Zimbra Shared Calendar in Outlook 2013 wo Connector

Postby jasggomes » Thu Mar 16, 2017 11:35 am

Hi to everyone,
Probably this has been already discussed, but couldn't find any valuable info regarding it so far.

We are using Zimbra Open Source 8.6.0 P7, and we are now using Outlook to access it. We were using Thunderbird but management decided to move to Outlook, against all my objections.

So they have 2 calendars shared from one central user and now they want to be able to use them on the Outlook.

So far, I added the calendars to each user outlook, BUT .... its only Read-Only!! They cant alter nothing using outlook calendar feature. In thunderbird there where no problems at all.

So my question is this feasible ?? or do we need to have the Zimbra Outlook Connector?

If the ZOC is needed, that means that we need to move on to the 'paid' version, right?

Or there is another way of working with the shared calendars from Zimbra on Outlook?

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards.

JG

If you have the capacity to run another server, I run mine as a VM, this is what I do at home and it has been tested with Outlook 2013 & 2016, IPhone and Android.

Thank you Doug, in fact we are running Zimbra as a VM, on Hyper-v.
I'll give it a try and let you know.

Thanks
