Outlook Meeting request on public calendar RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am simply trying to create a meeting request on a public calendar as one user and then another user being able to make changes to that meeting.  

    So user 1 uses the program i created to add a request for a meeting on the calendar with the subject request.  The meeting is added to the calendar.  Then I need to be able to have user 2 approve the request and simply change the subject to approved.  The meeting organizer is user1.  It is not letting user2 save changes to the meeting.  How can I accomplish this.

    I thought about having my company create a resource mailbox that would should up as a user.  Can I save the meeting request with this user as meeting organizer.  

    what are my options?

  • The feature you really need to use is Delegate Access - a user grants another user a certain set of permissions to one of the default folders in their Mailbox.  For calendars, that's the normal way of letting non-organizers make changes to an appointment.

    When you are using a Public Folder, then it's folder permissions that grant varying levels of access to specified users/groups.  However, I'm not sure if non-organizers can edit appointments in that folder even if they have the rights.

    If you simply want to approve the creation of items in a Public Folder, then use the Moderated Folder features for that folder (I think it has to be mail-enabled).
