Shared calendars in iCal via Exchange 2007

I am trying to test a solution for a user that has an iMac she wishes to connect to our Windows network and access her email and calendars from home. She will VPN of course, and upgrade to Snow Leopard for Exchange support. I have everything working up to that point on a test MacBook with 10.6.2 that is on the inside (will test VPN after everything works internally). I created an Exchange account that I can receive mail in and normal calendar events in iCal.
The situation she is attempting to do is to see shared Exchange calendars. Not public folder calendars, but individual calendars that have been shared with her. Now in Outlook, all you have to do is click Open a Shared Calendar and input the user name of the calendar owner. In iCal, I think it is the Subscribe function, but it asks for a URL. What am I supposed to enter there? I have Outlook Web Access (OWA) URLs for the calendar I am trying to access, but when I input the URL string, I get an error saying the data was not valid.
Anyone else doing this???
BTW, here is a link to a shot of the error message I am getting:

There is an alternative way you could try which works very well for our client who uses both macs and pc's on a windows network.
On iCal go to ICAL > Preferences. Click on the Accounts tab, select the exchange account and click on the delegations tab. On here click the + symbol and type in the first few letters of the user who's calendar she needs access to - if exchange is configured correctly it should automatically find the username and add that calendar to iCal for her to view.

  • Microsoft Exchange shared calendars through iCal on iPad or Mac

    This is surely not an original question, but -
    My company uses Microsoft Exchange.  I have synced it to my iPad for calendar, contacts, and email, and it works very well.
    We also use shared calendars, and I utilize this feature often via Outlook on my PC.  However ...
    1.  I'd like to be able to view MS Exchange shared calendars on iCal on my iPad.  Is this possible?  Obviously, no one will grant me permission to view their contacts or emails, but calendar-only is what we share.  Is this possible?
    2.  Is it possible to view MS Exchange shared calendars through iCal on a Mac?  I have a colleague who has an iMac with iCal synced to Exchange and it works great.  However, we do not know how to view shared calendars (from MS Exchange) through iCal.  Again, we want to share calendars-only - no email or contacts.  Can anyone help with this?

    Apple does not support public folders of the type "mail" for their Apple Mail,iCal and Address Book

  • Can I create a shared calendar on iCal from the New iPad?

    My company just gave out iPads for use to all field employees. My coworkers and I currently have an Outlook shared calendar that we utilize for scheduling our work. We can not access the shared calendars on our iPads, therefore I would like to create a shared calendar in iCal that we can all access for sharing our schedule as we were doing on Outlook. Is this possible?
    NOTE: The idea is that I would like to use the iPad as the sole resource, instead of carrying our laptops around just to access the shared outlook calendar/schedule. The laptops are outdated junk that requires roughly 20 mins of time just to power up, connect and sign in to our servers...very inefficient.
    Thank you!

    I have a bluetooth 2 keyboard from Brookstone, will it work with the iPad?

  • Share Specified Calendars in iCal via iCloud

    I have a specific Calendar on my MBP which I want to share with my wife who has an iPad2,
    We have both upgraded to ios5 on iPad 2 and OSX Lion on my mBP.
    Any advice on how to share specific calendars over icloud.

    Trying to do the same thing. Want to share an iCal calendar from an iMac running Lion to my girlfriend's iMac running Snow Leopard.
    Trying to subscribe to my Lion iCal shared calendar from her Snow Leopard iCal, iCal (on hers) asks for a URL. So no go there. I signed into my iCloud account via Safari on my Lion iMac. I got to the iCloud site via Safari and viewed my iCal calendar with the little speaker icon that was mentioned in one of the replies. However, clicking that icon does nothing. Hmm. Not very "Apple-like" is it?

  • Show shared calendars in ical wiki

    Hello everybody,
    We use the snow leopard server version 10.6.4 on a xServe.
    Personal calendars are shared, so we can see the calendars of each others in iCal.
    But I want to make visible the shared calendars on the wiki (calendar) server. Now I can only see my personal sychronosized calendar online.
    So, how can I add shared calendars on the wiki server?

