User updating gal
I’ve quickly tried this in Outlook 2010 beta – simple right click in the calendar list, choose “Add Calendar” and then select “From Internet…” As above, after popping the i Calendar URLs in the subscriptions are created in the local Outlook client.
And, finally let’s not forget HTML sharing, which does exactly what you’d expect: Now you’ve seen the user experience let’s take a look at what needs to be done to get it up and running in your SP1 environment.
To get it all enabled we need to do the following: Setup of the External URL is pretty standard stuff so I won’t cover it here.
Moving on to the Calendar Publishing OWA virtual directory feature, let’s look at what it’s made up of.
Give the policy a name and add a new “domain” called “Anonymous” and select an appropriate maximum level of access: After you’ve added the “domain” anonymous to the policy, make sure it’s enabled, then press Next.
This lives the “owa” virtual directory as “/owa/calendar” and has anonymous, http access enabled (watch out ISA/TMG users).For our first example, let’s have a look at Exchange’s primary competitor, Google Apps.To add the shared calendar to Google Calendar, the end user chooses “Add” then “Add by URL”.Although I don’t use Google Calendar I use i Google and it allows me to see my Exchange calendars on my homepage via the Google Calendar widget.) Next up it’s Zimba.Add a new Calendar, choose Synchronise appointments from remote calendar, then pop in the Exchange i Calendar URL: Again, the Calendars show perfectly: Finally let’s not forget Outlook users; from Outlook 2007 onwards i Calendar subscriptions are supported.
