    Default Calendar view

    hi.

    Just installed zimbra and trying to catch up the calendaring system of zimbra. I have a question.

    I have create two users: user1 and user2. After logging from user1, I have added 5 new appointments. Now if I login from user2, how do I see the appointments of user1.


    Thanks
    Paras.

    In user1 right click the calendar > share.
    In user2 accept the share email and it will mount.

    (If you need CLI/JAVA/SOAP methods let us know.)

    Thanks for your reply.

    Is there anyway to allow the calendar of all users of the domain to everyone in the same domain?

    Thanks

    Not from the user UI at the moment, unless you have a distribution list (aka group) will all members of the domain in it.

    Zmmailbox - Zimbra :: Wiki

    So you'd start with:
    zmmailbox -z -m share@domain.com mfg /Calendar domain domain.com r

    That would give everyone permission but not mount the item.
    To see it they'd need to right click the word 'calendars' just under 'new calendar' > select 'link to shared calendar' > enter the info.

    Or you could provision with:
    zmmailbox -z -m user@domain.com cm --view appointment /SharedCal share@domain.com /Calendar

    I just filed Bug 34283 - send share notice email from zmmailbox

    How about -n for send notice?

    Usage would be:
    zmmailbox -z -m share@domain.com mfg -n /Calendar domain domain.com r

    I suggest NOT using -i for 'invite' as there'll be confusion on older systems in which it stood for 'inherit permissions' as well as confusion with 'insert permission' in rwidxa etc.

    In 5.0.x we removed the inherit flag from folder grants, and subfolder permission inheritance is now always TRUE. To prevent inheriting you must share the parent folder, then unshare each of the children by setting an explicit ACL on each of them.

    History:

    Quote Originally Posted by dkarp
    Back when we had the inherited/not-inherited -i bit on the grant rather than on the folder, there was no way to tell whether you could effectively create a subfolder within a shared folder. In order for subfolder creation to be really workable, you need insert rights on the parent folder (to create the subfolder) and read rights on the created folder (to see the subfolder you just created).
    But under the old regime, the simple set of effective perms on the parent folder wasn't enough. You could tell that you had read rights *on the parent* but not whether those read rights would carry over to the child folder. So we added the calculated "c" right that meant that you could create a subfolder and then see it.

    Under the new ACL model, this isn't a problem. Folders inherit the full ACL, so if you have read and insert on the parent folder then you're going to have read and insert on any subfolder you create. Now the client can just look for "r" and "i" in the shared parent's perms. If they're present, they can create a visible subfolder.

    Which means that we should probably get rid of the calculated "c" right for 6.0.

    Thanks a lot . These are what I am looking for.

    Is there any way to apply the following command to the distribution list. It seems like I have to do one by one to all the distributions lists users.

    zmmailbox -z -m user@domain.com cm --view appointment /SharedCal share@domain.com /Calendar

    I figured out the answer to my previous question. One last question.

    Inside from web client, is it possible to search users and view their calendars? Adding each and everyone's calendar might be a tedious task to the users. Is there any search facility (as we can search contacts) ?


    Thanks

    This does _not_ show you the information, but it _does_ show you if/when someone is busy. Try this:

    https://zimbra.domain.com/home/usern...r?fmt=freebusy

    (obviously you would change the URL to your server and the "username@yourdomain.com" to a valid email address... but it generates an html page with the user's calendar... and you can move around, change dates, etc. But again, maybe not quite what you were after...

    So my understanding is I can't do a search directly to view calendars of other memebers from the search box in my web client. Right?

    Not as far as I know... it's what I suggested (fmt-busy), or a busy-search, or have their calendar shared/viewable
