Mark calendar items as private with Group Policy RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a few Execs that have asked that every meeting they schedule have the private check turned on automatically.  But I cannot find a way to do this with Group Policy out of the box, anyone have a suggestion on how to do this?

  • Hi,

    You can configure this option for clients by the following Office Administrative Template files:

    For more instruction, please refer to the following article, load the template on your DC:

  • You can configure it to be default for all emails... but not just meetings... Its under Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 > Tools | Options... > Preferences > E-mail Options > Advanced E-mail Options and the setting is called "When Sending a message" you can then set the Sensitivity to "Private"...

    My only other guese is that you could apply some sort of rule via exchange to process all meeting request from certian people and then mark them as Private... but i am not sure if this is possible... u might want to ask the exchange forum... Sorry.
