Delegate Access: Let someone else mind your busyness

Callouts indicate where the user sets Calendar and Inbox permissions in Delegate Permissions dialog box.

Callout 1 If you selected this check box, your delegate would be able to accept meeting requests on your behalf from his or her own Inbox.
Callout 2 If you didn't select the check box, you'd need to grant your delegate Author or Editor permissions for your Inbox.

You would also need to grant your delegate permission to receive the e-mail messages that are used to schedule meetings.

Either of two settings in the Delegate Permissions dialog box would make that happen:

Delegate receives copies of meeting-related messages sent to me

If you selected this check box, your delegate would receive your meeting requests directly, in his or her own Inbox. (You'd get them too.) You would not need to allow any other access to your Inbox.

Inbox permissions

If your delegate is also a delegate for a number of other people, receiving all those meeting requests directly may not be convenient. The delegate may find it easier to deal with each person's Inbox separately. To make that possible, you'd need to grant permissions for your Inbox. Again, Editor permissions give your delegate the ability to create, modify, or delete any item in the Inbox.

In this arrangement, your delegate would open your Inbox from his or her own computer, in order to manage your schedule. The steps to do this are in the Quick Reference Card at the end of this course.

Or, if you wanted, you could grant your delegate permission in both ways. No one can stop you!
