Open a Shared Calendar (Windows)

Other calendars, including room resources, other individuals, calendars from the internet, and Shared calendars, can all be added to your Outlook client to view alongside your own calendar.

  1. In Calendar view, click Open Calendar in the ribbon.
  2. Select the type of calendar you wish to add. 
    • Address Book will list all calendars in the Global Address List (GAL)
    • Room List will list all room resources
    • Open Shared Calendar provides a field to enter the name of a calendar shared with you. The calendar owner must first give you permission to view the calendar before you can add it.
      Here is a picture showing where the From Room List... option is located. It is located below from Address Book and above from Internet.
  3. Add the calendar you want. If using the Global Address List, search for the name of the calendar you want, double click the name in the list, then click OK. The Calendar should now show up under My Calendars.
     Here is a picture showing the calendar view once you have added the desired room calendar to your Outlook. On the left panel, you should check the room calendar under rooms. With this checked, you will see the two calendars side by side in the main view of the window.

In the Navigation Pane, under Shared Calendars you should now see an additional calendar with the person's name.
