Add a Shared Calendar to Outlook on the Web: Overview

            You can add a shared calendar to Outlook on the Web if you receive an invitation from someone else to share their calendar. The easiest way to add a shared calendar to Outlook on the Web is to click the link in the email you received inviting you to share the calendar.

            You can also add a shared calendar to Outlook on the Web within the Calendar App. Right-click on “Other calendars” and select the “Open calendar” command. A popup box will appear with two lines for text entry.

            If you are adding a calendar from someone within your company, type their name in the “From directory:” field. This acts like the “To:” field in an email message. When the person who is sharing their calendar appears, click their name. Then click “Open” to add their calendar to your Calendar view.

            If you are adding a calendar from someone outside your company, type the URL for the calendar into the “Internet calendar” box. Click “Open” to add the calendar to your Calendar view. Generally, internet calendar URLs end in an .ics extension. If you know the URL you are typing is correct, but the calendar will not load, click “Cancel.” Then try to load the calendar again. Sometimes you need to change “http://” to “https://”.

            To remove a shared calendar from Outlook on the Web, right-click the calendar. Then click “Remove” to remove it from the Calendar App.
