office... vacations, part time, etc.

We also have Resource Mailboxes in Exchange so that when you click on the "Rooms" button when setting up an appointment, you can see the room schedule, then add your appointment to the room by inviting the room as an attendee.

The boss wants to do something similar with the shared calendar. When she puts an appointment on her private calendar that will take her out of the office, she wants to be able to press the equivalent of the "Rooms" button and have that appointment be automatically copied to the shared calendar so that everyone can see that she will be out of the office.

I've been trying to do a web search but unfortunately the search terms I have been using keeps telling me how to set up calendars, not how to pull off this trick.

Information greatly appreciated. TIA.

Re: Outlook 2003
Is there is a way to designate a Shared Outlook Calendar (that is used as our company-wide calendar) as an individual's default calendar. We are set up with a Microsoft XP Exchange Server.
The goal is to have the company-wide calendar download to a Blackberry Curve as the user's default calendar. Right now he sees his own calendar which he does not need. We have the Blackberry Desktop Manager installed on his network computer.
Thank you.

As an addendum, it would be preferable that the Outlook/Blackberry user not be able to modify the office-wide Shared Calendar (should there be a way for him to see it) so that all changes still go through our calendar maven. Thank you.

I have many meetings with the same client, each has a meeting in Outlook. I want to maintain all notes from these meetings in Onenote.

In OneNote I have a notebook "clients", and want a section per client. What I'd like is to open the meeting in Outlook, click on the "oneNote" button, and be brought right to the client's section in Onenote and a new page open for that meeting's notes.

I'd also like to get to the OneNote section from the outlook contact area when selecting a contact form that client and using the "OneNote" button.

Is this level of integration possible?

Thanks for any help!

Hi there,
Seems my Outlook 2007 no longer automatically places a meeting request as Tentative on my calendar until I actually go into email inbox and open it. I prefer that if I'm away from email, new Invitations automatically display on my calendar as Tentative. Was like this before as I recall.

An staff member has set up a recurring meeting invite for her team. It has no attachments, no hyperlinks, and is just plain text in the body, there are about 20 invitees. It has been recurring for the last 6 months without any issues. However, in each of the attendees calendars it now shows the size of that single appointment as 11MB, but for the person who sent the invite it shows as 416KB.

Why even for the administrator is the size so large, and for the attendees so HUGE?

Any help greatly appreciated.

I have a user who is trying to print a meeting request from her calendar in Outlook 2007. When she opens the meeting and tries to print, she gets this error:

"There is a problem with the selected printer. You might need to reinstall the printer. Try again, or use a different printer."

This message comes up no matter which printer she chooses (local or network). Oddly enough, when she opens the item within the meeting request, she is able to print that. She is also able to print other items (emails, Word docs, etc.) to all printers with no problems.

Any ideas?? We are new to Office 2007 & this is the first time I've seen this. I was unable to duplicate the problem on my machine.

Thank you.
 

A:Outlook 2007 - problem printing meeting from calendar

Just wanted to add: this just happened with a different user who was trying to print an email that contained an attached item. So it seems the commom denominator is the attached item within the email / appointment they are trying to print. Not sure why that is causing a problem, and why it's only happening with certain users. I still haven't been able to replicate the problem on my comuter.

Hi-
For some reason on one of our systems, running Outlook 2010, there is an issue with sending a New Meeting.

I select the Calendar. From the menu, "New Meeting". The New meeting screen opens. I enter in the subject, body, and have three contacts listed in "TO". That's it, and I click Send.

My recipients received this as a standard message, for some bizarre reason, all calendar data has been removed from the message, yet the item has been added to my calendar. Any thoughts?

This is probably a very dumb question, but i just want to make sure.
Are the things you write in the calendar app that comes with windows 8 private?
I use it for my everyday journal and i write things that i want to keep private.
But every time i save changes for a day, it says it's syncing.. Why? Syncing to what?
Maybe i'm just being paranoid. I would die if i found out what i'm writing isn't private though..

A:Is the calendar app private?

As long as nobody has your Live.com password(Microsoft account), it's secure. It syncs with https://bay04.calendar.live.com/calendar/calendar.aspx, which is the online version of calander so you can access it from any PC.
Thirdly Dumb is who doesn't ask when they're unsure, then makes a mistake.

