I am using Exchange 2003 with Outlook 2007 and I am hoping to set up a rule so that any calendar invites sent to another user will go to my inbox and not the users, allowing me to accept/decline the invite which will then update the users' calendar.

Is this possible within Outlook?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

  • So you basically want to force users to accept your meetings? Doesn't sound very ethical if that is the case. – Eric F Oct 10 '14 at 11:32
  • @EricF That is quite an assumption on your part. I don't read the question that way. How does your comment help the community of Super User? – CharlieRB Oct 10 '14 at 14:04
  • That is why I asked. Thanks for your help though Charlie. I am glad to have it – Eric F Oct 10 '14 at 18:09

You are referring to having Delegate access to someone's calendar. This function is available in Outlook, but needs to be setup on each person's account.

A delegate manages someone else's schedule, meetings, and appointments, freely and visibly.

Here is a short course on how to do this - Delegate Access: Let someone else mind your calendar

Delegation involves (at least) two people. We assume that you're taking this course with sharing in mind, and that you have someone in mind to share with. If you can, take this course along with that person. The two of you can do the practices together and experience delegate access in action.
