You don’t have permission to create an entry in this folder in Outlook [FIX]

A large number of users have reported seeing the message You don’t have permission to create an entry in this folder when trying to change data inside their Microsoft Outlook software.

The circumstances in which this happens are the following: two profiles using different Microsoft Outlook versions created two Microsoft Exchange Server accounts. A folder is created that can be seen by both users, but only one account has permissions to access it and change the information.

This error is caused by Outlook not being able to delete the stored cache when switching between accounts on the same profile. Because the account without permission tried first to access the folder created earlier, that account has momentary ownership of the folder, so the user with permission will see the same message.

In this article, we will explore the best troubleshooting methods to solve this issue. Read on to find out more.


What to do if you don’t have permission to create an entry in Outlook folder?

1. Clear the Outlook cacheOutlook Logo - you don't have permission to create an entry in this folderOutlook Logo - you don't have permission to create an entry in this folder

  1. Save your work and close the Outlook.
  2. Double-click on the Outlook executable file in order to open it again.
  3. This will clear the cache stored in Outlook.
  4. After the restart, make sure to try and access the folder created first with the account that has access to the resource. This will give that user full ownership of the created folder, so no error will appear.

You don’t have permission to book this resource error [QUICK FIX]

A number of users have reported seeing the error message You don’t have permission to book this resource whenever they try to book a room (or other assets), by using the Outlook Exchange.

This issue is caused by migrating the room mailbox from an on-premises location to the Outlook Exchange Online service. When the move is performed, the permissions of the server need to be assigned again to avoid this issue.

This error message can cause a lot of confusion, as the initial settings of the local room mailbox seem to be in order at first glance. Even though that is the case, these features become inactive for security reasons. This protects the information stored on the servers from any third-party that wants to extract that information.

For these reasons in this article, we will explore several troubleshooting methods to deal with this issue. Please follow the steps described in this guide closely to avoid any other issues.

How to fix You don’t have permission to book this resource error?

1. Assign corresponding permissions of the room mailbox to your Exchange Online account

  1. Log into the Exchange Admin Center with your administrator account.Microsoft Office 365 admin - You don't have permission to book this resourceMicrosoft Office 365 admin - You don't have permission to book this resource
  2. Navigate to Recipient -> Resources.Microsoft Office 365 admin - You don't have permission to book this resourceMicrosoft Office 365 admin - You don't have permission to book this resource
  3. Double-click the room mailbox.
  4. Inside the pop-up window that appears, select Mailbox Delegations.
  5. Add your administrator account inside the Full Access blank space.
  6. Click on the Save button.
  7. Open Room Mailbox again and check to see if the issue persists.

Note: It is recommended that when performing these above steps, you use a private browsing session. Press CTRL+SHIFT+P for Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Internet Explorer. For Google Chrome press CTRL+SHIFT+N.

2. Add your account to Open Room MailboxExchangeOnline - You don't have permission to book this resourceExchangeOnline - You don't have permission to book this resource

  1. Log into your Open Room mailbox account.
  2. Select Options -> Resource Schedule page -> Add your account to the list.
  3. Inside your Outlook (with admin access) -> right-click Calendar -> select Data Properties.
  4. Inside the Permissions tab -> add the users with the appropriate access level -> click Save.Microsoft Office permissions - you don't have permission to book this resourceMicrosoft Office permissions - you don't have permission to book this resource
  5. Try to see if the issue persists.

Another possible reason for this error message could be caused by users trying to book rooms with 1 year before the preset time limit. This information can be checked by going to Portal ->Exchance -> Recipients -> Calendar -> Edit booking options.

In this article we explored a quick fix for the error You don’t have permission to book this resource when trying to reserve a room or other assets on Exchange Online.

Because this issue is caused by porting the data storage from local to cloud, the problem can be fixed by re-allowing the access for each of the users inside your Microsoft Exchange Admin Center.

