There is a problem being currently being experienced by other users whom we share a public calendar in Exchange 2010. I happen to have all the owner rights to this calendar. The other user’s access their Exchange accounts via OWA. However the users are unable to set a reminder since the check-box for this purpose is disabled and after they complained I went to correct this situation but I was shocked to find the check–box grayed although I managed to add a new event and check the reminder box which was functional as I confirmed it later when I went into my outlook. The other users have no problem creating and editing their events /appointments in the calendar. My question is how do I enable these users accessing the exchange accounts via OWA to set reminders if possible?
How do I enable users access exchange2010 using OWA?
Hi! In order to add reminder capability to your users, you can use the Set-OwaVirtualDirectory cmdlet to change the properties of users in a Microsoft Office Outlook Web App. This is the syntax for that:
Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -Identity <VirtualDirectoryIdParameter>
[-RemindersAndNotificationsEnabled <$true | $false>]
Just set the RemindersAndNotificationsEnabled to true. For the identity parameter, you need to specify the name of the Microsoft Outlook Web Application directory. There are other settings that you can enable or disable in OWA. For more information regarding this, as well as other settings that you can enable in Microsoft Outlook Web Application , please click on the link:
Cheers! I hope that helps you out!
