Steps To Resetting The Office 2011 For Mac Irm Client

By default, your calendar (or a resource calendar) can be subscribed to and provides free/busy information to all other UW-Milwaukee Office 365 users. To change how your calendar is shared, select your Office 365 client from the list below and follow the instructions for that particular client.

There are four basic permission levels that can be chosen for campus-wide calendaring sharing:

  • Sep 09, 2016  In Office 2016 for Mac applications such as Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint, version 15.25, you may experience issues with IRM. This issue only occurs with on-premises RMS servers. If you are using RMS hosted on Office 365 servers and are experiencing an issue with IRM, this is not the same issue, so please contact Microsoft support.
  • In order to use Outlook 2010 with Microsoft Office 365, you must be running the most recent version of Outlook 2010. Please note that this must to be done before moving to Office 365 or before opening Outlook 2010 after moving to Office 365. To ensure you are able to sync your email, make sure Outlook 2010 is up to date. Open Outlook 2010.

After you have configured your Office 365 account in Outlook, you may want to configure your default calendar sharing permissions as well. Note: If you are the owner of a resource and have subscribed to the resource calendar, you can also perform these actions for the resource. Just make sure you have performing these actions as the resource when following these steps.

  1. Start Outlook.
  2. Navigate to your calendar by clicking on the Calendar tab in the lower left hand corner of your Outlook client.


  3. At the calendar screen, select your default calendar, 'Calendar':


  4. Right-click on the calendar and then click on the 'Properties' field. This will open a dialog box that gives you further choices:


  5. Select the 'Permissions' tab at the top of the dialog box that opens. The 'Calendar Properties' screen will be displayed:

    The Default permissions level will be 'Free/Busy time'. When set to this value, this setting allows others to view whether you are free or busy, but does not allow others to see what you are doing during that time, nor with whom you are meeting.

  6. Make sure Default user is selected and use the options within the 'Read' box to change the desired default permissions for your calendar. To fully restrict others from seeing your calendar, set the 'Read' permission level to 'None'. This setting will only restrict them from viewing your availability, they will still be able to invite you to a meeting. If you wish others to have greater access to your calendar, set read permissions to 'Full Details' or 'Free/Busy time, subject, location'.

    Please note the 'Permissions' for the Anonymous user. Anonymous users are users who have not yet migrated to Office 365 or who are entirely outside of the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee system. If you wish to change calendar viewing permissions for these groups, you will need to change these here. Do not delete this account/user.

  7. When you are done setting your permissions, click on 'Apply' and then click on 'OK' to exit the Calendar Properties dialog box.

Calendar access control using Outlook on the Web

  1. Open Outlook on the Web.
  2. Navigate to your Calendar


  3. At the calendar screen, right-click your default calendar, 'Calendar', and select 'Sharing permissions'.

  4. Next to 'My Organization', click on the drop-down menu and select the desired permissions level. This will grant that level of permissions to anyone who opens up your calendar. The default permissions level will be 'Can view when I'm busy'. When set to this value, this setting allows others to view where you are free or busy, but does not allow others to see what you are doing during that time, nor with whom you are meeting.
    *IMPORTANT! If you change the permissions level of 'My Organization' to 'Can edit', this gives EVERYONE who views your calendar the permission to edit the events on your calendar. This is highly NOT RECOMMENDED.


  5. When you are done settings your permissions, click the 'Done' button to close the window.


I think one reason people get frustrated with their computers is that things seem to change without warning. For example, yesterday you could print; today the printer is 'not found.'

Or this: Yesterday Microsoft Word's 'Save As' screen included shortcuts to previously used folders; today it doesn't.

Microsoft office

If that second example sounds awfully specific, it's because it just happened. Last week, without warning or explanation, Microsoft pushed out an Office 365 update that, among other things, made Word 2016 harder to use and introduced a bug in Outlook 2016.

This is how Word looked before:

And here's the unfortunate 'after':

Now, far be it from me to complain about an unwanted, unwarranted interface change that has negatively impacted my productivity, or a bizarre glitch that makes my cursor lag when typing emails. I'm all about solutions, which in this case means rolling Office 365 back to the version that preceded the current one. Thankfully, it's not hard to do, and it solves both problems. Here's the step-by-step:

Step 1: First you need to turn off Automatic Updates so Office doesn't try to update itself again once you've completed the other steps. Fire up Word (though you can use one of the other Office apps if you prefer), then click File > Account. Next, click the Update Options button and choose Disable Updates. Now you can close the program.

Step 2: Now we're going to create a tiny program -- a batch file -- that will 'update' Office 365 to the earlier version, specifically 16.0.6366.2062. To get started, right-click any open area on your desktop, then choose New > Text Document.

Step 3: Name this new document 'Revert' (or 'Rollback' or whatever -- it doesn't really matter), then open the file. Copy and paste in the following text:

cd %programfiles%Common FilesMicrosoft SharedClickToRunofficec2rclient.exe /update user updatetoversion=16.0.6366.2062

Step 4: Click File > Save As (irony!), then be sure to add .bat to the end of the filename. Now click Save as Type and set it to All Files. That's so Notepad doesn't try to save it as a text file.

Step 5: Run your newly created Revert.bat program, then sit back and wait while Office 365 reverts.

I tested this on my system and it worked perfectly. Now Word works the way it used to, and Outlook no longer suffers from cursor-lag. Your mileage may vary, of course, and keep in mind that with Office updates disabled, you won't get security updates that might be important.