    There is an alternative way you could try which works very well for our client who uses both macs and pc's on a windows network.
    On iCal go to ICAL > Preferences. Click on the Accounts tab, select the exchange account and click on the delegations tab.

  • Need to synch two outlook calendars with iphone via exchange

    I get my work email via an exchange server and read it at work and on my laptop using entourage.
    It's great, the exchange server works really well (we just moved from lotus) and all of my email is synching beautifully across two computers and my iphone.
    But for my calendar issues. I run my boss'es calendar from my lap top and computer, and I read it via entourage. I have permissions to read/write/edit etc.... as does he. But when I synch via exchange only my calendar is shown, not his. I use ical for me, and not the entourage calendar. But I am constantly referring to his, adding, deleting, etc. I'd like to be able to do this on my iphone.
    So can I do this? So my email, etc, but his calendar via exchange. On his machine, he reads his email and his calendar.
    I tried to set up a separate exchange account on iphone and only one is allowed. If I could do this, problem solved.
    Surely I'm not the only person to need to do this?
    thank you

    You have to use a computer - not possible to do on iPhone that I know of - grant access and then the recipient will be able to view - but again will need full Outlook functionality - not possible on the phone - (well I have not tried to use the new Outlook app)

  • Syncing shared calendar in iCal

    My wife and I use google calendar's to put all of our events and commitments in, and we "share" our respective calendars with the other so we can see what the other is up to and try and plan around each other.
    I use the mail app and iCal for e-mails and my calendar, however I have not been able to find a way for the shared calendar (my wife's calendar) to show up on my iPhone/iPad.  Ideally I would like to see both her and my events, and be able to add things to both calendar's if possible.
    Doe anyone have any ideas on how this should be accomplished?
    Thanks so much!

    You should be able to select the calendar in the Calendar app at by clicking the little triangle beside it's name when you mouse over it. Select Share this Calendar and change the Permissions setting for the person you are sharing with. If your wife is not there then you'll have to delete the calendar on her device then send an invite with the appropriate permissions. Shared calendars verses synced calendars probably have different options.

  • Can I publish an event to more than one shared calendar in iCal?

    I have shared calendars (called "home") with my wife & kids and (called "Work") with my secretary at work so that my family can add home events and my secretary can add work things .
    I've done this as I don't want my secretary seeing when my kids have an appointment to see the doctor or my kids to see when I have appointments with clients at work etc.
    However some things (like when I've booked leave from work) need to be on both calendars.
    QUESTION: Can I publish one event (using OS X Yosemite or iOS8.2) to multiple calendars  ("home" & "work") in iCal?

    i generally hate toolbars because it makes the browser look cluttered and hogs memory. but u should ask an expert on this if it possible its not too easy, addons will probably help you, for example if you have the stumbleupon toolbar, there are addons that will create an extra button for you to put anywhare for quick access. this solution probably may not work with other less known addons.

  • Multiple calendars, 1 (work) via Exchange, no Nuevasync

    PC user here, looking for any new ideas please for a fix to be able to sync two calendars to my 3G iPhone. Have to have work e-mail and calendar via employer's MS Exchange server, so that unfortunately nixes syncing Google calendar via Exchange. Was utilizing Nuevasync, but it mysteriously stopped working for me a couple months back; have purged/reset everything multiple times - it says it's working, they can't find a fix for me and I'm tired of messing with it. Have been using MobileMe which of course works flawlessly, but would love to find a cheaper alternative before ponying up $99/year. Free is great, cheap is good, even one-time fee is OK... but $99/year is making me tense.

    I found a posting from a few weeks ago that sounds like a very similar problem to mine: 82
    I still haven't found a solution. My calendar and contact items seem safe on my iPhone, but I need to be able to sync them to my MacBook.

  • I can't add a entry in a shared calendar on iCal (Mountain Lion) but on iPhone it is ok

    My Partner is sharing her business calendar with me. (view and edit)
    In the past I was able to add calendar enties on my MacBook, iPhone and iPad. Since a couple of days, I can do this only on the iPhone & iPad but not on the Macbook Pro. (Mountain Lion) I can see the entries, I can change time and so on, but i can't select the shared calendar in the edit window.
    Anybody has a clue what is going on?

