Set Up Calendar Features
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 page.
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.
Troubleshooting Calendar Appointment Problems
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.
Change Remote Calendar Update Interval
Remote calendars are updated every 12 hours by default. You can change the frequency of these updates in the administration console Class of Service or Account Advanced page, Data Source>Calendar polling interval.
Disable Attendee Edits to Appointments
Attendees can edit appointments in their calendars, but the changes do not affect anyone else, unless the user is the appointment organizer. If the organizer makes changes, these changes overwrite the attendees edits. You can not allow attendees to edit appointments in their calendars from the COS attribute, zimbraPrefCalendarApptAllowAtendeeEdit.
Other User Calendar Preferences
Users can modify the Calendar preferences listed in the Calendar Preference table. You can set the default behavior in the COS or Accounts Preferences page.
Time zone displayed in the user’s Preferences. See Managing User Accounts chapter, COS Calendar Preference to Set Default Time Zones. If the time zone is configured in the COS, the time zone configured in the domain is ignored.
A popup displays in ZWC when new calendar events are received
When users receive an invitation they cannot attend at the scheduled time, they have the option to click Propose New Time and select another time. The meeting organizer receives an email with the proposed time.
Note: When viewing appointments from mobile devices users do not see the deleted invite information in a faded view and they might not know that the invite was deleted.
