Faculty, staff, and student employees may access shared calendars (mostly for conference rooms) in Office 365 Web Access and in the Outlook Desktop Client.


The permissions granted to you determine your ability to update a calendar:

  • Read-only access allows you to view existing entries, but it does not allow you to make changes.
  • Authors may create and edit their own entries.
  • Editors may add their own and all other entries.
