Hi

 

We currently enable all users to view each others calendars which works fine but what I have been asked to implement is to restrict the view for a subset of users. this subset of 40 users we would like to only see user calendar entries as busy and not the detail. Is this possible from the admin portal or via powershell. We currently only use OWA

 

Thanks

 

Alistair

Hi!
You can archive this with powershell!

Here a blog post describing the general steps and options:

https://theitbros.com/add-calendar-permissions-in-office-365-via-powershell/amp/

Official documentation:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/exchange/mailboxes/set-mailboxfolderpermission?vi...

If you don’t want to do this one by one, you’ll need to write a script which imports all the affected mailboxes and users

Sorted thank you

Hi

I said sorted and I can do it individually. Could you point me in the right direction for the script to run this for a group of users.

Thanks

Alistair
