Protecting Your File with a Password

To protect calendar files with a password, use the File Properties controls (which can be accessed by selecting Collection Properties from the File menu). Two levels of protection are available: Password and Password (read only). Password gives read and write permission, and Password (read only) gives permission to view the calendar file, but not to modify it.

To protect a file using a password:

  • Select Collection Properties under the File menu. Enter a password at the level of permission you wish to control, and click OK. Re-enter the password when prompted and click OK. The file is now password protected.

Note: It is recommended that only one person at a time be responsible for making modifications to the event file. This ensures that every person who shares the file receives the current modifications.
