If you’re wondering why you’re seeing the light version of Outlook Web App, how to get back to the standard version of Outlook Web app or to Office, or how to use a different email program on a mobile device or computer, see Outlook Web App Light.

The light version of Outlook Web App has fewer features for managing your calendar than the standard version of Outlook Web App. See the comparison tables for details. For example, you can’t do the following tasks in the the light version:

  • Set reminder notifications for meetings and appointments.

  • View or print a week or month view of your calendar.

  • Change the color or layout of your calendar.

  • Share a calendar with others.

  • Open a calendar someone has shared with you.

To get to the Calendar options page from the main Outlook Web App page, go to the upper corner and choose Options, then choose Calendar from the list in the navigation pane.

After you change the settings on this page, click Save to apply your changes.
