How to view Free/Busy permissions

To view current Free/Busy permissions, run the following cmdlet:

Get-MailboxFolderPermission <PrimarySMTP>:\Calendar
Note The <PrimarySMTP> placeholder represents the mailbox for which you want to view permissions.

For example, the cmdlet resembles the following:

Get-MailboxFolderPermission user@contoso.com:\Calendar

How to add Free/Busy permissions

To add Free/Busy permissions, run the following cmdlet:

Add-MailboxFolderPermission <PrimarySMTP>:\Calendar –User <UserSMTP> -AccessRights <AccessRights>
Notes
  • The <PrimarySMTP> placeholder represents the mailbox for which you want to change permissions.
  • The <UserSMTP> placeholder represents the user who is granted Free/Busy permissions.
  • The <AccessRights> placeholder represents the user permissions.
  • If you want to make the Free/Busy time viewable for nonspecific users, the AccessRights setting for the default user should be AvailabilityOnly or higher.
For example, the following cmdlet grants otheruser@contoso.com permission to view the calendar for user@contoso.com:

Add-MailboxFolderPermission user@contoso.com:\Calendar –User otheruser@contoso.com -AccessRights AvailabilityOnly

How to remove Free/Busy permissions

To remove Free/Busy permissions, run the following cmdlet:

Remove-MailboxFolderPermission <PrimarySMTP>:\Calendar –User <UserSMTP>
Notes
  • The <PrimarySMTP> placeholder represents the mailbox for which you want to change permissions.
  • The <UserSMTP> placeholder represents the user who is granted Free/Busy permissions.
For example, the following cmdlet revokes permission for otheruser@contoso.com to view the calendar for user@contoso.com: 

Remove-MailboxFolderPermission user@contoso.com:\Calendar –User otheruser@contoso.com
