When I try to go to the properties of another user's calendar it says that I do not have the proper permissions. I'm trying to configure permissions for a remote user's calendar so that their manager can view it.

Thanks in advance.

You can use the powershell script Add-MailboxFolderPermissions e.g.

Add-MailboxFolderPermission "DOMAIN\USERX:\Calendar" -User "DOMAIN\MANAGER" -AccessRights Reviewer

From the help contents, The AccessRights parameter specifies the rights needed to perform the operation. Valid values include:

  • FullAccess
  • SendAs
  • ExternalAccount
  • DeleteItem
  • ReadPermission
  • ChangePermission
  • ChangeOwner

What would I set if I just want to give another user Reviewer permissions so they can see the full details of the calendar? – Windows Ninja Jan 26 '12 at 14:41
just use the script as above as it already has "Reviewer" as the access right – Phil Jan 26 '12 at 14:45
Sorry, should have taken a closer look at the script first, sorry man. – Windows Ninja Jan 26 '12 at 14:47