User Info: Lotus Notes 6.5, WIn 7
Server Info: Lotus Notes 6.5
I'm not sure if I can make this clear enough to understand, so I will appoligize now.

We have a user who recently noticed that a recurring meeting request will show in his calendar only for those that have replied to the request. His orig calendar entry is not showing, but there are, lets say 5 people that have been invited, it will show 5 "accepted" meetings in his calendar.

The first time he noticed this was earlier this week when we were experiencing other server issues. When he closed lotus and reopened it was fine. Then yesterday it did it again showing only the accepted requests, and not the orig.

We are 3 companies within a short distance to each other, and hope to soon have all 3 running the email off 1 server, which is currently running Notes 7, rather than 6.5.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

What a great site!

I'm using Windows XP 2002 and Outlook 2003

I have already set up my shared calendar and everything seems to be working. I've given people author access with myself as the owner.

Is there a way to tell who has posted what though? I would rather not have to go around asking everybody each time something new appears on the calendar.

Thanks!
 

A:Shared Calendar

Once you share the calendar to other 'authors' its shared. A common way is to share the calendar for 'read access'. Others look at the calendar and find an approiate time, then send you meeting notices and you accept them. You can have designates for this. Then the meeting post into the calendar with an organizer (who sent the meeting notice) and you can add additional notes as needed.

This 'public calendar' you have created cannot be managed except by an agreed upon policy. i.e. If you post to my calendar please put your name in it.

Hello all,

This is my first post here but have checked for help numerous times. I have been stumped with something and I've not been able to find an answer so please help or offer suggestions if possible.

The company i work for uses an Exchange server and office 2003. There is no issues witht he way it works. However we have started rolling some users up to 2007 on some test virtual systems.

What is happening in that on the 2007 system, old shared calendars - which have since been removed on 2003 - are appearing in the list of calendars on 2007. Now we are talking the shared calendars of users who have left more than 2 years ago.

So what i am hoping to find is a way to prevent this from happening. I presume that Outlook 2003 is caching the shared calendar information to the profile somehow on the Exhange server. However 2003 does not show these old calendars.

Would anyone have an idea how to turn this feature off, or where it can be removed from the server side so that the new systems with 07 wouldn't pick this information up from the users profiles?

::EDIT::
I will add I believe the accounts came originally from Outlook 2000 then to 2003 and now to 2007. The one users we are testign this with currently is working on onlie mode rather than cached, and has not brough over anything such as a PST file.

Many thanks for your time,

Chris.

The Basics
Using Windows 10 Calendar (Outlook) as my primary calendar. The calendar contains two accounts, my Microsoft Live Account and my Gmail Account. In the left panel, I have the Gmail Calendar checked ? the Outlook calendar is unchecked. When I add an event, the default dropdown is my Gmail calendar which is what I want as my default.
My Problem
Events that I add to my calendar show up in both my Outlook calendar and my Gmail calendar as expected ? or maybe not quite as expected. I?ve just discovered that if I add an event several months in the future, it momentarily appears on my Outlook calendar and then is deleted (I see a brief deleted message appear). If I then go directly to my Gmail calendar, the event I just added shows up as expected. As of today (March 24), the cutoff date when the Windows/Outlook calendar automatic deletes begin to occur is September 7 (or 167 days from now). I haven?t yet experimented to see if the cutoff date moves forward every day.
Very strange. Anybody know what?s going on. If you have a similar calendar setup as mine, give it a try and see if your experience is the same. By the way, my Windows 10 system is fully updated.

I'm trying to help a friend who has just installed Office 2016 on her computer, which was recently upgraded from Win7 to Win10.

She's been using Outlook.com and has accumulated a fair amount of email, contacts and calendar appointments. I've managed to get her email to show up by adding it to Outlook 2016 as a POP3 account. I was able to import her contacts into Outlook 2016 from a file called OutlookContacts.csv. Now I'm trying to get her calendar with all its many calendars and appointments into Outlook 2016.

