How do I share my calendar?

To share your calendar, start by going to Calendar in Outlook Web App.

  1. At the top of the calendar view, select Share.

  2. Type the name or email address of the person you want to share your calendar with in the Share with box. This box works just like the To box in an email message. You can add more than one person to share your calendar with.

  3. After you’ve added who you want to share your calendar with, select how much information you want them to see. Full details will show the time, subject, location, and other details of all items in your calendar. Limited details will show the time, subject, and location, but no other information. Availability only will show only the time of items on your calendar.

  4. You can edit the Subject if you want.

  5. By default, your primary calendar will be shared. If you have created other calendars, you can select one of them to share instead.

  6. After you’ve finished adding people to share with, setting their access levels, and choosing which calendar to share with them, select Send. If you decide not to share your calendar right now, select Discard.

Each person will receive an email message telling them that you’ve shared your calendar with them. There will be two links on the invitation – one they can use to add your calendar to their calendar view, and another to share their calendar with you.

Note:  Calendar items marked Private are always protected. Anyone you share your calendar with will see only the time of items marked Private, and not the subject, location, or other details.

Now that I’ve shared a calendar, can I unshare it?

You can change the permissions you’ve set for a calendar, or revoke them completely, by going to the calendar navigation pane at the side and using the context menu for the calendar name under My calendars.

  1. Right-click the calendar you want to unshare. Or, if you’re using a touch device, touch and hold the calendar name.

  2. Select Permissions.

  3. To stop sharing your calendar with a person, find the person you want to change permissions for and either choose a new level of permissions or select the delete icon discard to remove their permissions.

  4. Select Save to save your changes, or Cancel to undo them.

  1. How do I add another person’s calendar to my calendar view?

If you’ve received an invitation to share someone else’s calendar, you can select the link in the invitation to add their calendar to your calendar view.

You can also go your Calendar to add other people’s calendars to your view.

  1. Right-click in the navigation pane where you see Other calendars. Or, touch and hold if you’re using a touch device.

  2. Select Open calendar.

  3. To add a calendar that belongs to someone in your organization, enter their name in From directory. This box works just like the To box on a new email message. After you’ve entered the name, select Open to add the calendar.

After you’ve added another calendar, you can select it to add it to or remove it from your calendar view, or use the context menu to rename it, change its color, or delete it from your view.

What else do I need to know?

  • Calendar sharing doesn’t give anyone the ability to edit your calendar, only to view it.

  • If you try to add another person’s calendar and are sure the URL is correct, but aren’t seeing any information, try removing the calendar and adding it again, changing the http to https.
