Problem Our company needs a solution to manage several organization-wide calendars. We need to control permissions on these calendars based on individual users or groups of users. Permissions are relatively simple and match the SharePoint Owner / Member / Viewer default groups.
Potential Solutions / Research After reviewing potential solutions here, it seems like SharePoint calendars would be a good fit for what we are trying to do.
The one limitation being that users have to manually connect SharePoint calendars to their Outlook. We've used SharePoint calendars before and found that users do not use them unless they can update/view them in Outlook.
I'd like to roll these calendars out to groups of user's automatically instead of training them to use "Connect to Outlook". I've done some initial research and found most of the articles on this topic are from 2016 or earlier. The latest post I found was on SpiceWorks here.
Question I wanted to make sure I'm using the right tool for the right job. Are there better ways to maintain organization-wide calendars with custom permissions?
