We are creating "functional" user in the similar way of creating the resource user.
So, create one functional (e.g. Department1) user and set email for that user (e.g. ).
I am creating email for functional users or resources as alias to existing functional email boxes that won't be removed as part of the staff departure.

Access to that calendar can be granted either by admin user or you login yourself as Department1 users and grant access to specific people.
Ideally, you set mail notifications for that calendar, so you can always trace what happened with the calendar entries (by checking the functional inbox)

Hi folks,

today I was asked how to implement a group or company wide calendar
which is readable by all students and edited by a few coworkers.

This can be done by r/w access rules, but who is publishing the calendar?

AFAIK a caledar can only be published by his owner, but what happens
when that coworker/owner leaves the company and the account is deleted?

O.K. the calender can be copied and imported by an other coworker, but
than the URL to the calender also changes.

That's bad for my point of view, as that way, about 100+ Users have to
change there subscription url ...

Or do I miss something? How do you solve that?

One thought is, to have a "group" or "department" account managing the
special calendars, so the url will stay the same.

Suggestions, hints and thoughts are welcome!

Regards . Götz
