Calendar Permissions RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an interesting situation. I have a user who is a member of an Active Directory group called Human Resources. The Human Resources group is the Owner of a mailbox calendar called Campus Calendar. Unfortunately, the user cannot add anything to the calendar due to permissions. The error message states:

    You don't have permission to create an entry in this folder. Right-click the folder, and then click properties to check your permissions for the folder. See the folder owner or the administrator to change your permissions.

    This is not true. The user is a member of an AD group who is the Owner...

    I've tried recreating the users Outlook profile and explicitly granting them access to the calendar via PowerShell. Nothing seems to work. Has anyone seen this before?

    We are on Exchange 2013 and the user has Outlook 2013 installed.

  • Hi,

    in EMC please run following command:

    Get-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity Humanresources@domain.com:\calendar |fl

    Is the group listed there?

    I have seen cases where a mailbox is mirgrated to another server and language changes,this will create a new calendar under different name.

    Ex: Before migration the Calendar is called Kalender (in Norwegian),then this mailbox is migrated to another server where default language is English,it will create a new Calendar with english name.

    so try this command : Get-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity Humanresources@domain.com:\calendar |fl and change Calendar to respective mailbox language.

  • The calendar isn't Human Resources, it's Campus Calendar. I've run that command multiple times and it has the Human Resources group listed as the Owner.

    Get-MailboxFolderPermissions CampusCalendar:\Calendar

  • Is it mail-enabled universal security group? Verify that...

    Get-DistributionGroup "Human Resources" | fl Name, GroupType, PrimarySMTPAddress, AddressListMembership

  • can you log in to Capmus account in OWA and check how many calendar there is and if permission is correct there aswell?

    What if you grant individual users access to campus calendar,does it work?What kind of group is Human resource group (Distribution,security,domain,universal or domain local)?

  • The calendar permissions are correct and the Human Resources is a mail-enabled distribution group. Other users from the same AD group are able to create entries on the Campus Calendar.

    Again, I've explicitly tried granting access to the user on the calendar with no luck.

  • Anyone have any other suggestions? I've tried EVERYTHING.

    I have noticed some interesting functionality between Outlook and OWA. With my personal account, I can create appointments on the Campus calendar from Outlook. However, in OWA, I have to add the Campus Calendar as a location in order for it to work. This seems to be the same with other users as well.

    Also, in OWA, I cannot open any of the calendar appointments, regardless of the owner and whether or not they are accepted. Is there some functional difference between Outlook and OWA? It seems like they should perform similarly considering this is basic functionality.
