Overview of How to Open a Group Calendar in Outlook

            To open a group calendar in Outlook, select the name of the group in the Folder Pane in Outlook. Then click the “Calendar” button in the “Group Name” button group (where “Group Name” is the name of your Group) that appears on the “Home” tab of the Ribbon in Outlook.

            Doing this then opens a separate calendar window in Outlook that shows the events for the group. This calendar window is the same as the regular calendar window. However, you will also see any group appointments, events or meetings that are created. Note that all your groups and personal calendars appear at the left side of the calendar under “My Calendars” and “All Group Calendars.” You can check or uncheck the checkboxes here to show or hide the desired calendars in Outlook.
