Disable permanently Outlook Team Calendar

Outlook 2010 introduced new future called “Team Calendar”. This future might be annoying or not acceptable in certain cases and un-ticking check mark to make it not seen might not be sufficient enough. If so and you are wondering how to disable this here is the solution.

Team Calendars , star popping up from people outlook. –Reason: the
AD Attribute called “Manager” is populated see picture
When manager is listed for given user,  outlook is automatically creating calendar in this format  Team: Name of the manager Calendar inside peoples outlook see picture

Fire up reg edit on the problem workstation…..Drill down to fallowing directory

  • [HKEY_CURRENT_USER

  • 14.0
  • Outlook
  • Options

Create reg key if one does not exist “Value disablereportinglinegroupcalendar”

  • This policy setting prevents Reporting Line Group Calendar from appearing in the navigation pane.
    If you enable this policy setting, Reporting Line Group Calendar will not appear in the navigation pane.
    If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, My Reporting Line Group
    Calendar will appear in the navigation pane.

Hello everyone!

Could anyone confirm whether or not Team Calendar is only available in Outlook 2010 when used in conjunction with Exchange 2010 ?

Thanks in advance,
Alex

It is also available with Exchange 2007. (Outlook 2010 & Exchange 2007 shows teamcalendars)

We're seeing unwanted team calendars in Outlook 2010/Exchange 2010 SP2. I'm not finding Wunderbar in the registry--not in the directory indicated, nor with a full registry search. I'd really like to disable these team calendars. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

Create one Wunderbar in the registry. then export the file as .reg and deploy the .reg file.
