    Question Difference in Admin and Manager

    Can anyone tell me where I can find information on what the difference is between giving a user Manager rights and Admin right when sharing a calendar? Also, what does a faded calendar entry mean?

    Administer = able to control permissions/sharing with others.

    This was already possible, just added to the sharing dialog in 5.0.7+: Bug 26363 - User with Manager rights to a calendar should be able to grant Manager rights (Ignore the bad title - we ended up calling a new role 'admin' - if we did it as part of the 'manager' role that would change current behavior of shares and some might not want that.)

    None - None
    Viewer - View(r)
    Manager - View(r), Edit(w), Add(i), Remove(d), Accept(x), Decline(x)
    Admin - View(r), Edit(w), Add(i), Remove(d), Accept(x), Decline(x), Administer(a)

    (r)ead - search, view overviews and items
    (w)rite - edit drafts/contacts/notes, set flags
    (i)nsert - copy/add to directory, create subfolders
    action (x) - workflow actions, like accepting appointments
    (d)elete - delete items and subfolders, set \Deleted flag
    (a)dminister - delegate admin and change permissions

    For instance you could make yourself a custom 'author' or 'editor' role if using SOAP/CLI/Java to add permissions - something like:
    Editor - View(r), Edit(w), Accept(x), Decline(x)
    Author - View(r), Edit(w), Add(i), Accept(x), Decline(x)

    zmmailbox -z -m modifyFolderGrant /Folder account rwx

    The createMountpoint command is commonly used after this:
    zmmailbox z -m createMountpoint --view appointment "/Vacation Calendar" /VacationDates

    You can do any of the following [account <name> |group <name> |domain <name> |all |public| guest <email> <password>] followed by the permissions like r, rw, rwix, rwixd, rwixda, none, etc.

    Bug 15205 - share roles - custom (editor / author) levels
    Bug 12654 - Request Editor share level between Viewer and Manager
