Sharing Outlook Calendars & Permissions

DocketCalendar events cannot be posted directly to a calendar, unless it has been shared with you and you have been given the permission level "Owner. 

The owner of the Calendar must set this permission level for you. They do so by right clicking on the calendar they want to share with you.

In older versions of Outlook, permissions included a dropdown menu that allowed you to set permissions for a shared Outlook Calendar with more granular levels of control. CalendarRules is designed to work with the highest level of permissions “Owner”

If you do not see the “Owner” option, (See Example: 2) You will need to execute a PowerShell Command to set the permissions level.


You will need this to be updated by the M365 administrator, via the GUI or PowerShell. e. Once you establish a PowerShell session for Office 365 with an admin account, you can use the following command to set owner permissions.
