Hi

How to create public folder with calendar and permissions

https://www.quadrotech-it.com/blog/create-a-company-shared-calendar-in-office-365/

AFAIK this will only be available in Outlook, not OWA or on mobile.

Hope that helps and answers your question!

Yes as the article shows you can create more than one calendar.

To setup public folders you have to first create the PF mailbox inside the Exchange Admin Centre.

From your mails, maybe also consider a shared mailbox or a resource mailbox for the shared calendar, then you could easily copy items in Outlook via list view, or send a copy to the shared calendar when booking meetings.

I think you might be missing the point behind using PFs. When you create a PF, you designate a type for it, such as Calendar. Once created, you can use it pretty much like any other calendar, and yes it will inherit permissions from the parent. As this is still technically a "folder", you can have multiple other calendars "nested" within it.

 

The PF mailbox is sort of a "database" for Public folders - you need to create one before you can start using them, but there is no need to create new mailbox for new Public folder, unless you have some specific requirements.
