we're thinking about switching from Exchange to Kerio, since we are replacing our server.
Now I have the following question:
We now have exchange, several users use their accounts just for business, for example P.
In outlook other users connect to their own calendar, but also to the shared calendar of P. Some users can only view the calendar in outlook, others are also owner of Patrick's shared calendar, also in outlook.
But on my mobile device I can't connect to Patrick's shared calendar. So to make this work I have to install the useraccount of Patrick on all mobile devices (windows phones/android&apple devices). I then disable the option to sync mail, contacts & tasks, and leave the sync-option on for the calendar.
So for all users with owner rights, this works now. Not ideal, but it works.. For the users without owner rights, this means they cannot view the calendar. For them I have to sync it through google connect.
I now want to switch to Kerio.
And the question is: Does Kerio support shared calendars on mobile devices? So can I connect to P.'s calendar, even when I don't add his account to my mobile device?
Better yet.... can I create an "calendar-user" who has multiple calendars, which I can share to every one in my organisation when needed? So I can give everybody his/her own account and calendar, without the need to share this with the entire organisation?
Hope I've made my question clear enough .

Yes, you can connect to shared or public calendars from Android and iOS device via either Activesync or CalDAV. You specify which folders to synchronize to your device using Kerio Connect Client. You can read about it in our knowledge base http://kb.kerio.com/1507
