Hey Folks,

We recently started using Kerio Connect through a third party service and once we created a shared calendar for vacation and delivery dates we were unable to share that calendar with anyone who was not within our domain. Obviously businesses use and need to share data with subcontractors, external parties or even employees on the same network with different primary email addresses. Am I missing something? Is this feature already available and I just misunderstand something? Can it be on the road map?

Thanks,
Darryl

Here is my experiences with trying to share a calendar folder externally:

1. You can directly subscribe to a calendar by URL, with authentication. This means that you need to create an account for each of your client, or have them all share an account (which is obviously bad), and that whatever interface you are subscribing with (an app, an online service, etc) needs to be able to deal with authentication.

2. You can directly subscribe to a calendar by URL WITHOUT authentication. But you'll need to set the permission on your calendar folder to allow to everyone including anonymous source. This goes without saying is usually a bad idea, because information there is available to everyone who happens to stumble on it.

In my opinion sharing an internal calendar with external 3rd-parties is generally not ideal, doesn't matter what service you use. I would recommend you to use invitations to alert your associates with only the information they need to know.
