2. Managing a calendar that has been delegated to you

If you are responsible for managing another user's calendar, the easiest way to do this is to open their calendar in a new iCal window. You can do this as follows:

From the iCal menu click [Window] and in the drop down menu that appears you will see an entry for each account that has been delegated to you. In this example you can see that the Ian Test account that we configured earlier appears in the drop down menu:

Click the name of the delegated account that you wish to manage, in this example [Ian Test], and this will bring up a new iCal window for that account.

Now you can create and edit calendar items, and view all existing entries in a grid within this new iCal window just like your own calendar. When you create a meeting request by double-clicking on a date in their calendar, iCal sends the invitation exactly as if it had come from that user's account. If the user has also delegated their tasks to your account you can also assign and manage tasks within this calendar by adding and managing To Do items in exactly the same way as you would within your own calendar.
