DTOO220 - Outlook - Upload method for publishing calendars to Office Online must be restricted.


When users publish their calendar to Microsoft Office Online using the Microsoft Office Outlook Calendar Sharing Service, Outlook updates the calendars online at regular intervals unless they click Advanced and select Single Upload: Updates will not be uploaded from the Published Calendar Settings dialog box. If your organization has policies that govern the use of external resources such as Microsoft Office Online, allowing Outlook to publish calendar updates automatically might violate those policies.


Set the policy value for User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Microsoft Outlook 2010 -> Outlook Options -> Preferences -> Calendar Options -> Office.com Sharing Service 'Restrict upload method' to 'Enabled'.
