Office 365, Email, Exchange, Sharing Your or Non-person calendar via Outlook Web Access (OWA)

How to use the Outlook Web App to Change, Add, or Grant permissions to your Exchange Calendar, or non-person calendar you own.

In OWA - you can view someone else's calendar and/or share your own. There are some, but very few limitations when using OWA.

To see someone else's calendar:

1. Log in to the Outlook Web App:
2. Click on the Calendar Icon at the Bottom
3. Click on the Import calendar button, then choose From Directory
4. Use the Search box to find a calendar by Name or Email Address.
5. Click Add
A view of their calendar will appear. You will only be able to see based on the permissions they have set.

To share YOUR calendar with others or Change Sharing Permissions via OWA:

1. Log in to the Outlook Web App:
2. Click on the Calendar Icon at the Bottom
3. Click on Share
4. Enter a Name or Email Address and click Share.
5. Grant permissions for that person.
6. To Change Sharing Permissions, use the drop down box beside the name of the person who's permissions you are changing.
Settings are applied automatically. Invitations are Automatically Sent.

To share a non-person calendar you are the owner of with others via OWA:

1. Obviously you have to have appropriate permissions for the calendar in question.
2. Log into the OWA with your own credentials (UIUC netID / Active Directory password):
3. Click on your initials in the upper-right corner of the screen and select ‘Open Another Mailbox’
4. Type in the full address for the account in question. For example: Select ‘Open…’
5. Assuming you have the permission, the account will open. You will now be logged into OWA via the resource account.
6. To share a calendar, select the ‘Calendar’ icon in the lower-left.
7. Click on ‘Share’ near the top of the screen. From here you can Share, Change Sharing Permissions, or Change Publishing Settings (for calendars that have already been shared).
