Shared Calendar Order Keeps Moving After User Opens Outlook RRS feed

  • Question

  • SBS 2011 & Outlook 2010

    When a user logs onto their workstation and opens up Outlook, the order of their shared calendar is not the same as when they logged out. Here what I mean...

    Person A will arrange their shared calendars in the following order:

    • Person A
    • Person B
    • Person C
    • Person D
    • Person E

    It will stay like that until Outlook is closed. When Outlook is opened again, the order changes:

    • Person B
    • Person C
    • Person D
    • Person E
    • Person A

    How am I able to make it where Person A is on the top (far left) and the other users stay in the same order?

  • Hi

    Perform this

    Close outlook - Go to start -> Run -> and type Outlook.exe /cleanviews

    wait for sometime

    Close outlook - Go to start -> Run -> and type Outlook.exe /resetnavpane

    re add the calenders again.

    It will work for you.

  • I wouldn't use Cleanviews as it will wipe out all custom views - it's unlikely the cause of the problem anyway.  Resetnavpane alone should fix the problem.

  • I will have to give this a try once I get a faster (and secure) wireless connection.

    Quick question about Resetnavpane... Should I put everything in the order that is wanted, close Outlook and then Outlook.exe /resetnavpane or will it work with Outlook open?

  • Resetnavpane will reset the navigation pane back to the default and create a new navigation pane file, so no, sorting the calendars before won't help. All folders on the favorites and any other customizations will be removed and you'll need to add them back.

    You will need to close outlook then restart Outlook using the resetnavpane switch.

    Close Outlook. At the Start search field on Vista or Windows7 Start menu or in the Start menu, Run command (Windows key + R), type

    outlook.exe /resetnavpane

    Then press Enter (or OK button) to restart Outlook.

    Note: Make sure there is a space between the words.

  • Back from vacation with an update...

    outlook.exe /resetnavpane  removed all my shared calanders which means I have to set them up again.

  • As informed above by Diane, that switch will set the outlook to default navigation pane.

    you have to manually add the calendars now.

  • Shared calendars added and I am back to the original problem (see first post).