I'm not sure why but the appointments all show up just fine in Mail and Calendar for Windows 10, even though we did nothing to put them there (as far as we know). But she'd like them to appear when she clicks on the Calendar in Outlook 2016 and I can't find any information on how to do that. I've also looked for some kind of Export function in the Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 app but I came up empty.

How do I get her calendar into Outlook 2016?

I can't be the only one who finds Microsoft *awful* at documenting this kind of basic functionality. Millions of people must have tried to do the same thing before me but if there's any information out there on how to do this, it has eluded me so far....

A:Export calendar from Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 to Outlook 2016?

You can manually export calendars from Outlook.com using a round-a-bout method I posted at this link. However, I don't think that's going to help you because what you really want to do is set up Outlook 2016 so that her email, calendar and contacts sync with (and stay in sync with) her Outlook.com account.

Therefore, instead of setting email up as a POP account and then importing calendar, contacts, etc. separately, why not just setup Outlook 2016 to work with her Outlook.com account? I haven't done it with Outlook 2016, only older Outlook versions that used Hotmail Connector, however the following instructions for Outlook 2016 seem fairly straight forward.

https://support.office.com/en-us/art...7-76d60b148b23
If she has two-factor authentication switched on for her Outlook.com account, then you may need to generate an app password from her Outlook.com account, and use that as the password instead of the actual Microsoft Account password.

Greetings,

I currently have a 2003 SBS running Exchange SP1 and also running things such as domain, DNS, DHCP etc.

I have 2 domain on the network (other domain is run by an old NT box)

I have a mixed environment with end users working with Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010.
I created a new user named [email protected]

I logged into this address using office 2010 and created a calendar. Once I did that I shared it with around 20 other users on my network. Then I went into the sharing properties and gave everyone full access to the calendar.

Once this I heard back from all users on Outlook 2003 that they could not open the calendar. I directed them to go to File->Open other folder-> then the calender info.

It worked great.

Now for the 2010 users. I was able to add myself without the slightest issue. My coworker beside me also running 2010 could not open the calendar. The "Open" button is greyed out.The invite email looks fine otherwise.

I then checked with our other 3 Outlook 2010 users and they all had the same issue/ they receive the calendar fine, but cannot open it.

First thing I did was check that with issues were not in "offline" mode. they were all online.

Next I checked was their permissions again, and even removed all the 2010 users from the list, resent the calendar share request, and then gave the full permissions. still not able to open calendar in the email sent to them.

Situation:

I have a user (userA) that has their personal calendar and then 2 conference room calendars shared. I have shared these with several users with no issues at all except for one person (userB) out of the group will occasionally lose access to these calendars. Everyone else's calendars works correctly but when this user (userB) restarts OL occasionally the conference room calendars are no longer listed in their avail. calendars list. Once the calendars are gone I have to go back through the process of "opening a shared calendar".

A couple of other odd things I have noticed also is that if you look at the shared calendar in the top there is a name describing who's calendar you are looking at. Occasionally this will not be there and it is only with these shared calendars. Also to add to the mix, UserB has other users calendars avail. and has never had a problem with those individuals.

I have ensured that the settings are correct and identical as the other non-problematic users and that everyone is setup the same with all permissions in place. I have shared each individual calendar and i have removed and reinstalled.

A:Setup shared outbox and calendar

Shared Calendars are normal and each user imports calendars from correspondants.

Shared Email (in or out bound) is a BAD idea and not sure that's possible.
Obvious issue is no way to tell which user is working on what email and thus
multiple users start corresponding with the same email client -- massively confusing

Our salespeople and engineers share calendars for the purpose of setting up training and meetings. Lately there has been a rash of complaints that the view is not the same for everyone looking at a persons calendar. Also there has been a permission problem for those salesmen at a remote office. any insight?

Thanks, R
 

A:Shared Outlook Calendar views

When viewing someone else's calendar, you will see the default view of that user OR Outlook's default calendar view, depending on the version of OL. Sounds like some training is in order for your users on how to change the view to the one they want to see.

How are user's assigned permissions to view a calendar? If one group is having problems, it sounds like the NT/AD group to which they belong was not given permissions.

