How to create an organizational forms library in Exchange Server 2013

Public Folders are still around in Exchange 2013, and in a greenfield environment you may need to create the Organizational Forms Library.

In Exchange 2010, this procedure involved the following steps:

  • PowerShell cmdlets or use of the Public Folder Management Console to create the Organizational Forms Library
  • Using ExFolders to add the PR_URL_NAME property to the newly created library.
  • Changing the Locale ID using MFCMAPI

The good news is this is significantly simpler in Exchange 2013. We can create the Organizational Forms library directly from the Exchange Management shell.

To create your organizational forms library, use the following cmdlets (after creating your Public Folder Mailbox of course):

New-PublicFolder -Path "\NON_IPM_SUBTREE\EFORMS REGISTRY" -Name "Organizational Forms Library"              Set-PublicFolder "\NON_IPM_SUBTREE\EFORMS REGISTRY\Organizational Forms Library" –EformsLocaleID EN-US

As shown below, you’ll see the following output when executing these cmdlets:


A final note. When choosing the EformesLocaleID, select the appropriate value from the languagecode field TechNet MSDN reference.