From PC

User-added image

From PC – attach files stored on your computer to your email message. When you select this option, you will be able to select the files that you wish to attach to this email. Files uploaded from your computer using this method will be uploaded to the File Box on Citrix. If you would like to use different options for this specific email, select Use Custom Settings. After attaching the desired files and composing the email, click Send to send the email. The plugin will upload the files and convert the temporary link to a functioning link in the Outbox. Then Outlook will send the email containing the link to the indicated recipient.

Emails sent using this option will stay in your Outbox longer than normal after you click send because the files must first be uploaded to Citrix.The amount of time this takes will depend on the speed of your Internet connection and the size of the attachments. Please do not close Microsoft Outlook until your upload is complete. Citrix recommends that you do not upload extremely large files (more than 500 MB) through the plugin. You will have better, more reliable results logging into and using the web application for large file uploads. You can then attach these large files using the From Citrix option detailed below.

From Citrix

User-added image

From Citrix – attach files stored in Citrix. Check the boxes to select the files and folders you want to attach to your email. Once you have selected the file and clicked OK, the file will be inserted into the body of your email as a temporary link. If you would like to use different options for this specific email, select Use Custom Settings. After attaching the desired files and composing the email, click Send to send the email. The plugin will convert the temporary link to a functioning link and Outlook will send the email containing the link to the indicated recipient.

From Citrix uses less bandwidth and storage as you are not uploading new data to your account.

Revoke Access from Outlook Message

Once you have shared a file using the Citrix Files for Outlook, you can revoke your recipient’s access to the files from within Microsoft Outlook. To do so, navigate to your Sent Messages in Microsoft Outlook and locate the email you sent your recipient. When viewing that message, locate the Citrix Files for Outlook header at the top of the message. Click the Revoke Access button. Once you confirm, the recipient will no longer be able to access the files via the email message. Revoking access does not prevent your recipient from viewing the file if they have already downloaded it.

After you click Revoke Access, a popup displays. You may click Revoke or Cancel.

User-added image

Request Files

User-added image

Request Files – insert a text link into the body of your email message. Your recipient will be able to click on the generated link and upload a file to your Citrix without downloading any software or signing up for an account. You can customize this automatically generated link in the Options menu.

Uploaded files are sent to your File Box. If you would like to change the upload destination for this specific email message, select Use Custom Settings. Once you have selected Use Custom Settings, you will be presented with a pop-up window that allows you to change the settings for the link. By clicking Edit to the right of Upload file to, you can select a new folder from your Citrix Files account. Any changes made will only affect the link that you are sending in this individual email only.

Convert Attachments

User-added image

Convert Attachments – Convert normal file attachments to a secure Citrix Files link. This option will only appear on a new message and will not be clickable unless there is an existing attachment on the email. After clicking Convert Attachments and composing the desired email, click Send to send the email. The plugin will upload the files and convert the temporary link to a functioning link. Then Outlook will send the email with the link to the indicated recipient.

Distribution Group FAQ

How many users can I add to a Distribution Group?

A distribution group can have a maximum of 2000 users.

I added a user to a folder when they already had access through a Distribution Group. What permissions apply?

The individual user’s access will override that of his/her group. Example: John Doe has Download permissions on a folder due to his membership in the Doe Distribution Group. You add John Doe to the folder manually, and grant him Upload permissions. He will have both Download and Upload permissions, even though his Distribution Group membership does not include Upload.

Generate a Group Membership List

To generate a membership list for your review, access People > Manage Users or Distribution Groups. Click on the group name to access it. Access the Generate Report drop-down menu and choose Export Group List. Once the list is generated, a spreadsheet will be downloaded to your local computer.

Office Activation is broken in an App Layering vDisk in PVS if you version the disk or boot it in Private Mode

This article only applies to App Layering 29.1 and before. In 19.2, the mechanism for getting the correct license changes to make it happen in the ELM, before the image boots. So you no longer need to worry about versioning your published image vDisk when Office is installed.


When you initially publish your vDisk into PVS, Windows and Office activation are successful. However, if you boot the vDisk in Private Mode or add a version to the vDisk in PVS, after you finish and assign the modified disk back to a Standard Mode target machine, Office activation is broken and Windows reports an invalid or missing product key. When you run Office programs, they will attempt to Repair themselves because their product licensing information has been lost.
