Setting calendar permissions

By default, the access permissions are set to allow all users (everyone) to have blind view, view, and schedule access to each individual user's calendar. Also by default, the permissions only allow the owner of the calendar full access.

To change the permissions to allow only certain users or groups of users (aliases) blind view, view, schedule, or full-access permission on your calendar, click on the following fields in the Access Permissions window, and change the permissions as needed.

Blind View
Users with blind view permission can look at your calendar and find out when you have events scheduled, but they cannot see the details of your events.

Users with view permission on your calendar can look at the events that you have scheduled.

Users with schedule permission can add events to your calendar.

Full Access
Users with full-access permission can change and delete existing events on your calendar.
It is important to consider carefully which users you allow to have access to your calendar. Remember that another user cannot schedule an event for you without schedule access to your calendar.

Setting default calendar printouts

To select or deselect printout options, select Printing from the Preferences menu.
