This article describes how to create an Organizational Forms Library in a pure Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 organization.
What is an Organizational Forms Library?An Organizational Forms Library is a special type of public folder that is listed only under the NON_IPM_SUBTREE systems folder. You can have only one Organizational Forms Library for each language in an organization. You must publish a form to this library if you want to make the form available to everyone in your organization. For example, publish a form to report vacation time.
You can publish a form to the Organizational Forms Library when you want to use the same custom form in more than one folder. This library is frequently used for e-mail message forms because they are typically not based on a specific folder. When you publish a form, you can maintain only a single published form. Everyone in the organization can access the forms that are published to this library as long as the administrator grants the users permissions to the library.
The library is stored on the Microsoft Exchange Server-based computer. The administrator must give you permissions to publish to the Organizational Forms Library. This permission is typically given to only some individuals or a department that manages the Exchange server-based computer.
Note By default, the Organizational Forms Library is not required for Exchange 2007 to operate correctly. You have to create the Organizational Forms Library only if you must support custom forms that are already developed or if a third-party application requires the library. If neither of these situations applies, you do not need to follow the steps that are described in this article.