Hello everybody,
my online outlook calendar does not sync with my Windows Calendar app. I am talking about the online calendar which can be accessed after sign-in here: Prihláste sa do svojho konta Microsoft which for me used to always take all the information from my desktop calendar app, and vice-versa, when I entered an event online, it also appeared in my desktop app. This was useful for syncing with my phone and generally accessing my calendar when not having my laptop on me. This is now impossible for me to do.

Now they don't sync and it's quite annoying, I am getting desperate and thinking of using some other app (if you have tips, tell me. I went through this: Resolve sync issues in Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 10 - Office Support it did not solve the problem. I have updates on (I apply them manually). I have Windows 10 all up to date. and all settings allow calendar to be synced. I checked if I am signed in to the same account, I only have one account in the app and the same one online.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Also, I am adding a picture if it helps, on the left is my calendar, when I access it online, on the right is my Windows App. You can clearly see that there is a lot more on the right. I just want the events to appear in the online calendar as well, as they did before...

If I enter an appointment on the native calendar app it is not pushing these appointments to other devices or even the browser outlook.com calendar view. Should it be doing so? It works the other way around. So if I enter an appointment on my phone (iOS) using the outlook setup on the calendar it does push the appointment to the calendar app on Windows 10. Just not other way round!

A:Mail and calendar app not pushing calendar entries to other devices

Ok, correction - it does work. Just took a while to push them out. About 30 minutes to come through. Pretty slow but at least it did it. Maybe servers are slow although I'm sure it's pretty instant the other way round !

Hello,
Where can I find the exact path arguments of an Outlook Calendar (like: "Public Folders\shared calendars\Maintenance")?
The goal is under VBA to point to a specific shared calendar name in place of the usual "GetDefaultFolder" in a sentence like:
Set olFolder = Outlook.Application.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar)

Hope I'm making some sense...

Hi all,

I have run into a problem where one guy is sharing his outlook 2003 calendar with his secretary, suddenly he is not able to open or edit anything in the calendar, but the secretary is able to do everything! He is only able to see an overview of calendar (month, week, day) with the titles only but unable to open, edit, move or delete an item in specific. I checked the permissions and it has 2 options

Default: Owner
"secretary name" Edit

I even checked the secretary's calendar but couldn't figure out something she might have done to cause this to happen.

What could possibly cause that to happen?

Just wondering if any experienced the following and if they found a fix.

I have a client who's had inadvertently added a user to share her Outlook 2007 Calendar (In an Exchange Environment). My client has since removed that user from the Permissions Properties. But, for some reason the Shared symbol still appears on her Calendar Icon.

I confirmed that there were no other user that have permissions to her Calendar. As a test I added and removed a user in having permissions to the Calendar. The Shared Symbol disappeared for a while but returned once we restarted Outlook.

Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

To my knowledge because calendars are created via a mailbox in an exchange enviornment a seperate mailbox would need to be created and shared to all people needing the group calendar.

Or if a person would like to share their own they can choose the people they would want to have access to their calenders.

Is there another way to only create a calendar public?

Hi All,

My users are on Outlook 2007 and we connect to an exchange server (2003). The problem we are having is that previously shared calendars are suddenly becoming unavailable. The message that pops up is:

'The set of folders cannot be opened.'

A more detailed message suggests the following:

'This error usually occurs if the OST or PST file you are using is:
> Unavailable
> Protected with file permissions.
> On a share on a server and the network is down.
> Corrupt

To correct this problem, store the OST or PST file on the local computer.

You may also want to run the scanost.exe and scanpst.exe tools to verify file integrity.'

I have tried scanning them and they are fine. When I look at the permissions they are gone. When the user re-shares the calendar it is ok again but often looses the permission after a re-boot (but not always).

Any ideas welcome...

I have a user who is having an issue with Outlook 2007. The device is on the work domain, which is managed using Group Policy. The drive was imaged from a master image, like every other drive in our nearly 5,000 device network. My point is, this is something localized to the user or her machine.

Anyway, the user has many shared calendars that she views all at once. When viewing them, her preferred and current view is Day/Week/Month. The problem is that she switches constantly between her calendar(s) and email. Sometimes, when she switches to email and then back to calendar (by selecting between the two on the lower left menu), the calendars suddenly change from Day/Week/Month view to All Appointments view. When she changes it back manually, she has to reselect all of the shared calendars that she was viewing. This happens multiple times a day.

