One Exchange Calendar synced between two different Exchange Servers

By Vern Weitzman

A Microsoft partner asked us for a specific Outlook calendar solution for an executive. The exec moved up the ranks to work part time at the HQ for a multinational conglomerate.  For the foreseeable future, she was going to be using a mailbox at both Organizations.

Her calendar was a different story.  Three people were going to continue managing her calendar. However, dozens needed view access at both organizations.

When there is literally a team of assistants that manage your calendar, It is likely filled for 12 months in advance with a full days schedule.  There are thousands of appointments and dozens of changes each day.

We have recently added an Outlook Calendar connector that can reach into remote Exchange Servers.  You create this like you create an ordinary Calendar Distribution List except that the source lives in a different Exchange Organization.

Create Remote Calendar Distribution List

Once you choose the Remote Exchange Calendar, you will be able to define the remote Exchange Server.

Note that the remote organization can be Exchange on-premise, or even an Office 365 tenant.
