Calendar permissions on Office 365 groups?

Hi,

 

I'm currently evaluating switching to groups for a K12-school. But as I can't have students adding and removing bookings from the group calendar, I'm looking for a way to set read-only permissions. I've seen some reference to using the set-unifiedgroup cmdlet and changing CalendarMemberReadOnly, but I can't get it to work. calenderreadonly.PNG

 

 

 

 

 

And if I use get-unifiedgroup, the line is empty.

Am I missing something or is there another way?

Have you already tried -CalendarMemberReadOnly $true ?

Yes I have, it make no difference. According to the Set-UnifiedGroup technet-page it should be without $true, "To set read-only Calendar permissions, use the CalendarMemberReadOnly switch without a value."

I don't think I've ever seen this one actually working. @Christophe Fiessinger can you clear things up please?

Hi, we are investigating this internally, I will post an update as soon as we identify what's happening here.

Anything new regarding this issue?

"CalendarMemberReadOnly" Functional description:
This functionality was built for education, where in a classroom students do not have the ability to move events or appointments that a teacher adds in the group. Any member can still create a meeting event and send to the group, however they cannot add an appointment in the group calendar or edit any existing meetings or appointments added by their teachers. Currently this feature works only in Outlook for Web (OWA) which is the prominent app that is used in education, especially by students.

 

To set this property, run this command - 
Set-UnifiedGroup <group_smtpaddress> -CalendarMemberReadOnly:<$true/$false>

To view whether this property is properly set, use this command -
Get-UnifiedGroup <group_smtpaddress> -IncludeAllProperties | fl *calendar*

 

Please let us know the use cases you would like to have this functionality for, and the clients you would like to have it, so it will help us prioritize future developments on this better.

The problem is that I can't get the commands to work. I might be doing something wrong, but all I'm doing is connecting to Exhange online (using https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj984289(v=exchg.160).aspx as a guide). But neither of the above commands work for me.