I already ran a macro to lock the current view, but the issue persists. Online research got me nowhere, and upgrading to Outlook 2010 is not an option right now.

What am I missing here? She wants the Day/Week/Month view to always stay. Why would it randomly change back to All Appointments view when switching between email and calendars?

Hi,

Have been trying for a while to sync windows 10 calendar on my laptop with windows 10 calendar on my wife's laptop. No luck so far.

I have linked both individual windows 10 calendars with our individual google calendars, and events transfer successfully from both windows 10 calendars, through both google calendars, but will not download to the other windows 10 calendar.

Is that clear?

What I am trying to say is that I can create an event on my windows 10 calendar, it transfers to my google calendar, and then to my wife's google calendar, but it does not load on to my wife's windows 10 calendar. This works both ways.

I have been using Outlook 2003 for many years then upgraded to 2007, which I've used for years.

Typically I would enter appointments into my calendar in my Outlook 2007 and sync that with my phone....the blueberry or iPhone 3GS....I upgraded to the iPhone4 and have put appointments into my iPhone and synced my iPhone using iTunes (which normally syncs my Outlook calendar as well).

However, I've noticed recently some appt's put into my phone were not showing up on my Outlook Calendar....more snooping and I've just tonight discovered I have another calendar named iSync-Calendar.ics! Well, that's where many of my missing appointments were found!!

So I look closer at my iPhone4 and go to settings>calendar> and look for my default calendar which is iSync-Calendar.ics!!!

I am assuming that somehow that got switched, but used to be "calendar" which was outlook.

I am hoping this doesn't happen in the future..but for now I'm displaying both Calendar and iSync-Calendar.ics on Outlook so I can see all my appointments!!

Glad I caught that tonight as I have double and tripled booked some time slots in the future not seeing them on my iPhone since default calendar was iSynch and NOT calendar and vice versa!!!

Do you think I corrected the problem? Can I sync the iSync appts into or import them into my Calendar??

I've had a persistent problem for several months since I migrated to a new hard drive. Outlook 2010 calendar is working, but only in Active List view. Any attempt to change to Preview or Calendar view produces the error message, "Could not read the calendar." Changing from Active List to List works some of the time, but inconsistently and sometimes it will hunt for the list and offer the same "Could not read the calendar." error message. This is very frustrating as I find it difficult to manage the list view and am accustomed to seeing the calendar week view.

I use an Android phone and use gmail and Google calendar to see mail and appointments on my phone. So, I've got Google Calendar Sync 0.9.4.1 running. Google Calendar Sync appears to be operating normally. I have a nice calendar view on my phone or web-based from my computer. I have tried adding the Google calendar to Outlook but it is a duplicate of the default calendar and I can't set it as the default. Also, MS Office does not permit me to delete the default calendar.

I don't like any of the work arounds. I just want the calendar to work like it should. Research discloses no real hint of anything that works including running scanpst. Scanpst does a great job at fixing the problem by wiping the whole calendar thanks very much MS.

When I access outlook on the web, I have the option of creating a new calendar. I use this to separate the type of events I put on my calendar. I have the holiday one, of course, but I also have one I use to keep all my school classes and events in, so they're a different color than everything else. I then just made one for 'special' events, because I've got an increasing amount of such events, like musical dates, opera dates, my nephew's boy scout events, etc, that I want to have show up separate from my classes. I want to be able to filter which sort of events show up, and I can on outlook.com. That's not my problem. I just click 'new calendar' and I can customize these sort of events.
However, the problem shows up when I go to the calendar app for windows 10. I use it a lot- a LOT -and it does show different calendars on the side bar. It's got my main outlook calendar, my 'birthday calendar', and the holiday calendar to choose from. I can filter one out, or let them all show up, etc. But those are the only three that show up. My 'special events' calendar and my 'classes' don't show up on the sidebar there. I thought maybe I just needed to wait until it automatically synced with outlook, but when it did, all my classes and special events disappeared completely. These two new, customized calendars don't sync with the app, and the events that are on those calendars disappear.

