    Is it possible for group schedules to be available to all users? If the server guys created a group schedule could this be available in all outlook accounts rather than each person create their own?

    Thanks

    If you're on Exchange Server, you can create a group schedule in a public folder (of type calendar); it will be available to all users who have access to the public folder.

    Our tech guys have said that Microsoft are pushing people away from using public folders and might not be suported in the future.

    That's a pity. I don't think there currently is another way to share group schedules in Outlook between people.

    There are third-party tools for group calendars etc.: Maintaining a Group Calendar in Outlook without Exchange.

    You may want to have your tech guys read You Had Me At EHLO... : Updated Exchange Public Folder Guidance. They are going to be around for quite a while. As mentioned in the article SharePoint may be a better way to go.,
