In Outlook, you have the option to:

Share your calendar | Stop sharing your calendar | Share a calendar by publishing | Share your calendar in email | Additional information | Fix issues

Stop sharingyour calendar

At any time you can revoke access to your calendar.

Note:It may take a while for Microsoft 365 and the user's Outlook to sync and remove the view to your calendar

  1. SelectCalendar.

  2. On the ribbon, select the Folder tab, then selectCalendar Properties.

  3. Select the Permissions tab, and under Currently sharing with, select the user's name and then choose Remove.

  4. SelectOK.

Share a calendar by publishing it to a web page

If you have access to a web server that supports the World Wide Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) protocol, you can publish your calendar there.

Note:Not sure if your server supports WebDAV? Your server administrator or internet service provider (ISP) should be able to tell you.

  1. SelectCalendar.

  2. SelectHome > Publish Online > Publish to WebDAV Server.


    • If your email account uses Exchange, you will see Publish This Calendar, instead of the option to publish to a WebDAV server. This lets you publish your calendar directly to an Exchange Server. In the window that opens, select the publishing options you want, and click Start Publishing.

    • If you're using Microsoft 365, you can still publish your calendar to a WebDAV server, but you must first remove{Anonymous:CalendarSharingFreeBusySimple} from the sharing policy. This will prevent you from publishing your calendar to Exchange in the future, however.

  3. In the Location box, enter the location of the WebDAV server, select any other publishing options you want, and then selectOK.

Share your calendar in an email

If you don't want to give someone permissions to share your calendar and see updates, you can email a static copy of your calendar for a specific date range. The recipient will be able to see the events on your calendar at the time you sent the email, but not any updates you make after you send the email.

Note:This feature is no longer available with Outlook for Microsoft 365.

  1. SelectCalendar.

  2. SelectHome > E-mail Calendar.

The message also includes an attached iCalendar (.ics) file that they can open in Outlook or another calendar program. When the recipient clicks the iCalendar file, Outlook displays the file as a new calendar that they can view side-by-side with their calendar. They can drag appointments or meetings between the two calendars and find a time that works for both of you.

After sharing your calendar, have recipients review the following information about opening shared calendars.
