Thanks, I will look at that.
I also found an app called "Lookee-Loo" for this purpose, but the interface is apparently not great. And it requires Exchange 2007; my mother's office is still on Exchange 2003.
There also was an app called iExchange Calendar at one time but it was removed.
I have to say I am surprised that it is so difficult to figure this out...seems like a large user base has shared calendars in Exchange.
Well, a large user base, yes. But...
I know that at least here in Germany the majority of corporations uses Exchange, some banks and and a few other larger entities have Notes. I'd say the ratio is about 90/10. Those corporate users use shared calendars. But the iPad in corporations has not yet arrived. Security and other issues prevent a widespread usage here, although a lot of companies are test driving it.
And then we have SME which use Exchange and maybe not so much shared calendars, I guess.
And then, iOS Mail is something like a competitor to Microsofts Exchange.
I would love to see ports of MS Office (Excel, Word, PPT, Access and Outlook) to iOS. OneNote is quite good. But still we have to wait.
Thanks for Lookee-Loo. I will have a look at it.
I don't know how to allow her to look at her boss's calendar via the calendar app but I do know how I see my boss's: by using Outlook Web Access. I do have rights to see my boss's calendar in Exchange, so I simply login to OWA from the iPad (in Safari) and I can see her calendar.
Not sure if OWA is turned on at your mother's workplace, but if it is, this is a reasonable workaround.
Thanks for this info! I don't think my mom knows but I will have her ask her IT guy. This would be reasonable workaround.

I am not 100% sure but I think iOS Mail works with OWA when connecting to an Exchange Server.
So, this workaround for your mom should work.
You can test it and log into your mother's account via Outllok web access as ssarmazi described.
