Sharing Calendars

  • Online

Users can overlay another user's CRM calendar activities with their own calendar activities in My Schedule.  The Calendar Sharing Menu provides the ability to search for all users the logged-in user has access to.

This menu stores the last ten calendars viewed and provides managers with quick access to calendars for users in territories below the manager's territory. The individual activities shared are based on standard object-level security. All shared calendar activities display as read only.

To enable this feature, grant users FLS edit permission to the CALENDAR_SHARE_RECENT_ITEMS_vod field on the Preferences_vod object. Once enabled, the Calendar Sharing Menu icon display in the top right of My Schedule.

User calendar sharing is not based on Role or Territory hierarchies. The Calendar Sharing Menu has a lookup to the User object and access to individual Users is based on standard security to the User object.

Events from shared calendars display with a black border to distinguish the current user's events from events on the shared calendar.

Calendar Sharing is supported for Day, Week and Month view. It is not supported when viewing the Cycle tab.
