Is it possible to synchronize calendars between Outlook and SharePoint such that a user in Outlook can elect, on any given calendar entry, to have that entry post to a SharePoint calendar AT THE SAME TIME? Our division has a presence on our SharePoint
intranet site. On the site is a calendar that shows vacation time of all division employees. What we hope to be able to do is that when an employee enters there vacation on their own Outlook calendar, that it updates the Employee Vacation Calendar
on the SharePoint site too.
I am aware of the ability to synchronize calendars, and have the SP calendar show up in Other Calendars in Outlook, and then drag a copy from the Outlook calendar to the SharePoint calender as shown here: http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/Blogs/GetThePoint/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?List=8d9e2a99-f288-47c2-916b-2f32864f7b82&ID=73&Web=5e4647a0-e7d0-4626-b71c-b1ff06402465,
but we are hoping to even eliminate that copying step.
Is it possible to display an outlook calendar in sharepoint as read only.
All updates to the calendar must be done in Outlook.
Sharepoint 2010 and Outlook 2007
I'm using Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 64bit.
My company uses a hosted Sharepoint server (I guess it's Sharepoint 2010). There's a team calendar, which I would like to connect to my Outlook 2010. Linking it to Outlook works fine until it tries to update the calendar with the Sharepoint server. I shows
the following error:
Error (0x80070005) when running the task "SharePoint": "You are not authorized to view the SharePoint list (team calendar). Contact the administrator of SharePoint site. HTTP 401."
So this tells me, I'm not authorized to connect - which is quite clear because Outlook never asked my for any username or password.
Funny thing is when I try to add an internet calendar (Right mouse click on calendars, Add calendar, Internet calendar) and use the url of the sharepoint list, it asks me for username and password, but then fails to add the calendar, as it isn't a webcal
(which is OK).
BUT: As Outlook at this moment has the username and password, the exisiting Sharepoint calendar synchronizes correctly. This works until Outlook is being restarted.
Does anyone have an idea why I'm not asked for any authentication? Maybe there's some setting I haven't found yet? It works with trying to add the webcal any time when I start Outlook, but t
