You can either have the user manually share out the Calendar in Outlook, or you can give mailbox access in Exchange.

1. In Outlook, click on the Calendar tab, then click on Share My Calendar. Click Add, then assign permissions to the user who needs access to it. After doing this, go on the Outlook of the user who wants to see the Calendar, and click on Open a Shared Calendar. Type in the name of the user who is sharing the calendar, and it should appear. This is the idea way to do this, as it gives least permissions required.

2. You can alternatively give access to the entire mailbox of the other user through Active Directory. This is in the properties of the user -> Exchange Advanced -> Mailbox Rights. Make sure to add at least Full mailbox access. The user can then go in and open an additional account in Exchange.

This all assumes that you're using Exchange and that the profiles are connected to Exchange. Option 1 is the better option.

Are you on Exchange?

If you are, you just have to share the user's calendar and grant permissions to specific users to view, here are some steps:

- In Calendar, click on "Share my Calendar" under "Navigation"
- Click Add
- Type in name of user or select user from list.
- Click "Add" to add user
- Click OK
- Under "Permissions," set permission level of other user(s) to the calendar.
