Outlook diary


So my director has a Mac and would like to create a group calendar to be able to view meetings, add and edit meetings.

Firstly how do we create a group calendar on Mac?
How do we then copy existing meetings to this group? We would also need to create new meetings for this calendar?

Please let me know.

Kind Regards,

Hello Kubra,

Thank you for your question. I don't have my MacBook with me at the moment, but as soon as I can, I will have a look at your question and get back to you.

Kind regards

RE: Outlook diary

Hello Kubra,

Thanks for your patience. Firstly, to create a shared calendar, you first need to create a new user account (IT can help you with this). A designated person (your director?) then adds this account to their Outlook. This new account will of course include its own calendar, which can be shared with others. The owner of this account needs to set the relevant calendar permissions so that the group can at least view the calendar or even create and manage meetings.

Once this calendar is up and running, go back to the original calendar (your director’s presumably, so he/she would need to do this) and simply drag and drop existing meetings to the new calendar, which will be visible in the folder pane on the left of the Outlook window. Any new meetings are created in the new calendar.

Group members can also open this new calendar in their Outlook.

I hope this helps!

Kind regards
Marius Barnard

Outlook tip:

Choose an alternative signature – Outlook

a. This tip applies to Outlook 2000 onwards
b. If you use a default signature on your emails, but want to swap your signature on an individual mail message, you can right click anywhere on the signature within that e-mail message and a list of your signatures will appear. Click the one you want to use this time and the whole signature will be replaced with the alternative one you have just chosen.
