So, am trying to move our company away from the ever failing Public Folder Calendar synchronisation issues in Entourage 2008. Tried Outlook 2011. What a joke! Limited amount of All Day events able to be viewed which is a real problem for us (unless using 'List' view of course), can't invite people from events created in Public Folder calendars (only from your personal calendar) and there is no ability to right-click and say move-to or copy-to for individual calendar events anymore.
So have turned to iCal. The problem here is that iCal does not adhere to the fine grain permissions applied in the Administrator's Webmail account - which Entourage and even Outlook do. iCal strictly follows the permission level set in Kerio Admin (Users - Rights - Folder Admin area) - so either a user is an Administrator of all Public Folder Calendars or they can read-only all Public Folder Calendars. It's all or nothing - why?? I don't want all staff who need to be able to write in to Public Folder Calendars to be able to administer all Public Folders. And I also want some staff to only be able to read some of the Public Folder calendars - it's the only proven way to maintain the integrity of the information.
Also in iCal, if an event has been created in a Public Folder calendar by another user - only that user can edit the event! So it recognises 'Administrator' status through Kerio Admin but then builds an impenetrable wall around events so that only the author can audit them.
Has anyone else had these problems. Can anyone suggest a work around?
