hi fi guy

Wondering if there is the ability to search within a specific group of shared calenders? We use OUTLOOK 2010 to schedule our 12 installers, so i have a group of shared calanders which i have edit rights to in my favorites. I would like the ability to search that group of calenders as a whole for a specific key word (customer name), but whenever i try, the search only shows results from my personal calender. we plan on using the calenders as an archive, so the ability to go back and search these calenders to find a specific customer is vital, and the ability to group them and together search them as a whole would be incredibly efficient.

Hi,

You are unable to search items in the shared calendar, that's because that you are looking at view that is built up via Free/Busy data. You don"t actually have indexed items in that folder and so you cannot search it.

Best Regards,

Sally Tang

hi fi guy

First, thank you for your response. Are there any thoughts to making this type of a search available in the future, or is this something that is just considered beyond the scope of what Outlook is intended to be?
