Belongs to
Adds the calendar to calendar groups.
Any permissions you specify on this form override those inherited from the calendar groups.
Enter or remove calendar groups just as you would address messages.
Item expiry
The number of days an event or task can stay in your calendar before expiring.
The value Default uses the default expiry period for your server.
Do not publish in Directory
Keeps this calendar out of the Directory.
This allows you to name the calendar whatever you want, without worrying about finding a unique name, and prevents users who shouldn't be seeing your calendar from knowing about it.

For resource and location calendars, we recommend that you not select this checkbox. These calendars must be in the Directory to enable people to book them when creating events in other calendars.
We also recommend that you not select this checkbox for your personal calendar.
The names of the users and user groups for whom you want to specify levels of access to the calendar.
Enter a name just as you would address a message. The order in which you list users and groups matters.
To insert a name, select the name above the insertion point, then press Enter/Return. To move a name, select it, then drag it to the desired location in the list. To remove a name, select it, press Delete, then press Tab.
7202010_20004_0.png         Note
This field doesn't control who can see the calendar. If the calendar is located in a container to which everyone listed here has access, they will see the calendar automatically. If a user listed here doesn't have access to the container, you must make that user a member of the calendar.
Choose the access level for each user and group you entered at "Who".
Customize the individual permissions for this access level, if required.

Order in the "Who" field
You must list users and user groups in the "Who" field in the correct order, to make their permissions work as you want. Make sure you are familiar with the access levels available, before deciding on the order in which to enter your users and groups.
When a user tries to access the calendar, FirstClass checks the "Who" list from the top. When it finds the first occurrence of the user or a group to which the user belongs, it uses that access level for the user. This means that if the first thing you list is the All Users group, and make the access level for this group No Access, no one will be able to access the calendar.

Access levels
Access levels are predefined sets of individual permissions. You can assign an access level as is, or customize it by selecting and clearing individual permissions.

No Access
Can't view the calendar or add items to it.
See Times
Can view the calendar, but only see the times set aside for events and tasks.
Can't add events to the calendar (events are sent to participants' Mailboxes).
Schedule Only
Can add events to the calendar indirectly.
An event is added to a calendar indirectly when a user creates an event in another calendar and invites the calendar owner (in the case of location and resource calendars, books this location or resource).
Can look at the calendar (times only) and add events indirectly.
Can see popup details on the calendar and add events indirectly.
Can't open calendar items or add events directly (they go into the sender's personal calendar instead).
Has all previous permissions, and can open calendar items, edit and delete items, download attachments, and view item history.
7202010_20004_0.png        Note
Events created indirectly remain uneditable.
Can add events directly (they don't go into the sender's personal calendar).
Access is defined by the individual permissions which are selected.
If you customize another access level, it automatically becomes the Custom access level.

Individual permissions
The icons in the "Permissions" column represent individual permissions. These icons are toggles. To see what each permission icon means, display its tooltip.
7202010_20004_0.png        Note
Certain permissions only work if the administrator has given the user privileges to perform associated tasks. If a user can't do something in your calendar, and you gave that user permission, tell the user to contact the administrator.
These are the individual permissions you can assign:

Edit permissions
Can edit this Permissions form.
This includes adding users and groups at "Who" and making them members of the calendar.
2102006_35208_0.png Doesn't apply to calendars.
Delete any item
Can delete any item, including items added by others.
Create items
Can create events and tasks directly in the calendar, and move items into the calendar.
Edit read-only items
Can edit items that are not normally editable (items added by others). Events created indirectly remain uneditable.
2102006_35208_0.png For this permission to work:
•       you must be a subadministrator
•       the Edit items permission must also be selected.
Be cautious about selecting the Edit read-only items permission, because it overrides normal FirstClass operation.
Edit items
Can edit any normally editable event or task.
An event is editable if it was created in a public calendar that has this permission turned on.
An event in a public calendar isn't editable by others, even with this permission turned on, if it was created in a personal calendar and the public calendar is a participant.
Save window and view properties
Can change the default position, size, and view properties of the calendar window.
A user with this permission is dictating the default calendar view for other users.

Search items

Add participants

2102006_35208_0.png For this permission to work, the Create items permission must also be selected.
For resource and location calendars, users without this permission must update the calendar by booking the resource or location when creating an event in another calendar.
If a user doesn't have this permission for your personal calendar, events to which they invite you will appear in your Mailbox.