I use a high-speed broadband connection with other people in my small building, which I receive by cable from the shared router. I use Virtual Wifi running on my desktop (kinda like Connectify) to allow my other devices (ie laptop, tablet, phone etc) to connect to the internet when required, and a passworded homegroup to allow them to share files.

I'm just worried that this is neither secure nor private. I can see other computers on the network, so presumably they can see my devices too. I'm assuming that my files are fairly secure, and it's not like I distrust my fellow occupants, but I'd particularly really rather they not be able to see what devices I have, and when I'm online and not. Just for questions of home security I'd rather people not know when I'm in or out of my flat.

I don't need to share files very often so I've taken to making my network connection Public unless otherwise required, but my question is: Is there any way of setting up some kind of homegroup or workgroup that only my devices can know about and log into, on what is essentially a public network? Is there any feature of Windows 7 or third party I can use? What's the best way of setting this up?

I've considered buying a cable router which I think gives me extra protection, but I'd rather not buy an extra device if there's a software solution. Thanks!

I have Vista Home Premium 32 bit. The PC is essentially used only by me. I'm admin of course. I do have a guest account that I recently activated for my spouse to use. The issue is over sharing files and folders. I have 'stuff' on my PC that I do not want anyone but me to access. I thought I had disabled all access to shared folders. But one folder remains accessible in the guest account. Its the RECENT ACTIVITIES. The target or path is C:\Users\guest\appdata\roaming\microsoft\windows\recent. Previous I had cleared the cache then removed permissions. But today I see the same files and folders are accessible. What can I do to ensure the guest account has no access to music, pictures and documents that are in my, adminis folder.

Hello, and welcome to the Forums, i was looking here : Tutorial Index in the F's and found these 3 : File and Folder - Hide or Unhide - Windows 7 Forums , Encrypt or Decrypt a Folder or File , Folder Permissions
I hope one of those does what you want to do. Post back results please.

Is there any download for a Calendar, I can fill everything in and maybe that day and time it even pop's up and say's "blah, de, blah". That would be nice and very handy for a guy like me.

I have a Surface RT & was going to use the pre-installed Calendar app for the 1st time (tablet just given to me earlier this month). I don't want to have to sign-in each time just to check my own dates, I am not going to sync at all & don't want/need to put my dates into the "cloud" or have Microsoft see what I have dated.

What's a good-great app that I can just open & get to my dates w/o having to sign-in to sync anything?

I really don't know what else to call this but what happens is that sometimes I click on the calendar and time area to get the calendar displayed to me and either the screen goes blank or it changes resolution. Anyone else have this happen to them?

Hi kewljoe, and Welcome to the Forums!

Do you mean the Calendar in the system tray?
Don't forget that right beside the clock/date area is a small button to "Show the Desktop" and will immediately minimize all windows and show the desktop only, this may be what you're accidentally mousing over or clicking.

Hi
I have been using the Windows 10 Calendar app to try to synchronise my Exchange calendar and Google calendar in 1 app.
The exchange calendar is fine, but the google calendar will NOT sync!

If I delete the google account and re-add, it will download all the entries, but that is the last time it will sync.

I think I may find it a bit tedious doing that every time I want the calendar to update.
I have seen many other having a similar issue, but nothing has helped. I do not get any error message, it just never updates!

Any ideas?
Thanks!

I just did a massive search for a calendar app and the best one I found was Yahoo Calendar. It seems to be the most comprehensive, and has pretty much all of the functions of all the other calendars I could find.

It'll work from Google -> win Calendar , but you won't be able to update google by putting appointments in your Win 8 calendar , it's only going to work one way.

Hi all
I have just bought a laptop with Windows 7
Everything is fine but can you help with one thing.
On my main computer which is Vista I have the calendar set up to appear as soon as I switch on so all my appointments are there.
On the laptop with Windows 7 the calendar seems to be within windows mail live. Is it possible to set it up as on my desk computer?
Also can I transfer all the data(dates I have fixed) from the Vista to Windows 7 calendar

Right click your desktop, click on Gadgets, double click the calendar. The calendar gadget should now be on your desktop.
