By Dan Kidd SharePoint has many interfaces with Microsoft Products that allows for the organization of information at a centralized location. The ability to overlay your calendars in Exchange on a SharePoint calendar is particularly useful. Any Calendar that is shared with you in Exchange/Outlook, can be overlaid onto a SharePoint Calendar. It should be noted that unlike the “Connect to Outlook” interface where you can update calendar in your Mail or SharePoint Calendar, then have them automatically synchronize; this interface one directional. When you update your mail calendar, the SharePoint Calendar will be updated, but updates to the SharePoint Calendar will not appear in your mail Calendar. The only other caveat being you must have access to the Calendars in Exchange with your credentials.
This is how it is done. First, select your Calendar then select the Calendar Tool Bar near the top.
Once the toolbar appears, click on the Calendar Overlay Icon.
Next select the New Calendar option.
Fill out the next page as described below:
5 – The Calendar Name can be anything, but be sure to select the Exchange Option. 6 – Enter the name of our current Outlook and Exchange servers exactly as shown. Using this method, you will always connect to your personal calendar in Mail. 7 - Select the “Always Show” then click Find. 8 – Once done, the tab is no longer busy, click OK on this page and the next.
Note: If you want to display another calendar, which is shared in your Mail, just aid an email address to your Outlook Access as shown.
When you are finished, you’ll get a SharePoint Calendar similar to the one below with your Mail Calendar displayed as such.
