Re: Outlook 2010 - Shared Calendar sets all items as private.

Not open for further replies.



I am having exactly the some issue with Outlook 2010.

This is related to custom forms, which could be modified. But thats not a solution, as these custom forms are there for reason.

The real issue is, that with Outlook 2010 you can not set the private function within other calenders! As this worked with all other Outlook Editions before, I'd consider this as a bug.

Is there any solution, service pack, reg hack or something to reenable the " private" button within foreign calendars?

Some more info:

1. User1 shares his calendar, but has also a modified appointment form which presets the private option
2. User2 opens the calendar of User1, makes new appointments, but all of them are private and the private option is greyed out, so the user can not deselect it.
3. Even with no custom form the private button is greyed out, so user2 can not set private Items

As temporary fix I had to modify the calendar form.

Please help us out!



I have a user that is experiencing the same issue in 2010. She is able to go into her bosses calender and make new appointments, but they are all private. Any idea how to fix this issue?

She is running 2010, but her bosses is still on 2007. I do not think that this is the issue though. Everything was working fine up until this beginning of the month.


I figured out a work around. When you open a New Appointment, click on File and then click Properties. You can then change the sensitivity from private to normal. This does only change it for the Appointment that you are trying to make at the time. I still need to figure out how to get the sensitivity to default to normal or way it is now defaulting to private. Does anyone have any ideas?


I have a client experiencing the same problem on all Outlook 2010 clients. Has anyone been able to find a solution?
