if you use the MailServer to share your Calendars, you probably get the Problem, that all mapped Calendars are named just "Calendar" and it´s a nightmare if you should make this clear to your users. One way is the "directory-view", so you see a subfolder of the user in Outlook. Another way is the tool "calendar2public" - if you may run KMS on Windows, you could use this one.

But there is also a workaround for Linux-based KMS!!!
It´s such simple, just make a symlink with the name-addition and let the user share this one! easy - working !


on server:
- go to yout store-directory into the user "xy"
- you see the directory "Calendar"
- type:
ln -s /Calendar "Calendar - user xy"
- in Outlook (user xy) set the user-rights for Calendar
- in Outlook from the "reader", if you open folder-mapping, you should the see "Calendar" and "Calendar - user xy", so select the secound and your boss is happy :)

good luck!

This modification is not recommended. No symlinks are allowed in the message store.
A lot of "luck" is really needed because data in the folder will be most probably corrupted after some time.

Thanks for your reply,

do you know another, secure way to solve that problem? May there be a way to change the foldernames? It´s really a problem, if all calendars are visible under the same name...

this unsupported tool for win.server is installed as a service, could it be, that it just rename the folder..? I mean, this could also be done under linux - if it´s a workaround..

I will be thankful for any comments, ideas...

We have the same problem here with the Contacts and Calendars
in Public Folders.

With Outlook, a Contacts folder can be virtually renamed for
display in Contact view fortunately. Then having many
Contacts folder with the same name is not a problem if the
users change the name of each ones in the Contacts folders
properties, in the tab where you choose to display as an
Address book.

But for the Calendars, this property is not available and
all calendars have the same name in Calendar View.

With both of these in Public Folders, Contacts and Calendars,
you can rename them. But then users who use Kerio Synchro-
nisation Plugin will not synchronize these folders because
it tries to find "Contacts" and "Calendars" in the root of
Public Folders.

As far as I can see, the calendar naming problem will only be solved with off line cacheing.

I could be wrong here, but I believe that with the off line stuff sorted, you will be able to rename the calendar locally rather than on the server. Perhaps not the most ideal solution, but it seems likely.

The other workaround of course is to create a new folder within KOC called Calendar - username and share it for others. The downside is that you cannot tell outlook to use this folder as the default calendar, so if you have any apps that populate the calendar directly, they will still write the appointments to the original calendar folder and not the new one you created.
