I am currently having this problem too.

This calendar used to publish, yesterday it started asking for the password

when we tried to delete and republish it would fail on upload everytime.

I get the same result with any calendar; even a new blank test calendar.

Can anyone help me?

You'll need to be patient - there is a problem with the server. It's been

buggy off and on for weeks but over the weekend, it start asking for

passwords very frequently.

I'm glad I found this forum b/c I'm having the same issue for the past two

weeks with pop ups asking for passwords and not being able to re-publish my

calendar. This feature is used everyday in my company and is a big way of

communication. Hopefully it gets fixed b/c I've been troubleshooting, calling

and searching online. I finally came across this forum....

Thanks,

Mark

No luck.

If you deleted it from tools, accounts, it should stop the dialog -

republishing won't work at all (I haven't checked yet today though).

Can not publish calendar

I've tried deleting the calendar form "tools... accounts... internet calendars"

And I still can not publish.

Still get the same error:

The upload of "Calendar" failed. There was a problem uploading the file to the server.

Alternatives to Office Online

Sharing a calendar is essential to my business.

Are there alternatives to Office Online for this purpose?

Re: Alternatives to Office Online

If everyone is on the same network, you may be able to set up a webdav

server on a desktop in the network. See

http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/ol2007/publishcal.htm.

If you need internet access to the calendar, you'll need web server that

supports webdav. I use Intermedia.net to host our websites (on windows 2008)

and can publish my calendar to it, but any host that supports webdav should

work.

Re: Alternatives to Office Online

Diane,

Thanks for the time you spend working on all this with us...

I have the same problem with several computers. It used to work fine but

now for the last couple of weeks it doesn't... You have mentioned the server

may be flukey.... but as I scan back into 2/2008 messages I noticed there

were server problems noted as now... frankly I'm spending more time

attempting to find if the problem is on my side or Microsoft's than I can

posting calendars.

Is there a way for us to use Google Calendar as the server? It works fine.

Thanks for your efforts...

Re: Alternatives to Office Online

Yeah, this is not the first time there have been issues. It's fine for home

use - for sharing with family - but if calendar sharing is critical to

business, I'd either go with a hosting account that has guaranteed uptime or

set up IIS on the internal network.

I don't think you can publish to gmail using outlook - you can sync the

gmail calendar to outlook and share the gmail calendar though. Syncing

gmail calendar with multiple copies of outlook is not recommended - you risk

losing data.

I haven't checked too deeply with other hosting services - I have a cheap

godaddy hosting account but it doesn't appear to have webdav enabled.

Re: Alternatives to Office Online

You actually CAN "sync" of a sort to Google. You have to keep uploading the

ICS every time you change it - at least that is how I read their report on

it.

I tell you though, it really gets me. I have been relying on uploading my

working calendar from my work laptop to the Microsoft online calendar thing

and then I had been subscribed to it at home where I couldn't alter it, only

look at it which was just fine. I need to know what is going on at home, in

my calendar. Now I cant do that.

The only alternative I can see is to get something like exchange or find a

hosting account SOMEWHERE that will allow ics to sync. I don't know of such

a place, though, if someone else does.

I also just found this on a search. http://gcaldaemon.sourceforge.net/ which

is a free app to sync icalendar between Google and your computer. Haven't

tried it yet. Hope it works.

Re: Alternatives to Office Online

Gmail has their own sync tool for calendars -

http://www.google.com/support/calendar/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=98563. I

don't recommend using this on multiple computers, so use it like you do

office online- one uploads, others download.

There is also http://www.daveswebsite.com/software/gsync/

Re: Alternatives to Office Online

Here's a simple solution. I did a google search for ical servers and found

www.icalx.com. Create an account and use it as the ical server with Outlook.

It's free and works flawlessly.

I'm incredulous as to why Microsoft can't seem to provide this service...

Your suggestion of Daveswebsite looks terrific. But I have spent too much

time with this already. I must sadly resolve to find alternatives to the

Microsoft products I have come to love in better times...

Two problems with that - firstly Outlook 2007 can only subscribe to a

READ-ONLY internet-based calendar so you can't write to it (unlike the

Mozilla Sunbird and Lightning offerings which can read AND write to an

internet calendar) and secondly, there have been problems accessing

icalx.com (certainly here - I used to use it and gave up).

The Google Calendar synchronizing utility is the way to go.

Doesn't that depend on how the calendar is set up to be shared? For example,

anyone on an EXCHANGE server with the appropriate rights can change the

calendar of someone else so isn't it just that Microsoft made it happen that

way at their server and that at any other server it depends on how the

calendar is set to be accessed?

Yes with Exchange - but the OP is talking about Office Online which is an

INTERNET calendar.

Oh I see. Well, from what I can see having read the site, Microsoft have

shut down all published calendars from Outlook 2007 to their servers so that

is that. I hope I am wrong but that is what I read there.

Thank you... Where/what did you read about Microsoft shutting down

published calendars?

The following link describes that the preview feature will be

disabled... but not publishing.

Re: Alternatives to Office Online

Viewing the calendars online is ending, not publishing. The people you share

with will need to use outlook or similar app to view the calendar (once they

fix the problems with publishing).

Re: Alternatives to Office Online

You are correct - only the ability to view and manage the calendars in a

browser is ending. AFAIK, this will happen closer to the release of office

2010.

"Publishing calendars online and subscribing to them do not change. You can

still publish and subscribe to calendars through Microsoft Office Outlook

2007. You can subscribe to published calendars if you use a program using

the WebCal protocol, such as Outlook, Windows Live Calendar, Google

Calendar, or Apple iCal. Calendar updates are sent through Outlook as

before, and subscribers download updates just as they do today.

The discontinuation of the online tools means you can no longer preview,

edit or remove published calendars by using your Web browser. To preview a

published calendar with a Web browser, you must subscribe to the calendar

using a service like Windows Live Calendar. To change or delete a calendar,

you must use Outlook. "
