Office 365 - OWA - Create and Share an Office Hours Calendar

Instructions for creating a new calendar, adding office hours, and sharing it in the Outlook Web App.

1. Create a new calendar for your office hours with the following guide:

2. To share this calendar, and change who can view it, use the following documentation. Change the permissions to "Limited Details." Be sure to select your office hours calendar from the "Select a calendar" drop-down box, rather than leaving it as the default calendar.

3. After changing the permissions and clicking "Save," a URL will appear. This can be used to share your calendar with others - right click the URL and choose "Copy Link Location" to copy this link to your clipboard. 

Copy link location

You can paste this link or hyperlink it in an email or a webpage.

4. Add your office hours to this new calendar with the following guide:
