    Default Group Calendar(s)

    Greetings

    Is there a way to set up calendars so that each user in a specific domain can see appointments booked in every other user calendar in that domain.

    The detail of each appointment is not so important as being able to ascertain availability of staffing resources.

    I'm hoping there's a way of doing this auto-magically without each user having to manually share their own calendar with each other member of the domain.

    Thanks for reading.

    there is no way to do this using the regular admin ui, but you could do it through scripting with zmprov. If you setup a script that created the user, then does

    Code:
    zmmailbox -m account mfg /Calendar domain yourdomain.com r
    This will share a user's calendar with the entire domain yourdomain.com. This is good enough so that if you were scheduling a new appointment, and you each person you want to see the availability for it would show up. If you actually needed every person's calendar to be mounted for overlay on yours that would take a bit more scripting.

    What I did was create a resource "Office" and from the Admin GUI did a "view e-Mail" on the resource, Create Calendar, followed by share Calendar with all the users that needed access to it. < all have manager access to the share so they can add events >

    Are there any plans to make it possible for a user to set domain-wide sharing via the Web UI (or for an admin to do so while editing an account in the admin UI?) There are enough cases where this could be helpful, especially if you're on a hosted Zimbra domain where you do not have access to the command-line, because it's not your server.

    There is a pretty popular RFE for some sort of share management/discovery vote for it
