Outlook Online, Calendar, Adding Delegate Permissions

The steps below will demonstrate how to give someone delegate access to one's calendar via Outlook Online (Webmail).

NOTE: This article only shows the process in Outlook Online (Webmail). The steps for the Outlook Desktop app can be found in this article.
