I have a situation where I need multiple users to have read/write access to a Resource calendar. In the admin you can only allow read access to a resource calendar and assign one admin read/write permissions.

I tried manually changing the ACLs for that calendar (edit status.fld) to grant read/write to a few users. Seemed to work fine. I'm just wondering if there will be any ill effects in doing so. Will the admin console revert my settings if I add another user through the console? Will anything else choke because of this?

OK, I approached this differently.

We have a resource called 'staff roster', where certain staff can modify a resource calendar, noting when staff are on leave/holiday/sick. We also do similar things for our cars, rooms etc.

Try this method that we used, ENTIRELY from the Admin console:

  • Assign various users to a group (e.g. Add BOB and JO to group "STAFF ROSTER ACCESS")
  • Edit the Resource (e.g. "Staff Roster")
  • Allow all users from your domain to see the calendar
  • Specifically add your users that will edit the resource (e.g. BOB and JO)
  • For the reservation manager, specify the group (e.g. "STAFF ROSTER ACCESS")
  • Click OK

You're done!
Test + deploy...

You can use a group of users as a resource manager instead of single user.

Problem is, if you *just* allocate a group, some users experience problems with not being able to make changes. It seemed like a really quirky bug... Something like "the most recently added user can edit the resource, but the previous person on the resource group list cannot". Or something like that. Quite annoying.

Hence, we found that if you add the users to the group as 'resource manager' AND if you add the user into the list specifically allowed to use that resource, then those staff can use that resource. (Even if you already said that the whole domain can view the resource).

YMMV, but that's what we found (must add Resource Manager + allow domain to read + allow individual users (who are going to "Write") to read)
