Share calendars in Outlook.com

You can share your calendars in Outlook.com with family, friends, and associates so they can see your schedule and even add events. Each calendar can be shared separately.

There are two ways to share your calendars. You can Share with people you choose who have a Microsoftaccount, or Get a link and send it to anyone you want to share your calendar with.

Share with people you choose

You can share your calendars with other people who have a Microsoft account, which is the email address and password used to sign in to services like Outlook.com, SkyDrive, Windows Phone, or Xbox LIVE.

You can create multiple permissions lists. For each list, you can choose from a wide range of access levels, from co-owner to edit to view-only. You can add or remove people from any of your lists at any time.

The people you share the calendar with will get an email invitation they can click to sign in and see the calendar. They can be on any email service, and can use their email address to sign up for a free Microsoft account.

Here’s how to share with people you choose:

  1.  In Calendar, click Share, and then click the name of the calendar you want to share.
  2. Click Share with people you choose.
  3. Click the To box and enter the email address for someone you want to share with.
  4. Repeat Step 3 to add any other people with whom you want to share the same level of access.
  5.  Select the level of access from the dropdown.
  6. Click Share.
