We’re looking for recommendation on what mobile apps will work in providing not only view, but, editing and modifying  of shared Exchange calendars to which they have been given delegated access.  

 

Our Exchange servers are behind TMG/CAS servers and is not a straight connection from a client to the Exchange servers themselves.  The calendar is accessed by 3 individuals using iCal as their local client on the desktop.

 

We have used Lookeeloo app but that is only a read-only view.

 

We’ve tried Colup from Skyfillers, but that app errors out when launching any of the shared calendar and the vendor hasn’t been able to resolve the issues.

 

Any and all info is greatly appreciated.


Thank you,

-jack

IT will never ask you for your password or passphrase. If you receive e-mail asking for your password or passphrase, NEVER give it out.

We try to get folks to use an RDP client to our terminal server so they can use Outlook.   Not great on a 3” phone screen but it works fairly well on an iPad.  I’ve had good luck with Pocket Cloud.

 

We’ve also had some luck with Outlook Web Access which lets you open another user’s account once you’ve logged into your own.  I’m not 100% sure that it works with delegation, as opposed to full-access/send-as, but it might be worth a try.

Thanks Chris for your reply.

 

Our users prefer to use a ‘client’ right on the device and the ones we are trying to find a solution, do not have an ipad (iPhone).   Plus when trying it via OWA, it logs you in as OWA light so you can’t view ‘shared’ deleted calendars.

 

A RDP solution is nice, but, it’ll require VPN first from the mobile device.  It’s a multi-step process which with the group in question, is trying to avoid J.

Jump desktop may allow you to get around the VPN and have an rdp connection. It does cost some money so check the website. Sent from my iPhone

Thanks George. Unfortunately, our Security group has our firewall enabled very tight. Only way to get onto campus is via VPN when needing to use a jump station or any sort of RDP client. -jack -----Original Message----- From: The EDUCAUSE IT Support Services Constituent Group Listserv [mailto:ITSUPPORTSERVICES@LISTSERV.EDUCAUSE.EDU] On Behalf Of Rollins, George B.
