So I have a user whose assistant manages her calendar.When her assistant makes a change or adds anything to her calendar it doesnt show up on hers unless she closes outlook and reopens it.Here's a trick for appointments: If the public folder has an e-mail address, open the Properties dialog for the folder, choose Add to Contacts, you can simply invite a public folder calendar to a meeting.Also, don't forget that for offline use, you can drag any public folder to Public Folders/Favorites and set the Favorites copy to synchronize.Code Two Folder Sync Addin is an Outlook add-in that enables synchronization of folders.The synchronization of data will always take place between selected folders and the user can choose several pairs of folders that need synchronizing. Company Contacts addin gives you access to a powerful shared address book as a replacement for the Microsoft Exchange 'Global Address List'.Add2Exchange is licensed and sold separately for Add2Exchange for Calendars, Add2Exchange for Contacts, & Add2Exchange for Tasks. Add2Outlook (A2O) is a 2-way Outlook calendar, contact and/or task synchronizer for desktops, laptops and mobile devices.
We do have cache mode enabled on all user mailboxes in the organization so that it will allow them to work in outlook right away without it taking so long to load.
Dav Sync is a two-way synchronization tool for users of MS Outlook with Microsoft Exchange.
It is designed to transfer Outlook entries between Local and Shared (Public) Contact, Calendar or Task Folders, so that the contents are available easily in the user's mailbox, and can be synchronized with the user's PDA, Blackberry etc.
It gives you possibilities Exchange Server has never offered: synchronize content of Exchange Public Folders to mobile devices (i Phone, i Pad, Android, Blackberry, etc.), create common company calendars and contact lists, synchronize email, and many more.
The application supports Exchange 2016 / 2013 / 2010 / 2007 / 2003 and is amazingly easy to configure and use.
Other than that, Outlook does not provide any built-in mechanism for syncing between Outlook mailboxes and Public folders, hence the list of tools on this page.
