Outlook, viewing calendars RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am wondering, is opening other peoples calendar in Exchange now supported on Outlook for Mac somehow?

    Trying with our default settings does not work, it gives me this error message: You do not have permission to open this folder. Contact USER for permission. 

    Our default policy is that you can view free/busy info on all employees, and this works exceptionally well on Windows clients

  • Hi Siilverpants,

    According to my research, Outlook for Mac cannot open another user’s calendar when the user’s Calendar folder permission level is set to Free/Busy. This feature is available only in Outlook 2010 for Windows and higher.

    To open a shared calendar in Outlook for Mac, the user must grant you permissions of Reviewer or higher.

    Please refer to the following articles to set the right permission and check the result.

    If you have more concern about this issue, please feel free to tell me.

    Regards,

    Perry
