Office 365 Shared Contacts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Background: We are setting up O365 for our 25 person non-profit. We currently have one email box, svc@svc.org. We also have one alias info@svc.org which forwards to svc@svc.org. Our team is split into departments: Editors, Accounting, Funding, Marketing, Interns, IT and Programs. We have several people in each department. Every department has one leader. Our Office Manager is in every department.

    Objective: We want all users to view one shared contact list and one shared calendar, but we only want our Editors to edit the contacts and calendar.

    Best plan: How best to manage a shared contact list and shared calendar in O365? We are thinking to create a "SVC@SVC.ORG" user with an inbox, a contact list and a calendar.

  • Hi,

    You may consider to set the default permission of the shared contact list and shared calendar to 'Read all details' and then grant editor permission to your editors.

    If I've misunderstood something, please feel free to let me know.
