Calendar Delegation enables you to grant permission to an employee for handling meeting requests on behalf of another employee through the Calendar screen.

When configuring Calendar Delegation, you must determine a delegate and a delegator. The delegator is the original calendar owner. The delegate is the user added to manage the calendar. For example, an executive is the delegator and the executive assistant is the delegate.

As a delegate, users can:
  • Add a delegated calendar and manage the calendar of the delegator.
  • Receive and respond to meeting requests on behalf of the delegator.
As a delegator, you can use the desktop version of Outlook to grant the following permission levels to your delegates:
  • Reviewer – Grants your delegates read-only permission for items in your calendar.
  • Editor - Grants your delegates read, create, and modify permissions for items in your calendar.
Note: Workspace ONE Boxer supports only a full calendar delegation. It does not support the sharing of individual subfolders. For example, you cannot share individual subfolders such as a calendar or a mailbox folder using your Outlook desktop application. To configure delegation, you must use the Exchange admin center.

Email classification is a supported feature in shared and delegated accounts.

Limitations:

  • Workspace ONE Boxer does not support the delegation of Contacts, Tasks, and Notes.
  • Delegates cannot access the delegator's private events unless the delegator provides access.
  • As per the limitation of EAS protocol, delegates cannot modify attachments in an exception of a recurring event.
  • Delegator can add only five delegates.
