Shared calendar on Vtiger CRM

On Vtiger CRM the Admin have the ability to view "all" calendars, not only his one ("Mine").

A problem can happen if for specific reasons you want a non-admin user to view "all" calendars. Especially if you don't want to give Admin's rights to everybody! It used to be the case in small & medium businesses when the secretary is managing the agenda of more or less everybody in the organization (for example making appointments for outside sales people).

The hability to view each others calendar events, user by user, has no option to view all in one window.

The view all option is available only to admin, but there is a solution to that, on this thread of Vtiger official forum. You have to got to your Vtiger source in the modules\Calendar\CalendarCommon.php file and replace a line with another one. See the above thread for all details.

After that, all the users in your CRM will have the View All option in the Calendar view.

Be sure that the person who shared the calendar and the person to whom the appointment was assigned to, have the same role. If it's not the case, this could may be the reason why the person who shared the calendar can't edit it. People in a lower hierarchy role cannot edit some informations that belongs to someone in a higher hierarchy role.

On the outside, I used some clips to attach a calendar (you can find plenty of lovely free ones like this one online). Since then I've added another CRM software on my computer, and Michel's company helped me a lot to do that.
