SPPS 2003 - Outlook

  Asked By: Josiah    Date: Feb 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1017

We just did an evaluation of TaskSync fom MicroLinkLLc www.microlinkllc.com/.../TaskSync.htm and found it fits the needs of our organization well. The product alllows for publishing Calendar Events and Tasks from Outlook to Event and Task list on SharePoint Portal Server Portals and WSS Team sites. Once items have been published, changes made to items in either location (SPPS or Outlook) are updated and synchronized via a Sync button on the Calendar or Tasks menus in Outlook.

Does anyone know of another way to incorporate a public outlook
calendar with Events or Tasks? We have a public outlook  calendar for
our team and I just want to display it on our WSS Team site.

Here's what I've tried thus far.
I went to my mysite and exported my mycalendar.dwp. Then I imported it
to my team page (PS&I Team Central (WSS Team Site)). Then I modified
the settings to point to the "\PS&I\Project Calendar" Exchange Folder.
Unfortunately I don't think there is a proper "mailbox" for this
calendar. So I cannot get the calendar to display...

Did you look at my latest blog post?

I talk about how to do this using a CEWP (requires that every client
have Outlook).

Answer #5    Answered By: Gwendolyn Acosta     Answered On: Feb 02

ok, but I don't want my personal calendar. I want a calendar in a
public folder of Outlook.

Answer #6    Answered By: Kyle Hernandez     Answered On: Feb 02

Read closer, you can display ANY Outlook folder.

Answer #7    Answered By: Kedar Phule     Answered On: Feb 02

Maybe I should have my eyes checked. I don't see anywhere to change
which calendar it looks at?

Answer #8    Answered By: Chanel Gaines     Answered On: Feb 02

Add the following code to a CEWP to display a Public Folder:

<OBJECT classid="CLSID:0006F063-0000-0000-C000-000000000046"
<param name="Folder" value="\\Public Folders\All Public

Replace the [FolderName] with the name of the public folder that you
want to show.

Answer #9    Answered By: Timmy Whitney     Answered On: Feb 02

Would this be added under the "Source Editor..." section of the CEWP.
I've added this code there but the CEWP is empty.

Answer #10    Answered By: Harihar Sonnad     Answered On: Feb 02

Yes, it would be added under the "Source Editor..." section. The Web Part will
display empty if you do not provide a valid public folder name.

Do I take out the previously existing OBJECT ID stuff?

<OBJECT id="MyOutlookCalendar"
<param name="Folder" value="Calendar">

and replace it with the code you submitted (with the correct folder

Because when I did it was just blank. When I leave it in (have both
Object IDs) it just shows my personal calendar.

Answer #12    Answered By: Latisha Schneider     Answered On: Feb 02

The OBJECT classid, param name, and value must all be kept syntactically
just like they are (not sure you need the id but I don't think it will
hurt either).

In the code that you have below, simply replace the string "Calendar"
"\\Public Folders\All Public Folders\[FolderName]"

Make sure to replace the [FolderName] with the name of the public folder
that you want to show. So, the entire contents of the CEWP to show a
public folder called Todd would be as follows:

<OBJECT id="MyToddPublicFolder"
<param name="Folder" value="\\Public Folders\All Public Folders\Todd">

Ack, it must have just been a char in the wrong place or some

Answer #14    Answered By: Corina Duran     Answered On: Feb 02

Great. You DO have to be connected to the network so that Outlook can be
used as the conduit to the data. If Outlook cannot "see" the data, the
Web Part will render as empty (or may eventually time out, I just didn't

I am revisitng this for another dept. And this calendar keeps
defaulting to the Today's Date view.
Is there a way to set this to default to the month view.
Here is the code I ganked:
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
function genNewAppointment()
var o = document.getElementById('MyOutlookCalendar');
if (o)
window.status = e.Message;

<input type="button" id="cmdNewAppointment" value="New Appointment"
NAME="cmdNewAppointment" OnClick="genNewAppointment();">

<OBJECT id="MyOutlookCalendar"
width="100%" height="500px">
<param name="Folder" value="\\Public Folders\All Public
Folders\HMC\CountyCare Fitness Schedule">

If you want to host a public calendar in SharePoint, the main change that you’ll need to make is that the R/W calendar will be in SharePoint, not Outlook. Otherwise, it should be very doable.

Answer #17    Answered By: Kristie Hardy     Answered On: Feb 02

It is in the configuration of the web part. You need to tell it which mailbox to look at. Initially it doesn't display any mailbox.
