Hi All,

I created a public calendar in our compagny, and it works very well with outlook 2010. The only problem is that we can't invite users on appointments using OWA. Is there a way to activate this function, or maybe there is a better way to use common calendar?

The system we use is windows server 2008 and exchange 2010 without sp1.

I already read some posts about it, and the only thing I learned is that microsoft plan to remove public folders in futur versions of exchange.

Any help or suggestion will be appreciated,

Yves

If by Public Calendar you mean a public folder, then inviting is not really something that it is designed to do.
I compare calendars in public folders like a paper diary. Someone (receptionist for example) will manage that diary, entries will be added and removed manually.

If you want something automated, then you should use a resource mailbox instead.

I would also suggest that you update to Exchange 2010 SP1 as well.

Hi Sembee,

Thanks for interesting my case.

I understand what you mean and I agree with that. But the users can't understand (so do I) why we can invite from outlook and not from OWA. I would just need to notify if possible when a new appointment is set.

Can you explain me?

I will update the exchange to sp1 anyway, but I don't think it will help me with this problem. There is only one button missing on the OWA to invite and it is available in the mailbox calendar itself...

You can't invite a public folder to a meeting.
You can send a invite from a public folder to someone, but the public folder cannot process the responses because it doesn't publish free busy information. Meetings only work with mailboxes, either user or resource mailbox.

I'm sorry I wasn't clear, the question is: why can we do it from outlook and not from the OWA?

There are many things that can be done from Outlook that cannot be done from OWA. Why Microsoft make the decision on what can and cannot be done is something only they can answer. Don't expect anything to change though, because Microsoft would prefer public folders to go away.

Hi James-Luo,

This is a clear answer but if this issue has been under investigation since exchange 2000, I think I will use local calendar and copy paste appointment in the public calendar.

Thanks
