Powershell - Adding Shared Calendar to favorites RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have followed this guide

    https://www.quadrotech-it.com/blog/create-a-company-shared-calendar-in-office-365/

    And created a company-wide shared folder.

    I need to add this calendar to everyone's Outlook, which is done by adding it as a favorite in Outlook.

    After I am adding it to favorites, it would also show in the OWA which is what I want...

    However, I need to add this for 100+ users. Is there a Powershell script or any other way to get this calendar show up for everyone?

  • Nope. Adding to Favorites is a client-side operation, PowerShell cmdlets don't cover it. You might be able to do it with some EWS-based script, but I don't have one handy.

  • Hi Shimshey,

     

    What's your current environment, Exchange 2016 or Exchange Online?

     

    Based on your description, I understand that you want all users could add and review the shared calendar through Outlook or OWA. With my research, there's no related commands or script to add public folders to Favorites. As a workaround, you could try the following methods:

     

    Share an Outlook calendar with other people

    Share your calendar in Outlook on the web

    How to open a shared calendar from an Outlook sharing invitation

  • We are Exchange Online.

    What I am trying to accomplish is for HR to create a calendar for company closure dates and have all users share access to view them, I don't want to send multi-step instructions for all users.

  • Hi Shimshey,

     

    You could use methods in my last reply that assigning all users 'reviewer' permission to the shared calendar. Then the users just open and review the shared calendar in their Outlook clients, without multi-step instructions.

  • EWS and C# is your friend in this case. As mentioned, no native PS available for this task.
