If your department or group is interested in a closed session workshop on Outlook Calendar, please send your request to tlctrainers@ithaca.edu.

Opening a shared calendar in Outlook Web App (myhome.ithaca.edu):

In the Calendar View:
1. Right-click (control-click on a Mac) “People’s Calendars” or "Other Calendars" on the left navigation panel.
2. Select “Open Calendar” from the drop down menu.
3. In the “From Directory” field, enter the name or username of the person whose calendar you’d like to open. (The user must have set permissions to allow you to view their calendar.)
4. Select the correct user from the directory listings that are automatically displayed. (If no results are displayed automatically, check the spelling or click “Search Contacts & Directory.”)
5. Click “Open.”
6. You will now see the user’s calendar displayed and their name will be listed on the left navigation panel.
