Calendar
Zimbra Calendar lets users schedule appointments and meetings, establish recurring activities, create multiple calendars, share calendars with others, and delegate manager access to their calendars. They can subscribe to external calendars and view their calendar information from Zimbra Web Client. They can also use search for appointments in their calendars.
Important: To allow users to share their calendars, address books, and Briefcase files, enable Sharing in the Features tab.
 
COS/Account Tabs
A calendar and scheduling tool to let users maintain their calendar, schedule meetings, delegate access to their calendar, create multiple personal calendars, and more.
When Group Calendar is not checked, the only Calendar feature is the ability to create personal appointments and accept invitations to meetings. The Find Attendees, Schedule and Find Resources tabs are not displayed.
Calendars can be nested within ZCS folders like Mail, Contact, and Calendar folders. The administrator creates a nested list of calendars using CLI. A nested calendar grouping can be imported through migration as well.
zmmailbox -z -m user1 cf -V appointment /<Calendar Name>/<sub-calendar name>.
This creates a calendar nested under the Calendar Name folder.
Sets the timezone that is used for scheduling in the Calendar application. A drop down displays the timezone list.
Forward calendar invitation to specific addresses
You can specify email addresses to forward a user’s calendar invitations. Users can also specify forwarding address from the Preferences Calendar folder.
The account the invitation is forwarded to must have been granted admin privileges on the shared calendar to be able to reply to the invitation.

Troubleshooting Calendar Appointment Issues
The CLI zmcalchk command is used to check for discrepancy between different users’ calendars for the same meeting and send an email notification regarding the discrepancies.
You can also use this command to notify the organizer and/or all attendees when an appointment is out of sync. See Appendix A, zmcalchk on page 186.
