Opening a Shared Calendar in Outlook

Users are able to send a copy of their shared calendar as an attachment of an e-mail. When another Microsoft Outlook user grants you permission to their calendar, you can open it in Outlook. If you do not have permission, a permission request e-mail message is sent to the other person. To learn how to share a calendar with someone, visit this page
