Outlook webdav calendar not updating consolidating a dispatch center
One of the new features available in Exchange 2010 SP1 and higher (including SP2 and SP3) that I’m excited about (and already making use of) is the ability to share calendars from Exchange either in i Calendar or HTML format. Doesn’t Exchange 2010 already have improved Calendar sharing with the new federated sharing features available from RTM? And this new features doesn’t replace federated sharing, however if you want to share calendars is that the world doesn’t run Exchange 2010.
Some organisations will move to it over the next year or two; but lets face facts – some enterprises out there may move to Google Apps, Zimbra or something else, so Federated Sharing isn’t going to be an option.
So there is some risk in enabling the facility, but by default no user’s calendars are shared, and there are a number of controls available to user and admin to pull the feature in line with the business and individual user’s requirements.
Now you know a little more about the new feature, let’s take a look at how it comes together from a user perspective, and how it’s configured by the admin.
The recipient then can simply refer to the calendar via a web browser, or by using any i Calendar compliant software or web app they can subscribe to the shared Calendar.
