Is anyone aware of a way when using the outlook connector with user shared calenders to distinguish each users calendar apart, I have set the share permissions in the webmail on the calendars & cant see a way to rename or change the display name for those calendars,currently all shared caladers just appear as "calendar" which makes it very difficult for users to distinguish who's is who's. In an exchange environment the calendars appear as "calendar-John Citizen" or similar, this is what i am trying to acheive. The only way i have found that this is possible is to create a sub calendar/folder & name it by the users name and set the share permissions on this accordingly, however once doing this it is no longer the root calendar and stops functions such as reminders working in outlook when using the mapi.

There is a way (search the forum or the knowledge base, there's an article somewhere). However, this 'hack' is not supported or anything.

But take a look and see.

I have tried the hack mentioned here, as we experience this exact problem at one of our customers.

However, in our testenvironment, the hack didn't work.

Are there any specifics, besides the install notes, to follow to get this hack to work ?

The install we apllied the hack to is:

Server:
Windows 2000 Pro
KMS 6.1.3 Patch 1


Client:
Windows XP Sp2 with all patches
Office 2003 SP 2 with all patches
KOC 6.1.3. Patch 1

I have found that what the connector does is create a public calendar for each mailbox (named by user) that is on the server, these are only viewable after install by an administrative user, to enable all other users to see the calandars you need to change the permissions on each calandar, I have found that to have named calanders the easyest way is to manually create public calandars named as required, or do what is in my original post, which is to create a sub calander for each user in there account, however if you use this method the reminder dont work in outlook. This is definatly one drawback in kerio, and it needs to be resolved in kerio for it to be a 100% alternative to exchange.

Does anyone know if this issue has been addressed in any updates since 6.1.4? This problem is the one that has left me with egg on my face having told the Board that KMS is a completely cross-platform solution. I can't run the unsupported fix, as I'm running KMS on an Xserve.

Thanks

I have not seen it listed in any of the added features or resolved issues as yet. I sent a feature request through to support for this sometime back and it was acknowledged, however i have not received anything further to say that this issue has been addressed.

Thanks for your reply jonoa86. Shame Kerio haven't cracked this one, as well as KOC off-line caching. Both of these would enable me to recommend KMS to the dozens of our SME clients that keep asking me for a good groupware solution.

As for the shared calendars, OS X server 10.5 is looking very promising. Maybe this will put a rocket up Kerio's collective backsides ;-)

Cheers
