I have a user that want to share calendars that she has created and appear in her "My Calendars" section of the client.  She wants to share these out to other staff but gets and error when she tries to: "Policy does not allow permissions at this level."

Looking at the Properties of the calendars it looks as if the people she wants to share with are already included in sort of group with the permissions she wants.

Please see attached screen shot.  Sorry it is so small but by zooming in I thing you'll get a clear enough idea of what I am getting at.

Any ideas are welome.

Is this on premises or 365..?

Can you ensure that when sharing your are selecting from the Global Catalog?


Is this the error you are getting?  "Policy does not allow granting permissions at this level to one or more of the recipient(s). Please select another permission level and send the sharing invite again."

Tim,

Thank you for your reply.

We are using Office 365

When sharing, the default is our Offline Global Address List - Work

The error you present looks correct

John, 

I need to find the Microsoft Post I read.  They said - may be old and fixed since then - that you cannot do this with 365.  Let me get extra eyes on this too...

Sometimes the permissions just don't want to work.

Try assigning the permissions with powershell
http://blogs.technet.com/b/catastrophic_failure_joannav/archive/2013/06/17/share-calendar-with-powershell-office-365.aspx

Or try through Outlook Web App or whatever it's called now.

I would love if we could expand this.

I've been using O365 for about four years and sharing calendars is STILL an area when things just decide not to work now and then.  And the horrible CLIENT support -- no one talks about how calendar sharing is all nice and all, but most mobile calendar clients can't support it, and lack the cojones to warn you.

Hi,
Could you take a walk through this link:

https://support.office.com/en-za/article/sharing-your-calendar-in-outlook-web-app-7ecef8ae-139c-40d9-bae2-a23977ee58d5

That will check whether you can share through OWA.

Then check out the following:
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj916673(v=exchg.150).aspx

Talks about the sharing policies which define what sharing levels are allowed.

And then for general awareness: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj916670(v=exchg.150).aspx

Let us know how you get on.
Cheers
Nathan

My own experience for multiple customers reflects Marks.
Generally best solution we found is delete all shared permissions with powershell.
Wait at least 30 minutes.
Check share permissions are default (no one else added)
Add permissions using Powershell.
Will check out Nathan links and probably find a customer to try it on in a few days.

That said, a major portion may just be that my expectations may be too high.

Say I've got an O365 domain "minasi.com" with six users.
I want to collaborate with my buddy McGlynn's wobbble.ie for a couple of months.  Maybe he's got someone on staff who could fill in assistance-wise and needs full access to my calendar in Outlook rather than some "oh, he's out of your domain so you can publish static HTML web pages for a month or two and give her access to that.  Or perhaps I'd like McGlynn to watch my Exchange server for those months by just extending Admin juice to his wobble.ie org over our federation?   No go.It seems that O365 has no federation, just Klingons.  

Well, maybe we could make it happen if I had a kind of ADFS As A Service, three-click federation of the two domain?  No go again.  It seems that O365 has no federation, just Klingons.

Well, okay, then, could I just give a member of my domain full control of my calendar?  Sure, if I have full-blow fat Outlook Desktop on my fat PC.  Or I could log onto portal.office.com and wander around OWA, that gets me there sometimes.  OK, so I get that done, and fire up virtually every iPad / phone / not-a-fat-PC Exchange mail client and she can't see my calendars.  And better yet, even when I DO make it work, in six months it just stops working.  

It's so frustrating to know that the NSA's reading my calendar but my poor girlfriend can't. [smile]

Far too high Mark... after all really it's just Exchange in the background!... My guess is as more of the apps that Microsoft bought get properly integrated them maybe there is a better solutions for this type of ad-hoc sharing. Hopefully!

You just googlified Office 365.

With regard the admin juice...
You can have delegated admin where our company can get added to your O365 portal and manage your users etc.
Minasi.com appears in our partner portal and we can do all the work for you.

Actual shares like the dream....Nathan probably has a better view than most.

It appears there is a disconnect between the web and full client.  When "share this folder" requests are sent from the web client, the intended person can accept the shared calendar through the full client.  A work around, not a fix, at best.
