2.2. Scheduling Inbox Collection
A scheduling Inbox collection contains copies of incoming scheduling messages. These can be requests sent by an "Organizer", or replies sent by an "Attendee" in response to a request. The scheduling Inbox collection is also used to manage scheduling privileges.
A scheduling Inbox collection MUST report the DAV:collection and CALDAV:schedule-inbox XML elements in the value of the DAV: resourcetype property. The element type declaration for CALDAV: schedule-inbox is
Scheduling Inbox collections MUST only contain calendar object resources that obey the restrictions specified in iTIP [RFC5546]. Consequently, scheduling Inbox collections MUST NOT contain any types of collection resources. Restrictions defined in Section 4.1 of CalDAV "calendar-access" [RFC4791] on calendar object resources contained in calendar collections (e.g., Unique Identifier ("UID") uniqueness) do not apply to calendar object resources contained in a scheduling Inbox collection. Thus, multiple calendar object resources contained in a scheduling Inbox collection can have the same "UID" property value (i.e., multiple scheduling messages for the same calendar component).
A scheduling Inbox collection MUST NOT be a child (at any depth) of a calendar collection resource.
The following WebDAV properties specified in CalDAV "calendar-access" [RFC4791] MAY also be defined on scheduling Inbox collections and apply to scheduling messages delivered to the collection:
The following WebDAV property is defined on principal resources and used to locate the corresponding Inbox collection for the associated principal.

Need to test your iCalendar feeds? The iCalendar Validator provides developers and testers a method to validate their iCalendar feeds, which can take data from either a URL, file or text snippet and compare it against the RFC 5545 specification. We believe we have one of the best iCalendar validation tools available on the internet. More information about the validator can be found here.
