According to the following post http://www.liferay.com/web/guest/community/forums/-/message_boards/message/44680 I ask again!

Is it possible in the new Version of Liferay to synchronize a calendar in Outlook with the liferay calendar? I need an automatic update between several calendars in outlook and a shared calendar in liferay.

Please give me a hint!

You might be able to code something using the API and ICS ical files.

I too would be very interested if somebody has found a way to achieve this. I am wanting an Outlook 2003 calendar to be replicated in Liferay, has anybody managed to achieve this?

Bump!

We have multiple 'projects' (communities) within our Liferay installation and they all include a calendar portlet. This is largely useless because it's just duplicated effort keeping it up to date when everyone has their own calendar.

What we need is to be able to associate users with calendar events (at worst, just all of the users associated with that community. At best, a named list of users per event) so that the portlet can send an ICS file attached to a notification email to those users when the corresponding event is added/edited/removed.

At least then, we can treat the portlet as the central calendar for a given project but people have their own calendars on their PC/laptop/phone/etc with all events relating to them as you'd expect.

Liferay does not provide synchronization between calendar servers OOTB. You can only export/import calendars from/to Liferay using ICS format
