    Okay, this is something that I have not seen any help on yet, but it is a problem that I know many people face. My salesman for my company and I use different computers, he uses Outlook and I use Entourage. We keep separate calendars. Is there ANY way for us to be able to have a calendar somewhere that has both of our appointments together so we can set meetings etc. for one another?

    In other words, I want my calendar on my computer and he wants his on his computer, but we both want a calendar that shows both appointments somewhere. Is this possible?

    We use Google Calendar between 7 people. Each has their own and the share with the others. I also Sync them with Outlook.

    The issue here is some of us have OS X v10.5 and v10.4 running Entourage and another user has a PC with outlook. We just want to be able to see everyone's calendar. Is there any good way to do this?

    Unfortunately, MobileMe doesn't allow "shared calendars" like Exchange server. You can publish your calendar, and the other person can subscribe to it, but not edit it. This is a problem for me as well. Huge shortcoming..

    I have managed to share one MobileMe calender with two iPhones, using a main MobileMe account and an email only account. Not sure how it would work with two Mac's. I'll try and keep you posted.

    If you both logged into the same MobileMe account, you would both have access to the same calendar and updates on any machine would be seen on every other machine.

    The same is true of Google Calendar. Just set up a single account and let everyone you want to access it know the login and password.

    Not exactly. I have my calendar on my computer and he has his calendar on his computer. We want to only see what each other has scheduled. We do not want to start syncing all of our calendars together. No one does. That would be too much of a mess. The fix you would think would be to all just use Google calendar, but we are not going to do that. The nice thing about Outlook and Entourage is that it all integrates with email and contacts so sending reminders and invites is easy and seamless. At this point, I cannot find any information on how to sync iCal/Entourage with Google calendar. Outlook yes, but not iSync running on Tiger. I say iSync because at this point I have my Entourage syncing with iCal for mobile me. It shows up on my iPhone then.

    So... at this point, yes, Google calendar is an option, but with no way to sync it up (for free).

    I have a problem.

    I already have an Exchange account on iPhone so using the method that google say on how to setup the calender doesnt work. Can anyone help me set it up?

    I need to share this calender with the other half.

    Thanks

    I use busy sync - works great but it is not free and you need a license for each machine.

    It is a service that uses a google calendar and each user can edit and view the calendar...
