Overview video: Introduction to using the calendar in Outlook Web App


Working with Your Calendar

To open your calendar in Outlook Web App, click calendarCalendar in the Navigation Pane. While you're viewing your calendar, you can double-click a meeting or appointment to open it. After you open an item, you can view details or make changes. If you double-click a repeating item, for example, a weekly meeting, you can choose to open the occurrence (the meeting only on the day you selected) or the whole series (every meeting). For more information about how to work with repeating items, see Repeating Items.

To display dates that aren't sequential

  1. In the Day view, locate the first day in the date selector, and then click it.
  2. Press CTRL, and then click up to six additional days from any month or year.

Appointments and Meetings


Repeating Items

  • Appointments, meetings, and tasks may be one time occurrences or may repeat. A repeating item is one that appears in your calendar or tasks list multiple times, based on settings you control. For example, a meeting can be configured to repeat weekly. A task that has to be performed monthly can be configured to repeat on the first Monday of every month.

Sharing a Calendar

You can share access to your calendar with anyone in your shared address book. You may also receive invitations to share other people's calendars, and requests to share your calendar.


Publish a Calendar

Calendar publishing creates a URL that you can give to people so they can view your calendar. You choose how much information to share.
