Inviting someone's 'additional calendar' in a meeting request (O'07)

Not open for further replies.
Office manager in my firm has created an additional calendar and given several people author persmissions to it and shared it with us. The purpose of the calendar is to highlight certain events that, though personal to a user, are a big enough deal that we want everyone to be able to see them (we're the sort of office that sometimes sets up public events in our community).
We can open this additional calendar, add appointments, edit & delete only our own events. All good. What would be one step better is to be able to add an event to this calendar simply by adding the name/address to a 'meeting request.' Right now, we can only add the office manager herself---but I don't want to add the event to her primary, personal calendar. Rather, I want to be able to put a name or address in the "To:" line of a meeting request and have it automatically show up on her additional calendar.
We have an IT guy who is sporadically available for our office and is sort of a pain in the arse. A while ago he set up a different calendar in a "Public Folder" (no idea what that is or how to do it) and that calendar can indeed by added as another name in the list of names in a Meeting Request. Must I go the Public Folder route to get the functionality described above?

Yes, you need to use a public folder (or another mailbox) in order to be able to 'invite' the calendar. You can do most of this yourself, right in Outlook (create the folder, give permissions)- someone, either you or the PITA, will need to mail-enable it from the Exchange console. If you have admin access to the admin console, i can probably talk you through it if i know the version of Exchange.
