    Default Colaborative groups through distribution lists?

    Hi all,

    I work for a large company (thus a single domain) and we are thinking of using distribution lists to group users (finance@domain.com, it@domain.com, ...).

    I would then use the group to set the read rights to the calendars in the group to be able to view each others calendars.

    Would this be the way to go? This has to be automated as much as possible. I got the creation of groups automated by having a script query a db.

    Thank you for any help or experience you might have!

    you can use distribution lists for rights purposes, but not in a sweeping way. i.e. say you have 3 users in a distribution list finance@domain.com, you would need to assign read access to user1's calendar to finance@domain.com, and to user2 and to user3. This is all scriptable too (see zmmailbox on the wiki) but like each time you add a new user to finance, you would need to modify the acl for their calendar to give the finance group access

    Thanks for your reply bdial. That's fine. I got user and distribution lists created and removed automatically via a shell script, now I know that I'm heading in the right direction, I'll press on with groups.

    I'll read the wiki before I get started though.
    Thanks again!