    See if you can go to your Calendars App and select a previous event to see what Calendar the event was added to (iCloud or Yahoo). After that is determined you can go to or and add the event there to see if it will populate on your device. Another troubleshooting step is deleting the iCloud account from your device and also deleting the Yahoo account. Then check to see if you can add an event without it syncing to a email. If you can then it may have just been a bug and you can add both accounts back and try adding the event again. I would also recommend only using one service to sync your Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, etc. Such as either iCloud only or Yahoo only, as using multiple accounts means your data is spread around and can be hard to isolate when something goes wrong.

    Hi Ansev,
    Thank you for your question.
    By my testing, user who was migrated to Exchange 2013 cannot access mailbox on Exchange 2007 with 500 error, although user account have “Full Access Permission” to mailbox on Exchange 2007.
    I suggest we migrate account which has “Full Access Permission” for other user  to Exchange 2013.
    If there are any questions regarding this issue, please be free to let me know.

  • Bug iCal and Exchange 2007 - try to get shared calendars from colleagues...

    When I go to options --> accounts --> delegate, iCal comes with an error (94)
    Here I can't find any option to ask my colleagues' permission to view their calendar.
    I now added one person, and since then iCal crashes when I click the delegate tab. The person is not to be found in the list, but that could be because the app freezes instantly.
    When I restart iCal it starts opening the calendar of my colleague (which doesn't work, because permission is not granted). My calendar is not shown on startup (VERY annoying!!!)
    What to do to get my calendar back??
    And how do I get rid of the crash? On that tab is also the button located to grant my colleagues permission to my calendar, and that I need to click... but iCal freezes

    I was so excited when work finally upgraded our Macs to Snow Leopard hoping I was getting off of Entourage for good and yet, here I am again, needing it because this doesn't work for me.
    This means I still need Entourage to see my boss' calendar.
    Please fix this.

  • Sync iCal - iPhone - Exchange 2007 broken after MobileMe Calendar upgrade

    I need to keep contacts and calendars in sync between my work pc (XP, Outlook 2003, Exchange Server 2010), my home Mac (10.6.6) and my iPhone (3GS, iOS 4.3). Until recently, that worked fine by the following (roundabout) way: PC syncs with Plaxo online via Outlook add-in; Plaxo syncs with Mac; Mac syncs with MobileMe; MobileMe syncs with iPhone. However, the recent upgrade to new MobileMe calendar breaks this workflow, at least for calendar syncing, because Plaxo cannot synchronise with the new CalDAV cloud-hosted calendars. Can anyone suggest another way of getting this to work?
    I thought MobileMe for PC might be a solution, but while it can show MobileMe calendars in Outlook, it can't synchronize them (and it seems not to work with Windows XP). A while back, I tried using Google Calendar as the focal point, but found Google Calendar Sync for Windows created a lot of duplicate items, lost items and general mess.
    PS The office network doesn't run Exchange ActiveSync and does not allow a vpn connection from Mac or iPhone.

    Hi [email protected],
    So I thought I was the only person doing that crazy workflow to get everything synced. I do it exactly the same way.
    I stupidly upgraded to the new MobileMe last year when first invited, and spent the next few days working out how to get it all back and working. I have been happily syncing everything the old way since then.
    My major concern now is that I just received an email from MobileMe today saying I have to upgrade now as they have stopped syncing the old calendar! I haven't checked this yet (I will in a sec), but if I have to upgrade, that means I lose everything that has worked so well since MobileMe started.
    My crappy work Blackberry is useless for mirroring my Outlook calendar, so syncing my work onto the much more user friendly iPhone had been a saviour. Now I have all of my work and personal appointments in the same place, and I never miss anything.
    What to do now? Is there another way to get my PC calendar onto my iPhone, apart from the Exchange Activesync option which my office also doesn't support.
    I'll hold out as long as I can...
    Work PC (XP, Outlook 2003, Exchange Server 2010), home MacBook Pro (10.6.7), iPhone (4, iOS 4.3)
