Share a calendar with another user
Question asked by FlexWS - August 20, 2015 at 5:47 AM
Answered
I login to the webmail client with userA@domain.com and go to shared resources, select I want to share my calendar, select userB to have full permissions and save it.
 
Now I login with userB@domain.com and go to Calendar and should expect to see UserA's calendar under the Calender's dropdown, but it is only showing "My calendar".
 
Did I forgot anything, or is it just not working?

Two things:
  • userB needs to be in the same domain
  • userB needs to ADD your shared calendar to his calendars, then it will be accessible by him.

That is what I forgot.
UserB should still add it and it works now.
Thanks!

FlexWS, like Bruce said you need to make sure that UserB attaches the shared calendar.  Login as User B, go to My Settings | Sharing | Mapped Resources.  You should see the calendar that User A has shared.  Select that line and press Attach.  Now if you go to Calendars, User B should see that calendar.

FWIW, this whole process is not that intuitive. Suggestion: send UserB an email when something is shared and/or automatically add the resource instead of having to attach. Google Drive does both -- sends an email and automatically displays it in the recipients Drive.

User B should indeed add it himself before it is visible.
 
But it works great as far as I have tested now, user B can now see the calendar of user A in Outlook.
That was the goal, very nice.

FlexWS, I am glad that this helped you attach the shared resource.
 
Kevin, I can see you point in that an email notifying the User B that a resource has been recently shared (or the share revoked even) with instructions on how to attach the share.  Maybe when User A shares a resource that user can be given an option to send an email notifying the share recipients.

Just transferred the credit for the correct answer to this post as I really like your suggestion of being able to send an e-mail to notify someone when a calendar has been shared with them!

But Shared Calendars don't work with Version 16 Enterprise?
