How to allow others to view or edit your calendar items/meetings in Outlook?
For example, you want to allow other exchange users to view or edit calendar items or meetings in your Outlook calendar, how could you set the permissions? There are two solutions to get it done!
- Allow others to view or edit default calendar items/meetings with Delegate Access
- Allow others to view or edit any calendar items/meetings with Folder properties
You can allow other exchange users to view or edit your Outlook folders by the Delegate Access feature in Outlook, including the default calendar folder.
1. Click File > Info > Account Settings > Delegate Access.
2. In the opening Delegates dialog box, please click the Add button.
3. Now the Add Users dialog box comes out. Please add the exchange users who you will allow to view or edit the default calendar items to the Add box, and click the OK button. See screenshot:
4. Now you get into the Delegate Permissions dialog box, please specify one of permission levels from the Calendar drop down list, select None from other drop down lists, and click the OK buttons successively to close both dialog boxes.
(1) If you want to allow other exchange users to view your calendar items only, please select Reviewer from the drop down list; to edit your calendar items, please select Author or Editor from the drop down list.
(2) If you want to prevent other exchange users from viewing private items in the default calendar, please uncheck the Delegate can see my private items option. See screenshot above:
