Office 365 - Outlook 2016 - Open a shared calendar associated with a shared mailbox

The Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016 desktop clients will natively recognize items that have been shared with you, such as mail folders, calendars, address books, and even fully delegated accounts.

If you have permissions to a shared mailbox, the shared calendar associated with the shared mailbox is automatically added to your My Calendars list.
  1. In Outlook 2016, select Calendar.
  2. In the folder pane, under My Calendars, select the shared calendar.

See the linked PDF file for documentation with images: Outlook 2013 Open shared mbox calendar.pdf. While the linked document references Outlook 2013, the behavior and appearance of Outlook 2016 is similar.

If you have questions, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 608.342.1400 or  You may also visit the Help Desk on the first floor of the Karrmann Library.
